Round a few corners, a bit of nip-tuck and a tossed-on N. Oh, and probably just being sick and tired of the whole ordeal. We're assuming that's the recipe for getting the Cupertino-sourced gorilla off of Samsung's back, as a judge at the district court in Düsseldorf, Germany just issued a preliminary ruling that effectively clears the Galaxy Tab 10.
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.
Samsung just recently launched the hulking Galaxy TabPro S which, despite the "Galaxy" branding, is actually a Windows tablet. Those from the Android camp might be hungry for a new premium slate but, sadly, that might not yet be happening soon. Up in line would be a new Galaxy Tab S3 generation but what we're seeing instead is a new batch of Galaxy Tab S2 tablets.
Prison phone companies todaywere granted a judicial stay that halts implementation of new, lower rate caps on inmate calls. The court did not halt new limits on certain ancillary fees related to inmate calls, though, so the overall price of prison callingshould go down.
The Supreme Court on Monday questioned the rationale behind a Massachusetts law barring stun guns. In an unsigned order, the eight-member court ruled that the Second Amendment and the high court's precedent on the topic were enough to question the legal reasoning behind the top court of Massachusetts backing the prosecution of a woman that they said unlawfully possessed the electric weapon for.
The US Supreme Court is letting stand a lower court ruling that the Batmobile is protected by copyright. The high court's move is a blow to Gotham Garage , the maker of Batmobile replica modification kits, and it means car tinkerers must get a license from DC Comics to sell vehicles that look like the one driven by Batman and Robin.
It would appear that Samsung's schedule for releasing Galaxy phones will once again match up - sort of - with Apple's iPhone. Not just because both devices generally appear ready for the market at around the same time of the year - Autumn. Also because Apple is said to be seeking out OLED panels this time around - at least for a phone with a 5.
A Florida appeals court has upheld a $350,000 (240,000) damages award to a divorce attorney whose client posted defamatory reviews about the lawyer on Yelp and online legal site Avvo . The divorcing couple, Copia Blake and Peter Birzon, strangely teamed up to write the reviews about the wife's attorney, Ann-Marie Giustibelli, according to the appellate opinion.
It seems that Samsung has been busy with more than just figuring out how to get the S Pen unstuck when pushed in the opposite way. A USPTO filing, made in the third quarter last year, reveals one idea to turn that stylus into more than just an input stick. Because, after all, you won't be using it to watch a movie.
If the consequences weren't so dire, the developments it the case of the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone are almost too comical to be real. The matter, however, is very serious, both for those whose lives were lost and affected in last year's shootings as well as for the future of mobile device legislation.
A judge in New York ruled Monday in favor of Apple in a case where investigators wanted the court to compel the company to unlock a seized iPhone 5S running iOS 7, which the company does have the ability to unlock. This case involves a drug dealer who has already pleaded guilty.
Today we're rounding up all the details regarding Apple's legal battle with the FBI over iPhone encryption. This includes the one-sentence filing made by attorneys representing Apple this week notifying the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California that their clients "formally object" to an order to break in to an encrypted iPhone. Today we make it simple.
Apple makesa killer phone, the most popular tablet in the world, and a line of standard-setting laptops. Samsung also makes a killer phone, a less popular line of tablets, and some pretty alright laptops. Here's Samsung's latest phone, the Galaxy S7: It can do some pretty amazing things that the iPhone 6S can't do : go underwater, charge wirelessly, add extra storage (via microSD).
The Samsung Galaxy S6 for AT&T is just the latest in a line of Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates to the Galaxy smartphone line. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been updated in basically all iterations - as well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. All of the Samsung Galaxy S and Note smartphones released in the past could of years should be getting updates to Android 6.
Tell me if this sounds familiar: Apple, looking to broaden its appeal, takes an existing high-end device and squeezes its important bits into a smaller, familiar-looking body. That was the case with the iPhone SE, and at first glance, that appears to be true of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro as well; it seems like last year's iPad Pro in the body of an iPad Air 2.
The rollout comes after a successful trial last year. It falls under McDonald's' "Experience of the Future" initiative, which is designed to increase footfall in its restaurants as the company looks to overturn falling sales.
As expected, federal prosecutors in an iPhone unlocking case in New York have now asked a more senior judge, known as a district judge, to countermand a magistrate judge who ruled in Apple’s favor last week. Last week, US Magistrate Judge James Orenstein concluded that what the government was asking for went too far.
You know what they say about being over until a certain lady sings. Samsung and Apple may have agreed to no longer sue each other over patents and Samsung may have "somewhat" agreed to pay Apple $548 million in damages from its 2012 patent tussle with Apple, but the case is really far, far from being over.
The good news? It's at least willing to tweak more of those requests. FISC changed 80 surveillance applications in 2015, or four times as many as it did in 2014. It's at least giving serious thought to those demands before approving them. The problem, as you might guess, is that the court's secretive nature makes it impossible to verify that behavior.
