David Pogue in the NY Times on the “Android Army” writes about criticism of his review of Nexus:
The most plausible theory, though, is that Google’s Android phone software is a more open and hackable operating system than the proprietary software on the iPhone, BlackBerry or Palm. Therefore, Android appeals to precisely the sort of frustrated, anti-establishment people who have no trouble writing abusive notes. It brings them out of the woodwork, gives them a new counterculture champion.
My new phrase for today. Ironically, I noticed even P K Dick’s family is suing google over the Android and Nexus terms!
