Twitter offers researchers data grants to study your 140-character LOLs

There’s a veritable wealth of data to be gleaned from the world’s tweets, but apparently it’s not so easy for researchers to get a hold of. To that end, Twitter has announced that it will start granting certain research institutions no-cost access to…

Federal Judge blocks Xbox ban, grants motion to dismiss Motorola request for injunctive relief

Federal Judge blocks Xbox ban, grants motion to dismiss Motorola injunction

Motorola’s hopes of implementing a German-won sales injunction against the Xbox 360, Windows 7 and various other items have yet once more been dashed– a Federal judge has taken Microsoft’s side. Judge James L. Robart granted a movement proclaiming that Motorola Flexibility isn’t really entitled to injunctive relief, successfully blocking bans based on the firm’s H. 264 streaming and (formerly dropped) WiFi patent complaints. The court had actually been sitting on the movement for almost a year, but for Microsoft, the last word is worth the delay: Motorola “has not shown it has suffered an irreversible injury or that treatments readily available at law are insufficient to recompense for its injury,” the court said, keeping in mind that Microsoft “will certainly pay royalties under any sort of license agreement from the time of violation within the statute of constraints.” Generally, Motorola will certainly make back all the scratch it’s whining it lost anyhow, so no harm, no foul. Simply a big legal headache.Com mentsVia: FOSS Patents,

NASA grants $ 100,000 grant for sideways supersonic airplane principle, sonic boom not included

NASA awards $  100,000 grant for sideways supersonic plane concept, sonic boom not included

NASA isn’t just considering extra-terrestrial exploration, but in pushing the limits of atmospheric flight too, which is why it’s just awarded $ 100,000 in funding for the supersonic airplane idea revealed above. As you can see, the symmetrical airplane is essentially all wing, which’s because it has two different configurations based on how fast you prefer to go. For typical, subsonic flight, an airplane needs to have a respectable wingspan to get off the ground and sustain flight at reduced speeds. But, when you wish to go supersonic, large wings come to be a bit of a drag, which is where the concept’s bi-functional design can be found in. The airplane begins its journey in the long-winged setup, however spins 90 degrees among the clouds to use its stubby wings for efficient faster-than-sound flight and “practically absolutely no sonic boom.” Gecheng Zha from the University of Miami has been touting his principle for rather some time, however now he’s got the cash to improve the design, run simulations and do some wind tunnel screening, with the capacity for even more funding in the future. However, the idea is, at greatest, decades from coming to be a fact, however we’re sold on the ninja star-like design. Guile, nonetheless, is not impressed.

German court grants Motorola injunction against Windows 7 and Xbox 360

ImageMicrosoft and Motorola continue to duke it out in courts across the world, and it looks like the Google-owned manufacturer has just chalked up a victory in Europe. Based on a pair of patents involved the H.264 video codec, the Mannheim regional court ruled on four lawsuits between the two companies, granting an injunction against the continued distribution of Windows 7, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and the Xbox 360 in Germany. Microsoft has already upped sticks from the country to reduce the effect of its current legal predicament. FOSS Patents reports that Motorola won’t be able to immediately enforce the ruling. The company is still being investigated by the EU over possible antitrust violations related to licensing its patents — something that could further complicate today’s ruling.

Sprint grants LightSquared six-week extension for FCC approval

As Carl Icahn prepares to take the wheel, buttressed by a cushion of distressed LightSquared debt, Sprint appears close to ending its ill-fated dance with the upstart LTE provider. After granting the Falcone-backed company a 30-day extension earlier this January, the Hesse-led co is taking one last stab at making that 15-year resource sharing agreement work, giving the beleaguered network an additional six weeks to garner regulatory approval for its controversial spectrum. As it stands, the fate of LS’ wholesale 4G operation lies within the FCC’s hands and with no hard date for a final ruling in sight, it’s easy to read this last lifeline as the end.

German court grants injunction against Apple for infringement of Motorola patents

Motorola just confirmed that earlier today, the Mannheim District Court in Germany granted an injunction against Apple for patent infringement. In addition to the confirmation, Motorola also issued the following, rather unrevealing statement:

“As media and mobility continue to converge, Motorola Mobility’s patented technologies are increasingly important for innovation within the wireless and communications industries, for which Motorola Mobility has developed an industry leading intellectual property portfolio. We will continue to assert ourselves in the protection of these assets, while also ensuring that our technologies are widely available to end-users. We hope that we are able to resolve this matter, so we can focus on creating great innovations that benefit the industry.”
