MG Siegler, summing up his thoughts on Verizon disallowing Google Wallet on the Galaxy Nexus:
Long story shorter: you get in bed with the devil, the devil fucks you.
Long story shortest: “open”.
But it’s Android!1 Open is better -- it’s more customizable and liberating! Myself, I’ll take Apple’s iron-fisted QA any day.
The irony in this is, as Siegler points out, the Nexus series is supposed to run the unadulterated version of Android. ↩
