Google isn't evil

Kyle Baxter and clarifies his earlier blog post about Android.

When I wrote my piece explaining Google’s Android strategy, I wasn’t trying to vilify Google or explain why readers should abhor them; rather, I was trying to explain what they’re doing. I personally dislike their strategy (trying to commoditize your competition’s greatest advantage and then make money through advertising strikes me as lazy), and I think mobile devices will be better off if Apple’s paid market succeeds versus a web-like, advertising-based model, but that’s not evil. It’s just different than what I think is a good strategy and what will, in the end, be beneficial for users.
