On IPs and Patents

On Monday, Google will finally get a chance to defend Android–the leading mobile operating system in the world, the linchpin of its mobile strategy and a lightning rod for criticism–in open court against those who charge Google has stolen its way into the smartphone market, as Oracle’s lawsuit against the company finally comes to trial. Here’s what you need to know:
What’s all this, then? Well, my British-sounding friend, this is where we stand nearly 20 months after Oracle first filed a patent suit against Google, alleging that the Dalvik virtual machine used in Android infringed on Sun Microsystems patented technology. Sun had developed Java and later sold itself to Oracle. That part of the case hasn’t gone exactly how Oracle had hoped: of the seven patents it originally asserted against Google in August 2010, only two will be argued before Judge William Alsup in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California after re-examinations cast doubt on the other five.
Two is better than none, right? That’s certainly true. However, the focus of the case has actually shifted over the last six months from patents to copyright. Oracle is now hoping to convince a jury that Google copied liberally from the APIs (application programming interfaces) associated with Java when creating Android, and that those APIs are subject to copyright protection. But even then, the overall amount of damages Oracle will be able to collect should it prevail has been dramatically reduced by the judge.
What’s an API? Basically, it’s a set of rules and guidelines that one piece of software uses to make sure it can interact with another piece of software. Oracle is saying that engineers working on Java came up with unique artistic ways to steer those interactions, and that should be subject to copyright. Google, as you might imagine, disagrees that APIs are a creative expression. Google says they are functional and not subject to copyright protection.
Who is going to win? That would be the point of the trial. But Oracle’s argument is novel: if it were to prevail, the ruling would be “fairly catastrophic” to software developers, Simon Wardley of Computer Sciences Corp. told BusinessWeek last week. APIs are so widely used that were Oracle’s interpretation to be upheld, a new wave of litigation that would make the mobile patent wars look like Twitter fights could take hold.
This is confusing. Yep. Complex technologies and legal issues will be argued in front of jurors, and these things are difficult to understand for professionals. Judge Alsup tried very hard to get the parties to settle this dispute–especially after the meat of Oracle’s patent claims went away–and he has gone so far as to dub this “the World Series of IP (intellectual property) trials.”
What is Oracle’s best weapon? The day that Oracle lawyers read an e-mail from Google’s Tim Lindholm to Andy Rubin, the leader of the Android project, every eye in the courtroom will be watching the reaction of the jurors. In that e-mail, which Google unsuccessfully tried to keep out of this trial, Lindholm wrote what will be a central part of Oracle’s argument that Google knew it was copying Java:

What we’ve actually been asked to do by Larry [Page] and Sergey [Brin] is to investigate what technical alternatives exist to Java for Android and Chrome. We’ve been over a bunch of these and think they all suck. We conclude that we need to negotiate a license for Java under the terms we need.

Google has argued that Lindholm was reacting to Oracle’s legal threats in suggesting it might be better to take a license rather than try something else, but it may not matter: it’s not out of the question that a few jurors may see this as Lindholm telling his bosses that Google had used something that required a license.
How long is this going to take? Probably eight weeks, although my colleague Jeff Roberts and I won’t be surprised if the parties settle this thing before it ever gets to the jury. There will be three phases: first the companies will argue the copyright question, and then they’ll consider the patent question. Once that is wrapped up, the third phase will involve how much Google might have to pay in damages to Oracle.
What does this mean for Android? At one point it looked like this case was going to be a referendum on the ongoing patent cases being tried against Android partners like Samsung, HTC, and Motorola, but the patent part of this case has definitely taken a back seat to the copyright question. So those cases will likely continue to plod along regardless of what happens in San Francisco.
Google told BusinessWeek that it has removed the disputed parts of Android’s code from the most recent version of the operating system, so it’s also unlikely to affect Android going forward. The most likely outcome, should Google be found in the wrong, is that it will have to cut a big check: albeit for a fraction of what it hopes to spend on its acquisition of Motorola.
This case is unique, however, in that it’s the only Android legal dispute that directly involves Google as a defendant. It’s possible that Oracle could win an injunction against sales of older Android handsets, since it does still have two patents in its arsenal. However, it’s really hard to get an injunction, and given that legal experts seem much more interested in the copyright portion of the trial than the patent portion, Oracle might find that a tough goal.
A lot depends on the classification of technologies and the legal definitions of copyrights, licenses, patents of IPs. An API is generic and cannot be copyrighted unless you have patented your own technologies on the very specific use which the API is just a series of codes of that technology. IPs and technologies must not be seen as a setback for mankind to move forward, and companies who own IPs must be willing to collaborate to get maximum returns as a battle in the courts will do it no good, companies who will cement their foothold needs to invest in their patents and technologies.

