Two things.

One - shit obviously happens in closed source world, Windows has a looong security history for instance. Security by obscurity is not something that will work.

Two - if you are so much afraid of IoT, just don't plug your toaster to your WiFi. If someone does that, they open themselves to sliced bread attacks on their own peril. You are not forced to do so.

What about the freedom of hundreds of employees to feel uncomfortable working for someone who is advocating against you?

I'm sorry, but this is just the way life is. You don't always work for nice people and if it bothers you -- usually YOU switch jobs, not them.
In my opinion, Eich stepping down is quite honorable even though I might not agree with his world view.

I'd love an online service that I'd charge occasionally with some money and when I go to a site that pays its bills via ads, it is paid from my account that $0,001 and all the ads are hidden.
Since no one seems to want my money enough to come up with a solution like that -- I keep using AdBlock. I won't buy anything because of those ugly ads, anyway.

I don't think they have just one monopoly product. Sure, search is huge. But what about Android. What about advertisement potential of data gathered through Analytics. What about Apps and App Engine? Or even the infamous Plus. They have numerous products that are quite successful and that not all of their products are like that? It's a good thing they're trying new ideas out.
