Fair enough. Now imagine both events reversed: first Google makes the announcement for FFC, later Apple claims to have invented something similar, but instead of FFC it is called "WonderWave". Would anything change? Remember Firewire, Bonjour, AirPort and so many others.
I think the question hinges on how much Google values open development (very little) versus helping the competition (complete disaster). Remember the Honeycomb fiasco, which would have not been possible with an open development model.
