Interesting read, as is the comment below by modelportfolio2003.

Search is critical to Google, with Android very important, but just one of the ways to drive custom to their search and advertising, so while Page was choosing his words with an eye to the lawsuit, he's probably right.

Very interesting read here (PDF).

Explains Google's position very clearly on why they think APIs cannot be copyrighted, only their implementation can.

Ouch how insulting, not critical to their business model and Android and is kicking the snot out of the competition. Competing OS should worry the day Google makes Android critical the their business model.

Page said it himself. So he did the insulting. Kicking the snot out of windows phone & blackberry, sure, that's about it.

Right that was obvious from OP. The insult was to his competition.

Windows won't gain a 1/3 of the traction as android & iOS. Too late to the game.
