Google: "Samsung, you need to get rid of your custom apps, or we're withholding ours."
Samsung: "If you sell Motorola, Google, we'll get rid of our custom Samsung apps."
Google: "Lenovo, you want Motorola?"
Lenovo: "We'll buy Motorola, and let you keep the patents, so long as we can use them as well."
Samsung: "We want use of the Motorola patents as well."
Google: "Then we want your patents too, Samsung and Lenovo, and you have to tone down TouchWiz, Samsung. Deal?"
Samsung and Lenovo: "Deal."
