Motorola’s history of using FRAND patents in lawsuits has drawn criticism and attention from the Federal Trade Commission already, and apparently it has also a formal investigation.Bloomberg reports that the FTC has sent Google a civil investigative demand as it pursues the question of whether or not Motorola is abusing the system by using standards patents in its disputes with Apple and Microsoft. Reportedly both Microsoft and Apple have received information requests from the FTC.In a statement to All Things,Google said that it would be “happy to answer any questions.”
The FTC has previously said that the import ban Motorola is seeking against the Xbox and iPhone would have “the potential to cause substantial harm to U.S. competition,consumers and innovation.”So while there’s no word on just how far the FTC is planning on taking this probe,the commission’s attitude towards Motorola’s (and now Google’s) actions seems fairly obvious:dubious.

Adobe was very public about dropping mobile Flash last fall.In case that wasn’t clear enough,the developer just drew a line in the sand:Android 4.1 doesn’t,and won’t ever,get certification for Flash.The company is stopping short of saying that Flash won’t run,but it’s evident that Adobe won’t help you if the web browser plugin doesn’t install(or breaks in spectacular fashion) on that Nexus 7.Just to underscore the point,the firm is also halting new installations of Flash from Google Play as of August 15th.Security updates and other vital patches will continue on for existing users.Any fresh downloads after that fateful day,however,will have to come from Adobe’s mausoleum for old versions.The company had already said that HTML5 was the way forward on phones and tablets–now we know just how quickly it’s backing up that claim.
