Yet another Google lawsuit was filed against their largest competitor in the mobile industry, Apple. In its second lawsuit, Motorola Mobility, the mobile division of Google, claims that Apple violates seven patents that were originally designed by Motorola engineers, including popular feature Siri, which can be found in the not so humorously named voice recognition technology in phones using the Android OS.
The potential outcome of this lawsuit could stop the import of popular Apple products, including the iPad, iPhone, and the famously thin Mac computer line. The battle began back in 2010, but only recently was this second lawsuit announced increasing on the already heavy rift between the two major brands.
While Apple is staying mum on the new patent lawsuit, Motorola Mobility spokesmen have e-mailed that they would like to work out a deal, but Apple is unwilling to work with them. This is the clear reason for the second round of lawsuits being sent in Apple's direction.
The decision on the Google lawsuit, which will decide whether Apple products can continue to be imported or not, will be announced on August 24. Until then, Apple fans will continue to fall in love with their friend Siri and use the light yet advanced technology provided to the nearly cult-like following of consumers they have backing them.
