Sprint Nextel Corporation has acquired 50.8 percent of Clearwire Corp stake after a deal that bought out Eagle River Holdings' from ownership in the company. It appears Sprint may want more control over an LTE strategy at a quick pace. Now Sprint will be able to make any choices it wants since it now has more say over Clearwire's network.
Zynga, the makers of Farmville have been outbid in their pursuit for acquiring the OnGame Network from parent company Bwin.party. The Amaya Gaming company has won what essentially amounted to a bidding war to acquire OnGame Network from the Bwin.party company. This past summer, many thought that Zynga seemed to have the lead to acquire OnGame Network, but a deal has indeed been finalized between Bwin.party and Amaya Gaming. The companies involved seem to all do well in this deal, as Bwin.party will profit significantly from the sale, and Amaya Gaming is solidifying its strength in the online gaming providing business.
Over a week ago we got our hands on the Otterbox Defender Series Case for the new Apple iPhone 5. The Defender Series case offers quite a bit of protection to the iPhone 5 and Otterbox has many variants for the case for different smartphones as well. In this video I will mention why I purchased the case and where improvements have been made. I will also mention some downfalls and missed opportunities. The case offers 3 layers of protection that include a poly-carbonate inner shell, a built in hard screen protector, and a silicone outer portion that is there to absorb shock from falls as well as cover many of the ports from dirt and debris. Check out the video after the break for a close look at this case.

The European Union's Court of Justice has ruled in favor of allowing the resell of digital content. Publishers will not be able to stop consumers from reselling their purchased downloadable content, the European Union states that "An author of software cannot oppose the resale of his 'used' licences allowing the use of his programs downloaded from the internet." However, consumers resell of content will be limited, "the first sale in the EU of a copy of a computer program by the copyrightholder or with his consent exhausts the right of distribution of that copy in the EU." We can only speculate as to whether the United States or other governmental bodies will also go forth with these same policies in the future. For now at least, consumers in European Union (EU) member states will have safe harbor under this ruling to resell digital content they purchase and download from Steam, Origin or another digital platform even if the end user license agreement prohibits that very transfer.
