Google has finally gotten permission from everyone to buy Motorola. Even China signed off on the deal. Motorola is pretty much theirs now. No one knows what this means, if it’ll change Motorola in any way, or if it was just for Moto’s big patent library, but any way you look at it, it’s probably a good thing. But there will have to be sacrifices.
We are saddened to report that there will be layoffs because of the purchase, with as many as 30% of employees being let go. It’s definitely unfortunate, and I personally cringe when hearing about layoffs, but I guess it was inevitable.
