Eric Schmidt


Google has held a pretty consistent and reasonable position on patents pointing out the obvious flaws the current system has.

Google Chairman, Eric Schmidt, will also meet with Samsung executives. He said that "Samsung is one of our most important customers and there is much to discuss". The Korean company is Android's biggest vendor and when it comes to patent, it has been the one to suffer most from the current system, as Apple might seek more than $1 billion in damages over patent infringement from Samsung.



'Literally patent wars prevent choice, prevent innovation and I think that is very bad,' Schmidt said. 'We are obviously working through that and trying to make sure we stay on the right side of these issues. So ultimately Google stands for innovation as opposed to patent wars.'
'I think one of the worst things that happened in the last few years has been the belief that somehow there are so many patents in the mobile phone world, an estimated 200,000 patent that are overlapping and complicated and so forth, that one vendor can stop the sale of another vendor's phones or devices,' he also stressed.





Google Maps


Google has updated their maps platform to include higher-detailed satellite imagery, as well as a new 45° view mode. It has covered 51 cities initially, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, and the State Capitol building in Austin, Texas.



While 45° view is not a novelty for online maps, it seems that Google is trying to get in a few punches against the competition, in light of Apple's recent maps debacle.
