I'm getting downmodded because people don't understand technology. That doesn't bother me. I'll still correct them.
Google's behavior is what everybody from the linked article to the commenters here hates.
And what behavior is that? Providing a publishing standard that anybody can (and do) take advantage of, including their competitors, instead of requiring direct integration like Apple News?
