Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Yes, but what if Google wins, wins and wins over others?

I think, it is simply the question of the balance, and American system wins over Google here, not Apple.

Google should not be a pure monopoly and sometimes should fail, even if just in decency.

p.s.: BTW, I really hate this search widget, because I cannot simply get rid of it in ICS. ICS forces me to have it on every home screen. That's why I use third-party launcher on my Galaxy Nexus, without Google Search widget, and this fix will not touch me in any way. ;)
