Google asked a judge at the International Trade Commission to prevent key Microsoft witness Dr. Robert Stevenson from testifying in a case against Motorola.  Microsoft has alleged that portions of Android-fueled Motorola phones are in violation of Microsoft patents.

The reason? Google has stated Microsoft revealed "highly confidential source code" they had requested from Google in a subpoena in April. Google said in its motion for sanctions they should have been permitted to review Dr. Stevenson's credentials, and should have been allowed to object to using him as a witness.

It was also noted in the sanctions that Dr. Stevenson has worked as a consultant for Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard, two Google competitors. A response from Microsoft is due August 15th.

PouchDB is an project focused towards the creation of a full JavaScript implementation of the CouchDB storage and views API to allow peer-to-peer replication with other CouchDB instances.

Here's some further explanation via the PouchDB GitHub "README" file:

 

Unlike the other current couch-like browser APIs built on WebStorage (http://dev.w3.org/html5/webstorage/) PouchDB's goal is to maintain the same kinds of consistency guarantees Apache CouchDB provides across concurrent connections across the multiple-tabs a user might be using to concurrently access an PouchDB database. This is something that just isn't possible with the BrowserStorage API previous libraries like BrowserCouch and lawnchair use.
