Finnish publication YLE reports that Nokia’s last mobile phone factory in the country has stopped producing handsets. The factory at Salo in Western Finland will formally be closed in September. It is estimated that some 780 people will lose their jobs.

The move is not unexpected. Nokia is also cutting jobs in Mexico and Hungry, all in a bid to shift production to Asia. In February it announced, ‘Shifting device assembly to Asia is targeted at improving our time to market. By working more closely with our suppliers, we believe that we will be able to introduce innovations into the market more quickly and ultimately be more competitive [...] We recognize the planned changes are difficult for our employees and we are committed to supporting our personnel and their local communities during the transition’.

iPhone 5 to have thinner, better screen

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the next iPhone, expected to be revealed this fall, will use an in-cell technology that will make the screen thinner. They are reporting these screens are already in production:

Japanese liquid-crystal-display makers Sharp Corp. and Japan Display Inc.â€"a new company that combined three Japanese electronics makers’ display unitsâ€"as well as South Korea’s LG Display Co. are currently mass producing panels for the next iPhone using so-called in-cell technology, the people said.

The new in-cell technology integrates touch sensors into the LCD removing the need for a separate component layer for touch capabilities. Besides reducing thickness, this technology supposedly also improves image quality. The Wall Street Journal also claims it will help reduce Apple’s costs by eliminating separate suppliers for each component.

RIM forks out $147m in patent infringement case

It seems that Research In Motion just can’t cut a break. Already plagued with problems of its own, RIM is now being forced to pay Mformation Technologies fees due in a legal case where the BlackBerry maker apparently infringed on patents belonging to Mformation.

Jurors decided that RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server infringed on patents from Mformation and awarded damages of $8 for every device BlackBerry has sold. With 18.4 million units sold to date, that clocks in a legal bill of $147 million.

RIM said in a statement that they still believe that they owned the technologies being used, and that Mformation has no real claim in the case. RIM has worked hard for many years to independently develop its leading-edge BlackBerry technology and industry-leading intellectual property portfolio, and RIM does not believe that the Mformation patent in question is valid,” the company said in a statement.

This ruling comes at a time where RIM is already struggling to compete with the likes of Apple and Android, and recently announced an unsurprising first quarter loss for the company.

Windows SkyDrive updated with a new logo

The new version of SkyDrive for Windows tells the user how it is behaving by offering a new status window. After many users requested for a simple way to check this function, SkyDrive provides a small status window when clicked (in the system tray). The status informs the user about the time SkyDrive was updated, with information in regards to megabytes & the files being transferred.

Neowin also reports that, for SkyDrive power users, some features have been added: options like View sync problems” and Report a problem” are now shown as options in the context menu. These make it a lot easier to diagnose/solve problems in the system. However, Mike Torres from Microsoft says that most of these changes are not visible to users in this update. As reported in the Windows Blog, Mike Torres mentions in regards to the updates, this one improves performance, reliability, and compatibility of SkyDrive,” enabling the users to confidently auto-sync files.

Additionally, the SkyDrive logo was also updated. With the upcoming release of Windows 8, the time was right to redesign the SkyDrive logo. The refreshed logo is a natural evolution of the work we’re doing across Microsoft to deliver a more consistent experience across all of our products,” said Mike Torres.

The app can be downloaded from the SkyDrive website.

The Amazon Kindle Fire is a robust little tablet, currently running Android 2.3. So what could make the tablet even better? Why, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean of course.

The smart cookies over at xdadevelopers have been hard at work to get the port running, ahead of Google’s own 7″ tablet launch, the Nexus 7.

Want Windows 8 UI on your iOS device? There’s an app for that!

One of the best things you can do to your iOS device is to Jailbreak it. The variety of apps, which would normally not be allowed on the App Store, is truly incredible and allows a whole lot of features to be introduced just as easily as downloading an app from the store. Here’s one of them: Windows 8 UI skin.

The skin runs on-top of dreamboard and is surprisingly robust. It replicates Windows 8′s Metro UI quite well with the smooth flowing titles, icons and menus. It even has a ‘desktop’ shortcut which allows you to switch between the normal iOS UI and the skin.

Check out the video below for a demonstration. It costs $1.50.

