Tackhead writes: After almost a decade of legal wrangling, Samsung has settled with Rambus over the antitrust case (regarding allegations of price-fixing for DDR and SDRAM) that was scheduled to proceed this month. As part of the settlement, Samsung agrees to purchase $200M in Rambus stock, pays $200M in cash to Rambus, plus $25M per quarter for the next 5 years in licensing fees. No immediate word on the implications for Micron or Hynix.

women pregnant, you can get a baby a month.
