Did Google ONLY buy Motorola for its patents and other IP? Then Motorola would be better served to be spun out somehow into a separate company again (with access to all it's former IP). If Google has no intention of letting Motorola truly compete with Samsung why keep it held hostage?

Well, ain't that ironic. Many of those people who generated the 17k patents and ip are getting served up pink slips. It would be nice if Apple and Google could figure out how to be profitable without plundering their communities.

One third of job cut in US... pretty sad but that seems to be expected. How the American employees can add values to the company? It is ironic that many big and successful business sectors are US companies and they generate quite impressive revenue but those can't really be beneficial to general employees in US as the money basically is making out of the cheap workforce outside US!

I just hope Motorola doesn't lose all of it's personality as it becomes part of Google. It was a great company at one time.

It's bad news for the people who are going to be laid off really. We should not care much for Obama's prospects as a result of this (or Romney's for that matter).

I think this was inevitable, albeit terribly sad for the people who are going to be laid off. PS. I believe that concentrating on higher end models would give more confidence to other Android platform manufacturers. Google should not compete head-on with other Android platform manufacturers, otherwise Android will lose its appeal.

"Really bad news for Obama. Now, the unemployment will tick up as the Bureau of Labor will add that up as lost jobs. Can someone ask Google to hold on?" Great, now we have supposedly well-educated professionals who espouse that private industry should intentionally mislead the electorate for one party's political gain...did you ever stop to think that if that very same party lived up to its promises that unemployment would be 6% or less by the end of his first term that such lies would be unnecessary?

"Adding additional sensors with additional software features" is what everybody else in the business is doing. Take your conclusions.

Let Google open VC funds for some MOT staff. It is tough to be an employee in this age. Nothing is guaranteed.
