Top three mobile application threats

Are you ready for the big fight this weekend? No, not the Lewis vs. Grant boxing match, the DoJ handing presenting its recommendations on what to do with Microsoft to Judge Jackson. We are, and when the bell rings, our Graham's coming out of his corner with his fists of fury ready to fight the good fight. But it looks like we might not have it all our own way. Thanks to the wonders of email and one of the most amusing PR gaffes we've encountered in a long while, we've learned (along with the rest of the UK media, who have been mysteriously quiet about this) that the Great Satan of Software and it's myriad spin doctors are on full alert to tackle press coverage of the expected DoJ announcements over the weekend. The two-page document (the second page of which is labelled "Page 2 of 1") gives a breakdown of what requests to expect from the press and who will be on hand to deal with them. The timetable of legal activities is expected to be as follows: today - DoJ to submit remedy to the court; 10 May - MS responds; 17 May – DoJ's turn to response; 24 May – the hearing in front of Judge Jackson. All of which means that no matter what the DoJ comes out with later today, don't expect to hear much of a response from Microsoft until it presents its response on 10 May. Looks like the boxing might be more interesting after all. ®
