Not really... Linux has basically 0 traction in the desktop market. There is OSX or Windows. OSX has basically 0 traction in the open systems server market, there is Windows or Linux. The various BSD distros have made noise every now and again from time to time, but they're an after thought, not a legitimate competitor (Solaris/FreeBSD/NetBSD/OSX/etc).

If they're smart, they'll take everything Blackberry had and then some. There's absolutely no reason they can't produce a better email experience interfacing with Exchange than any of their competitors have. There's STILL nothing that even comes close to the old Blackberry + BES + Exchange experience 10 years later, and that's sad.

100% this. Notice that Google announced Android Silver recently. All the sudden the head of that project gets fired, and Tizen mysteriously isn't shipping. The last time Samsung was "just about to ship", Google sold off Motorola and suddenly Samsung had delays.

It's absolutely Samsung's way of fighting back against Google pressure.

I hope your "no one was harmed" thing was tongue in cheek. First off, for the rest of these gentlemen's lives, a simple search on google will associate their name with the original news stories that may or may not be updated to prove their innocence. But MOST importantly - they were taken into custody and held against their will, after doing nothing wrong. And the police did this KNOWINGLY. Under any other circumstances that would be called kidnapping, and they would have grounds to civil recompense. The *ONLY* issue here is that they can't personally sue the police officers, which is something that needs to change in our justice system to curb this behavior.

That is a perfect example of you having no clue what you're talking about. The update for PRNG was *NOT* pushed through the play store. It was pushed via handset vendors at their discretion and the discretion of the mobile network operators who control what patches make it out of the gate. From the horse's mouth:

However, the patches issued by Google, which ensure that Android's OpenSSL PRNG is initialised correctly, thus fixing the bug, might not be within reach for all Bitcoin users who need to update their mobile operating systems as soon as possible. This is because, as Klyubin explained, the patches have been provided to "OHA partners".

The term "OHA partners" refers to the Open Handset Alliance, whose members include Android handset makers such as Samsung, HTC and Sony Ericsson, for example, and the respective mobile phone operators.

Though it's good that these phone makers received the patches, the concern for many Bitcoin users now is whether these partners will roll out the patches to their customer bases.
