Microsoft Pays $290M For Patent Infringement

The U.S. Supreme court upheld a 2009 verdict that had ordered Microsoft to pay $290 million in fines because the computer giant infringed on a patent that was owned by Toronto-based company i4i. The U.S. Supreme court found that Microsoft stole the concept of an i4i-owned patent that allowed users to manipulate the architecture and content of a document.

Microsoft altered its application in 2010 when it filed for an appeal. After the ruling, Microsoft argued that the courts should not require such a high burden of proof for patent violations because it made it hard for the larger companies to defend themselves in such cases.

HP Introduces 3 Hot New Laptops

It looks like HP is rolling out new products left and right. After just announcing the company’s ultrathin display and new flexible data plan, it seems like HP has just a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Other specifications are rather impressive but not state-of-the-art.

While we’ve seen many of the true high tech laptops carry solid-state drives, this laptop is still on a 7200RPM hard disk drive. It does however, come with 750GB of internal storage which should be more than enough to store all your Blu-ray movies and HD videos.

Acer Rolls Out 24″ Internet LCD Monitor

Acer has come forth with a new product called the DX241H web surf station. What does it do? It’s a 24-inch LCD monitor that comes with internet access. The suggested retail is 300 pounds, just about $500 USD. The price suggests that we are dealing with a netbook tech spec ordeal, enclosed within a 24-inch monitor. The machine runs on the Freescale i.MX51 system, an ARM Cortex A8 architecture and runs at 800MHz. No clue yet as to how much memory it has, but I think 1GB is a safe guess.
