    Android developers are furious about Google's changes to the way search works in the Android application marketplace.

    The changes were put into place on 1 July, and since then, a lot of previously very popular applications have now effectively disappeared.

    Success\fame brings arrogance. News Int for e.g. Previous Labour Party. Bankers. I got shot of my android Asus Transformer because in the end, it just does not do what I have got used to with Windows software. I think I am too old and take comfort from things I am familiar with but certainly, Android is far from perfect. The only thing that worked faultlessy was Angry Birds.

    One day Google will fall, probably when everyone realises just how much info it has on all of us and what it ends up doing with that information. Google will be able to sway democratic nations in the same way as Murdock could sway voters.
    They could hold countries to ransom if they so chose in my view so upsetting a few million app users is not high on their Todo list to sort.
