    Looking at the oddities around Google's (GOOG) Nexus One handset marketing - sold online instead of where people can hold it, with little or no advertising - and its setbacks (like Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) backing away), Jeff Bertolucci asks: Was it meant to be a flop? That is, as just a traction grabber for Android (at which it's been a success)?

    Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) backed off its plans to offer service for the Nexus One handset from Google (GOOG -2%) - which may be signaling Verizon views Google as more of a competitor than a partner. Up until this morning, the Nexus One site said the phone was coming to Verizon.

    Ever since Google (GOOG) disclosed in January that internet intruders had stolen information from its computers, the exact nature and extent of the theft has been a company secret. But a source now says that the losses included a password system that controls access by millions of users worldwide to almost all of Google's web services, including e-mail and business applications.