Haemophilia : A rare blood disorder

Fibrin (also called Factor Ia) is a fibrous, non-globular protein involved in the clotting of blood. It is formed from fibrinogen by the protease thrombin, and is then polymerised to form a “mesh” that forms a hemostatic plug or clot (in conjunction with platelets) over a wound site.
Fibrin is involved in signal transduction, blood coagulation, and platelet activation.
A protease (also termed peptidase or proteinase) is any enzyme that conducts proteolysis, that is, begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds that link amino acids together in the polypeptide chain forming the protein.
Thrombin is a “trypsin-like” serine protease protein that in humans is encoded by the F2 gene.[2][3] Prothrombin (coagulation factor II) is proteolytically cleaved to form thrombin in the coagulation cascade, which ultimately results in the stemming of blood loss. Thrombin in turn acts as a serine protease that converts soluble fibrinogen into insoluble strands of fibrin, as well as catalyzing many other coagulation-related reactions.
The activity of proteases is inhibited by protease inhibitors. One example of protease inhibitors is the serpin superfamily, which includes alpha 1-antitrypsin, C1-inhibitor, antithrombin, alpha 1-antichymotrypsin, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, and neuroserpin.
Natural protease inhibitors include the family of lipocalin proteins, which play a role in cell regulation and differentiation. Lipophilic ligands, attached to lipocalin proteins, have been found to possess tumor protease inhibiting properties. The natural protease inhibitors are not to be confused with the protease inhibitors used in antiretroviral therapy. Some viruses, with HIV/AIDS among them, depend on proteases in their reproductive cycle. Thus, protease inhibitors are developed as antiviral means.

The study of protease inhibitors could lead to a breakthru in the knowledge of fribinogen, which is essential in the clotting of blood, the missing gene factors of a person with this disease compared to a normal person, and the breakdown of molecules found in fribinogen, will unlock all the keys. If you could reverse engineer the protease inhibitors, you could in fact produce fribinogen, but no knowledge is available at present.

Tour of TSMC at Taiwan

Designing the Intelligent software using ARMv8(64bit-1st Generation) architecture. Next Generation(128bit-Huge Cache). The birth of intelligent devices with basic instruction sets, minimum 7″ display to display huge cache of data.

Released in late 2011, ARMv8 represents the first fundamental change to the ARM architecture. It adds a 64-bit architecture, dubbed ‘AArch64’, and a new ‘A64’ instruction set. Within the context of ARMv8, the 32-bit architecture and instruction set are referred to as ‘AArch32’ and ‘A32’, respectively. The Thumb instruction sets are referred to as ‘T32’ and have no 64-bit counterpart. ARMv8 allows 32-bit applications to be executed in a 64-bit OS, and for a 32-bit OS to be under the control of a 64-bit hypervisor.[1] As of March 2012, only the ARMv8-A (“application”) profile has been defined, and no implementations have been announced.

To both AArch32 and AArch64, ARMv8 makes VFP and advanced SIMD (NEON) standard. It also adds cryptography instructions supporting AES and SHA-1/SHA-256.

AArch64 features:

New instruction set, A64
31 general-purpose 64-bit registers
Instructions are still 32 bits long and mostly the same as A32
Most instructions can take 32-bit or 64-bit arguments
Addresses assumed to be 64-bit
A new exception system
Fewer banked registers and modes
Memory translation from 48-bit virtual addresses based on the existing LPAE, which was designed to be easily extended to 64-bit

