    Hmm. Good point. W10 and Google business model seem very similar. With Ads, Spyware, etc.

    Heh. That'd be the last thing they'd want to do.

    Customer info is valuable, especially to Google. That's why it's kept under lock and key, and not given out to anyone.

    I think companies are just tired of wasting money on trials that often depend on the whim of lay juries, and/or the legal placement of a comma in a patent registered years ago.

    Another depute "agreeing" not to go after one another. "lets agree to disagree"

    I think its more about the cost and removing a distraction for both of them. I think they both just grew tired of the fight and agreed to just walk away.
