+ - Blackberry defeats Typo in court, Typo to discountinue sales of keyboard.

Submitted by juniorkindergarten
juniorkindergarten writes: Blackberry and Typo have reached a final settlement that effectively ends Typo selling its iphone keyboard accessory.
Blackberry took Typo to court for twice for patent infringement over the copying of Blackberry's keyboard design. Blackberry and Typo first battled it out in court, with Typo losing for copying the Blackberry Q10 keyboard design. Typo redesigned its keyboard and again Blackberry sued them for patent infringement.
The final results are that Typo cannot sell keyboards for screens less than 7.9", but can still sell keyboards for the ipad and ipad air. Exact terms were not disclosed

A series of studies show that the drugs are effective against some of the most deadly tumours, including those of the lung, bowel, liver and head.

Patients who could expect to live for just a matter of months under existing treatments, could see their tumours completely destroyed and go on to enjoy a normal lifespan under the new treatment.

+ - Goatse billboard hack horrifies drivers in Atlanta->

Submitted by Yossarian45793
Yossarian45793 writes: In a wealthy suburb of Atlanta, hackers managed to get a video billboard to display the goatse image for several hours. Many slashdotters are familiar with that horror, and now a number of Atlanta residents are too. I'm surprised that such an obvious prank took this long to happen, and I wonder how many more times it will given the proliferation of video screens in public places.
