Apple, Google, Megaupload
Hope you had a great weekend! While you were (hopefully) basking in some summer sun, we were keeping an eye on the IT world for you. Here are the top three stories from this past weekend:
1. Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, who’s wanted for extradition to the United States after being arrested for computer piracy, reactivated his Twitter account last week to announce his new project: Megabox.
2. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced last week a new initiative that will expand its technology sector. Bloomberg created a partnership with the NYC Economic Development and the Department of Information Technology to further develop broadband access throughout the city.
3. Apple received a critical blow in its case against Google as a federal judge dismissed its patent case due to neither side could prove any damages against either company.
