No surprise, I’m with Gruber on this.
Could Pichai’s response be any more lukewarm? He’s not really taking a stand, and the things he’s posing as questions aren’t actually in question. I’m glad he chimed in at all, and that he seems to be leaning toward Apple’s side, but this could be a lot stronger.
I love G+, but I don’t really have much faith in Google as a company.
