Submission + - Judge orders Microsoft to stop selling Word 1

fractalVisionz writes: A judge on Tuesday ordered Microsoft to stop selling Word, one of its premier products, in its current form due to patent infringement.

Judge Leonard Davis of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a permanent injunction that "prohibits Microsoft from selling or importing to the United States any Microsoft Word products that have the capability of opening .XML, .DOCX or DOCM files (XML files) containing custom XML," according to a statement released by attorneys for the plantiff, i4i.

Submission + - Buy the Milky Way Galaxy 1

fractalVisionz writes: In an attempt to replicate Lunar Embassy, an anonymous group called the Milky Way Team claims to have gained ownership rights to the Milky Way. With this possession, they are now auctioning it off on eBay. From the FAQ, 40% of all proceeds will go to charity, with possibly more if the price is right.

Currently there are 13 bids at a price of $224.72. Be the second to own the Milky Way today.
