Lonnie Johnson’s having a good week. The former NASA engineer just won $US73 million in a royalties dispute with the toymaker Hasbro for inventing the Super Soaker, the coolest toy you ever had growing up. The lawsuit also covered royalties for Nerf which Johnson also masterminded because he is awesome.
Remember that time Chubby Checker wanted to sue HP over a penis-measuring WebOS app that was also called “Chubby Checker”? There’s more fun to come: ol’ Chubs just got the go-ahead to sue the pants off HP.
Because Florida was hastily attached to America to be the butt of her jokes, this latest piece of ridiculousness should come as no surprise: Florida might have accidentally banned all computers and smartphones.

At first sight, the two logos above look so similar that you might think they’re the same product. But are they? Nope. The image on the right is the logo for Google Glass, the futuristic glasses from Google that just arrived to the hands of the first lucky explorers. The image on the left, however, is the logo of a Los Angeles startup founded in 2008 that is now thinking about suing Google for copying its name, logo and typography.
Apple has agreed to pay out a weighty $US53 million to settle a lawsuit that saw the company accused of not correctly honouring warranties of iPhone and iPod Touches, reports Wired.

By now, you’ve almost surely heard at least some mention of the notorious “pink slime” that’s invading fast food and, by consequence, our children’s lunches.
Apple has announced that it’s to settle a class-action lawsuit about in-app purchases — that could have involved more than 23 million App Store users! — by bunging the affected parties free iTune credit.
You read that right. The Pirate Bay is the one doing the suing over copyright infringement this time. Even more hilariously, The Pirate Bay says it will sue CIAPC, an anti-piracy group, for copyright infringement. The Pirate Bay is completely serious! It has already asked the police to investigate the CIAPC for copying The Pirate Bay.
Dutch programmer Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer is suing Facebook over its ‘Like’ button. Companies get sued all the time! Why do we care? Well, aside from having an A+ name, van Der Meer is actually…dead. He passed away in 2004, just as Facebook was beginning to take over the world. Why is he suing now?
