Lawsuits Against Google : Facts vs Fiction

37 lawsuits have been filed against Android in a little more than a year, the latest one of them being Microsoft's lawsuit against Barnes & Noble, Foxconn and Inventec. ReadWriteWeb says 'the number of patent lawsuits related to the Android operating system is unprecedented' and shows an infographic that is also available on Twitpic and as a PDF file, on Scribd. The first two suits were filed in March 2010 by Apple and MobileMedia against HTC.

The original source of the chart, the FOSS Patents blog, says that Android's market share is only one factor, other reasons being that Google's patent portfolio is 'far too weak for what's undertaken in connection with Android'; that Google doesn't do 'inbound licensing' from trolls; and that Google tends to ignore patent issues because Google itself is rarely sued: in most of these cases, Android device makers are under attack

Top 10 Youtube Partners :Male Videos Usage

comScore Video Metrix recently announced the availability of YouTube Partner Reporting, providing a never-before-seen look at viewership across hundreds of YouTube partners and their channels.  This enhancement will undoubtedly have advertisers and agencies asking  important questions like:  Which YouTube Partners are driving the most video viewership, and what are the demographics of those video viewers?
Of the many metrics available in Video Metrix, “Videos per Viewer” offers a strong indicator of viewer engagement, providing the average number of videos that were consumed by a target audience in a specific time period.  Simply put, the more videos a user watches, the greater the opportunity to reach them with ads.
Below we unveil the Top 10 YouTube Partners by Videos per Male Viewer.  When it comes to Male audiences on YouTube, Machinima leads the way with an average of 18.5 videos per male viewer in July 2011.  VEVO ranked second at 13.3, followed by Maker Studios at 10.0

Twitter, Lazyweb Expose the Limits of Google

The term lazyweb has been used to describe the act of outsourcing questions to people online, particularly when the people asking are admittedly too lazy to research themselves (think: bloggers to their readers, everyone else to all their friends)," explains a new infographic created by Column Five Media and Inbox Q. "With Twitter, people around the world are asking #lazyweb what they don't want to Google."
The lazyweb hashtag is rarely used anymore -- it peaked in 2008 and has been declining with increasing rapidity over time -- but people still turn to Twitter when they want to outsource a question. Or get a product recommendation. Or decide what restaurant to visit when driving through an unfamiliar town.
