Nintendo of America was ordered by the courts to pay $21 million to Anascape for infringing on their patented technologies.

Microsoft announced that they are now closing down their division which scans and indexes books from libraries.

Microsoft launched the project to take on similar services provided by arch rival Google.

Symantec revealed that they are working on a web based parental control service that would enable parents to keep a tight watch on what their kids do online.

Symantec said that it is more of a “family online safety” program rather than the usual parent control application.
