With the release of Chrome OS (whatever the hell that is) I thought it might be time Google got it's own thread.

Don't be evil? < /Snark...>

I like pirate bay's idea of autonomous, hovering drones to offer private/anonymous internet access.

How are people feeling about Google v. Oracle? Wouldn't it be lovely if they both lost?

I am a less a hater of Oracle, than Google. (Matter of fact, I am sitting here preparing for Oracle work tasks for Sat/Sun)

My feeling is that Google pretty blatantly took Java for Android, just implementing a new byte-code compiler. In a world where people can own the right to "rounded corners," I find it difficult to imagine that this is not some kind of intellectual property theft. Some candid internal e-mails from Google seem to indicate that Google felt this way, too, at least at one point.

Java's more than a programming language, it's also the cross-platform JVM environment, byte-code compiler, and other tools. As such its seems to fall into a different category than C, C++, or more conventional programming languages as far as copywritability goes. Still, I am content to let the court decide; this issues are too abstruse for me.

Yeah, I don't see Google getting out of this one very easily.

Worst-case scenario, this could end up being really good news for the Open webOS project as developers look to something less risky to support.

Or for Windows Phone. Is HP offering indemnity from patent infringement? Until the madness stops, it's going to be hard for a company with money to use a free OS.

What JW said. The testimony I've read seems to have a lot of weaseling and professions of ignorance from Google employees. The way Larry Page threw Rubin under the bus, plus the increasing body-snatching of Android , makes me wonder how long Andy is for this world.


The cyan Lumia is backordered by a week (black is in stock) at Amazon Wireless. None of that instant gratification for me, even if I lived in Indianapolis.

Do only evil?
Again, not surprising considering my take is they are or are in bed with, intelligence agencies.

"Any information pertaining to the relationship between Google and NSA would reveal protected information about NSA's implementation of its information assurance mission," Judge Janice Rogers Brown wrote in the appeals opinion.

Or, you know... a bunch of "peers" that know very little about technology could rule that

No, Google, despite saying in emails and elsewhere that they probably were in violation, in fact were

Not.

Well, they're done with Steve's health. Now they'll obsess about Larry Page's health.

Just saw this news. Throat cancer you think?
I know when I lost my voice it was due to what I called pharyngitis. Doc said I called it correctly. But the problem/source was hyperthyroidism. I considered it due to my diet.
I'm sure he has the funds to get the best treatment available. Hope he does, and does not delay or swing a dead chicken instead.
