Microsoft says Android infringes on its patents, licenses HTC

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2735 days, 4 hours, 24 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)

Firefox now available for Android 2.0 and above, still at pre-alpha stage

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2735 days, 4 hours, 26 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 8:51:24 AM GMT
Fennec, Mozilla's codeword for mobile Firefox builds, has just made its pre-alpha debut on Android. The tastefully named Vladimir Vukićević informs us that it's pretty much a debug release, with unoptimized memory utilization and some quirks rebooting the app when it's started and when add-ons are installed, but it is at a stage where the devs felt they could get useful feedback from a broader user base. It's not yet available on the Android Market, so you'll be needing to download it from the link below... (more)

Court rules not to dismiss Datel antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2736 days, 5 hours, 3 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)

Forza Motorsport 3 $10 off on Amazon

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2736 days, 5 hours, 4 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 8:12:48 AM GMT
A quick note for any driving simulation fans that have yet to dive into Forza Motorsport 3: Amazon is currently offering Turn 10's latest opus as a Gold Box deal. The game is selling new for $49.99, making it $10 cheaper than the retail price. Of course, if you've waited this long without picking up a new copy, you could probably pick up a used copy for less. Then again, there's no telling whose grubby little fingers have been groping those, so new certainly has its advantages. (more)

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 8:07:32 AM GMT
THQ announced earlier this year that it planned to release a UFC Undisputed 2010 demo a few months prior to the game's May 25 launch.

Drew Brees discusses 'Madden Curse,' fan voting for Madden NFL 11 cover

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 8:06:46 AM GMT
Even people who avoid sports like the plague know that there is a certain "curse" associated with being on the cover of a Madden game. This year's cover boy, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, ain't sweatin' it though -- "it is what it is, but I look at it as a challenge," he told ESPN. Heck of a "challenge," Mr. Brees. The majority of your predecessors didn't fare so well. (more)

Bodycount to bring back the 'feel' of Black

Although it seems unlikely we'll ever get a true sequel to last generation's FPS Black, Codemasters' Bodycount could certainly been as a spiritual successor. Project lead on both games, Stuart Black, has stated that Bodycount will evoke the "feeling" of Black, a feeling that other FPS games just haven't managed to emulate. (more)

Review: Super Street Fighter IV

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 7:49:06 AM GMT
There's no denying that the release of Street Fighter IV revitalized the fighting scene. While dedicated fighter fans were still playing their favorite (and mostly older) games, the fighting genre really wasn't getting much attention from the overall gaming public. Since Street Fighter IV, there's been a huge uptick in both the number of companies making fighting games, and the number of gamers interested in fighters. (more)
