You know damn well Google made a low ball offer--say $2-3 billion--to IDCC and IDCC turned around and put themselves up for sale to the highest bidder. Google believes in the open source fairy and hates paying up for innovation. If they let Apple walk away with this prize, they will be very sorry because in five years they will be out of the smart phone business. They hate intellectual property unless it's their own. Remember how they tried to scan every book in the universe until they ran up against a little thing called copyright law. To them patents are like content, everything is suppose to be free for them to package and deliver at a profit, of course.
