Buzz by Tim O’Reilly from Buzz

A timely reality check from Tim O’Reilly (commenting on yesterday’s Apple-versus-Google NYT article)

That being said, competition is good for the industry, and Apple's rumored embrace of Microsoft will boost the competition between Microsoft and Google and keep things very interesting.
It's still sad that two great and innovative companies are at odds. And even sadder that Apple is letting spite trump business judgment, and closing their phone even further from the open web.
In the end, if the iPhone fails, it will be because closed systems have weaker adoption dynamics than open systems, not because Eric Schmidt betrayed Apple.
