Google Picks Up IBM Patents, Including 'computer phone' [techradar.com]
We're sure the term 'computer phone' is just about to catch on, so congratulations to Google which has acquired the patent for just that from IBM.

The newly acquired patent gives Google ownership of "a computer integrated cordless phone" and will probably come in handy in the company's legal battles with the likes of Apple and Microsoft that are set to continue this year.

During the last week of 2011, Google acquired 'computer phone' and another 187 granted patents plus 29 pending patents from IBM no word on how much cash the deal set Google back.
