Thursday, April 29, 2010 5:32:27 AM GMT
In what should not come as much of a surprise, Microsoft has reaffirmed its belief that Natal will be useful in everyday, tech-oriented life, not just for playing videogames. Speaking to executives in Columbia this week (talk about an all-time alibi), CEO Steve Ballmer praised the device for its abilities. "The technology actually is very general purpose, and we'll see come into the rest of our lives pretty soon," Ballmer said, after mentioning how Natal was, in his mind, "the most exciting product" the ...

Microsoft says Android infringes on its patents, licenses HTC

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2585 days, 10 hours, 2 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 8:52:56 AM GMT
The lawyers up in Redmond seem to have been woken from their slumber with the sudden realization that -- oh look! -- Google's Android OS infringes on Microsoft's boatload of software patents. How specifically it does so is not identified, but Microsoft believes that elements from both the user interface and the underlying operating system are in violation of its rights. This is very much in keeping with the Windows maker's crusade to assert patent claims over Linux, which in the past has garnished it wit... (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2586 days, 10 hours, 41 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 8:13:50 AM GMT
Datel's antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft will continue, now that a US District Court has rejected Microsoft's motion to dismiss the case. In all, five of Datel's six allegations against the Xbox 360 maker will be weighed. The court did dismiss Datel's claim that Microsoft would be blocking the company from competing in the console market, since Datel does not actually manufacture game consoles. (Find Datel's full announcement of the court's rejection posted after the break.) (more)
