We don’t know exactly why, but rich people tend to have attention seeking disorders that push them to do reckless and, well, stupid things. Like buying million-dollar sports cars that they don’t know how to drive, diamond watches they end up not wearing because they’re too heavy or humongous vacation houses they only visit once more »

$899 million euros or $1.4 billion is definitely a huge sum of money and it seems like Microsoft would not just want to lose that amount over an anti-trust ruling that the EU has slapped Microsoft in February 2007. The fine was a result of a case filed against Microsoft for failing to comply with a 2004 ruling.

If you recall, sometime in 2004, the EU slapped Microsoft with a $768 million fine after it failed to comply with an anti-trust ruling that ordered Microsoft to provide rival companies with data that would allow their servers to connect to the Windows platform which was the predominantly used operating systems in majority of the PCs in 2004.

Who here has a couple thousands of clams to spare and for some reason doesn’t dig the Android-based Vertu Ti “luxury” phone?

HTC and Apple are currently in a legal dispute. The International Trade Commission determined that HTC violated two of Apple’s patents. HTC is trying to overturn that preliminary decision based on evidence it claims to possess. Even Google said it will make sure HTC doesn’t lose this dispute. Even with all this going on, HTC is still willing to settle things with Apple amicably.
A short while back HTC angered Desire users when they stated that they could not upgrade the handset to Gingerbread. Of course, many will remember, that decision was quickly overturned and now it seems like HTC is going into overdrive in terms of keeping the Desire users updated on the process. That said, the latest more »
