Legal "As was widely expected, the Federal Trade Commission announced this morning that it has reached a settlement agreement with Google, bringing the commission's antitrust investigations into the search giant to a close. Two different areas of Google's business were being explored: the way it prioritized search results, and the way that Google had sought injunctions against devices that were thought to have infringed upon standards-essential patents from Motorola." Would have loved to see the FRAND system crumble, though. Let the patent mess explode - to change the system, we need disruption, not appeasement.

Thom is the main man and we all suspect him to be a little biased


Sigh.

You do realise that I have been accused of bias in favour of and against every company, project, and piece of software known to man, right? This was old four years ago, and it's even older now.

The only thing I'm biased for is BeOS. Everything else is just shit. Playing the "he's biased!"-card, as a small group of people here tend to do every other day, is the equivalent of throwing your hands in the air and saying "I have no more arguments, so let's just accuse him of bias and get a high-five from the other three guys with whom I agree! Yeah! That'll teach him! Now all we have to do is pretend us four guys comprise the entire readership of OSNews and it'll be just like we are the majority!"
