Google One company's response to the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung was still missing: Google's. The company has now responded to The Verge, and there's almost a certain bitterness in their language. Not, as you would expect, directed at Apple; no, the bitterness is directed at Samsung. The message Google is sending to other Android OEMs? Stick to stock Android, and you'll have no problems.

Google decision to put back action at top left corner is brain-dead given the trend to expand screen size.


You do know that there is a back button at the bottom, right?

Is it visible in full screen apps?
Nevertheless it doesn't validate decision to put any meaningful iteration spot on top left corner.

That's the Up navigational control you are talking about. You can check this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwGHJJYBs0Q video to better understand Google decision to but it there and the difference between Back and Up navigation.

Yes it is. It can be turned "off" and can be temporarily hidden. (Temporarily - only when there is no user interaction with the screen)
