Android as a moat protecting Google’s (advertising) castle; “advisor-tising” and the Infovalet

We exchange email a few years ago with my former CircLabs Inc. colleague, Jeff Vander Clute, about a blog post written by venture capitalist Bill Gurley. Gurley’s post  (LINK) which noted Google was giving away the Android operating system — and many things around it — because no one can compete with free and the mass adoption of these free services is making Google’s advertising business unassailable.  Six years later that assertion is mostly true.  Read the OLD POST.
