Al Hilwa: “Q & A: What’s Oracle-Google Lawsuit All About?”

Osvaldo Pinali Doederlein: “Android = Java”

Andreas Constantinou: “Is Android Evil?”

Jason Hiner: “The dirty little secret about Google Android”

Wall Street Journal: “Google and the Search for the Future”

us-copyright-office.png This decision just in: The U.S. Library of Congress, which oversees the Copyright Office, has just announced new rules that effectively legitimize unlocking and jailbreaking of phones.

This is significant, because the ruling states that owners of phones actually do own the phone, rather than just being a licensee of the manufacturer, and thus are allowed to circumvent controls that the manufacturer put in place to limit what is considered fair use of the device.

This opens up, at least in the U.S., choice for phone users with respect to using different wireless carriers as well as installing 3rd party applications from alternate sources, and doing so legally.