Microsoft Word 2013 to have PDF editing

Office 2007 had an add-on to save files in PDF; and Office 2010 had it natively. Now, Neowin reports, that the upcoming Word 2013 will let you edit the PDFs too.

PDF editing is a feature that everyone felt was missing. Paul Thurrott’s site, WinSuperSite, claim that users will be able to skip Adobe’s own reader and Acrobat software to display PDFs, because Word 2013 will have a PDF reader too.

This new offering from Microsoft could change the way people interact with PDF. The format is particularly difficult to handle, for it is usually used for reading and not editing. Because eBooks can be read in readers such as Amazon’s Kindle, the editing functionality can bring about possibilities that users have yearned for many years in terms of having home-made books. Additionally, some book layouts can be changed to suit eInk displays more effectively in the future with the additional functionality.

Mozilla to wave goodbye to Thunderbird development

If you think of the company Mozilla, the first thing that jumps to mind is their friendly web-browser, Firefox.

But ever heard of Thunderbird, the open source email program? While Mozilla mostly plugs Firefox, Thunderbird has been running alongside for a while now, giving users an alternative to email programs such as Outlook. Sadly though in a blog post published by Mitchell Baker, head of the Mozilla Foundation, the company announced that it would be moving the Thunderbird team into other projects, and that a final build of Thunderbird would be posted online, along with security updates and limited development from the community.

Much of Mozilla’s leadership â€" including that of the Thunderbird team â€" has come to the conclusion that on-going stability is the most important thing, and that continued innovation in Thunderbird is not a priority for Mozilla’s product efforts. As a result, the Thunderbird team has developed a plan that provides both stability for Thunderbird’s current state and allows the Thunderbird community to innovate if it chooses.”

While the move might upset some fans of Thunderbird, it’s an inevitable move in a world where most email user prefer to reply and access email on the go, rather than being tied down to a desktop email client. An email from Jb Piacentino, Thunderbird Managing Director, he confirms the move of Thunderbird’s development resources to other projects, and hopes that the community will take up the development challenge.

Yahoo, Facebook strike patent truce, ad alliance

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â€" Facebook and Yahoo have agreed to settle a months-long patent dispute, averting a potentially expensive battle over the technology running two of the Internet's most popular destinations.

In dropping the lawsuits, the companies agreed to license their patents to each other and form an advertising and content-sharing alliance that expands their existing partnership. Friday's settlement involves no exchange of money.

Now that the antagonism is dissolving into an accord that could benefit both companies, the hundreds of millions of Web surfers who use both Yahoo and Facebook should find even more common ground on the two services..

The advertising alliance could help Yahoo recover some of the revenue that it has been losing as marketers shift more of their spending to a larger and more engaged audience on Facebook's online social network. Facebook, in turn, gains the opportunity to show the ads tailored to fit the individual interests of its 900 million users in other heavily trafficked areas besides its own website.

The truce ends a conflict provoked by Yahoo's short-lived CEO, Scott Thompson, who was dumped from the job two months ago after misinformation on his official biography raised questions about his integrity.

Under Thompson, Yahoo filed the patent lawsuit in March, wielding it as a weapon against a company that Thompson believed had been prospering from the ideas of its older rival. The complaint alleged that Facebook infringed on 10 Yahoo patents covering Internet advertising, privacy controls and social networks. Yahoo Inc. later added two more patents to the lawsuit.

But Thompson's attack on Facebook Inc. quickly turned into a public-relations disaster. Much of the technology industry railed against Yahoo's tactics. Critics viewed the lawsuit as a financial shakedown by a desperate company whose well of innovation had run dry.

New York venture capitalist Fred Wilson summed up the enmity toward Yahoo in an acerbic blog post that ended with this denouement: "I am writing this in outrage at Yahoo. I used to care about that company for some reason. No more. They are dead to me. Dead and gone. I hate them now."

When Yahoo replaced Thompson in May with interim CEO Ross Levinsohn, it opened the door for the company to settle the dispute under a reshuffled board of directors. Six of Yahoo's 11 directors joined the board after the patent suit was filed.

