Well Captain Donut Hole, I'm going to go out on a wild and wacky limb here with a guess that by "beginning" he means Android's inception, which took place prior to Google acquiring it. And since that day, up until Eric "the snake" Schmidt was blessed with his great idea to shoehorn Android behind a touchscreen, the form factor for which Android was designed was definitely NOT a touchscreen. Here's the original turd: And their long-term strategy: So far as iOs is concerned, Apple had conceived and was planning the iPad BEFORE the iPhone became an idea. So by saying that iOs was designed for a tablet form factor is DEAD ON. Dumb-dumbs should never even pretend to be smartasses.

Oh hell no, Google rapes you every which way from Sunday! And they want more! Just wait for the Verizon Google gaggle to gain momentum. Seriously people, how deep does a d!ck need to be in your arse before you can feel it? Quit bending over so easily for the likes of Google and wake up!

Google's "Chrome agenda" is to analyze and monetize your every move, to target users with adware. Their commitment to "open" is a tactic to lure the idealist tech mob into their corner (aka shut'em up by blinding them with feigned altruism), and lo and behold it's working.
