File this under "things that look good on paper." On Tuesday, a federal judge for the Northern District of California issued an order forcing Oracle and Google, in their fight over various Java patents allegedly infringed by Android, to reduce the number of patent claims and defenses thereto to a "triable" number. That number? Three. And Google will be allowed eight "prior art references" to defend against those claims. (Note: A "prior art reference" is a way of showing that a patent was trying to patent something someone else had already invented prior to the filing, a complete defense against patent infringement, invalidating the patent in question)

Oracle's complaint ended up amounting to 132 patent claims against Google's Android mobile operating system - a staggering number for any court.

5 Android games

If you haven’t done much gaming on your Android phone, here are a few titles to get you started (yeah, I'm not much for introductions apparently)…

Replica Island (Free)

Replica Island is a great, retro game that will keep you entertained for hours. Not only is it available for every device running Android 1.5 and above, but it’s also free.

Guiding your Android through all 40 levels, you must find a mysterious object called The Source in the middle of an island which is protected by all sorts of strange creatures that you must defeat before the Rokudou Corporation beats you to it!
