Google Buys Motorola
                    Google has spent approximately $12.5 billion for acquiring Motorola mobility holdings, which is the one top of a manufacturer of cellphones and still is a leading maker of cable-TV converter boxes. The technologies and patents that Motorola have will definitely help Google fend off the litigation that competitors have mounted against the company's Android software for mobile phones and tablets. Other observers suspect that Google plans to use Motorola's hardware acumen to help build its own Android-powered devices, in the hope of challenging Apple's market-dominating i Phones and i Pads.
