    美国一家上诉法院近日裁定,卡梅隆和泰勒•文克莱沃斯必须接受2008年与Facebook达成的6500万美元和解协议。审判长亚历克斯•克兹恩斯基写道:“当事人被竞争对手打败之后,力图通过起诉获得自己在市场上无法取得的收益,在这方面文克莱沃斯兄弟不是第一人。”不过,从其进行反驳的博文来看,文克莱沃斯兄弟不会善罢甘休。泰勒回应道:“在我看来,上述观点涉及了联邦法非常重要的问题,值得整个第九巡迴上诉法院(Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals)进行复审。因此,我和我的同事将在15天内提起全体法官共同复审申请(Petition For Rehearing En Banc)。”[VentureBeat援引路透社(Reuters)]

    • 高德纳公司(Gartner)的调研预测到2015年,iPad 将占据平板电脑市场的大部分份额。该公司预计截至2011年底,iPad 将坐拥平板电脑市场69%的份额,不过,4年之后,这一比例最终将下降至47%。(高德纳)

    • 又有一个关于苹果(Apple)的传言,Avian Securities 表示,iPhone 5有望在9月投产,这可能意味着iPhone 5的发布日期将在今年底甚至明年初。一款售价稍低,同时硬件配置更精简的iPhone也有可能发布。如果这一切是真的话,那么iPhone 5将成为苹果首款不在夏季发布的智能手机。(Silicon Alley Insider)

    • 你想买一部便宜的新Kindle?现在有机会了,不过这还得看你对广告的态度,也许你觉得这样得不偿失。“特别版Kindle”将于5月3日开始发货,原价139美元的Wi-Fi版Kindle价格将下调25美元,其代价是在Kindle中嵌入了广告。这些广告将显示在Kindle的屏保上,以及主界面的最下方。(CNNMoney)

    • 上月,微软(Microsoft)的必应(Bing)搜索引擎占据了美国搜索市场30%的份额,与2月份的28.48%相比有所上升。与此同时,谷歌(Google)的市场份额从66.69%下滑至64.42%。(The Next Web)

    "It's ridiculous."

    -- a Twitter investor on the social network's $7 billion-plus private-market valuation (Silicon Alley Insider)

    A U.S. appeals court ruled today that Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, must accept the $65 million settlement reached with Facebook in 2008. Wrote Chief Judge Alex Kozinski: "The Winklevosses are not the first parties bested by a competitor who then seek to gain through litigation what they were unable to achieve in the marketplace." But from the sound of a rebuttal blog post, the Winklevii aren't having it. "In my judgment, the opinion raises extremely significant questions of federal law that merit review by the entire Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals," responded Tyler. "For that reason, my colleagues and I will file a Petition For Rehearing En Banc within the next fifteen days." (Reuters via VentureBeat)

    • Gartner research predicts the iPad will own the majority of tablet market share until 2015. The firm estimates that the popular tablet will have a 69% majority through 2011, but that figure will eventually fall to 47% four years from now. (Gartner)

    • Fiber optic company Level 3 Communications plans to buy its rival, Global Crossing, for $1.9 billion. The deal would result in a merger combining two major providers of Internet connections accounting for more than 130,000 feet of fiber optic lines. (Wall Street Journal)

    • Sony settled with George Hotz, a 21-year-old New Jersey hacker who unlocked the company's PlayStation 3 console. As part of the settlement, Hotz says he will not spread the code he used to disable the PS3's security system. (Wall Street Journal)

    • As far as the Apple rumor mill goes, Avian Securities reports the iPhone 5 will go into production in September, which would place a likely launch date towards the end of this year or even early next. A lower-priced version with lesser hardware specifications might also be in the cards. If all that's true, the iPhone 5 would be the Apple smartphone not to launch some time during the summer. (Silicon Alley Insider)

    • Want a new Kindle on the cheap? Now there's a way, but depending on how you feel about ads, it may not be worth the hassle. The "Kindle with Special Offers," which starts shipping May 3, knocks $25 off the standard $139 price of the Kindle Wi-Fi in exchange for ad placements in the e-reader's screensaver and at the bottom of the homescreen. (CNNMoney)

    • Microsoft's Bing search engine accounted for 30% of all U.S. searches last month, up from 28.48% in February. Meanwhile, Google's market share dropped from 66.69% to 64.42% during the same period. (The Next Web)

    • Did we call it, or did we call it? Facebook may be on the verge of striking a deal with China's largest search engine, Baidu. The agreement would make way for a new, jointly-owned social network unrelated to Facebook.com. (Silicon Alley Insider)

    • The netbook, finally, truly could be on its way out the door, at least if recent moves by Acer and Google are any indication. (MocoNews)
