One legal angle that has largely been overlooked is the Fifth Amendment.
Apple said Friday that it won't go to court to demand the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to inform the gadget maker how the feds broke into the phone of Syed Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people in a San Bernardino County office building in December.
Not content with taking on just the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Apple’s next battle is not over privacy issues once again, but this time they are taking on the Federal Circuit in the continuing patent case against Samsung.
SAN FRANCISCO—Development woes, legal battles, and little-known hacks: these are the cornerstones of the classic gaming post-mortem.

Some might call it poetic justice, but that might jumping the gun a bit too early. In a trial held at the East Texas Federal District Court, a notorious site for many patent lawsuits, a jury unanimously declared Apple guilty of infringing on "patent holder" VirnetX's patents in Apple's VPN on Demand feature as well as FaceTime and iMessage.
Reports that swear they're not April Fools' pranks claim China has banned April Fools' day, citing annoyance and incompatibility with the "western tradition."

Since playing Star Wars Galaxies all those years ago, whenever I hear the term "Combat Update" for a game, I get horrible flashbacks. However, not every developer messes up a game as soundly as SOE did. Today, Minecraft is getting its own Combat Update, and it looks fantastic.

It might be less than a fourth of the hefty sum it had to pay Apple last year, but even a $120 million reprieve is a big break for Samsung . But more than not having to pay that amount, the US Appeals Court ruled that Samsung didn't infringe on one of Apple's patents that Cupertino sued it for nearly 2 years ago.
