Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

The problem people have with Google's "open source" policy is apparently they can take it close sourced to behave like a proprietary development house and rush development they need to rapidly add based on competition, and then they can take their time cleaning it up, and then, presumably, they can "close source" it again at any point if they can rationalize it (needed to add features, support a device, speed development) -- and the Google advocates will do the apologizing for them.
