Actually this is one you can squarely lay at Obama's feet. As this is the result of Executive Orders it is one of the things he can legally change without anyone else being able to stop him or even force him to wait. As he has been President for 6 years and this is something he could change in 6 seconds by simply repealing it, it is his fault at this point.

Exactly. Its not as if he is shy from pointing it out

I've got a pen, and I've got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward

it is fair to blame the others, but its just as fair to blame obama for NOT taking action

for most companies its not viable as a - most cars dont currently run on biodiesel B - the cost of biodiesel, at least in my area is more than the cost of regular diesel and C - the infrastructure is not there for people willing to invest in it. As I said, I would LOVE to run on bio, or a tesla truthfully, they are beautiful, but realistically, ill be driving an ICE for many years and we should never go out of our way to artificially raise costs on fuel, which only hurts the poor.

well the reason for stripping these "apps" from the OS and putting them into the play framework is because of the OEM issue of taking forever to upgrade the phones. Lets be honest here, apps make the phones these days, and if the app cant be updated because verizon or whoever wont push out andoid (insert new version here) to your 2 year old, yet fully functioning phone, it eventually becomes worthless.

By taking the apps out of it, it allows them more control on the functionality of the phone, even if the framework does not get any help from the carriers

my google+ acct is pretty much only used for games. I have found that the majority of the android games I play make use of google + for logins, They dont force you to use them but i find it convenient to use it as i recall when my first droid crapped out all the save data was tied to the phone. im happy letting google think my sole function in life is to play plants vs zombies.

true, the choice is there, in my use case, first thing i do on a new phone is flash CM, and load gapps suite. I only use a handful of the apps ,but i dont ever come close to filling my storage so its just easier to load the suite. granted i know not everyone is that way but the sad truth is for many tasks, googles offerings are better than 3rd party apps. Navigation works beautiful, havent found a good replacement for that one yet.
