Google (GOOG) -0.8% AH in response to Apple’s (AAPL) huge patent win over Samsung (SSNLF.PK). The software patents Google acquired via Motorola Mobility, some of which recently became the subject of an ITC suit, are now more important than ever in defending Android. Microsoft (MSFT) has to be pleased with the verdict, given it could boost OEM interest in Windows Phone. 1 comment!

“If Apple really wanted to change the way people watched TV, it would change the way people paid for TV,” says Peter Kafka. But that’s not happening, since “the TV industrial complex” isn’t willing to play ball, and the industry’s dynamics are very different from mobile. Hence the current stalemate over Apple’s (AAPL) TV and set-top box ambitions. The longer it drags out, the more time the Xbox (MSFT) has to strengthen its living room lead. 2 comments!

AppSense: We Could Be The Next VMware

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Virtualization specialist AppSense may not be as well known as VMware, but the Goldman Sachs-backed company says it could become equally successful.

“Could we be the next VMware? The next Citrix? Absolutely, we believe we could,” said AppSense CEO Darron Antill in an interview with The Street. “Our ambition is to remain independent and be a leading independent software company of the decade in the user virtualization space.”

This may seem like a bold claim, but AppSense has already garnered plenty of positive attention. Last year, the company received $70 million from Goldman Sachs — Goldman’s largest technology investment other than Facebook, which raised $450 million from the bank. …

How a $140 Horse Became a Mule

Category : Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) – In 2007, “Mad Money,” TheStreet founder Jim Cramer announced with authority the arrival of a new breed of technology companies that would lead the markets in the 21st century. He called them the “Four Horsemen.”

Not only would these companies take over as the dominant leaders of Wall Street, but they were declared the replacements to Microsoft, Cisco and Intel.

Although many were quick to laugh at the time, it seems Cramer knew what he was talking about. These “horsemen” were none other than Apple, Amazon, Google and Research in Motion. …

Microsoft to Rule the Living Room

Category : Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Back in the 20th century, Microsoft sought to dominate consumer wallets through use of its market position with Microsoft Windows. Today it’s trying to do the same with the Xbox.

Most commentators have insisted that Monday’s “big announcement” is a tablet that competes with the iPad. Maybe. But that would not be a very big deal. We have tablets. We’ve even had Windows tablets.

Instead it’s more likely we’ll see an addition to the Xbox line, the Xbox 720. …
