Submission + - Google Seeks U.S. Ban on iPhones, iPads, Macs 1

theodp writes: Following up on an announcement that it would rid itself of 4,000 employees world-wide and renege on a deal with the State of Illinois, Google’s Motorola Mobility unit said it has filed a new patent-infringement case against Apple, which seeks a ban on U.S. imports of devices including the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers. 'Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers' innovations,' Motorola Mobility said in an e-mailed statement. All of this doing-no-evil may have taken its toll on Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who traded in some GOOG stock for a little walking-around-money and reportedly jetted off to Fiji on their very own 767 for a little R&R with friends and family on a superyacht.

    The tone of TFA is utterly hypocritical

    It is as if Apple has all its rights to file patent infringing cases against others, including that of the ridiculous "rounded corner" patent claim, others are not allowed to do similar things against the original evil, Apple Inc

    What has superyacht got to do with the patent filing case?

    Or is the TFA implying that only Apple chieftains have the exclusive right to enjoy the comfort of superyachts?

    Pfffffft !!
