Google Tirade Against Apple reaching absurd levels

The commission had ruled that Apple had indeed infringed one of those patents, and reserved its final decision until August 24. If the commission rules in favour of Motorola, the iPhone could face an import ban as early as next week.

Google's Motorola Mobility subsidiary is trying to have the International Trade Commission ban Apple from importing iPhones, iPads, and other computers into the U.S., Bloomberg reports.
The smartphone manufacturer filed a complaint with the ITC over claims that Apple infringed on its patents. It's the second complaint Motorola has filed.
Motorola, even before it was owned by Google, was fighting with Apple over claims that its hardware infringed on Motorola's patents.A decision on Motorola's first complaint is expected to come next Friday, August 24.

As per a report in Bloomberg, Motorola Mobility claims Apple's products infringe seven of its patents on features including location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/ video players.
Motorola has filed a complaint at the United States International Trade Commission seeking a ban on US imports of devices including the iPhone, iPad and Apple computers. Since Apple products are made in China, US sales are technically imports from China. 
Even if Motorola won an import ban next week, it would not affect the iPhone 4S and the new iPad 4G, nor the widely-anticipated iPhone 5".(source : Florian Mueller)
