Maybe it looks like they lost billions at first glance, but it must be those patents were worth something!

The patent office has done a miserable job of granting ridiculous patents. It looks like some of Apple's key patents are headed to the rubbish bin. Unfortunately innovation through litigation has long legs. There is movement to introduce new legislation to rid us of patent trolls.

Yes, so far Motorola's patents haven't been valuable to Google, but you never know what tomorrow brings.

One of the key patents that Apple used to slam Samsung has been discounted by the patent office, Apple can contest that decision but it looks like they're done for. So then, going forward what happens to Apple's massive award from the trial? And now there's more litigation on the way.

It's been in the news for a long time, the results of trials all over the world.

How about we take the Google talk to a Member's Lounge thread and leave Jason his space?

I know that it's been in the news, LOL. Again, as I had originally said, I don't think Google has been disappointed in the deal. If you have evidence to the contrary, I'd be glad to hear it.

You two have turned this great Schiit thread into something completely off topic and frankly utterly boring.
Thanks for your bad Schiit. Now sign off.

Agreed. This thread should just be Jason's blog and nothing else. Any commentary from others should be in a sub-forum probably.

If you're bored, I guess you might as well sign off.

Learn to state your case politely at it will be received with respect.