Yahoo's legal assault had exposed Facebook's vulnerability to patent claims as it prepared to complete the biggest initial public offering of stock by an Internet company. Facebook insulated itself by buying 750 patents from IBM Corp. for an undisclosed amount and spending $550 million to acquire another 650 patents that one of its biggest shareholders, Microsoft Corp., had purchased from AOL Inc. Armed with its own arsenal of intellectual property, Facebook signaled that it wasn't backing down and filed its own patent infringement lawsuit against Yahoo in April.

With Thompson out, Levinsohn quickly began working on a deal with Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg. The two issued statements Friday praising each other for working toward an agreement.

Yahoo already had been tying many of its services and content to Facebook before the lawsuit was filed. Now the two companies plan to display ads on each other's sites, while Yahoo plans to feed even more of its coverage of major events to the social network.

Although it has been growing at a robust clip, Facebook is still trying to win over skeptical investors. Doubts about the company's revenue potential have weighed on Facebook's stock, which has remained well below its IPO price of $38. The stock gained 26 cents, or nearly 1 percent, to close Friday at $31.73.

Yahoo is trying to snap out of a long-running financial funk brought up by Facebook's success and Google Inc.'s dominance of Internet search and advertising.

Yahoo has gone through four fulltime CEOs in five years in the hopes of engineering a turnaround and sparking revenue growth. The foibles have depressed Yahoo's stock, frustrating shareholders still angry about a squandered opportunity to sell the entire company to Microsoft in May 2008 for $47.5 billion, or $33 per share.

The stock dipped 7 cents to close at $15.78 Friday.

The Facebook pact may have pushed Levinsohn closer to being anointed as Yahoo's permanent CEO. Jason Kilar, CEO of online TV service Hulu, had been under serious consideration for the top job at Yahoo, but Hulu said Friday that he had decided not to pursue the position. The statement was issued in response to several published reports citing unnamed people who described Kilar as Levinsohn's primary competition for the Yahoo post.

Bill Gates: “Steve Jobs deserves to be remembered”

Back in June, Malcolm Gladwell, a best selling author, quite naively (in my opinion) proclaimed that 50 years from now, the world remember Bill Gates for his charity work, but will forget who Steve Jobs was. In fact, he predicts a world where there will be statues of Bill Gates across the third world”.

But what does Bill Gates himself think of that claim? In an interview with PC Mag, Gates shared his opinion on the matter, once again strengthening the belief that despite his competitive blood, he always had, and still has, a great amount of respect for Steve Jobs and his work.

“Steve Jobs did phenomenal work, both when I partnered with him and when Microsoft competed with him, and that deserves to be remembered,” Gates said.

That’s an incredible statement to make, especially since Steve Jobs never showed any kindness towards Bill Gates and his work. He might have secretly shared the same level of respect, but Jobs never acknowledged it in public. In his official biography, Jobs even lashed out against Gates saying he was unimaginative” and ripped off other people’s ideas”, which is why he now comfortable in philanthropy than technology”.

Regardless, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs both played a huge role in shaping the technology industry and making it what it is today. While Gates brought practicality to personal computers with an intuitive, GUI-driven operating system with Windows, Steve Jobs revolutionized the music industry with the iPod and iTunes, and re-invented and re-introduced smartphones and tablet-PCs that are changing the way we are connecting to each other. To say that these achievements will be disregarded in the future is certainly naive. Bill Gates will probably still remain a mainstream name, but I really doubt Jobs contribution will be completely forgetten.

Windows Phone 8 to feature curved on-screen keyboard?

Ever struggled to text someone while burdened with shopping bags? Or how about trying to lock your front door while texting your boss that you’re going to be late? While some of us might have talented fingers that are adept at one-hand typing on a mobile phone, not all of us are that lucky.

So it was with much surprise that I picked up this image from, which shows a one-handed on-screen keyboard that Microsoft have apparently being designing.

The keyboard features a regular qwerty layout, but this time around several letters are grouped together, presumably for predictive typing – something that I haven’t seen on a phone since 2006. If implemented, it’s most likely that this updated keyboard will arrive in Windows Phone 8 rather than in the current lineup of Windows Phone devices. But here’s hoping that Microsoft will take pity on its fans and release the new keyboard as an update for current devices. That, or someone could kindly hack it for the masses.
