    Today Apple added a little twist to their battle against Motorola. According to the headlines, Apple wants the courts to hold off judgment in this case untill Google is done buying Motorola. They claim whenever this merger is over, Motorola will have no right to the lawsuits they are currently fighting Apple over.
    Now some of you might not be aware of this, but Google gets control of Motorola's patents and that is essentially what Apple is banking on at this point.
    Here is a quote from the original article:
    The court dates are set for next year, so we will have to wait and see what happens in the end.

    If Apple could patent oxygen they would and charge a premium for breathing it.

    I certainly hope they don't win anything in this case. They just feel threatened by the success of Android and were hoping to take down a major player. I get the reasons why they wanted to hold off till the Google/Moto deal goes through, I just hope Google doesn't put up with any "crapple".

    "I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on."

    Apple is a garbage company and if they can't compete they cry and sew. One of those types You wanted to beat up in school but knew the parents would stop at nothing to sew You for everything.

    So what you are saying is that Apple is delusional? And then you go on to say that they are making baseless claims and trying to tackle the competitor at the wrong time? And you continue on with the fact that apple should be arrested? Interesting points, OTR. hahahaha

    I really think Apple is damaging their own reputation with all these lawsuits. I hope they keep it up so they keep coming across as whiny cry babies. Google and the Android juggernaut have them running scared and all they can do is throw around shady lawsuits. PATHETIC.

    I understand wanting to protect their properties, but hearing about Apple suing over and over is getting ridiculous to me. There needs to be some middle ground met somewhere where innovation can still flourish.
