That Apple/Motorola patent case that, a few weeks back, seemed to be on the ropes with presiding judge Richard Posner stating a "dysfunctional patent system" as cause for dismissing the case, actually ended up going forward in court. Judge Posner, if you recall, had doubts that it would but ultimately decided otherwise and the case was seen.
Skip forward to last Friday when, after having heard both sides of the case, Judge Posner issued his final decision: Both parties' cases where dismissed WITH PREJUDICE, meaning neither side can refile on these issues. Posner used the opportunity to reiterate that "patents in the field of information technology often have little if any value except defensively" and pointed out that injunction against Motorola would have likely resulted in costs that far outweighed any potential loss or gain to either party.
This along with other cases including Oracles loss to Google regarding Java code in Android makes things feel, if ever so slightly, that maybe there is a changing tide in the world of software patents as they relate to Android.

Hello, I was trying set up Skype on my Asus TF101, apparently it won’t work on that tablet.

Can you recommend another video chat or talk program that will work on eee pad ? I would like to hook up by video and talk to my daughter in Orlando, I am a couple hundred miles away in north Florida.

Thanks Much,

Ivey Harris


Some forums say that Skype should work with your tablet for video (enable video calls in settings, set to High Quality, then after the call connects tap the screen and tap the video camera with a slash through it, then select the Front camera.) But some also say that video quality is really poor.

Gtalk can do video.

ooVoo is supposedly a good alternative.
