QNX Well, I have to admit I didn't see this one coming. Not too long ago, QNX Software Systems was acquired by Harman International (Harman/Kardon and JBL), and now, six years later, the embedded software specialist has been bought by BlackBerry maker Research In Motion. Interesting acquisition.

"If Apple or Nokia ever get trigger-happy towards RIM, I'm sure QNX can pull a sizeable number of patents out of its hat Nokia and/or Apple (potentially) infringe upon." Nokia and RIM has had license agreement for many years now, and it was last renew 2008. But maybe their new IP can bring down royalty expenses.
