EFF defends Android whistleblower from Carrier IQ lawsuit

Smartphones are a minefield of potential privacy and security violations on the best of days, and careless software implementations like HTC's recent Sense UI issue don't help. So when XDA-Developers poster TrevE found some disturbingly direct violations of Android users' privacy in the Carrier IQ tracking software, he made it known to as many people as possible, with citations and evidence as needed. Now Carrier IQ has sent him a cease and desist letter, threatening legal action if he doesn't remove his research and allegations. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a legal defense group for technology enthusiasts and issues, has offered him assistance.

Oracle vs Google Android lawsuit to End

It's been over a year since we first reported that Oracle was looking into a suit against Google for its perceived infringement of their Java code, and we've finally come to a point where it appears that both parties are willing to reach, maybe, perhaps, a settlement. This settlement may well come in this newest announced move for a mediation meeting between representatives from Google and representatives from Oracle, this newest move sparking talk about how serious Google is taking the case and questions over whether or not they're prepared to defend themselves in a case that could, ultimately, believe it or not, end up in the destruction of Android as we know it today.

Lately when I've seen anything related to a lawsuit in technology news I've immediately thought of either Apple or Microsoft but mainly the first one.
