    On the one hand, f*** Google.

    On the other hand, this will probably piss off some fandroids who more than anything want Google to create exclusive services and content to gain a leg up on iOS. And pissed-off fandroids are always a good thing.

    (Seriously, I once had an argument with a guy who was certain that Google would make YouTube Channel content exclusive to Android. I tried explaining that doing that would hurt Google’s bottom line, but he couldn’t be convinced.)
