How about APIs

Google also uses Play Store to force developers into using crippled APIs. This has been dumbing down phones from powerful Linux computers to web terminals. I have purchased apps that have become technically impossible to run.

Google says it's "for security" even though AOSP has a permissions management system. It's really about Google bottlenecking data through themselves at any cost, even if it kills the Android platform.
