In the never ending move to expand it’s empire, and hopefully step on less toes in the computing industry, search engine giant Google expands yet again by acquiring Motorola Mobility. This may be a sign of their race to get some share of the mobile market ruled by Apple Inc. and others who are using their Android platform but it may simply be a move to end their never ending nagging with them regarding patents and others.
The acquisition gets Google Inc. and additional 17,000 patents with 7,000 under process/application that were previously owned by Motorola. They may simply have had enough of the patent fights, bickering and decided to take the fight to them in the market they oh so love and rule.
