ENTERTAINMENT: Lufthansa trialing my mediaworld - In-flight Entertainment on WiFi enabled Devices [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:19 CET under 01 - General News

Normally, short- and medium-haul flights in Europe don't have any in-flight entertainment but this could change soon. German Lufthansa has recently started a test of its new service called "my mediaworld". It gives passengers Hollywood-quality entertainment during their flights and Lufthansa is currently trialing the service on its 22.6 years old Airbus A320 D-AIPP. Like most other short- and medium-haul aircrafts, this A320 hasn't have any in-flight entertainment equipment, like screens, etc. but that's not necessary anymore since the my mediaworld entertainment system allows to use W-LAN-enabled devices such as laptops, tablets or smartphones to play movies. Lufthansa is even offering dedicated iOS and Android apps while Laptops need Silverlight installed (bad luck for Windows RT users).

SETTLEMENT: HTC and Apple settle Patent dispute - dismissing all Patent litigation between the Companies
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:16 CET under 01 - General News

While today's issued press release isn't unveiling anything except that it suggests that HTC is now out of Apple's line of fire, HTC and Apple said they have reached a global settlement that includes the dismissal of all current lawsuits and a ten-year license agreement. The license extends to current and future patents held by both parties. The terms of the settlement are confidential. Therefore nobody knows what HTC has paid Apple or which patents might be shared.
