Google's iron grip on Android

Awesome in-depth piece by APK teardown specialist and all-round Android aficionado, Ron Amadeo. I think that to genuinely believe that Android is still a truly open source platform, even the way it ships on the more recent Nexus devices, is folly. It’s not as strict as iOS, but it’s clear that Google is taking steps to take back more and more control and dictate terms the way it thinks best for its own good. It’s not wrong, just slightly hypocritical to not acknowledge the change, whoever you may be.
