Legal "App developers are withdrawing their products for sale from the US versions of Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market for fear of being sued by companies which own software patents - just as a Mumbai-based company has made a wide-ranging claim against Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo and a number of other companies over Twitter-style feeds, for which it claims it has applied for a patent."

Even I will admit the lack of news other than patent related has been lacking lately. I appreciate the cause whole heartedly, but if we're going to only discuss patents now maybe a sister site is in order.

Buy the domain (or something like it). I will visit every day. Maybe you could attract a patent lawyer to go through the legal docs for us.

I really do agree with the attention all of this deserves, but sometimes I just want techie news that is surrounded by a governments broken system.
