I might agree if Google actually stole technology. But if they're merely making a similar product? Whoop-de-friggin'-do! Edison didn't have exclusive rights to making records or record players. There are many manufacturers of very, very similar dishwashers, clothes washers and dryers, refrigerators, cordless phones, televisions, stereos. . . I understand wanting to trounce the competition. But you don't get the eternal right to no competition. I'm starting to wonder if the upcoming Steve Jobs biography is going to sully his image more than enhancing it.
