The Motley Fool comments on DigitalGlobe's (DGI) poor earnings, a loss of $.02 per share, and its resulting nose dive in stock price. It's most interesting comment was this: "Good PR doesn't trump bad profits." On Wednesday, May4, the market reacted to the company's quarterly report by sending the stock down from $28.72 to $25.82, a drop of 10% even though the report was within analyst's consensus estimates.

A judge in Suffolk Superior Court (Massachusetts) denied Google's request for a dismissal of, or summary judge on, a case against it by Boston-based Skyhook. Google hoped the suit would go away before it really started but the judge was not convinced. The suit alleges "Google used its relationships with handset manufacturers to muscle Skyhook’s GPS software out of the market."

A second set of  suits alleges Google infringed on Skyhook patents related to determining the location of devices via wi-fi signals. That was filed in Mass District Court and is pending.
