I knew this was coming. I mean, why else would Google, the producer of Android, buy Motorola Mobility? And as I had foreseen, it was to crush Apple.
The suit would ban the import of iPads, iPhones, and Macs. Yup, it’s all made in China and if the Google/Motorola suit is upheld, it means Apple stores will be empty, just in time for the holidays.
When Google bought Motorola Mobility I knew what they really wanted, the treasure trove of over 15,000 patents having to do with cellular telephony.
And sure enough – here they go! I also suspect we’ll see Google/Motorola branded handsets with the latest Android coming onto the market shortly.
It’s funny -I heard about Apple going after Samsung. And I have a dog in this fight as I own two Samsung product and two Apple products. When the news then broke that Google was buying the assets of Motorola Mobility and those assets included a trove of patents, I knew it wouldn’t be long before Google moved in for the kill.
And Apple – they could have played nicely and licensed the tech. But they told Motorola/Google to go get fucked. And then they turned around and sued Samsung.
If I was an Apple shareholder I’d be asking some very pointed questions right now. Because this really could be the death knell for Apple.
