Emails Related To No-Hire Agreements Between Apple, Google And Others Made Public

Mid and high-level employees, often experts in their respective fields, are a key asset for different tech companies. When the competition is fierce, employees are given fair benefits to retain them. But when companies sign a mutual agreement not to ‘steal’ each other’s employees, that disrupts fair market competition and is, thus, illegal. In the light of certain emails made public recently, Apple, Google, Adobe and many others indulged in such an agreement.

Amazon Buying WebOS

Amazon Buying WebOS

Amazon is close to finish a deal to purchase webOS from HP and Amazon would be a good match for webOS. It would be very simple to dismiss these rumors as pure flights of fancy, since Amazon only just announced their first Android-based tablet product, the Kindle Fire this week and it seems mutually exclusive to have both WebOS and Android development in Amazon’s stable. Both WebOS and Android are based on the Linux kernel and various other open source libraries and the older generations of WebOS also incorporated Java-based technologies………………

HTC Sues Apple For Using Google Patents

HTC Sues Apple For Using Google Patents

HTC suing Apple claiming infringement of four of its nine patents, which it bought from Google just last week and the suit was filed in Delaware, where the Taiwanese company had already sued Apple in an entirely different filing last month. When Google closes the Motorola Mobility deal it will get 17,000 patents and that arsenal is likely to be enough for Google to open a patent candy store, will be handing out patents like Gummy Bears.

HP WebOS Phone Way Too Similar With Palm Pre3?

HP WebOS Phone Way Too Similar With Palm Pre3?

HP entered the smartphone market just like their competitor Dell, only to discover how hard it is to make an impression. While they have been very successful in the laptop, notebook and the desktop PC markets, the smaller niche seems a bit tight for this giant.So far they have not had much success with their efforts in capturing the mobile computing market. It is very hard for a company to change its profile from its strong niches and to start picking up on “fancy” niches. That’s possibly the reason why Apple is that great – they are focused on their products.
