  • aggregating tv shows and then seeking payment for same without paying the copyright holder will not survive, imho. maybe if they set up a hosting business and you rented or leased a dvr box it'd be ok, but then your limitation is that dvr box...setting up a server data center to capture for later sale is not allowed by the basic copyright statements of even dvds or online content from comcast,etc.

    aereo was the last hope of the infringers...

    nov 20, 2011 story:AT&T is throwing its globe trotting customers something of a bone with its Call International App. The free VoIP service, created with help from 8x8, will allow customers to place international long-distance calls over WiFi for much less than they would have to pay under standard roaming plans. Calls to China, France, Germany and the UK are as little as $0.04 a minute when dialing a landline. The app is available for all versions of the iPhone and certain Android and BlackBerry handsets. You can see if your device is supported (and chances are it is -- even the ancient BlackBerry 5810 has been granted access to the party) at the more coverage link. And don't miss the PR after the break.

  • 'There are a lot of interesting facts, presentations, and historical detail coming out of the Apple vs. Samsung patent case currently under way. It is also slowly reeling in Google’s flavour of Android into the spotlight.

    As part of the Mobile Applications Development Agreement between Samsung and Google, the Mountain View based company is bound by the agreement to provide backup in the event of a legal dispute, with Google counsel James Maccoun confirming on the stand that “Google is asking Samsung to tender the defense so that Google can defend Samsung.”

    This agreement relates both to indemnity of the defense costs and liability, although no financial or strategic details. It covers a subset of patents, and in this case specifically the ’959′ suit (patent #6847959) which deals with mixing local and web search on a device'

  • Android: Microsoft and Motorola Solutions agree on patents
    April 23rd, 2014 - 01:35 am ET by J. G.
    Motorola Solutions has joined the group of companies who have signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft to cover the patents used by their devices running both Android and Chrome OS.

    TC55-Motorola-SolutionsIt’s not Motorola Mobility but Motorola Solutions who have signed a licensing agreement with for the use of their patents. These concern the Motorola Solution devices that use both Android and Chrome OS.

    In 2011, Motorola was cut into two separate entities: Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions. Google purchased the Smartphone and tablet manufacturing division for the general public – which will again be sold off late this year to Lenovo, although Google will maintain the portfolio of patents.

    Motorola Solutions was focussed on the business sector with hardened onboard devices and associated services. Such products are aimed at a diverse range of work environments such as commerce, warehouses, police services and public administration.

    Last week, competing group Zebra Technologies – a specialist in code bars scanning and RFID solutions, announced that they would be purchasing Motorola Solutions dedicated division for 3.45 billion dollars.

  • vcsy....wag...ya thnk? now goog is going to go toe to toe with apple over android? now maybe we find out if apple is infringing the same patents as sammie/lg/interwoven? of interest...we all know msft has already taken a license for vcsy 744/629. 8x8 might also be the source of voip platform development? 8x8 hasn't reported revenue based on platform royalties ...so likely they allowed the license in exchange for a edge on how their other patents would have to be used with the voip platforms for full success. we are about to see the switch hit...but due to the fcc dragging it's feet over some rural yahoos who won't upgrade, things are slowed down... ok, so then we've got att and msft with a private network to azure...you want to bet it's going to be all ip? back a few years ago 8x8 had worked with vz and lu jv in imerge...which at that time was for hybrid data stuff. costly to have two networks. bell south now owned by t was also imerge customer...something i've been looking at 10 or more years ago myson century also licensed 8x8 reference voip platform....myson...hmm masa yoshi son is softbanks chairman...a coincidence? son and softbank are working with vz/vod/chinamobile to get more voip platform stuff...duh, wonder why? anyway,apple , it was a good run............if you want to keep the covers on the white labeled phone, you're going to sign an agreement with vcsy likely a private one, and make a public cross licensing statement with goog.
    hey, the judge has been telling you to settle.....or , the world is going to have to witness a public flogging of a famous personality? wag...if when they hit the all ip switch, apple is not on board...perhaps their phone doesn't do the walk? softbank is likely pushing apple to do the right thing as he's been big in apple expansion in the asian markets. he's even partnered with 8x8 for a product he will both use and be channel sales for...anyway, that's one take this am. maybe that's why tim cook always looks upset?

  • DALLAS — Sept. 18, 2013 — AT&T** and Microsoft Corp. today announced they will deliver a security-enhanced and reliable cloud solution that will allow enterprise customers to connect to Microsoft’s cloud platform using a private network.

    The new solution will use breakthrough cloud integration technology from AT&T to pair virtual private networking with Microsoft’s industry-leading Windows Azure cloud platform. Customers of the solution are expected to benefit from the enterprise-grade security of virtual private networking, with as much as 50 percent lower latency than the public Internet, and access to cloud resources from any site using almost any wired or wireless device.

    “This is a game changer for businesses that have been seeking a more secure way to reap the benefits of cloud services,” said Andy Geisse, CEO, AT&T Business Solutions. “By bringing the security and performance of our virtual private network to Windows Azure, we expect to energize enterprise demand for cloud solutions.”

    Enterprises continue to cite concerns about security and reliable performance in their decision to adopt cloud computing. Working together, Microsoft and AT&T will address these concerns by enabling enterprise customers to quickly and reliably connect applications and services from their own datacenters (private clouds) to the Windows Azure cloud service using the protective confines and high transmission speeds of a highly-secure virtual private network.

    AT&T’s cloud integration technology, AT&T NetBond, bonds networking and computing resources together and automates functions that are often performed manually. It allows the network and compute resources to flex in tandem to support the fluctuating demands on systems that enterprise cloud users often experience throughout the year. AT&T customers are already able to take advantage of the technology with AT&T’s own cloud offers.

  • The alliance speaks to the scale of Mr. Chernin’s ambitions. A veteran of the media business, he brings operating experience and industry expertise to the partnership. In AT&T, he has found the potential for broad distribution through its customer base and wireless networks.

    The group plans to focus on “over the top” video services, which use broadband connections rather than cable or satellite systems, and which are seen as a potential threat to the status quo in television. The investors plan to look at video on demand and streaming services that earn revenue from subscriptions and advertising.

    “This is not a venture just to try and do Hulu, or just to try and duplicate Hulu,” Mr. Chernin said in an interview on Tuesday. “Our primary focus is to build operating companies.”

    The Hulu bid, while not successful, provided the genesis for the new project. In working with AT&T on the bid, Mr. Chernin said, he realized the partners were “fundamentally aligned.

  • 8x8, embedded hashtag/rfid, zendesk, rubicon project, vcsy for getting data(which is requested,intended,thought about), data is ad, local merchant or big box the story is told in the rfid/hashtag, banking from ba/welllsfargo/merchantwarehouse/amex/visa, ....merchants and tell if ad is successful with the hashtag data and subssequent purchase of same , similar, product anywhere as their hashtag data is collected and processed by hosted services of an amazon where data is crunched and database maintained. wag......so defiinitely some vcsy, msft, ibm, oracle, in here. for allowing this the wireless players get a taste ...now it's more apparent why a comcast wants wireless to supplement their wifi networks....it's also readily apparent why the wireless players want to support mobile virtual networks...........ad money. what's that worth? targeted ads with ability to measure the success of same? you either play in the space or look for a niche someplace else. your choice.
