    Google to hand over Android Dev history to Apple!

    In the recent news:

    A federal judge in Chicago gave Apple keys to the Android vault this morning.

    Judge Richard Ponser ruled that Google and Motorola Mobility must share with Apple background information on the history of Android's development and Google’s in-progress acquisition of Motorola. The ruling is part of the ongoing patent litigation between Apple and Motorola. More importantly it pulls Google directly into the patent battle between Apple and Motorola.

    Google Inc. and a Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. unit were ordered by the U.S. judge presiding over an Apple Inc. patent lawsuit to turn over information about the development of Google’s Android operating system.

    The Motorola Mobility unit and Google must also hand over to Apple information about Google’s pending $12.5 billion acquisition of the mobile-phone maker, U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner in Chicago ruled yesterday. [...]

    “The Android/Motorola acquisition discovery is highly relevant to Apple’s claims and defenses,” Apple’s attorneys’ said in a March 2 filing requesting the judge’s order. — Bloomberg Giving Apple access to the entirety of the Android OS development history is like giving John Dillinger keys to the bank vault. If there’s any incriminating information, Apple will find it. Not to mention Steve Job’s famous accusation that Android is “a stolen product” could gain a considerable amount of traction pending on the contents of the documents Google hands over.

    Motorola argued that because Google’s acquisition is not complete the judge cannot force Google to follow the court order. Judge Ponser doesn’t agree with that argument in his ruling.

    "Pzebacz im, bo nie wiedzą, co czynią"
    "Прости им, они не ведают, что творят"
    "Perdona loro perché non sanno quello che fanno"
    "Vergib ihnen, denn sie wissen nicht, was sie tun"
    "Vergeef hen want ze weten niet wat ze doen"
    "Pardonne-leur car ils ne savent pas ce qu'ils font"
    "Perdónalos porque no saben que lo que hacen"
    "Oprosti im, jer ne znaju što čine"
    "Forgive them as they know not what they do"

    Good old Apple.....
