Samsung has suffered mostly defeat in the courtroom lately in its patent battles against Apple, but a U.K. judge has given them one small victory on Monday -- even if it comes at the expense of being humiliated about how uncool their product is.
If you’re an iPhone 4 owner who was unhappy with Apple’s offer of a free bumper to resolve your “Antennagate” related woes, you’ll now be able to cash in on that despair thanks to a class action settlement -- but don’t fill your eyes with dollar signs just yet.
Women may glow and the men might plunder in the land down under, but they get awfully touchy when you release a 4G-enabled tablet in Australia, only to find out that it doesn’t actually work there -- and as usual, all signs point to the courtroom.
While it may not be on par with the defendant who won that big lawsuit with McDonald’s over their coffee being too hot, Apple is again faced with legal action, this time from an 83-year-old woman who walked into the glass door at a Long Island retail location.
In a matter of weeks, Proview has gone from a company few have ever heard of to positioning themselves as a underdog in their iPad trademark battle against Apple Inc. Can this techno David take on Goliath and come out unscathed with their most valuable asset still intact?
The tech press loves to paint Google as an enemy of Apple (and sometimes, vice versa), but a new lawsuit may bring the two technology titans together again -- as defendants against a company claiming the search giant’s Street View technology infringes on their existing patent.
Oh, that whacky Proview! They truly are the new Psystar, the scrappy underdog who took on Apple over being able to use Mac OS X in their clone hardware. Not content to fight Apple’s iPad trademark claims in China, Proview has now brought the drama to California, filing a lawsuit on the tablet maker’s home turf.
Anyone remember Psystar, the Mac clone maker who dared to defy Apple and was ultimately snuffed out as a result? This business with Proview over the Chinese trademark for the iPad name is beginning to feel a little bit like more of the same, with the recently bankrupt display maker squaring off with Apple in court this week.
As if Apple doesn’t have enough trouble in China with the spotlight being thrown on Foxconn and other manufacturers, a lower Chinese court has now ruled that the company’s iPad should be pulled from shelves over an ongoing trademark dispute with a display company there.
If they rewrote the movie Mean Girls for tech, you can bet that Apple would be the three mean girls and Samsung would be Lindsay Lohan's character. This week, Samsung scored a rare victory against Apple in court, and may have saved Christmas for its Galaxy device in Australia with a little last minute holiday magic.
However, the victory is not yet official. Read on to find out what Apple might do to keep its Grinch on Down Under. Also, be sure check out the amazing infographic after the cut that lays out how all this Samsung vs. Apple cat-fight started in the first place. Cue the "dun dun."
