Legal Nokia has gotten an injunction against HTC in Germany over a patent on a power-saving feature in Qualcomm chips (?!). Nokia's response illustrates why the company started its recent patent offensive: "Nokia is pleased with this decision, which confirms the quality of Nokia's patent portfolio." If nobody buys your phones and your business is failing spectacularly, you have to promote something else of value to paint yourself as an interesting acquisition target. Patents it is, then. If you can't compete, litigate. Update: HTC's statement is pretty damning.

I'd love an iPad Mini. Save for the crappy low-res display (really, it surprised me just how bad it is), it'd be a great addition to my collection. Not something I'd pay for, though.

The iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini first generation were/are all nice, but the 2nd generation was much nicer.

I'm waiting for the 2nd gen iPad Mini for my son so I can get my iPad back.
