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!

Someone should create a site where Gruber's posts are aggregated (easy enough to do using the RSS feed) & commenting is allowed... then see how long it takes for him to throw a hissy-fit over it.

On a completely unrelated topic, I see that "daringfanboy.net" is available.


Already been done. He threw a hissy fit, and had it taken down.

Ah fanboys, they're nothing if not predictable.

The cultofmac post doesn't give details, but I'd wager Gruber complained that the other site was a copyright infringement since it used his site's design and imagery.

If that weren't the case (and as long as there was no attempt to claim authorship of his posts), then there would't be anything "the Grube" could do about it.
