"amusing to see how the invisible hand almost always corrects problems before regulators can get to them." And with much less of a stifling effect. That's why benign neglect is sometimes better than well-intended intervention.

Welcome, but not unexpected
As I started reading your article, I thought, "maybe this will get Google out of hot water in Europe", but you beat me to it one sentence later! Now, poor little Microsoft won't be shut out by big, bad, Google anymore.  In a world where everybody's apps run on everyone else's operating systems and platforms, this announcement from Cyanogen, although interesting and exciting, can't really be said to be much of a surprise. It's of amusing to see how the invisible hand almost always corrects problems before regulators can get to them. My only gripe is that Android seems to forking and evolving so quickly that it's almost impossible to find decent documentation on some devices.
