A couple from Slate.com

Slate has a couple of really good tech related articles this week regarding Google's long-term stability based on its current business model (e.g. giving stuff away and relying on serach related advertising) and Motorola's homely and useless ROKR mobile phone; which proves you can't just slap Apple's name on something and expect the same sales/take rate as it applies to the form/functionality of the iPod. And for the record, it's an iTunes enabled phone (limited to storage of 100 songs which is useless), not an iPod phone as it if often advertised.
