VirnetX slaps Apple with another FaceTime lawsuit

CNETAnalysis: VirnetX is looking to squeeze a little more juice from Apple, pressing the company with another round of patent infringement lawsuits. In fact, earlier this week a Texas court ordered Apple to pay the internet security software and technology company $368 million (UK£231, AUD$353) over patent violations involving FaceTime. “We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our suit with Apple,” VirnetX CEO Kendall Larsen said in a press release. “This victory further establishes the importance of our patent portfolio.” With this new round of infringement complaints coming, VirnetX is further testing the portfolio’s worth. Same suit, new products The grievances are the same as its last suit, but now VirnetX is targeting the iPhone 5 , iPad Mini , iPad 4 , iPod Touch 5 and the latest desktop Macs. The company is looking to clean up the devices that were too new to be included in the first round. VirnetX sought $708 million (UK£442, AUD$680) in damages, but had to settle for about half that amount after the court’s ruling. The complaint included four networking patents filed between 2002 and 2011 that FaceTime allegedly infringed on. Some of the patents cover: technology that creates a virtual private network between two computers, a protocol for securing communications using secure domain names, and a method that establishes a secure communications connection based on a domain name service request. VirnetX’s victories VirnetX is known for aggressively protecting its patents, going after big tech companies that infringe on its properties. In 2010, it won a $200 million (UK£125, AUD$192) claim against Microsoft. VirnetX is also currently slugging it out with Cisco, Avaya and Siemens in infringement courts. The multimillion dollar settlement shouldn’t put too big a dent in Apple’s billions in quarterly profits , though the suits could have other ramifications. Vir! netX’s legal victories could back up claims filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission, leading to possible sales bans on some Apple products. For now VirnetX is looking to take a victory lap in courts and skin a little bit more green off Apple. Posted by: Maryum

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Ding Dong Bubble Gum Releases Animated Full Song 2015

All hail the Ding Dong Bubblegum Super Cat! The latest superhero in the line of brand-inspired animated characters.
Last year, Hilal aired a 1 minute story, showing the animated Super Cat fighting off the mice aka gooneys, who attempt to steal her Ding Dong bubblegum. The video, meant to be a teaser, cuts off with a ‘To Be Continued’ sign.

Now, we see the rest of the story….
Super Cat is back and she’s kicking mice butt, facing multiple obstacles, using her trusted bells and outsmarting her ‘nephew', the Lion.
All this and she manages to take back what’s rightfully hers… the bubblegum!
The best thing about Ding Dong is that the “Cat” in the ad has always been the same. Talk about consistency.
An extended version of the song has been introduced but still goes along the same lines of “Aik billi moti taazi thi, jo mazay se ding dong khati thi”
All in all, a fun video to watch about the age-old brand that most people consider as part of their childhood.
