Give Them A Couple Of Handbags
And slug it out a 10 paces.
Paris to choose the styles.
We didn't really expect Larry Page to take two full days out of the Googleplex to sit down and talk about patent infringements with the software company Oracle – he's got maths to do, nerds to manage and Google+ updates to write. But Google could have come up with someone a bit senior to meet the mediation team from the enraged …
Seems to me that Google is either not taking this seriously, or that they don't want Larry Page to be in a conference room where anything he says can and will be used by Oracle's lawyers against Google.
Score one point for Oracle. Not because they did something right, but that they took the offer of mediation seriously and Google fscked it up again.
Seems that the two sides have difference views of what they need to mediate about.
If you want to discuss the technicalities putting up the SVP in charge of the Android project seems the right choice.
If you want to view it as a business fight, then it doesn't.
Surprise Surprise, the two don't see eye to eye.
Lock the two Larrys in a room and don't let them out till they've kissed and made up.
Perhaps someone could do the world a big favour and throw away the key while they weren't looking.
and nothing about Google or Oracle or Patents. What was the main idea behind Java, platform independence... And to me that would make Oracle bad for trying to tie Java down, and Google should be allowed to walk. As much as I am not a big fan of Google, they should be allowed to walk away with Java in their pocket, as should anyone or anything.
Java is a great tech, set it free Oracle, and let it fly.
Looks like Larry (E) is getting his panties in a wad because Larry (P) sent an underling to mediate with. Since when does Ellison get to pick who the other party sends to meetings? Does he think this is an America's Cup match where the Yacht club runs things? Piss off.
