Google Buys Motorola Mobility: It's All about the Patents

Don't spend too much time trying to figure out how a cloud software giant like Google is going to use a hardware manufacturer. The purchase ain't about the hardware. It's all about the patents, and Google's need to undo the screwup it made in the recent auction of wireless patents.

I told friends at the time that Google would find someway to mitigate the damage, and it's nice when events bear me out.
