Skyhook: Google bad mouthed us to Apple

In its court filings, Skyhook claims that “Having apparently disparaged Skyhook’s technology to Apple, Google proceeded to then launch the same Wi-Fi based location technology by infringing Skyhook’s patents.

That can’t be true—that would be evil and Google’s not evil. Right?

    Entirely unpossible. Completely ridonculous.

    I look forward to them getting the documents for proof beyond “[Skyhook] believes”. This should be something Google opens its doors and let’s the transparency flow.

      I agree that there needs to be proof beyond WAH WAH WAH, they said mean things about us WAH WAH WAH but Google and transparency? That’s not going to happen.

        True, probably not but for the specific instance of data I hope they do open up. I hate hearing companies do stuff like this and if they did, own up. If they didn’t, they should clear their name.

    Stories like this make it clear just how hypocritical Larry Page’s “Everyone should have a slice of the pie, we believe in unicorns, ranbows, and ice-cream for everyone” bullshit speech was.
