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.

This is probably the worst thing that could happen to innovation. Without the patent system exploding, we will never see any usable patent reform, meaning any newcomer will be literally crushed when they try to enter the market. There is still a patent minefield out there.

This ONLY benefits the big fish, making the entry-barrier even higher.
