    HTC is doing what RIM should be doing right now – buying back shares.

    [url=<]This article on the Apple-HTC patent suit[/url<] snuck in over the weekend, and I didn't find it until this morning. Without commenting on the validity of 'correctness' of the Apple patents, I found the following quote interesting: [quote<]A judge with the U.S. International Trade Commission on Friday ruled that HTC’s Android phones infringe on two of ten Apple patents.... Both patents are said to be hugely important to the core Android OS, and if upheld, the ruling could be incredibly damaging to the rest of Google’s Android partners[/quote<] I wonder if HTC is the rumoured 'other party' allegedly in discussions with [i<]hp[/i<] to license WebOS. It also make me wonder if maybe RIM shouldn't be putting a toe into the licensing waters with the QNX-based BB OS7.

      i think we’ll see more wp7 devices on the market.

        • Peldor
        • 8 years ago

        Unless MS has already licensed the 2 patents in question, there’s no way WP7 is less infringing than Android.

          • dpaus
          • 8 years ago

          That’s not the point – Microsoft, like [i<]hp[/i<] and RIM, has tons of cash and almost as many tons of patents relating to smartphones. HTC has neither. Apple can sue HTC confident that they can't effectively fight back. RIM, Microsoft and [i<]hp[/i<] - not so much. Having said that, Apple is also suing Motorola, who apparently have a few bucks in the bank and likely one or two patents to counter-sue with. But perhaps the latter aren't as obviously winners against Apple as what the other three would have.

            • Peldor
            • 8 years ago

            Apple is also suing Samsung, one of the largest patent holders on the planet. Apple sues essentially everybody that competes with them. Financial status and IP portfolios don’t deter the Apple attack hounds at all.

            • sweatshopking
            • 8 years ago

            MS provides coverage for the manufacturers of WP7 devices. MS isn’t worried about apple, and apple isn’t going to sue ms, they would gain nothing, as they’d likely lose.

            I guess that’s why Apple is keeping that $50 billion in the bank. Lawsuit money.

      stdRiachu’s cherry daiquiri recipe:

      2 parts liquidised cherries + tbsp demerara sugar (sieved)
      2 parts white rum
      1/2 part kirsch
      1 1/2 parts cherry juice and/or apple + blackcurrant juice
      Dash lemon juice

      Never understood using white rum in a strawberry daiquiri. For preference mine is:

      2 parts liquidised strawberries + 2tbsp demerara sugar (sieved)
      3 parts havana club anejo especial
      1 part (clear) apple juice
      Juice of half a lime

      Shake ’em all over ice and serve in a frosted glass.

      Best thing about daiquiri’s is that you can make a boatload of the fruit syrup in advance and then freeze it as daiquiri cubes, then just smoosh it (or if you’re making a big batch, chuck it in the liquidiser) with the rest of the alcohol… that way you don’t need ice cubes either.

      Damn, I want a cocktail now…

      Why not edit to just put one recipe in each post to balance the load? It’s what [i<]I'd[/i<] expect an engineer to do....

        • Goty

        It’s not a previously solved problem, hence and engineer can’t handle it. 😉
