"Part of being open is that people are going to do things with" Android, Rubin said. "People are going to do dumb things with it. And if they are actually dumb, it'll fail. But if they build something that's awesome, I can learn from it. ... It's a mistake to think that one company can create the world's inventions."

Some interesting bits of info in this article -- including the fact that +Andy Rubin built a robot whose sole function is to inscribe the Android logo into the foam of Googlers' coffee. 

(The robot runs on Android-based software, of course.)
