Legal Ding ding ding ding - I think we have a record here. Launched yesterday, Google Wallet has already attracted a lawsuit. While patent lawsuits are teh shizzle these days, this lawsuit is a little different, so sadly I can't trot out my usual 'software patents bad' lines (aww). PayPal has sued Google over its Wallet service, claiming that one key former PayPal executive who accepted a job at Google took trade secrets with him.

Important Battle

This battle over controlling web payments is one of the most important ever for these businesses. Funny thing is, I've heard about so many problems with Paypal (without a proper greivance procedure) and I don't trust Google with personal data either (your data is their business model). Oh well.
