Report: Google, DoCoMo Working on Deal

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month, DoCoMo joined the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of 34
| companies that have pledged to work with Google and its Android platform.

Again they approach a Microsoft shill for a comment (Michael Gartnenberg is a
former Microsoft employee and an active astroturfer).

Quote for the day:

"At bottom, the Open Source movement is an expression of the Western academic
tradition, innovation and discovery through the free exchange of ideas. You
rig that system at your peril. You have only to look at the stagnation of
Soviet science and industry under a centralized autocratic system, versus the
innovation that happened in our free markets, to see what fate you have in
store for yourselves if you succeed."
