well, i am sorry you see it that way. i don't think Apple is a positive example, nor do i think was portraying Android in a particularly bad light. i was simply pointing out a vulnerability. but, evidently, i didn't do it clearly enough.
the last sentences of the paragraph you quoted are possibly of interest:
"Given the problems with Apple's inconsistent and anti-competitive decisions on iPhone applications, Google's openness has some benefits. But it also has some pitfalls."
but i still find it very difficult to see how the article is spreading "fear, uncertainty, and doubt". YMMV
