If we told you there were patents galore in this week's news, would that surprise you? Well, what if we told you iLife everywhere, Facebook and the BBC on the iPad, and a new king of the smartphone manufacturing world? Well, there's that and there's more in this week's hottest Apple news. Just make sure you don't burn before reading.
Despite all of the bleak news about Android’s explosive growth over iOS, Apple has risen to the top of the world’s smartphone market, bumping longtime champ Nokia to third place and barely edging out Samsung, according to newly released data.
In this game of thrones, it is as much about Apple winning as it is about Nokia losing. Just two days after Apple released their staggering sales and revenue numbers over the last three months, Nokia announced massive losses for the same time period.
This shifting of fortunes for both companies has dethroned Nokia as the leading cell phone manufacturer, and crowned Apple as high king. For now.
A week's worth of news, but just the highlight reel. That's what we promise here and that's what we deliver, so strap on your seatbelts, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times, and let's get our hustle on as we blaze through the week's hawtest Apple news.
Well, would you look at that: Those big kids in the mobile phone playground can play nice together after all, especially when cash money is in play.

No Katy Perry this week, but the last few days weren't bereft of hot news stories involving everyone's favorite computer and phone maker and post-PC device thingie maker as patents played a big roll plus a little bad news for one of Apple's competitors. Get out your wallet, Sergey!
After having its patent case against Apple thrown out back in March, cell phone giant Nokia is back for more, having been granted a partial review of two of their five patent claims with the U.S. International Trade Commission.
It was only last week -- Friday to be exact -- when the U.S. International Trade Commission ruled against Finnish cell phone giant Nokia in its epic patent battle with Apple. Now, like a bad penny, the Finns are back for another round.
Steve Jobs is a very powerful man. With a single word, he has been known to lay waste to inferior products and technologies.
Okay, maybe that's not true. Look at Windows, it's been around for ages and Steve hasn't exactly been quiet about how much better the Mac OS is to Windows. Still, that hasn't stopped people from blaming Jobs for the demise of, well, just about anything.
