Legal Interesting news in the middle of the night: Apple and HTC have announced they've settled all their patent disputes, bringing an end to all running lawsuits between the two companies. The companies signed a ten-year cross-licensing deal. Considering Apple's legal assault on Android hasn't been going particularly well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

HTC used to be a big player, now they aren't.

It doesn't make much sense for Apple to continue to fight them, they don't care for the small fish, they're after the big ones. With this settlement they make some money of HTC, increasing the price of "free" Android and now they can focus more on Samsung and Motorola/Google.
