No, Google won’t kill Android yet (Alphabet City)



A report says Google may be looking at a Fuchsia future instead of Android or Chrome OS, but that seems unlikely. Meanwhile, Google gets smacked with a $5 billion fine by the European Commission for illegal practices. All that, plus your comments on this episode of Alphabet City!

    I understand where the EU is coming from, but remember, it is called GOOGLE Android. People are getting them for Google's software. But even if you missed that part, take one look at Samsung. Their devices come with their own browser, email client, calendar, etc. Hell, it even has its own app store! For someone living under a rock for the last 20 years, they could assume that Google's suite of apps is nothing but bloatware.

    Perhaps allowing users to disable/uninstall Google products on Android could be a solution? That way if you want your Galaxy to behave like a mid-00s flip phone with manufacturer exclusive software for some reason, you can.

    What blew me away is that google's motto was do no evil, and then after a little while, they decided to create a new parent company offshore and called it alphabet inc that had only 1 employee on site. If that isnt what pulling alpha BETTING moves looks like on the tax payers of the country that google was born inside of, you'd be hard pressed to find something that is. It's always about those always only paper god$ when examining gold fever.
