Just make great stuff and ignore the critics.

I don't know much about this, but I still haven't had any security problems with my Mac, ever. And neither has anyone else that I know of. On the other hand, EVERY Windows user I know has.

So I'm just saying.

I'd be totally geeked by this. I'm so over Google, but there's no better search.

I hate to say this

but they should really just stop trying. Not everyone needs to make an iPhone competetor. They should stick to what they're good at.
