Does it matter? This bug not being fixed reflects very poorly on google and android as a whole, not the carriers, or the manufacturers. Google should at least put up a patch and then leave it in the hands of the carriers to push it our or not. To not even bother making a fix just proves the android fragmentation problem is a serious issue.

Actually valuing soft skills over hard skills will prepare them perfectly for the job environment in the western business culture. Everything coming out of HR at my company is stating this. Soft skills are far more valuable than hard skills when it comes to job progression. If you're good bs'er you'll move up the corporate ladder far faster than the next guy regardless of your comparative hard skill level.
