Oracle Sues Google Over Java Copyrights & Patents

In the tech industry, suing rival companies is not a big deal so its no surprise that Oracle sued Google.

The bone of contention is Google’s US$100 million deal with Sun Microsystems to pay the royalties for using Sun Microsystems’ programming language java for building the, then-new operating system, Android.

The deal has invoked a copyright infringement case against the search giant Google. However, Google has denied the allegations put forth by Oracle.

LulzSec Posts Fake Article Claiming Murdoch’s Death

I guess LulzSec never really resigned, and the whole thing was just a way to engage in a cooldown period and get the FBI off their backs (at least a little bit). Then again, members of LulzSec are known to go rogue and just do their own thing.

Rather than simply taking down a website, they decided to post a fake Times newspaper page that masqueraded as the Sun. Following the attack, the hackers tweeted “We have joy we have fun we will mess up Murdoch’s Sun: http://t.co/JArvwg1 | Hi Rupert! Have fun tomorrow at the Parliament! #AntiSec”

Cover Entire Lakes With Solar Panels

The majority of our planet is made up of water but is there a way to harvest solar energy through water? Although logic may be telling you “no”, the answer is “yes.” SPG Solar has updated its floating solar technology, called Solar Floatovoltaics. The technology is designed to work in an irrigation pond, lake, or other body of water and is priced competitively compared to “regular” ground-mounted solar panel systems. Besides “saving physical space”, users will find minimized algae growth in the water (due to the water being covered, preventing sun overexposure). The technology is designed to last twenty years.

Google Spends $168 Million On New Solar Plant
