Now that the market has had a day to digest Google’s ambitious $12.5 billion bid for Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc., what do they think?

Ewww. At least analysts are still behind the stock…oh.

Screw those S&P bastards anyway. They downgraded our country’s debt rating for the first time in history. WHY DO THEY HATE AMERICA?!

Another person you don’t hear from on the acquisition: Eric Schmidt. I wonder how he feels about the kids busting into the liquor cabinet 10 minutes after he left. He should have marked the bottles.

If you’ve watched any Discovery Channel at all, you’re familiar with the “Serengeti takedown” at the end of a chase. The large cat has its jaws locked around the throat of the antelope as it thrashes wildly before the darkness closes in. HTC should be able to identify strongly with that image.

It’s been a pretty bad week for the Taiwanese company. They’re fresh from the news that their BFFs at Google just played them – and the rest of the suckers locked into Android as their shartphones OS – by purchasing Motorola for $12.5 billion. Apple has a shitload of patents hung on them and two of them have already been upheld by the ITC.  But HTC is not done thrashing, as a thorough search of their sock drawers has yielded yet more patents to throw at Apple. If you want to burn your eyes out through the combined effects of patent language and appaling diction, the USPTO links at MacRumors will certainly accommodate you.

Thrash all you want, HTC. It’s not going to change the ending. It never does.
