We're used to seeing the iPhone virtually everywhere here in the U.S., but despite its success all around the globe, Apple is falling behind in India, a key market poised to become the world's third largest this year.
Few would dispute that Apple has mastered the art of marketing its products, but one of the company's former ad men believe that Samsung may have effectively stolen that skill from Cupertino along with their product designs.
It's rare to hear one of Apple's partners speak publicly about the company, but it's rarely positive, especially when Cupertino's often draconian policies are being discussed. Imagine our surprise to hear a European carrier CEO describe Apple as much easier to get along with now! What's the reason behind the change? You'll have to read on to find out...
The debut of Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro this week continues to fuel the debate over what should be considered a "tablet" and what should be a "computer," with at least one research firm combining the two.

Now that the booths have been broken down, the awards have been handed out and the last bit of per diem has been fed into a slot machine at McCarran International Airport, there's a general sense that something was missing from CES.

OK, maybe not that much -- but it seems like every time we turn around there's commotion over Apple losing a patent, or suing another electronics maker for infringement. Today, the USPTO has overturned yet another Apple filing, the second in as many months.
