Google Announces OpenSearch Alliance: Helping Search Also-Rans

Fake Steve on Google’s OpenSo­cial project and hand­set alliance:

Com­pa­nies don’t form alliances and con­sor­tia when they’re winning.

…When­ev­er you see com­pa­nies start talk­ing about being “open,” it means they’re get­ting their ass kicked. You think Google will be form­ing an OpenSearch alliance any time soon, to help also-rans in search get a share of the spoils? Me neither.
