Since I moved down to NoVA over 2 years ago, I've seen a hurricane larger than Floyd and an earthquake and just missed a massive snow storm. The trees decided to have a massive orgy leading to one of the worse allergy seasons ever and now we've got a pretty bad flu season. Nothing surprises me anymore.

+ - Oracle Sues Google for Infringing Java Patents->

Submitted by

Bruce Perens writes "Oracle has brought a lawsuit against Google claiming that Google has infringed patents on the Java Language, presumably in Android. We don't have the text of the lawsuit yet.
