Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

I am a Galaxy Nexus owner... my bootloader is unlocked, and my rom is custom. My phone will never see this patch, so f**k 'em ;)

It also makes me wonder if it'll take Verizon 6-8 months to roll out this patch to all of its customers, as it does most other updates.
