    News for week ending 16/12/2012

    From Andrew ( I @ M)


    An extremely impressive panorama.

    From around the www this week is a link to a rather awe inspiring panorama.
    Zoom in to the full detail level showing the tent city at the bottom to get some sense of scale of the area.

    Apple & Google in Patent Bidding War for Kodak Patents

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-1...k-patents.html


    Apple-Google Team Up for $500 Million-Plus Kodak Patents Bid

    Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Google Inc. have joined forces to offer more than $500 million to buy Eastman Kodak Co. (EKDKQ)’s patents out of bankruptcy, said people familiar with the situation.

    The two companies, competing for dominance of the smartphone market, have partnered after leading two separate groups this summer to buy some of Kodak’s 1,100 imaging patents, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the process is private.

    Unlikely partnerships are typical in patent sales because they allow competitors to neutralize potential infringement litigation. A group including Apple, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Research in Motion Ltd. bought Nortel Networks Corp.’s more than 6,000 patents for $4.5 billion out of bankruptcy last year. Google lost the auction for those patents after making an initial offer of $900 million.

    "Apple and Google learned a lesson from the Nortel’s auction,” said Richard Ehrlickman, former vice president of Intellectual Property at International Business Machines Corp. and president of IP Offerings, a patent brokerage and consulting company in Boca Raton, Florida. “They have decided to come together in this process to reduce the cost of purchasing the Kodak patents, while meeting their business needs.”

    So Microsoft left out in the cold? This potentially could cripple Microsoft's efforts to cacth up in the imaging area of smart devices.
