"Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has filed a last-minute amendment to his patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, Facebook, Google and others, according to media reports. The amended suit targets Google's Android mobile operating system in a move that could spell trouble for phone manufacturers and app developers.

"The suit targets Internet giants AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google and its subsidiary YouTube, Netflix and Yahoo, and office supplies companies Office Depot, Officemax and Staples."
