Windows Phone developers who have created third-party Facebook apps are receiving takedown notices from Microsoft, reports Windows Phone Central. The issue is trademark infringement, and Facebook has sent a letter to Microsoft detailing 41 different apps that it believes infringes on one of its various pieces of intellectual property, along with the details on those trademarks. The purpose of the letter is presumably so that Microsoft can issue takedown notices to those developers, which it reportedly has — apparently giving those developers one business day to remove their app from the store.
Although some of the apps are good-faith efforts from third-party developers to create an improved Facebook experience, many more just clutter…
A number of users attempting to upgrade to Mountain Lion, the most current version of Apple’s OS X operating system, have actually wrongly been issued with activation codes for OS X Server components, according to a report from 9to5Mac. The codes came through Apple’s Up-To-Date program, which delivers a free of cost edition of the most recent OS to all individuals who purchased a Macintosh computer system after Mountain Lion’s June 11th announcement. The components that the codes correspond to can only be downloaded by individuals with Mountain Lion currently put in, making them efficiently ineffective.
A minimum of nine posters in the MacRumors Forums have stated getting OS X Server codes up until now. One user speculates that the added elements might be compensation for frustrated consumers who …

A number of users attempting to upgrade to Mountain Lion, the latest version of Apple’s OS X operating system, have mistakenly been issued with activation codes for OS X Server components, according to a report from 9to5Mac. The codes came through Apple’s Up-To-Date program, which offers a free edition of the latest OS to all users who bought a Mac computer after Mountain Lion’s June 11th announcement. The components that the codes correspond to can only be downloaded by users with Mountain Lion already installed, making them effectively useless.
At least nine posters in the MacRumors Forums have reported receiving OS X Server codes so far. One user speculates that the extra components might be compensation for frustrated customers who…
China isn’t in a huge hurry get its own 4G network up and running, instead wanting to ensure the infrastructure is primed and enough compatible handsets are available before it launches. According to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Miao Wei, the country needs plenty more base stations — beyond the existing 220,000 TD-SCDMA bases and closer to 400,000 — before the government starts offering 4G licenses. China Mobile, the country’s largest mobile network, already plans to have over 20,000 TD-LTE base stations in operation by the end of this year, stepping up to 200,000 by the end of next year. This particular type of LTE hasn’t quite set the world on fire just yet — only two operators have launched TD-LTE services and a genuine handset for the network remains absent. Upgrading existing 3G stations is likely to take around three years, according to the official. At least it gives ZTE more time to get the MT73 readied for ICS — or perhaps Android 5.0.

It takes quite a lot to get Apple (or any of the other big timers) to swallow its pride and admit a faulty product, but the random deaths of its Time Capsules seem to have fit that bill. Of course, in classic corporate fashion, we’re not told that there’s a problem at all, but if you bought one of the earliest batches of Time Capsules — between February and June 2008 — and it has since suffered a fatal malfunction, you may now be entitled to a free repair or replacement. This new coverage is also being extended to people who’ve already had to pay to deal with a less than reliable Capsule; they’ll get full refunds of their money, but we doubt their hearts will heal that quickly, and let’s not even talk about the lost data that was supposed to be getting backed up on the thing.
