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!

What about Apple stealing

I keep seeing many people regarding Google as thieves. So is anyone going to acknowledge that Apple has done the exact same thing? Either they are both guilty of "stealing" or they are both not. They have both taken ideas from others in the market and its really not fair to single out Google for the behavior and not Apple.
