MG Siegler on Google’s statement that Motorola will be left as a separate company and will not change their relationship with other Android partners:
I actually believe that Google believes that (or at least that many higher-ups at Google believe that). I just don’t believe it will be possible. And I think that eventually, Google will recognize that it won’t be possible.
His entire post is spot on. Google is not trying to lie to others — no — Google is believing a lie they told to themselves and is in turn telling that lie (unknowingly) to others as a truth. You should really read his entire post to see what I am talking about.
