|I thought you were different.|
I thought you were different from all those other companies out there who fuck me and take my money for inferior products and proprietary bullshit. I dreamed of an all google world, where I could freeload to my hearts content and never leave the safety of the google bubble. Google Chrome, Chrome OS, Gmail, Talk, Listen, Android... You had it all. I rushed out and bought an android phone, turned out to be sort of slow. Oh well, I thought, they'll make it better. But wait! It's open source, maybe someone already has! Then I found cyanogen. He took my barely passable iphone knock-off and turned it into a blazingly fast palm top computer. These were the halcyon days.
Yesterday Google, you did something I can never forgive you for. You sent a cease and desist letter to Cyanogen. Because he put your apps in his OS. Not that gmail, youtube, and gmaps aren't free already in a browser. I understand you get licensing fees from carriers, and yet, I FUCKING PAID THEM AND CYAN ONLY DEVELOPS FOR GEXPERIENCE PHONES MEANING EVERY GODDAMN PHONE THAT HAS CM STARTED OFF WITH GOOGLE APPS IN THE FIRST GODDAMN PLACE YOU ALREADY GOT YOUR FUCKING MONEY.
I was excited, now I'm appalled. It turns out you're just like microsoft, and even more like apple. You used to say "Don't be evil". Fuck you google. Fuck you with a long, thick, splintering pole. You fucking carpetbaggers. You tricked me with your open source spin. You won't just make your apps available for purchase so I can run a barebones build of cyanogen's mod and download your apps later, either, will you, you fucking philistines.
