The Guardian (Emily Bell):
Brin’s contention that censorship and “walled gardens”, such as Apple’s operating systems and Facebook’s world of applications, will throttle the world of free and linked information on which Google has built its fortune may be right. But it is also the case that many see Google’s credibility and reliability as a standard bearer for the open web as increasingly compromised.
Brin is just scared that people won’t let them track their every move in order for them to sell ads. It’s that simple. The Google ‘Openness” is nothing more than a cry for help.
