That sounds interesting. This is perhaps the 2nd time I hear a good omen for Microsoft and its upcoming Windows 8 OS for mobile phones.
Didn’t thought before that this patent’s fight between Apple and Samsung would benefit a 3rd and this being Microsoft.
Your arguments seem to be accurate. Now US operators will want not to buy the Android phones which might infringe Apple’s patents. But, I think the lawsuit involved the physical design also right? So it’s not only Android based phones perhaps but any phone that look very iphone-ish.
But after all this… is Microsoft free of sin? Is the Windows 8 OS free of patent infringement over the iPhone’s GUI?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
