The Scary World of Google (& Other Tech News)

Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering at Google, stated the following in regard to Microsofts new Windows Phone 7 mobile OS:

"I think the screen shots I've seen are interesting, but look, the world doesn't need another platform. Android is free and open; I think the only reason you create another platform is for political reasons."
I get it Andy, you truly believe your product is the bees knees, but Microsoft is a technology company. They make software, which they sell, to make money. The future is mobile. Of course they are heavily invested in building a competitive mobile platform.

Competition (maybe even more importantly then benefiting the consumer) keeps the the market honest and healthy.

The fact that he doesn't seem to understand this makes me think the ideal world inside that guys head is a very scary place.
