Legal It looks like Google has a serious lawsuit up its tailpipe. Skyhook Wireless, the company that develops technologies for determining the location of cell phones and similar devices, has filed a patent infringement and a tortious interference lawsuit against the search giant, claiming Google's interference cost Skyhook tens of millions of dollars.

Skyhook have no claim, as competition is a good thing, and I would much rather have quality applications developed by google on my android than some third-party manufacturer who would probably add bloatware.

Plus, google is not evil if you have nothing to hide.
They can have all my information, sell it to advertisers, I do not care.
I consider it payment for all of their wonderful services.

Ah the old, lame "nothing to hide" excuse. Even if what you are doing is perfectly legal, it doesn't follow that you want it to be public information. If you beg to differ, would you let me install a camera in your bedroom, woegjiub? I'd like to publish your facial expressions at the moment of climax during your lovemaking. If you've got nothing to hide, this shouldn't meet any objections on your side.
