    The question is will the competition make Apple better - or for that matter MS? I think this a great thing.

    I just hope it won't limit the amount Google works with Apple (iPhone compatible web-apps for example)...

    Yes, a danger to be certain. Am I one of a few people who would rather see a friendly rivalry and competition rather than a Google/Apple merger?

    I don't know if Google has the clout to pull of what they want. They want to neutralize the amount of control the carriers have over the operating system of the phone. It's one thing to make your own phone and offer it to a carrier but it's another to simply offer an operating system.

    I don't see it affecting Apple who has the lock on the hardware and software and has one of Google's founders on its board of directors.
