Google One company's response to the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung was still missing: Google's. The company has now responded to The Verge, and there's almost a certain bitterness in their language. Not, as you would expect, directed at Apple; no, the bitterness is directed at Samsung. The message Google is sending to other Android OEMs? Stick to stock Android, and you'll have no problems.

As far as I can tell, the last time they introduced a significant innovation in the realm of hardware design, rather than "stealing" or buying it, was with the iPod click wheel and the iMac G4 in the early 2000s.

Hm, and if we were to accept the rules of contemporary patent system (well, Apple does seem to subscribe to those rules...), iPod click wheel might be not a very clear-cut example ;) (the middle section)

(plus, I suppose it might be seen as a natural evolution of "selection dials" placed on steering column, that some car radios had in the late 90s?)
