Apple Starts Using iTun.es Link Shortener for Tweets

No comments:



Apple has started using the iTun.es link shortener for tweets from Ping.

When iTunes first began integrating Ping with Twitter it was thought that they would use this domain; however, up till today they have been using Twitter's own shortening service.

Apple Bidding on Nortel's Patent Assets?

No comments:



Apple is reportedly one of several big players bidding for Nortel's patent assets that are being sold in a rare intellectual-property portfolio sale following Nortel's bankruptcy, according to Reuters.

Sources expect the sale to draw wireless telecom newcomers Apple and Google, which want to build up patent war chests as they fight incumbents such as Nokia, which want to protect their patent positions, in the courts.

"There has been one round of bidding on those patents, this has been completed," said one source, who declined to be identified because the process is private. "And what Nortel has done is divide the patents up into different lots covering different kinds of technologies."

Nortel holds more than 4,000 patents which could be worth more than one billion dollars. The patents have reportedly be grouped into six "buckets" of related technologies. Final bids are due within several weeks.
