In with a bang, out with a whimper. After making us fear for the Xbox 360′s (shelf) life by delivering an adverse ruling in Motorola’s ITC patent infringement case against Microsoft last year, the presiding Administrative Law Judge reversed his stance a couple months ago after prodding by the full Commission.

We’ve since been proven wrong by Samsung’s Galaxy Mega 6.3 , but the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate has gone on sale first, and it’s every bit as intimidating as it was in January.
