You are taking examples that are not a market monopoly, Search is an example that they can't do whatever they want, any example you find that say they can do watherver they want with that technology, doesn't make true: the parent comment "Making products work with only your products is legal" there are situations where that isn't true. The situation here is, was iTunes to big so they can't do whatever they wanted?
Say that to Google, they don't have the right to make their search products to only work with their browser or OSs, monopoly regulations will start to hit them. What did Apple wrong?, I can't say for sure, IANAL and apparently they will try an appeal, but was Apple music service big enough at the time they started screwing with other companies trying to enter the market? maybe, maybe not.
It ia a joke analogy, I know but the main idea is that your deals doesn't give you a blank cheque to do anything above the law, as I said, "if that was the case"
Continuing with the joke analogy, If the killer don't agree to kill the husband, the customer, the wife, will not get access to enjoy the money from the inheritance either
"Your Honor, I ended up killing him, It was absolutely necessary given deals I had with his wife to patch her problems"
A secret deal is not an excuse to screw illegaly your customers, if that was the case.
Public Key pinning is a small first step in the right direction, I think the problem is the first connection with the site, hopefuly something with DNSSEC could be added to help more
Yea sure, business will want to unblock Facebook on their proxies just because you have a "For Work" version. It will not happen.
In my understanding of the Android docs and this blog, yes it can have one, Google Wallet use the harware secure element on supported devices. Recent Android releases added APIs too, for applications to emulate cards without access to the secure element, pure CPU based implementations, less secure but still an option.

Until someone use one of those remote vulnerabilities that were used previously to jailbreak phones for malware (I remember one that did the jailbreak with just visiting a web page). We are talking about China here, so if this is some kind of government sponsored attack, they probably already have unreported security bugs at their disposal. It is true that iPhone security has being enhanced with every release, but at the same time code size has increased, so It must be something in ther to do more damage with enough resources
Because firmware updates become difficult, instead of binary differences between releases, you need a full fledged package manager and dependecy resolution to update the phone
Yahoo has something to tell you about their $250,000 per day fine if they didn't accept PRISM
The skype bug was not a skype bug, but one on some qualcomm camera driver that locked up using a lot of CPU, It had nothing to do with Android multitasking APIs
Google, stop chaging people that uses inum, those are SIP endpoints so it is wrong to charge money for a connection that is direct between SIP user agents, if not, don't complain about the lack of Net neutrality. You are giving advantage to people on your own IP network (Hangouts users) that those outside that want to communicate with Hangouts users.
