Factor in Lenovo’s purchase against roughly $2bn of Motorola losses during Google’s ownership and Google has still only paid $3bn for what it retained: $5.5bn worth of Motorola patents and the company’s cutting edge research lab.

Google aren't fools you know.

I think if you reread my original post you will see I already addressed this point. We agree. My discussion was with regards to the action of the CEO. Your figures further support my point. Thank you.
