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.

The lawsuit was meant to spur UI innovation (hear hear?) not add producing another array boring indistinguishable slabs.


How was Apple's lawsuit meant to "spur UI innovation"? I'm 99% sure it was meant to extinguish it. Unless you think Apple are the only one's capable of UI innovation.

That was irony, but reading mainstream press, this view seems to be dominating.

Yeah, sorry, sadly I thought you were being serious.

There really are naive people out there who have pretty much said that this lawsuit is a great wine for innovation, which just makes me want to vomit.
