Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y The Google-Microsoft patent war of words is continuing. Yesterday, Google (rightfully so, in my book) accused Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle partaking in an organised patent attack against Android, instead of competing on merit, claiming that they bought up Novell's and Nortel's patents solely to attack Android and its device makers. Microsoft struck back, claiming Google was offered to join in on the bids for the Novell patents, but rejected the offer. Google has now responded to this accusation - and to make matters even more confusing, Microsoft responded back. A public shouting match between two powerful parties? Count me in!

Google and apple/Microsoft are trying to screw someone over... Except Apple/Microsoft are using the broken software patent system and google are just tryin to outright steal... Neither is right, they are just big business doing what big business does best...

In all honestly it doesn't really matter to the consumer... Juat buy the Apple/Microsoft/Android device of your choice and let your wallet decide.

I've made my choice, I'm happy... I'm pretty sure others are happy with their choice too ;)
