"How did the goal of Android evolve after it was brought into
Rubin: The goal was pretty much the same, the business model
obviously changed. Google's business model is deep into
advertising, and so for Google this is purely a scale of the
business, we just want to reach more people, and hopefully they'll
use Google and we'll get the upside of the advertising revenue.
"By the way, we're confident enough in our advertising business
and our ability to help people find information that we don't
somehow demand they use Google. If somebody wants to use Android to
build a Yahoo phone, great."
