WTF? Google is starting to threat non-android OSes?
"TAIPEI -(Dow Jones)- Taiwanese PC maker Acer Inc., (2353.TW) which had planned to unveil a smartphone Thursday using software from Chinese Internet firm Alibaba Group, said it is cancelling a press conference to launch the device after its existing partner, Google Inc. (GOOG), expressed concerns about the smartphone.
Alibaba said that Acer "was notified by Google that if the product runs Aliyun OS, Google will terminate its Android- related cooperation and other technology licensing with our partner....We regret Google's action."
"Don't be evil"
HAH! (blackmailing isn't evil, right?)
Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft are basically the same - profit and power over morale (like all other corporations).
