Hot on the heals of my post yesterday about Mandalay Media's earnings, Mobile Entertainment revealed today that the company (through a subsidiary of its Twistbox brand) is an intensifying legal dispute with long-suffering former porn-powerhouse Penthouse over the payment of a minimum guarantee & product promotion. I would call this worrisome in light of Mandalay's reliance on premium adult content and their cash situation.

The Register is reporting that Scottish mobile file-rendering innovator Picsel Technologies may be kaput. If it's true, sad to see them go...good guys with good technology. Unfortunately, this is another mobile company that had a hard time figuring out who their customer was...carriers, handset manufacturers, IP owners? btw...that all said, gotta have a chuckle at the URL on The Register link, check it out.
