    Spansion suing Samsung over flash memory patents [Update]

    Smaller, lesser known (to Joe Blow consumer) tech companies have been known to take on the big guys with lawsuits that may or may not hold up in court, but this one seems to hold a bit of water. At least it appears that way based on the Reuters and WSJ reports on the matter. Spansion, an offshoot of AMD, is accusing Samsung and four of its U.S. subsidiaries of infringing on multiple patents and… Read More

    A lawsuit has been filed against Apple over the company’s “defective” iPhone 3G. The plaintiff, from Birmingham, Alabama, argues that the iPhone 3G is a piece of junk, with shoddy data transfer performance, lots of dropped called, an inconsistent 3G connection, and so on.

    Microsoft gets mad at Taiwanese mousemaker, sues

    Usually in a situation like this, Microsoft would just buy the offending company and absorb their essence into its being. Apparently that’s no so easy when the company is all Taiwanese and stuff — they’ve resorted to suing the poor deluded fools, who have apparently resisted multiple approaches to work this thing out peacefully. Since they’re infringing on a couple of… Read More

    Scrabble is suing Scrabulous for using too many letters…and that whole Facebook thing

    Scrabulous, which has been around for a few years, rocketed in popularity when developers made an application for Facebook. And that caught the eye of Scrabble makers, Hasbro, which recently released their own official version. And then sued Scrabulous. Now, I hate Scrabble as much as the next guy, but this is pretty low even for them. In essence, they let Scrabulous work the game back into the… Read More
