Google gave two computer scientists access to more than a
million of its mobile search records in research aimed at
understanding the unique needs of wireless Web surfers. Judging by

In the latest chapter of the Research In Motion-NTP saga, U.S. District Judge James Spencer didn't issue an immediate injunction to shut down the BlackBerry service, as many have expected. He said he would make a final decision as soon as possible, although stating loud and clear that RIM had been found to violate NTP's patents. It looks like he's trying to buy more time and drive the two companies to settle outside of court.
Research In Motion's patent battle with NTP is infamous for generating mixed views about the future of the BlackBerry service in the United States. While the majority of the analyst community believes that an injunction is unlikely, the legal community is almost convinced that the case will end with one.
