You can't create a seamless platform where everything works the same if you
give the developers three ways to do the same thing.

I feel I have been very clear about what I meant about ownership. It would be
disingenuous to continue to suggest that I meant anything other than the
design of the device and the platform when I referred to "his device."

And again, I feel I have made my position very clear in my previous email to
you. I agree with you that you should be able to paint your car any colour you
want, and I have stated clearly that it should be technically straightforward
to put your own software on the thing.
