Google crying over Nortel auction.

Google is accusing the consortium that outbid it for Nortel’s patents of colluding to weaken its Android OS, a claim the Internet giant may continue to voice as competition for mobile patents grows.

Well if they were so serious about them, they should have not played around with their bidding. Bidding pi and other stupidity, and now they cry? And also pretending that it is not so important to have them.... so them why the noise now, and why did they apparently also join up with Intel mid way through the process?

But the sting is this tweet from Brad Smith, senior legal council at Microsoft:

"Google says we bought Novell patents to keep them from Google. Really? We asked them to bid jointly with us. They said no." 4 August 2011.
