Google to buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion
What a better way for the NSA to monitor everything on a cell phone being Motorola is a manufacture of phones.

Google Inc said it will buy phone hardware maker Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc for $12.5 billion in cash to bolster the adoption of its Android mobile software.

Yea even though it is a money maker for the share holders people also need to realize what google now has control over the phone you are using.

They did it to proctect Android. MM was in the process of suing everybody for patent infringements. As well it will hold off Apple's and Microsoft's lawyers. This will help them, and OEMs like Samsung and HTC.

This would be a bad deal for Google.
Wait 3 years, and buy Moto for 1 billion, IF THAT!

Motorola makes the shittiest hand held phones.

Google does not need this kind of company to track people.

Motorola Mobility and Motorola (Solutions) are two different companies.

Re: Google to buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion
I agree with the competition but with google having the reputation it has it would make one think to what extent will google go to track all cellphone use. They will use the excuse of (it will be a better way for us to determine what customers are wanting in services) all along tracking every textmessage, web searches and phone calls. even though they are supposed to have probal cause to tap info. This is just my opinion based on the past history of google.
