Steve Yegge is not happy with Google. Google is notorious for shutting down user-facing services, but they take the same approach to business-facing services with Google Cloud.

While my first instinct is to assume the California court got it completely wrong, I'm not sure that is the case. And if it will get rid of the flood of fake SD cards I will applaud.
