Microsoft wins in a second Alcatel/Lucent patent
suit. On that note Sony and the company which owns the vibration technology
in game pads have settled
their dispute. Sanyo and Lenovo will share
the cost of the battery recall.
The ThinkPad battery recall, which was announced Thursday, comes during
an investigation of Sanyo by Japan's securities watchdog the Securities Exchange
and Surveillance Commission (SESC).
