Eric Schmidt: 'it's extremely curious' that Apple hasn't yet sued Google

Google's roving uncle, Eric Schmidt, has sat down with the Wall Street Journal to talk about life and times at Mountain View. When asked about the ongoing saga between Apple and Android manufacturers, Schmidt said "it's extremely curious that Apple has chosen to sue Google's partners and not Google itself." However, rather than an invitation to a back-alley knife-fight, it seems the company chairman is hoping for a peaceful solution to the pair's enmity. He also talks about the real loser in this global patent conflict -- anyone looking to set up their own device company to follow in the footsteps of Android's daddy, Andy Rubin.
