In a move that surprised virtually no one in the tech community, Korean electronics giant Samsung has lobbed a countersuit right back at Apple, claiming Cupertino has infringed on 10 of their own patents involving power reduction, 3G technology and wireless data communication.
On Thursday morning, we reported that President Barack Obama was coming to San Francisco for a technology shindig with the CEOs of a number of companies, including Apple’s Steve Jobs -- and the CEO reportedly attended, despite currently being on medical leave from the company.
Apple's been a front runner of technology since the company's inception. From the desktop computer mouse, to the initial adoption of USB as an input, Apple's been speedy about adopting technology before its prime. The Cupertino-based computer giant has also birthed some of its own proprietary technology like FireWire and the Mini Display Port, and while it's a pain for those of us that are cross platform, it does make it easy when it comes to purchasing peripherals. Unfortunately, Apple has yet to follow suit in its perceived reluctance to adopt USB 3.0, but it turns out that there's actually a pretty good reason for that and it might have something to do with a very speedy piece of next-generation technology.
Wall Street Journal technology journalist Walt Mossberg has chimed in with his best and worst picks for 2010, with Apple’s iPad topping the list as best, with the Dell Streak and Google TV at the opposite end of the scale.
If you happen to even casually follow Apple’s various patent filings, you probably already know that the cooks in Cupertino’s labs are already planning to implement near field communication (RFC) technology into a future iPhone, enabling wireless payments and other possibilities yet to come. A new report finds that one of those possibilities may include remote computing.
Your next iPad or iPhone may be incredibly powerful and energy efficient. Texas Instruments and ARM have joined forces to collaborate on the next generation of ARM Cortex A-series processors--code named Eagle. Though both companies are keeping their lips sealed about the inner workings of the chip, the two hope that they can raise the bar for the next iteration of mobile processors.
One of the best features of the Mac is that there are tons of accessibility features for individuals with visual impairments and hearing impairments. Fortunately, Apple has moved some of its accessibility technologies over to the iPhone 4. Namely, Braille Display support.
Some seriously cutting-edge tech is cresting the horizon, ready to take your Apple devices and other gear to the next level of awesome. We’ve searched out the breakthroughs on the verge of becoming reality to discover how Macs, iDevices, and other tech are about to become even more impressive.
