Google This I didn't expect. While we've had individual people high up Google's chain of command speak out, there wasn't yet any form of official response to the patent shenanigans surrounding Android. For the first time, the company has posted on the official Google Blog about the issue, and the company is clear. Several companies, including Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle, are working together to attack Android through patents. Google is not going to sit back and take it, though. Update: Stuff just got real. Popcorn! Or better yet, coffee!

"I guess Google is up to its old tricks, trying to play the victim.

Wow, imagine how similar Google and Apple are in that respect.

Sorry...but I think deliberately saying no to a partnership, then complaining that said partnership was trying to keep patents away from you...well...that merits immediate induction into the Victims Roleplay Hall of Fame.
