Were you too busy basking in the summer rays to catch up on your IT news this weekend? Don’t worry, the ITKnowledgeExchange team has you covered with the top stories from the past few days:
1. Bad news for Kodak as the International Trade Commission (ITC) agreed with a judge’s ruling that neither RIM nor Apple violated its patent on digital image previews. The company, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January, was hoping the patent would be a way to create revenue. Kodak plans to appeal the case.
2. Google’s tablet frenzy continues as the company’s online store has stopped taking orders for the 16GB Nexus tablet. People can request an email on when the 16 GB tablet will be available and Google also said it’s still accepting orders for the 8GB version as well.
3. In other Google news, the company acquired Sparrow, creator of Gmail clients for OS X and iOS, on Friday. Sparrow’s developers will now work with the Google team on developing a ‘bigger version’ of Gmail. If it leads to a more robust mobile Gmail client, it could mean interesting things ahead for the mobile devices in the enterprise.
