News Good afternoon John
Apple has kicked its intellectual property dispute with Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC up a notch. The company filed a new complaint against HTC with a U.S. trade panel over some of its portable electronic devices and software, according to the panel's website. Apple filed a similar action against the company last year and could be trying to strengthen the case against its rival by adding new patents to its claim this time around, notes AllThingD's John Paczkowski. "It's another broad warning to the industry," he writes."If you're bringing a new smartphone to market, you had better make damn sure it doesn't infringe on Apple's IP."

The first e-reader to fully integrate Google's eBooks platform into its design goes on sale exclusively at Target stores across the U.S. next weekend, Google said in a blog post. The iRiver Story HD lets users buy and read e-books from the service over Wi-Fi and store their personal collections in the cloud. Google offers more than 3 million free titles for download through its eBooks service, with hundreds of thousands more for sale.

LinkedIn, the online networking website aimed at professionals, surpassed Myspace in June to become the second-most popular social network in the United States, according to a new survey from comScore. Just how much more popular is LinkedIn now? According to the figures, LinkedIn had 33.9 million unique visitors in June, a jump of about a half a million from May. Myspace, on the other hand, saw its traffic decline to 33.5 million American visitors, a drop of about 1.4 million users from the previous month.

Apple, Microsoft, Research in Motion and three other leading tech companies received court approval to buy wireless patents from bankrupt Nortel Networks Corp for $4.5 billion. A total of 6,000 patents and applications were included in the sale and fetched three times what some analysts expected from the auction in June.
