Legal Ah, so that's what Google's masterplan is regarding the defense of Android against the patent trolls. HTC has just launched a few more defensive patent lawsuits against Apple, and while that's by far no longer newsworthy, it is this one time. You see, HTC is suing Apple over 9 patents that have only very recently been transferred (namely, a week ago) from Google to HTC. The patents come from Palm, Motorola, and others. This means Google is giving away its patents to Android device makers. Nice of them.

That's like saying if "everyone" around are unethical crooks, just because laws are all screwed up, why not to be like that as well. Fail. Don't be a crook.

I think you've forgotten a few things... First, (un)ethical behavior is largely open to interpretation based on the individuals beliefs. Second, your *opinion that a company is doing something "unethical" doesn't automatically make them crooks. Lastly, if you're going to judge, judge everyone by the same stick -- you'll find that most companies have far more in common than not.

I don't argue that most are. Fortunately not all though, and those who prefer to be honest, deserve credit.
