Apple is continuing to fight HTC over Android and have pulled an ace out of their sleeve - Andy Rubin, a.k.a. the man behind Android, worked at Apple when the company was working on a key patent. A patent that Android might be infringing on. The patent in question was filed in the distant 1994 (no iPod, iPhone, iOS or anything at the time) but seems directly related to processing data in real time. Andy Rubin was a low-level engineer working on the patent for Apple at the time. Android may be infringing on this patent and working around it would require changes that go very deep - maybe as deep as the kernel itself. For now, Apple is only bringing this up to point out that HTC weren’t completely truthful in their statements (they said Rubin's career started in General Magic). Here's the quote from Apple's statement: Couple this with the Oracle's lawsuit against Google/Android (which many insiders believe that Google is almost certain to loose heavily and could result in major changes to OS being forced upon them) ....... I guess Android's troubles probably are just starting, and despite the acquisition of Motorola Google may not be out of woods any time soon.
