I long for the day a judge starts lumping patent infringement lawsuits together. It'd be the end of the current Patent Cold War, with the assured destruction of all the major players. They'd either move away from patenting altogether or die out, either way letting the rest of us free to work on building a better world...

Blacklaw (311963) writes "Sharp has offered a sneak peak at an upcoming eReader line it's dubbed Galapagos — and while specs haven't been discussed, the hardware already looks pretty stylish.
Breaking from the mould of E Ink electrophoretic displays favoured by the majority of eReaders on the market, Sharp's Galapagos line will take the form of a 5.5-inch 'mobile type' and a 10.8-inch 'home type' with full-colour, high-resolution LCD screens."

+ - Google and Eric Schmidt convicted of defamation->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A court in Paris has convicted both Google and Eric Schmidt of defamation due to two search suggestions that were displayed in the Google search engine.

When you type in search terms using Google search it tries to guess what you are searching for and presents a list of suggestions. In this case, when the plaintiff’s name was entered the suggestions included the words “rapist” and “satanist”.

The plaintiff has since been convicted of a crime relating to corruption of a minor, but at the time the search was carried out such a conviction had not been finalized. It was argued that by suggesting such terms before the conviction was made, Google was committing an act of defamation."

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The White House plans to deliver a bill to Congress next year that will require internet based communication services that use encryption to be capable of decrypting messages to comply with federal wiretap orders. The bill will go beyond CALEA to apply to services such as Blackberry email. Even though RIM has stated that it does not currently have an ability to decrypt messages via a master key or back door, the bill may require them to. Regarding this development, James Dempsey of the Center for Democracy and Technology commented on the proposal saying, "They basically want to turn back the clock and make Internet services function the way that the telephone system used to function.""
