Microsoft’s latest commercial takes a humorous look at the Samsung-Apple war and weighs in with its own comment about switching to Windows Phone instead.
When Samsung lost its major legal battle to Apple, Mobile Magazine warned that the battle was far from over. There would be appeals, and likely future lawsuits. Since then, Apple has prepped a new lawsuit against Apple and now even Samsung has confirmed they are going to war with Apple over the iPhone 5.
With the Samsung versus Apple lawsuit over, at least until appeals, who truly won the battle? Some are saying that Microsoft is the big winner here. Why? There are a few reasons actually.
The Samsung and Apple continue to fight a constant global legal war against one another, with every little legal battle pushing the scale in on direction or the other, but largely seeming to go nowhere. Recently Apple won a bit of a victory with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7’s German ban extending its way to the entire EU.
All is fair in love and war. As part of efforts to get a bigger chunk of the MP3 player market, Samsung has hired the services of Paul Mercer. Yes, the same software designer that helped shape Apple’s iPod. The news is seen as a testament to how Samsung believes that consumer electronics now rely […]
Gone are the days when there was only one true giant in the musical streaming service category. Spotify dominated the scene, and if you look at the figures still continues to be. But when Apple music made its debut last year, Spotify suddenly had a worthy adversary. Apple began with a rocky start, but finally […]
It’s been quite some time since tablets first appeared. Although they didn’t really catch the hype in terms of sales, however, they are still being evolved and companies are investing their time and money in them so that they somewhat become an interesting device rather than just being stereotyped as a ‘super sized smartphone.’ The […]
News is something we come across daily and the way we get acquainted with the things happening around us has changed in a big way. Lives have become fast and nobody really has the time to go through newspapers until and unless it’s a weekend. This is the reason why big companies are betting on […]
For many years Samsung has been a dominant player in the smartphone market. Even though the Korean electronics conglomerate manufactured phones out of plastic which felt cheap to use, even then Samsung’s smartphone sales sky-rocketed making it the most profitable phone manufacturer. However, that dominant era was short-lived when new players emerged in the market. […]
The way we humans have been paying each other for goods and services has changed tremendously over the past few years. In fact, the way we have done transactions has had a deep impact on our lives. In the pre-historic or medieval period, we used to make use of barter system where we exchanged goods […]
It seems like Apple’s timeshare of staying at the top of China’s smartphone market was short lived. Research done at Canalys says that the local brand Xiaomi has again become country’s smartphone market leader. Reports also suggest that Xiaomi snagged 15.9 percent of the total shipments during this year’s second quarter. The story doesn’t finish […]
Almost a year ago, we heard that Apple is planning to launch their in-house Television sets! Keeping aside all the rumors and self-proclaimed perceptions, a latest research presented by Wall Street Journal has nullified the news about Apple’s planning to build or sell TV sets. Brace yourself and get ready to accept the news- […]

Apple Watch: Latest Information on Release Date, Price and Features (And Two Things to Watch Out For)
Apple products, the reality is, we all love them, well almost all. Regardless of your opinion about them, there is no question that Apple fans are by far the most crazy, loyal, passionate promoters for their products in the technology industry. And, while Apple may be considered one of the best American products, these “one […]
The current rumors point toward a Q1 2014 release of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone, but what new toys and features will Samsung bring to the table? For starters, it might start scanning your eyes for security reasons.
Intel has reportedly been working on a web-based television service for over a year now, and is now believed to be looking into working with partners such as Samsung or Amazon.
A new rumor is suggesting that Apple is thinking about iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch screens, and also a cheap iPhone which will reportedly cost only $99.
A newly discovered USPTO patent indicates Apple is preparing eye-tracking technology of its own.
After holding the crown for so long, Apple is now slipping in the tablet market, while Samsung, Asus, Amazon and other Android tablet makers catch up.
According to the IDC, sales of smartphones have surpassed that of feature phones in Q1. Samsung is having the highest market share, followed by Apple, LG, Huawei and ZTE.
Samsung has been talking about flexible display technology for years now, but if they don’t watch out, it could be LG that beats them to the market.
Apple has launched another half hearted attack at the Samsung and their new Galaxy S4. Apple claims iPhone is still the world’s best smartphone.
With the Samsung Galaxy S4 being officially announced later today, Apple’s Phil Schiller is already taking shots at the upcoming Android device.
