Mobile Nations 10: The F-word


I feel bad for Phil. There is clearly a issue in the android world and he was trying to defend those issue, when he has no control over how screwed up the manufactures and carriers are.

Phil had to do some serious tap dancing on that podcast.
Trying so hard to ignore the cold hard truth: Google doesn't care about fragmentation. All Google cares about is ad revenue. And that doesn't require the latest version of Android. Just ask Amazon, the new King of Amazon Forkers.
