The Japanese have …

The Japanese have some weird fetishes. It’s cool though, especially the cigarette-smoking iBook-carrying kittens.

This is not good news. RIM is suing Handspring over patent infringement. Apprently, they are claiming that the QWERTY keyboard layout of the Handspring Treo devices is too similar to the keyboard layout of RIM’s Blackberry device. I don’t know the exact details of the patent infringement but this does not look good for other companies who are producing PDA devices with a QWERTY keyboard layout, like Danger’s Hiptop. Here is RIM’s patent. And you can get your own email address, if you really must have one.
