My Pimp (Google) Slapped Me

I’m gone on vacation.  I miss news for a couple of days. And now I read about Google pretty much killing custom ROMs for Android (at least for now).  What are you doing, Google?  I’m your b***h.  You’ve got me, okay?  I’m not going anywhere. But if you want me to enjoy having you as my pimp, don’t kill custom ROMs.  Don’t be stupid.  All you’re doing is angering some of your most diehard fans.  You want us to stay in your eco-system, not leave it.  Without a rooted ROMs, I have no reason to recommend any Android phone over the iPhone.  With it, I’m down with you, homey.

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, here are some links

Seriously, Google.  Don’t be stupid.   We already bought into your system.  You own us.  Don’t kill the best thing Android has going for it.

Reading this stuff makes me want to cry.  It’s like having your pimp loving you and giving you everything; all the nicest jewelry and cars.  And then he goes and slaps you for the first time.  That’s what Google did to me.  You slapped me, Google.  I feel betrayed.  I may forgive you, Google, but I won’t forget.
