Google Google's big Android chief Andy Rubin has given an interview to PC Magazine, in which he touches on some interesting topics. Sadly, PC Magazine didn't ask about the patent situation and why Google is seemingly letting its OEMs fend for themselves, but there's still a lot of other interesting stuff in there.

How about every single company in the business ?

If you want to mention a list but not the entirety of said list, it is an entirely normal practice to mention only the two or three most important items on said list followed or preceded by a list indicator such as "like" or "among others".

Honestly, Thom, you have such wonderful justifications for your bias.

The largest mobile software/hardware company using patents to defend it's turf is not Apple and it's certainly not Microsoft, it's Nokia, arguably followed by Motorola.

In fact, the only top tier mobile company not current patent trolling in the mobile space is RIM (maybe because their Canadian and think the whole thing is stupid).

The fact that you single out companies that you've previously railed against for one reason or another does not help your credibility on this point.


PS. That's not to say Apple or Microsoft are guiltless, clearly their playing the game, but it's a game everyone else is participating in.

Considering the connection to Google and Android, Microsoft and Apple are good examples.

Motorola and Nokia didn't sue any Android-maker that I know of. Google (directly and by proxy) are being targeted by Oracle, Microsoft and Apple. Those are the big names if you want to talk about Googles part in this.
