Patent-holding com nay VirnetX has been awarded almost US$440M in a long running patent dispute with Apple. A Federal Court judge in the Eastern District of Texas ordered the payment because of infringements relating to FaceTime and VPN on Demand. This is Apple's third loss in the matter, having lost and then won on appeal in previous cases. The four patents being disputed were purchased by VirnetX who have also had a crack at extracting cash from Microsoft and Cisco.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
