21:58 Judge Throws Apple-Motorola Patent Claims Out of CourtA judge has dismissed claims and counterclaims by Apple and Motorola Mobility over patent infringement, canceling their jury trial in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois just days before it was scheduled to begin.
In a preliminary opinion on the lawsuits, Judge Richard Posner said both sides in the patent dispute over smartphone and tablet technology should have their claims dismissed with prejudice because neither party had established a right to relief. The finding would prevent the two sides from bringing a similar suit in the future.
Posner said, however, that he was delaying entry of final judgment until he had prepared a full opinion.
After disallowing two of Apple's patent claims on May 22, Posner tentatively concluded that Apple's admissible evidence of damages with respect to the remaining patents under dispute did not "create a genuine issue of material fact" that would enable Apple's remaining claims to withstand Motorola Mobility's motion for summary judgment.
"I likewise tentatively conclude that the admissible evidence of damages with respect to the alleged infringement by Apple of Motorola's 898 patent also fails to create a genuine issue of material fact," Posner wrote in the preliminary order issued Thursday.
Google's Long-Term Dilemma
Posner said the imposition of injunctive relief would impose disproportionate costs on the alleged patent infringer as well as distribute disproportionate benefits to the patent holder. Such a decision, he wrote, would also "be contrary to the public interest."
"But all this requires a fuller explanation, which I will endeavor to provide in my opinion," Posner said. "I expect to issue it within a week."
Google cleared all regulatory hurdles for closing its acquisition of Motorola Mobility last month under a $12.5 billion offer tendered last year. With respect to Google's huge investment in Motorola and its ambitions to stop Apple's intellectual-property assertions against...

21:23 Neutrinos sent from CERN to Gran Sasso respect the cosmic speed limit, experiments confirmThe latest results on the time of flight of neutrinos from CERN to the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory have just been presented. Four experiments -- Borexino, ICARUS, LVD and OPERA -- all measure a neutrino time of flight consistent with the speed of light. This is at odds with a measurement that the OPERA collaboration put up for scrutiny last September, indicating that the original OPERA measurement can be attributed to a faulty element of the experiment's fibre optic timing system.
21:19 Facebook Offers 600 Apps in New Store, Free for NowThe mobile market is all about the apps these days, and Facebook, seeking to lengthen the amount of time mobile users spend on the world's biggest social network, is increasing its offerings well beyond Farmville and Mafia Wars.
Beginning today, Facebook will offer mobile apps for Android and iOS as well as a range of social apps and more games.
"The App Center features mobile and web apps, such as Draw Something, Pinterest, and Nike+ GPS, and new apps including Jetpack Joyride, Ghosts of Mistwood, and Ghost Recon Commander," wrote Matt Wyndowe on Facebook's Newsroom page.
"The App Center gives you personalized recommendations, and lets you browse the apps your friends use. It only lists high-quality apps, based on feedback from people who use the app."
While visiting Facebook on a computer, users can send applications they like to their mobile devices. Apps can be sorted by Facebook's recommendations for games and apps, by friends' usage or by newness.
Like everything else on Facebook, the App Center will roll out slowly among U.S. users over the next few weeks, with an initial 600 apps -- all of them gratis. That's nowhere near the ballpark of Apple's nearly half-million offerings in the App Store, Android's more than 400,000 or even the 100,000-plus in the Windows Phone Marketplace. But the idea is to add the ability to get apps without leaving Facebook as well as those that work within the network.
"The goal here is to consistently improve user stickiness to the Facebook platform," said analyst Neil Shah of Strategy Analytics.
"The more time users spend on Facebook, the more the opportunities for the social advertising giant to boost up its in-app ads display."
New Revenue Opportunity
Giving away the initial offerings for free is a classic strategy that paves the way for eventual paid apps, including those that generate...
