Google

Submission + - Google interface becoming evil-> 1 1

ansak writes: "Google has adopted a Mystery Meat interface with the disappearance, on the main search page, of the banner giving what to search for. Now it's hidden behind that big Google icon in the top left corner. This downgrade and the chaos being caused in the new look GMail interface is the beginning of the end for Google as it begins to foist things on users like Facebook does. A tablet-friendly appearance should be served up on tablets only."

Novell

Submission + - MSoft-backed Group Delay Patent Purchase->

ansak writes: After wondering what was the good of it all a few weeks ago, the latest over at groklaw points out that the purchase of Novell's 882 patents to a Microsoft-backed consortium is on hold, at least briefly. One commenter suggests an Ubuntu update that makes any user of Ubuntu an automatic member of OIN before the deadline (which will now go beyond the 19th of January, apparently), thus protecting at least those users from patent troubles.
