Google "Here's a business riddle: divine Google's intentions for its largest-ever acquisition, the $12.5 billion purchase of the once-great, now-faltering Motorola Mobility. Motorola represents one of the thorniest strategic and operational challenges in Google's 14-year history. Oddly, few seem to be paying attention."

Project Glass?

Call me crazy but I think they needed access to Motorola's patents, and perhaps even their future designs, in part to make it easy to bring Project Glass to fruition. It's purely conjecture on my part, but it makes sense to me.

I'm sure someone out there will eventually find the golden egg by digging through Motorola's patent portfolio, and I'm curious to see exactly which patents and ideas Google could use going forward.
