Great time to be Gawker - $GOOG

Android  boss breaks up with girl. Girl starts with Google boss. Android boss decides to fuck the entire mobile strategy of the company. 

Good time to be a gossip columnist. 

Xiaomi is Google's worst-case scenario for Android: A company that has completely forked android, creating their own hugely-popular vertically integrated ecosystem. Coincidentally, contains zero Google services.

What will be the real 'fuck-u' to Google will be if Xiaomi (a company who has awesomely benefited from Google's subsidizing of the Android OS) gains traction outside of China, and Google finds itself in a position of having to pay Xiaomi to be the default search engine.

Drama can be fun.
