Facebook has found itself the subject of a lawsuit from a guy named Paul Ceglia who claims to own an 84% stake in the company. The Wall Street Journal reports that in 2009, New York’s Attorney General accused him of defrauding customers of his wood-pellet fuel company.

Of course this is not the first time Facebook has defended itself from claims about its origins. There have been books written about it (not to mention an upcoming film), but this one kind of came out of nowhere, and the guy’s claims to appear to fall in line with more well-known accounts of the company’s founding.

iPhone 4A lot of irritated iPhone 4 owners are calling for the company to issue a recall, and PR experts are calling one inevitable according to Cult of Mac. Kevin C. Tofel at GigaOm suggests they just hand out free cases to correct the problem. This uproar was amplified by Consumer Reports declining to recommend the buying of the device this week. According to various reports, Apple has been deleting threads talking about the subject from its message boards.

Microsoft made another handful of cloud-related announcements from its WorldWide Partner Conference today.

Amazon had a cloud-related announcement of its own as it introduced Cluster Compute Instances for EC2. These are described as a new instance type specifically designed for high-performance computing (HPC) applications and other demanding network-bound applications.

Microsoft launched its new Facebook integration for Outlook in the latest example of email and social media coming together in a single user experience.

    Because of the fast rising popularity of Facebook, claimers of ownership will really rise up and here is a good example. But people should really wake up into reality because it is not important who owns a big percentage in Facebook because we will not benefit from it knowing who owns a big part of it. The important thing is that the person who “really” owns a big part of Facebook should always see to it that there is a continuous improvement and start listening to customer complaints and requests. This article is great because now that people are going out the curtains and claiming that they own a big part of Facebook so that Facebook users will be able to know who’s to blame and who’s to approach when it comes to technical problems.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    It surprises me how ownership of such a big organization and such large percentage ownership (84%) for that matter, can be the subject of a dispute as that will clearly be clear cut given the level of documentation that will be required to prove such a claim.
