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?

Its a good thing? Come on! Imagine the title of this item if iphone was using java:

"Oracle sues Google and Apple over Java in Android and iOS"

It would've been much more fun.

Absolutely! It's not like Java is the currently the most popular language, already familiar to millions of software developers, provides thousands of well-documented libraries, and would allow for developing iPhone applications from any desktop with a JVM.