Nokia’s fate will turn around with new Windows software

HELSINKI – Ailing cellphone maker Nokia has the cash to survive seven quarters like the last, but investors are losing faith that it can break the vicious circle that keeps customers and in turn application developers from its new phones.
Chief Executive Stephen Elop, who joined from Microsoft in 2010, gambled last year that ditching Nokia’s homegrown Symbian phone software in favor of a largely untried version from his old employer would put the company back in the driving seat.
Despite getting the new Windows Phone models out at breakneck speed, it has sold fewer than expected, as consumers remain wedded to Apple’s iPhones or Samsung models running Google’s Android system, both of which come with a bigger range of applications supported by a much larger population of developers.
“It is too early to write Nokia off,” said analyst Peter Cunningham at Canalys. “It is still in the middle of its transition to Windows Phone, but it doesn’t have the luxury of time. The next six months will be critical in the company’s long-term future. The Lumia 610 needs to be a success, and it needs some hit products in the market in time for Christmas.”
In the first quarter Nokia sold just over 2 million Lumia phones, compared with expected sales of 31 million iPhones and the 37 million smartphones Samsung is expected to sell in the quarter, according to a Reuters poll.
The market consensus is that it needs to sell 27 million this year, 55 million next year, and 94 million in 2014, according to analysts polled by Reuters.
“If they can show the volume, then the next Nokia tune is ‘Stairway to Heaven’. If not, it is ‘How Low Can You Go’, or ‘Bye Bye Baby’,” said John Strand, founder of Danish research firm Strand Consult.
To make the volumes, the company needs to resolve a Catch-22 dilemma: To sell more phones, you need more apps, but to attract app developers, you need to sell more phones.
There are about 80,000 applications that owners of models running Windows Phone can enjoy, a drop in the ocean compared with the half a billion available to Apple and Android users.
Nokia burned through 700 million euros of cash in the first quarter, leaving 4.9 billion euros (S$8 billion) at the end of March, but as its share price tumbles, it might run out of time before it runs out of cash.
Its market value, about a tenth of its recent peak in 2007, the year the iPhone stormed the market, is just 11.3 billion euros, making it increasingly attractive as a takeover target, though industry followers said predators would likely move only after some evidence that the Windows Phone strategy was working.
A Reuters poll showed Nokia likely lost its position as the world’s largest cellphone maker in the first quarter to rival Samsung Electronics, after dominating the market for 14 years.
“At the moment it seems that the strategic decisions were not correct,” said Timo Rothovius, Chairman of the Finnish Shareholders Union, which represents small-cap local investors who have increased their holdings during the freefall.
“It might be that the Windows phones still take off, but at the moment it is hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Something radical has to be done. The company’s credibility in the market is weak, and it suggests that maybe betting everything on one card wasn’t a good thing,” Mr Rothovius said. REUTERS

At the moment it seems that the strategic decisions were not correct”

At the moment, treat your present product line as transistional, to help you make a better perfect product, software bugs is a publicity nightmare, you need to move on with new software and applications that is near to perfection, and Windows 8 will hold the key. If you are able to measure the demand, by aiming for a perfect product you can sell millions, and processes to fulfill demand with a perfect supply chain strategy will return profitability with maximum profits, are you game for the challenge, to return back to Number 1 all over again? 
You need to move volume, if you know this is a transistional product, what will you do? I can play with so many factors of reasons for people to buy a Windows phone, pricing might be close to cost, but you straight away got market share, to prepare your next product which is a winner, to bring back profitability, or else your next perfect product might be muted by your image of branding.
What is your core strength? With Windows you are immediately linked to Office productivity with Skype video communications, if you are able to leverage it out, nobody will come close to you.
If you can give developers a new tool to port their apps from iPhone and Andriod, you don’t even need to your increase your own platform for your own developers anymore. I can give you hundreds of factors to increase your market share.

What a Load of Rubbish!

SINGAPORE: Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Lee Yi Shyan said Singapore must be careful about raising wages without a corresponding increase in productivity.
Mr Lee was responding to media questions about Professor Lim Chong Yah’s recent wage restructuring proposal on the sidelines of a community event.
Prof Lim had said a wage revamp is needed to address the issue of growing income inequality.
This includes progressively raising the pay of low income workers and freezing the wages of top earners.
Prof Lim suggested that those earning below S$1,500 a month should have their pay increase by 50 per cent over the next three years, and freezing wages of those earning S$15,000 or more a month, for the same period.
Prof Lim was one of those involved in Singapore’s economic restructuring exercise in the late 1970s.
“In a free market system, for it to work well, we have to be very mindful of the interventions we introduce and if you artificially raise it too much… there are consequences and some of these consequences are not what you want to see,” said Mr Lee.
“So I think by Prof Lim’s proposal, if I understand him correctly… I think this is a very drastic way of raising the wages without corresponding increase in productivity and that will have a wide impact on the economy,” he added.

Just introduce Minimum Wage for those who earn less than $1k by funding $1 for every single dollar of their salary, those affected are not large a grouping, but the funds can be derived by privating the HDB which is a cash cow, is the government willing to do that to achieve Swiss standard of Living? Impact? Those in the income bracket $1k-2k will have a pressure to increase their salary, an increase of business costs of between 3-5%, but does the benefits outweigh the investments? Yes. You will definitely win in 2016, you need to give away to get back what you deserve, understand my logic? Heeheehee.
