This is still considered a developer release, which simply means that it will work on any Windows Phone 7 device without modifications and Windows Phone Mango is the long wished-for major update for Windows Phone 7, aimed at building on the first-generation platform, which is expected to bring Microsoft’s smartphone division up to par with its main competitors, mainly Android and iOS……………..

The company goes on to tout its vision of the future, claiming that it will soon make all things plain at its upcoming BUILD conference and Microsoft has so hyped that event that if it fails to be the perfect conference of all time, even by a hair, it will be deemed a flop………………

Google Purchased 1K Patents From IBM To Save Android From Apple

Google Purchased 1K Patents From IBM To Save Android From Apple

Google has purchased more than 1,000 patents from IBM in an effort to build up its intellectual property portfolio and possibly with an eye to fending off the increasing number of IP lawsuits the search giant faces from competitors such as Microsoft. The new purchase boosts Google’s intellectual property portfolio which currently has just 700 patents and the loss of Nortel patents was a big blow to Google as the search engine was willing to pay any price to beef up its bank of patents. IBM has just enough patents to give Google some ammunition to fend off lawsuits and Google can buy enough patents to put the lawsuit genie back in the bottle………….
