Apple is throwing away an absolute competitive advantage over Google (ar.al/notes/apple-vs-google-on). To wit: it doesn’t have an absolute competitive advantage on performance, screen resolution, …, not even usability and experience.

I’d really love to know what exactly the US government (see cyberlaw.stanford.edu/blog/201) has threatened them with to make a trillion-dollar company like Apple with a fiduciary duty to its shareholders announce (and then double-down on) this decision.

@aral This is one of the things I keep telling the "but Apple is just as bad as Google" voices that chime in on my posts, but It's becoming a harder and harder position to hold because of some of these business decisions (that honestly make no sense -- clearly there's some context I'm missing behind the scenes)
