#Patentfun is a weekly article written up to summarize the lawsuits surrounding the Android OS.
Okay, had almost decided to not post this week, but even with a busy weekend and all, I decided against it. Now, this is a bit rushed out as I said it was a fully packed weekend and I’m just getting around to writing this up now (830pm Sunday). So excuse the brevity.
I’m actually trying to flash my phone while I’m writing this, and it’s giving me some grief… grrgh. (btw – thanks Renaud and Sylvain for the help)
Previously I had talked about reporting less of the ‘progress’ and more about the outcomes. So here’s hoping it reduces much of the reporting work.
Now this is just sad. I loved Kodak. When I first started a long way back with cameras I was using Kodak film (until I switched to ilford…). It was sad watching them just make less and less options of paper and film etc… and I think this is the final ring around the toilet for the company. I wish them well, however, lashing out at those that are prospering because you are not.
Apparently this is an extension (addition) of the suit against Apple… but why bring it now … if they were infringing, you would have done it from the start. I don’t see what’s different with HTC now…
Okay, so thanks for reading, and I hope a lot of this monkey-muck gets cleaned up… it’s just crazy. AndroidPolice the other day asked “if Android was to disappear, what OS would you use”. I wont’ get into MY answer, but the thought of ‘what if’ is pretty scary to me. I’ve already gone through a dead OS with Palm… dang, I loved those things. So here’s hoping that Google’s got something up their sleeves to help their manufacturing partners out with!
Back to the bloody phone… (kernel I uploaded doesn’t seem to like booting up… tsk tsk — I can get into recovery, but I didn’t put a zip file in the phone to flash, and I can’t access the external SD — might have to go try ODIN’s method).
