Google Mkt cap 230B, mickie D's 89B. You got it reversed... Don't think Google would consider McDonalds consistent with their company image.

I think Google is aiming for the IP and talents, not the actual brands.

assume the patents cost 30% premuim Synergy has to produce another 26% to make this worth it. + the abbility to raise hammers to apples capacitive touch patents (better than gold!)

Patents are corperate hammers. The one with the most hammers wins.

Moto wins, Google wins, and I believe that the consumer wins. Now if Google can use some of their clout to revive some US Moto factories... OK, that's wishful thinking..

It is bad because Google is now the judge and plaintiff but it is also good because Android is saved from lawyers

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
