Oracle Chief Executive Officer Safra Catz put an Old Testament spin on her company's software copyright battle with Google as she told jurors about an encounter with her adversary's top lawyer at a bat mitzvah in 2012.Catz's testimony in San Francisco federal court was intended to buttress what Oracle claims was Google's brazen theft of Java code to build its Android operating system, and to begin to explain how that theft caused the database maker damages of $9.3 billion.Catz's message: Google undercut Oracle's licensing revenue by co-opting Java to develop Android into the operating system now used in 80 percent of the world's mobile devices.Google took a language designed to "write once, run anywhere" across different computing platforms and "forked," or split into two, Oracle's Java community of programmers, she said.AdvertisementGoogle lifted and employed the code so that it would only run on Android, leading smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics, ZTE., and Motorola to adopt that platform, which the search engine company offered for free, and to cease paying Java licensing fees to Oracle, Catz testified."They use Android instead of taking a copy of our software."

Allo is a messaging app that employs Google Assistant to help out users in their conversations.It can be used to find things quickly within a conversation, for example a restaurant when you re planning dinner.The app also offers Smart Reply, which suggests quick message responses based on the content and context of what s being discussed.View photosMore Google The app is based on a user s phone number, so it is not limited to those who choose to sign up or create an account on the platform before being able to use it.Google says the aim of Duo is to make video calling faster and more reliable, and again is based on a user s phone number, making contact with anyone in your contacts easier.As part of the central message of openness and accessibility, both apps will be available on both iOS and Android when they launch later in the summer.
Facebook s aggressive pursuit of video continues unabated, as the company is now testing video replies in the form of comments on a post.A bunch of users are now seeing a pop-up message above the camera icon on a Facebook comment box alerting them to the fact that they can now add videos.The same goes for if you wish to reply with an existing video stored on your device.Details for the desktop version are scarce at this early stage.pic.twitter.com/ZIeKJvQQPj— The Deli Agency @TheDeliAgency May 17, 2016At present, most users have the ability to post an image or text-based response on a comment thread underneath a post.Although Snapchat comparisons get thrown about a lot in regards to Facebook, the feature would no doubt bring it closer to the visual messaging app, which is generally built upon image and video exchanges.
Not content to simply allow you to respond to your friends posts with text chat or its recently launched Reactions which no one uses anyway , Facebook is devising a way to turn you into an emoji.Here s how it would work, according to the patent: When a user goes to enter a common emoji using its text-activated outline in a comment or message thread, Facebook will identify an image of the user that corresponds to the selected emoji an image of the person smiling in exchange for a smiley emoticon, for example .Facebook s personalized emoji process as illustrated in its patentThe patent will likely rely on Facebook s facial recognition software, which scans tagged photos for biometric data that can help it identify corresponding faces in other images.Despite legal action banning the auto-tagging system in parts of Europe and in Canada, it is still widely used in the U.S. on Facebook, and its Moments app.We re guessing it will be limited to smileys and other emotive face icons that can be customized to fit user images.Seeing as Facebook patented its Reactions feature almost two years prior to its release, we could be in for a bit of a wait before we can run rampant with our very own miniature icons.
