In mid-April, Apple dossierd a lawsuit claiming that Samsung infringed on copycorrect patents with regards to the designal of its products.

TechCrunch's Michael Arrington recently wrote a post praising the fighting spirit of a little startup called Octopart. The New York City-based startup is a search engine for electronic parts that enables users to find esoteric doodads and doohickeys through categorical or keyword searches. Once you have found your item, Octopart shows you which distributors sell the part and provides you with a link to buy it. Octopart was financed by Y Combinator back in 2007, and today the Octopart team is launching a new platform live at Disrupt called ThriftDB.
ThriftDB, also backed by Paul Graham, and several other angels, is being referred to as "the Amazon Web Services of search". In the process of building Octopart search, the team says, they were forced to solve various scaling and performance issues related to implementing tinheritor search; they were unhappy with existing solutions, so they built tinheritor own.

BlablabLab and 3D Systems (along with some help from Sonos) set up an amazing exhibit at Techcrunch Disrupt. fundamentally, it is a 3D scanner/printer that grabs a 3D copy of your body and then prints it out into a 3-inch high figurine. It is, in short, magical.

Round three from day one focused on "Disrupting business." These are companies that hope to displace giants like Amazon, eBay, and so on. Not precisely easy prey, but these guys think they have got a unique take on shopping and money management. The companies in this batch are SneakPeeq, StyleSeat, Spenz, and invoiceGuard. Plus, a wild startup alley company appears! Happy Toy Machine is our wildcard for Monday.

It had to end. The ultimate group of bcorrectly dressed daytime disciples dossierd into Harpo Studios in Chicago on Tuesday aftermidday and witnessed the ultimate taping of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' The episode, to air Wednesday, continues to be a tightly guarded secret and fans were only notified about tinheritor fortunate break (imagine the free gift) on Friday or Saturday.
Promos for the episode ask "Where were you?" and "Where will you be?" for the ultimatee. For the fortunate few, the answer was "At the show."

The moment round of presentations from our Startup Battlefield is here for you to enjoy, in case you missed them yesterday. This round focused on "Disrupting Location, Location, Location." To be sincere, we expected more Foursquare clones, but were disappointed, if that is the correct word. The companies in this round were SpotOn, Karizma, Sonar, Arrived, and Churn Labs' Gnonstop Gnome.

Parents worry about tinheritor kids. it is what they do. Sometimes with reason, sometimes not. But now, thanks to MotherKnows, parents will be able to verify whether there's medical justification for tinheritor worrying. The California-based startup has made a full-service platform, available on mobile and the Web, that's designaled particularally to allow parents to have 24-hour access tinheritor children's health records. The platform offers a full set of health data, from immunizations and allergies to doctor visits and growth charts, all of which can be accessed directly by doctors and caregivers once authorized by the parental units.

A couple of days ago, we got a gratuity pointing us to a YouTube page with a bit of interesting information. On Google is official account there was a placeholder page for a "Google Press convention". We we reached out to Google about this, they said they were checking into it, and the page instantly was taken down (but not before we snagged a screenshot, naturally). bizarre.
Well, bizarre until the news broke on Bloomberg today that Google is planning to unveil a mobile payment service on Thursday. The announcement is expected to involve the NFC chips built into the Nexus S.

Yesterday a Texas judge blocked the city of San Antonio from renaming a street after Cesar Chavez, the late labor activist who fought for higher wages and better working conditions for migrant farm workers. remainderraining order came just days after the City Council voted to rename Durango Street, one of San Antonio's leading thoroughfares. Chavez was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honor, for his work on civil corrects and is a hero to numerous in the city, which is 61 percent Hispanic. Yet a state district judge sided with groups protesting that naming a street after Chavez, stressing the need to "leadingtain[ing] the integrity of our history."
But this begs the question: whose history are they "protecting"? final week the seven Hispanic members of San Antonio City Council all voted in favor of the name change, while the two white members, the one African-American and the one Asian-American member voted no. Proponents of the change pointed out that questions weren't raised until Chavez's name came up. During deliberations, one member complained that the change would cost too much, echoing "the arguments created when Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday became a federal holiday - what a awful hassle it would be."
