Google trying to block iPhones, iPads, and Macs from being sold in the US

Google’s Motorola Mobility unit has filed suit against Apple for - you’ll never believe it- patent violations. The company claims that Siri, the flagship feature of the iPhone 4S and probably a zillion other device before too long, infringes on patents owned by Motorola Mobility and, because Google bought that company, ultimately owned by Google.

From Bloomberg:

The complaint at the U.S. International Trade Commission claims infringement of seven Motorola Mobility patents on features including location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/video players, Motorola Mobility said yesterday. The case seeks a ban on U.S. imports of devices including the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers. Apple’s products are made in Asia.

The effort to get that comprehensive ban is featured in the latest issue of Good Luck With That magazine.

This is actually the second patent lawsuit that Google will have going against Apple. The verdict in the first suit is expected to be announced on August 25th.
