I just wish he'd not done the "I turned down Star Wars out of loyalty to Trek" speech - lies and bullshit are the way things work in Hollywood, but it doesn't make it any less distasteful.
Eh, we don't know what changed between then and now. At the time the comment may have been genuine.
It's like coaches in major college sports who are being courted by other schools or the pros. The rule of thumb is, whenever they say they're not going anywhere, expect them to be out of there within the month. Latest case in point: Oregon and Chip Kelly.

At least Abrams doesn't have to be exclusive to his new gig.

And we can guess with some confidence about what changed his mind between then and now. Probably some concessions to him about creative control and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. And he did what any of us would've done in that case.
