    It looks like the Motorola buyout by Google is almost a full done deal. There was a 99% consensus from the shareholders to move this deal forward for finalization, which would be approval by the Federal Government. I must ask... since the shareholders stand to make a lot of money from this acquisition, who in their right mind would be in the 1% to say no to this deal?

    I guess maybe Beavis and Butthead were shareholders...

    Here's the full press release:

    If people had voted no, Google would need to raise its offer so I'm not sure that the 99% were so smart.

    Is great for the industry

    Because Microsoft and Apple together do bad things with the software and design patents versus the anothers companies like HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, etc who use Android platform. Google with motorola s patents will secure android with that type of policy from Redmond and Cupertino.
