No, Sony bought another company (Gaikai) years ago. This acquisition happened today.
Put simply, electric vehicles don't meet my mission requirements: a midsize SUV or station wagon (think Chevrolet Equinox, Lexus RX, Subaru Outback) enclosed carrying capacity for stuff and/or people, able to travel 300+ miles at 70+ MPH away from the Interstate Highway System, and able to do it again in 15 minutes, indefinitely.
How far away from being able to do that are we?
Linux's strength is that is is Unix.
Or are you trying to provide an existence proof of Henry Spencer's famous saying: "Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it - poorly."?
No, not at all. In this case, though, it's not going in because of the animosity of one developer to all things Google. He didn't even bother to see what the change was about before shooting it down in flames.
The OS people are quite often right. Not this time, though.
Do you honestly think your vocal opposition would not stand in the way of another developer deciding to get it in?
Of course, you ignore the multitude of technical arguments against it, centering on its monolithic nature and its propensity to devour everything in its path.
I don't have a lot of strong feelings about systemd, but it does strike me as fundamentally failing to understand Unix.

Sounds like more browsers should be using it.
Better attention to its users than Debian is a low bar to clear. I'll agree that Ubuntu has its own problems in that area.
You say that as though it's a bad thing.
To each his own.
However, for folks who want their OS to actually pay attention to their needs, it's yet another nail in Debian's coffin.
Because it's yet another reason not to use them.
Actually, I use Linux Mint and OS X. Yes, I know Mint's an indirect Debian derivative, but 1) they derive directly from Ubuntu, which pays better attention to users, and 2) they don't call it GNU/Linux.
And Google has all of my details anyway; I switched from an iPhone to Android this last upgrade (a second-gen Moto X) because it integrates better with the stuff I was already using: Gmail, Google Voice, Google Calendar...
You know what? I'm not paranoid about Google. They don't care about me individually, and I opt out of their ad targeting. The rest I just don't care about.
Not that I was going to use a system that kowtows to RMS by calling itself GNU/Linux anyway, but the OS is there to support the software I use, and I use Chrome on Linux. If the OS won't support it, then I won't use it.
