The annual Macromedia conference has undergone both a name and location change this year. One key thing remains the same, though and that's the overall level and excitement of Macromedia's development community.

Motorola and Nokia File a $3-billion Lawsuit Against Telsim

On a recent business trip to Istanbul, I arrived to wall-to-wall coverage of the Telsim controversy. Motorola and Nokia have filed a $3-billion lawsuit against Telsim, the second leading wireless provider in Turkey, alleging that Turkey's Uzan family borrowed all of that money with no intention of ever paying it back, in violation of the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations statute. Telsim is currently denying these charges, and we're following the case at wbt2.com. Heading back on the 11-hour flight to New York, I spent my time catching up on all of the latest wir... (more)
