Earlier this morning Microsoft accused Google of false advertising. Google responds.
This morning, David Howard, Corporate Vice President & Deputy General Counsel at Microsoft (MSFT) took the opportunity to look at unsealed documents to point out something, that if true or genuine, would seem to be a pretty big deal.
Last Friday afternoon, I learned that a batch of court documents had been unsealed and had revealed one particularly striking development: the United States MORESeth Weintraub - Apr 11, 2011 5:32 PM ET
The collaborative abilities of Google's office products keep getting more robust.
In a Blog post today, Google (GOOG) announced that Docs will now have fullly integrated discussions ability.
Today, we're updating comments in Google Docs to facilitate rapid and seamless discussions and integrate with email in an intuitive way. Since there are a number of significant improvements, this update is only available for newly created documents for now.
Think of it as annotations on steroids. MORESeth Weintraub - Mar 16, 2011 12:27 PM ET
Keeping it all in the Google ad family...
Today, Google (GOOG) is sending some of its Admob mobile app developers some good news. The search giant will start placing Adsense ads inside of apps that use Google's Admob advertising. That means fill rate will skyrocket toward 100% and developers will get paid much more, across the board.
The move may also pull some of Apple's (AAPL) iAds user-developers away, especially those who MORESeth Weintraub - Mar 11, 2011 3:57 PM ET
A small percentage of people have been without their Gmail accounts since Sunday.
Imagine if you lost your entire email inbox, sent box, folders –everything.
A small number of Gmail users logged into their accounts over the weekend to find just that.
Immediately, Google (GOOG) support forums started filling up and Google's App Status dashboard issued the ominous warning, "We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Mail. We will provide more information MORESeth Weintraub - Feb 28, 2011 1:01 PM ET
The move would instantly allow the PlayBook to have access to Android's library of 100,000+ apps.
Gleacher & Company analyst Mark McKechnie, in a note to clients today said that RIM (RIMM) may be building into its QNX-powered PlayBook tablet the ability to run Google's (GOOG) Android Apps.
Our checks suggest RIMM is planning to offer Android apps compatibility which would be a HUGE win IF it worked properly. We are skeptical, however, as MORESeth Weintraub - Dec 7, 2010 11:48 AM ET
Welcome to Google's Cloud Connect, Microsoft Office users.
With its purchase of DocVerse in March, Google (GOOG) obviously had the intentions of integrating Microsoft Office Applications into its Google Apps Cloud. Today, Docverse has turned into Google Cloud Connect.
With the plug-in, Office users can now simultaneously edit and store their documents in the Apps Cloud space that Google provides to businesses and schools.
Microsoft (MSFT) has similar functionality with its Live Office 2010 applications, MORESeth Weintraub - Nov 22, 2010 12:33 PM ET
Download the latest iPhone app at your own peril. This year the scam is to grab all the user's data and resell it.

I woke up this morning to stories in my aggregator about Path.com. I had heard about it before its launch, and was intrigued by the name. Turns out it's yet another instant photo sharing iPhone app. I have limited enthusiasm for them, I already use MORENov 15, 2010 11:56 AM ET
Among tablet owners, it's their favorite Web browser, according to a new survey
The 500 or so Apple (AAPL) iPad owners who responded to Business Insider's survey last week were self-selected, so they're not what you would call a scientific sample. But their answers, posted Saturday, are instructive. Among the results that caught our eye:
77.6% say they use their iPad more now than when they first got it. Nearly 85% are MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 14, 2010 5:56 AM ET
There is a lot happening next week in Android-land, but the biggest impact may come from the biggest U.S. carrier.
Along with the Samsung Continuum and possibly a new Nexus Two, Verizon (VZ) is going to release its Android App Store next week. Or at least that's what a note says on its website:
"Verizon Wireless will begin pushing a software update to the DROID Incredible next week. The update includes software MORESeth Weintraub - Nov 4, 2010 3:14 PM ET
The new Android App looks pretty darn good on my Galaxy Tab.
I'm not sure why Facebook isn't delivering a great app for the iPad, but I fired up the Android Market after Mark Zuckerberg's Mobile announcement today and found a brilliant new app waiting for my Samsung Galaxy Tab. Sure, it is the same app that phones like the Sprint EVO and Verizon Droid use but because Android scales to many MORESeth Weintraub - Nov 3, 2010 5:06 PM ET
