Microsoft has posted an email in which it asked Google to team up to bid for Nortel's patent portfolio making the company and its public accusations look foolish.

Brad –
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - I came down with a 24-hour bug on the way back from San Antonio.

I hope the rest of your travels go well, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Shouldn't that be "Nortel" not "Novell" in Brad's tweet?

Actually, the groups, including Apple & MS, bid on both Novell & Nortel patents. https://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=16328
