Submission + - Fake google certificate was the result of a hack. (vasco.com)

AVee writes: "The rough google.com certificate issued by Diginotar was actually the result of a breach of their systems. According to a press release from Vasco, their parent company, the breach happened on July 19. Apparently they feel like publishing this a the time. The Diginotar website seems to have been breached since 2009 as well."

Submission + - Amazon want to patent nodding to pay. (techflash.com)

Submission + - Nokia sues Apple for patent infringment in iPhone (engadget.com)

AVee writes: "Engadget (amonst many others) report that Nokia is sueing Apple because the iPhone infringes on 10 Nokia patents related to GSM, UTMS and WiFi. The press release doesn't contain much detail, it does state that Apple didn't agree "appropriate terms for Nokia's intellectual property", which sounds like there have been negotiations about those patents."
