This article from wired.com points out a recent business decision and its side-effects, both for the players - Google and Apple - and for the rest of us.
There is a lot to be said for having as many platforms to share your ad content with as possible. In fact, if revenue from ads is your main business model, then you can't not be on as many devices as possible.
The thing is, when you make your most killer apps on your competitors hardware you up the ante for your developers and users alike.
As a user and consumer I am glad to have choice, and happy that the pressure and heat of competition sometimes produces gems.

One thing I greatly appreciate after reading Stephen Fry's blog is the desirability off essays - well thought out, several 1000 word writings - which Stephen calls "blessays" with a capital b.
Not sure if Stephen coined the phrase, but I've never heard it before (and I did a Google search and his article came up near the very top, so in my mind he gets the credit) in any case he has a number these blessays, that is well thought out and rather long-winded dissertations, and I very much appreciate them.

"Companies and consumers have handed over a great deal of money to Microsoft. How are they repaid for their loyalty? A slap in the face and a tug on the wallet. This mess will not end well for Microsoft. It will, on the other hand, end well for the likes of Ubuntu and LibreOffice."
