Google was good enough to release the stock Android keyboard in Google Play a few months back, and now it's getting a nice update to version 1.1. It's not going to rock your world, but it might take care of some annoyances.

Let's say some guy down the street opens a competing phone store, and his logo is an almost sort of similar shade of magenta, but not really the same. And his logo otherwise doesn't look like yours, really at all. Do you: A.) take this as a coincidence and forget about it, B.) as a compliment that you have good taste, or C.) sue the ever-loving crap out of that guy because where does he get off almost stealing your color what a jerk?

Remote Locator Systems, LLC, a generic company incorporated in East Texas, filed a lawsuit against seven defendants recently for allegedly violating one of its patents. That patent can be found here. They've also filed against Google, Apple, T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T.
The gist is this - some company in the late 90's thought up the idea of equipping an entire hospital with IR receivers and then putting IR blasters on every employee and important piece of equipment. Read More
