Legal Some people (you know who) predicted the Oracle-Google lawsuit would spell doom for Google and Android. Well, turns out this was all a huge fuss over nothing. Oracle's damages claim started at an idiotic $6 billion - but the final claim is less than $100 million. Oracle's patent trolling is turning into a huge failure of epic proportions.

Do some searching in the comments history and you'll probably find a number of quotes where I'm in fact very opposed to software patents.

The world isn't black and white and Apple users aren't all Steve Jobs clones.

So, you are in fact opposed to Apple's software patent trolling? You are glad that Apple pretty much lost most of its patent troll cases against Samsung?

That's a first for me. Good on you.
