  • 1/15   Slowing Twitter user growth tests Wall Street's patience
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Twitter Inc's slowing user growth has revived concerns about the microblogging service's prospects of one day matching Facebook Inc's 1.2 billion users, prompting at least 16 analysts to cut their target price on the stock. Twitter's shares, which have shed about a third of their value since the beginning of the year, opened down 11 percent at $37.80 on Wednesday, making it one of the top percentage losers on the New York Stock Exchange. Twitter has divided Wall Street into two broad camps: those who consider it an overvalued company with fading potential, and those who believe it to be a phenomenon capable of matching Facebook's growth. Twitter also raised concerns by saying its 255 million monthly users appeared to be checking the service less frequently than a year ago.

  • 2/15   PayPal burnishes brand image as mobile use surges
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Deepa Seetharaman SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The online payment company PayPal is getting a shiny new look and its first-ever global marketing push as parent eBay Inc tries to wrest attention away from the growing number of rivals piling into the mobile payments market. The brand overhaul unveiled on Wednesday includes a more vibrant, simple logo designed to suit mobile phones and wearable devices like wristbands and PayPal's first-ever television ads in the U.S. market. The move comes as PayPal, the dominant online payment processor, shifts its focus toward mobile phones and the fast-growing market to enable consumers to pay for physical goods and services with their smartphones. "If you look at us visually online, we look very similar to financial service companies," said Christina Smedley, vice president of global brand and communications at PayPal.

  • 3/15   U.S. high court conflicted over Limelight Networks patent fight
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday appeared unsure how to proceed in a dispute over whether Limelight Networks Inc infringed upon patented technology for managing Web images and video held by Akamai Technologies Inc. The nine justices are weighing whether a company can be held liable for inducing patent infringement when the final step that leads to infringement is carried out by a third party. The justices are reviewing an August 2012 ruling by a divided U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Akamai's favor, which effectively made it easier to prove that a company is liable based on the induced infringement theory. But as several justices noted on Wednesday, the appeals court did not decide the question of whether direct infringement had occurred before ruling that there was induced infringement. Justice Samuel Alito and Justice Elena Kagan both raised concerns that a Supreme Court ruling on the induced infringement question would be rendered largely meaningless unless the direct infringement issue was resolved.

  • 4/15   Elop's Nokia 'golden parachute' swells to $33 million
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Former Nokia boss Stephen Elop will get 24.2 million euros ($33.4 million) in cash and shares after leaving the Finnish company, more than 25 percent higher than originally envisaged following a surge in its share price. Nokia announced in September a 5.6-billion-euro deal to sell its handset unit to Microsoft. Elop himself is returning to the software giant after the deal closed on Friday, and based on Nokia's share price in September he had been in line to get around 18.8 million euros for the early termination of his contract. Elop, whose severance payment includes just over 4 million euros in cash, stood down as Nokia chief executive in September and led the phone unit from then until the closing of the deal with Microsoft.

    We can't say that the future of Ubuntu for Android ever looked particularly bright, but we were enamored with the concept. You'd walk around by day with a standard issue Android phone in your pocket, but when you docked it to a keyboard, mouse and monitor you were greeted with a full Ubuntu desktop experience. Well, Canonical has decided to put the project out to pasture apparently.

  • 14/15   Scientists regenerate muscle in five seriously injured patients
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Human muscle can repair itself on its own, so long as it doesn't suffer severe damage. But researchers now say that a new surgical technique can enable the regeneration of some muscle after large amounts are lost in accidents or war injuries, offering a much improved path to recovery. The technique involves implanting a small biological scaffolding at the injury site and then entering patients into an aggressive physical therapy regimen, and researchers say that the initial results have led to quality of life improvements for all patients of the procedure. In all cases, the patients had previously lost over half of their treated limb's muscle and were no longer seeing improvements through physical therapy.
