Corporate technologies acquisitions can go bad, it's a fact. AT&T bought NCR to try and gain a foothold in the PC market and the deal ended up as rotten as a box of stale eggs. The Skype and eBay deal went pretty sour from the start and HP's purchase of Compaq was not without its woes. Oracle...

Mobile-focused software application developers might want to take more than a passing glance at what's going on in Spain just now. Arguably not always known as the technology epicenter of Europe, the northeast region of Catalonia is Spain's high-tech hub, apparently? OK so there's Mobile World...
