Patent lawsuits: Google vs Apple, Microsoft and Research in Motion - a legal bonanza

Washington Post ::  For years tech companies did not go after one another in patent lawsuits. But that has changed recently as the battle to dominate the mobile phone space has grown fiercer. Google’s Android operating system has rocketed to the top slot as the most popular in the world, just ahead of Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry.

The battle to beat Android has already turned into a legal bonanza. Apple is suing HTC, Samsung and Motorola, all makers of phones with the Android platform.

Web apps: Aside - will publishers choose the open web over Apple's iTunes store?

Poynter :: A pair of Berlin-based designers has released a prototype of what they call the world’s first HTML5 magazine for tablets.
