Legal "As was widely expected, the Federal Trade Commission announced this morning that it has reached a settlement agreement with Google, bringing the commission's antitrust investigations into the search giant to a close. Two different areas of Google's business were being explored: the way it prioritized search results, and the way that Google had sought injunctions against devices that were thought to have infringed upon standards-essential patents from Motorola." Would have loved to see the FRAND system crumble, though. Let the patent mess explode - to change the system, we need disruption, not appeasement.

Yeah, we were never going to agree on this one. You think Samsung stole from Apple, I think that's complete and utter bollocks until someone shows me evidence anyone ever came home with a Samsung phone instead of an iPhone, thinking it was an iPhone.

Luckily, the rest of the world is mostly on my side, save for a questionable jury in the US.
