Legal I'm supposed to be asleep right now, but this news kind of hit me like a ton of bricks: Oracle is suing Google over its Android mobile operating system, claiming it infringes on its patented Java technology. Not a good week to be Google, is it?

To add, MeeGo or even Android are also under a bigger patent threat from MS.

I don't see how that would be the case. Unless this is one of those "Linux infringes on SCO/Microsoft patent rights".

Clearly Android is under a bigger threat from Oracle than anybody is from Microsoft because, you know, Oracle is suing as we speak.

MS did sue HTC possibly using Linux related patents.
That is real too.
