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.

And Android is also vulnerable to Microsoft's patents, but nearly every Android device maker has already reached agreement with Microsoft to license those patents.

They won't be for very much longer when this plays out. That's what makes it funny.

Google's "brilliant" leadership was baited by Apple and Microsoft into buying the failing Motorola for 12 billion dollars for a bunch of FRAND patents.

The rather desperate view is that they baited Google into buying Motorola because Microsoft and Apple failed in buying it. The reality is anything but.

Why would Android OEMs stop paying Microsoft licensing because Google's subsidiary Motorola is suing Apple and may or may not get an affirmative decision 2 or 3 years from now? What is your definition of "very much longer"?