For the last five years Samsung has held strong as the number one mobile phone vendor in the United States, but in Q4 Apple stole the show with great sales.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is just about the hottest phone on the market today. Whether you’re an Apple fanboy or Steve Ballmer, 30 million Galaxy S IIIs is a lot to swallow. With so much surrounding Samsung in 2012 and even more to come in 2013, the mobile world is starting to focus on […]
In the most recent Apple vs. Samsung debacle, Apple’s Notification Center is the hot topic. More specifically, Korean News site iNews24 reports that “Samsung Electronics has brought a lawsuit against Apple in a court in South Korea over its ‘Notification Center’ patent infringement.”.
While the international version of the Galaxy S3 has had Jelly Bean for about three months, the same can’t be said for the United States. It took quite a bit longer in the States, but now every major carrier has Jelly Bean– Except Verizon. The good news is that the Jelly Bean rolls out to the Verizon network starting today.
There has never been a greater time to buy a smartphone I’d wager. From Nokia to Samsung to Apple and even (surprisingly) LG– there is lot to love. When it comes to iconic smartphone leaders though, we still often hear the names Samsung and Apple come up.
In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Schmidt essentially declared it is the winner of the mobile war against Apple.
Could future iPhone and iPad devices be powered by chips built by Intel? A new rumors seems to suggest so. With Samsung and Apple’s relationship becoming so distant, it is possible Intel could extend beyond providing Intel processors for Apple’s PC efforts.
With the patent wars still going strong, tensions are high in technology land. Just two months after Apple walked away from the courtroom a billion dollars richer, the Silicon Valley giant is trying to further distance itself from Samsung.
The surprising thing is that even though the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ starts at a full $200 cheaper than the starting price for the Apple iPad ($299 vs. $499), the specs on paper are actually very, very comparable.
When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don’t have the display power of the Retina and probably aren’t as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.
While Apple might have given us a new iPad 4th gen recently, it is no longer the king of displays. Today Google announced the Samsung Nexus 10 with an extremely impressive 2560 x 1600 display.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S3 hasn’t even been on the market for six months yet, it seems the first rumors regarding the Galaxy S4 are starting to already surface.
The 2012 Apple versus Samsung trial in California might be over, but the war is far from ended. Apple has already filed suit against Samsung covering at least 21 newer smartphones, media players, and tablets releases from August 2011 all the way to August 2012.
But Apple being what it is would rather do this over a proprietary standard and that’s where AirPlay Direct seems to be coming into the picture, bypassing standard Wi-Fi altogether.
What happens when you playfully send a picture of a dragon to Samsung of Canada? You get a free custom phone, that’s what.
Quite a bit after when we first expected the verdict, the Samsung versus Apple case in South Korea has come to an end. While we still don’t know the outcome of the Californian chapter of the battle, we do now know that both Apple and Samsung didn’t get away without some kind of a minor victory, and minor defeat.
When it truly came down to who was winning though, it was always hard to clearly say one side or the other. Recently though, Apple has managed to find what some critics believe is the “smoking gun” needed to swing the case in their favor for good- an internal memo that recognizes that Samsung needs to copy the iPhone.
Samsung’s secret weapon in turning the tide of this war has been information and evidence that strongly suggests Apple itself somewhat copied or was directly inspired by Sony-style designs. Samsung hoped to use this information to discredit Apple’s own claims, but it turns out that this weapon was a total dud.
The Apple and Samsung war over Samsung’s alleged patent infringement has revealed to us a great many things such as iPhone prototypes, internal company memos and now even information about two possible upcoming Samsung Windows 8 Phones, “Odyssey” and “Marco”.
Every day a new chapter unfolds in the legal battles between Apple and Samsung. The latest news regarding their global war has to do with a federal judge in California sanctioning Samsung for destroying email evidence that could have been used in the patent case with Apple.
The Samsung-Apple patent wars continue to push on at full swing revealing all sorts of dirt including Samsung ignoring Google’s warnings that their designs were too close to Apple, and internal memos that show that even the iPhone was actually influenced by earlier Sony-style designs. This war doesn’t seem to be slowing down and no real victor seems in sight, but at least all these court discoveries and findings are kicking up interesting prototype/mockups that help us see the clear evolution that took place as Apple designed its various iOS-based products.
A set of documents have leaked out that Apple plans to use in court, in which Google warned Samsung that the design for the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 10.1 were too similar and even famous designers apparently cautioned Samsung that the Galaxy S looked too much like the iPhone because of its shape and overall design elements.
