Opera grasps at straws with latest IE criticism

I was not a fan of Opera Software's antitrust sabre-rattling a few months back over Microsoft's lack of standards compliancy with its browser. But Opera's latest complaints about Internet Explorer (IE) 8 make Opera look even more like a company that's gone off the deep end.

MobileTechRoundup show #128, CTIA, S60 gaming, ULCPC, and WM 6.1

I was all excited about Sprint's XOHM WiMax after talking with Sprint at CES, but as you can hear from James and Kevin in MobileTechRoundup show #128 they were right to predict that rollout may be coming later than originally stated. We also talked about the excellent new, and free, Opera Mini 4.1 beta that is available for any Java-enabled mobile device. There was confirmation of rumors at CTIA this past week and we talked a bit about Windows Mobile 6.1 and the new IE Mobile application. I had to throw in some S60 news too and talked about the new Astraware game and N-Gage 2 releases. Velocity Mobile and their two new sweet devices was another topic of conversationg. Windows XP also looks like it may be around for a couple of more years, but only if you buy a ULCPC (listen to the show to hear what that stands for). We closed with a teaser about a product we plan to discuss in our next show that James is currently testing.

Opera brings action against M$ in Europe

Opera has registered a complaint against Microsoft with the European Commission, claiming Redmond illegally ties IE to Windows and is "hindering interoperability by not following accepted Web standards," Reuters reported."By tying its Internet Explorer product to its monopoly Windows operating system and refusing to faithfully implement industry accepted open standards, Microsoft deprives consumers of a real choice in Internet browsers," ECIS lawyer Thomas Vinje said in the statement.

So it's about time I started writing about Opera more, because I've been impressed by their durability in a very tough market.
