If I was the head of Google I would ridicule Asus like crazy and suspend sales until the issue has actually been fixed. I don't think it is a secret that there is a nice hefty contract between Google and Asus to produce the Nexus 7 but it seems they half ass it. Personally I think this is much more damaging to Google as opposed to Asus. None the less I still like my Android and Asus will never get any of my money. The transformer infinity or anything in the future does not deserve my attention.
You know I am still surprised how these companies can screw things up so royally and say there is nothing they can do but when I made a small mistake at work during my training period I nearly got fired. That is how the world works, but I will simply choose to be an informed customer and not put up with a company's stupidity and not have them profit on my back. I guess just a rant that has been around my head. I would love to see some more rants for who do you think screwed the nexus 7 up?
I gotta say that I disagree on this. I think overall they have done a great job on this product. Their screw ups aren't nearly as bad as some of the other product launches I've seen, (Xbox 360 and iPhone 4 come to mind) as they are more or less relatively minor manufacturing errors rather than major design flaws.
