If Apple Wins Against Samsung: RIM becomes a Steal

August 22, 2012

Here is an interesting  point to make. The battle with Apple is over the look and feel of android on Samsung. As I stated earlier Apple has a home-field advantage and it seems likely that the jury is going to rule in Apple's favor.

The Gates - way to the Stars with Kymeta

August 21, 2012

According to the NY Times Intellectual Ventures has a new spin off that Bill Gates has participated in called Kymeta.

The 12M seems to be headed toward getting production of its mTenna product lines which maybe coming at a time when the market needs for M2M will match will to the use of KA band Satellite solutions.

As we have reported ATT has announced that by 2017 it will stop supporting 2G deployments and the personal navigation device business is in need of an answer.  4G is probably going to have a lot of issues with battery and specific spectrum radios requirements.

August 20, 2012

Sirius is about to be under the control of Liberty Media according to the NY Times.

While Sirius had been against the acquistion it seems clear now that the  air has been cleared for the air to be used ;<).

What's interesting is the possibilities of this addition.  As you may recall Netflix owes alot of its success to the reading of the licensing from Starz (which also is a Liberty Media company).
