When you have as much money and power as a company like Apple you can do just about anything and that includes making up your own dimensions, as a new Apple patent for 5D technology clearly shows. What is this mystical new 5th dimension that Apple discovered? It's actually just a marketing gimmick, and is actually a set of unique TV, gaming and motion-based applications that they apparently decided would be deemed “5D Technology”.
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.
A new court decision will require that Apple address the findings of the July 9th London court decision, which basically states that Samsung Galaxy tablets don't infringe on Apple's registered designs.

What if the iPhone were semi-permanently attached to your hand in some weird twist of bio-electronic engineering? We're getting closer to that reality with the so-called iPhone 5 Spider concept.
Here we go again. Rumors of a smaller Apple iPad have been around for as long as the iPad itself, but with the arrival of the Google Nexus 7, a so-called iPad Mini could really see the light of day.
According to iFixit, there is one clear advantage to the Nexus 7's design versus the iPad- it's extra space inside makes it much easier to repair.
According to TechCrunch, the new smaller 19-pin Apple port has been independently verified. While the form factor and actual size are still yet to be revealed, it seems that there may be some truth behind the rumors of a smaller port after all. The new Apple 19-pin iDevice port seems similar to what we already have on many MacBooks with the Thunderbolt port, but TechCrunch says that three independent manufacturers have said that this new Apple port is in fact different.
And you don't have to tell Tim Cook about the Surface, because it's surely caught his attention too... as well as the attention of Apple's legal team.
No pre-production Galaxy III was mistakenly left behind at a bar one night and that's because Samsung took several measured steps to keep their secret project as secret as possible.
One of the many changes that you'll find in iOS 6 is the departure away from Google Maps and toward Apple's own Maps app...
No longer content with letting Google control the mapping world with Google Maps, Apple announced it was diving in with its own solution. Taking a closer look at the new map system, Apple Maps has Apple doing all the cartography itself, has turn-by-turn navigation in iOS 6 with narration from SIRI and also has full integration with Yelp.
The 15.4-inch display rocks an incredible resolution of 2880x1800 pixels, giving you 220ppi.
Apple's WWDC 2012 kicked off today with the keynote and one of the big announcements was the unveiling of "the world's most advanced mobile operating system." So, what's new with iOS 6?
That's why Apple moved to the micro-SIM for its current line of iPhones, but even that isn't small enough. Now, the nano-SIM has been confirmed and it's 40% smaller than the micro-SIM.
The iPod (and iTunes) shook up the way that we listen to music. And now it looks like Apple is going to tackle the world of digital photography.
It seems that an new iOS 5.1.1 error message has shown up that leads the tech world to speculate that Apple is considering implementing FaceTime support over the 3G.
We've all encountered this problem. You want to plug in your iPhone to charge, but it's dark and you can't see the port. The CordLite fixes that
About a year ago, a judge ruled that HTC was in violation of an Apple patent due to just how closely their “tap system” works in comparison to Apple's. With this system, you click on a number, text message, or whatever and it gives you a choice of what to do. After the ruling, HTC vowed to make a tweak that would get around this infringement in future Android devices.
People thought Apple was crazy when it entered the mobile phone market with the iPhone, but look at where we are now. People are saying the same thing about Apple getting into TVs, but we've got reason to believe an Apple HDTV is very real and very much on the way.
It turns out that we're wrong and the newer batch of iPad 2 tablets is actually an improvement over the original iPad 2.
As great and as versatile as touchscreen displays may be, they don't offer the same kind of tactile experience as physical buttons. We've seen haptic feedback solutions before, but nothing quite like what this Apple patent seems to be depicting.
Another day, another iPhone rumor, and another iPhone concept. While it doesn't look like the boys and girls in Cupertino have quite figured out how to make a T-1000 just yet, it looks like French designer Antoine Brieux is applying some liquid metal to his latest iPhone concept.
As far as we can gather, Apple isn't going to launch the next iteration in the iPhone series until some time this fall, but that hasn't stopped designer Antonio De Rosa from dreaming up what he calls the iPhone Plus.
After three months of negotiating, tweaking and pushing Apple, Sparkling Apps finally has their Siri-alternative, Voice Answer, out onto the market.
After getting all sorts of stark denials out of Cupertino, it has now been officially confirmed by Philippe Starck himself that he isn't working on a new Apple product at all.
Phillipe Starck is an esteemed French designer, having designed everything from toothbrushes to motorcycles, but he has apparently been working closely with Apple on a brand new product. And that brand new product will be revealed to the world within the next eight months.
You would think that a lawsuit like this might come from a direct competitor, but that's not the case. Instead, the antitrust lawsuit is being filed by the United States government, naming Apple and several book publishers as the defendants.
Recently, the training materials for the California District Attorneys Association found there way online, and as a result there has been a lot of worry that Apple might have a way around pass-codes altogether.
Oh, look at that Retina display! Oh, look at those quad-core graphics! Oh, look at that... what? Why isn't my Wi-Fi working? Yup, apparently there have been "many" new iPad owners who have been complaining about Wi-Fi issues, Apple has very much recognized the pressing problem and are out to fix it.
Ever since the new iPad was released there seems to be a plethora of issues that owners have been complaining about, such as potential overheating issues and even an alleged charging problem. Just like with the heating issue though, Apple's official response is that there is nothing wrong.
The war over a standard for nano-SIM is now in full swing as Apple is trying harder than ever to get its new standard accepted over the rival design from Nokia, Motorola and RIM.
Apple started the whole "Retina Display" craze with the iPhone 4. Then, it made Retina Displays even bigger with the new iPad. Now, it looks like there's no turning back and Apple is well on its way to integrating Retina Display technology in this year's MacBook refresh too.
The new iPad from Apple has been available in places like Canada and the United States for a little while, but now more international customers can get their hands on the latest too. The expansion is substantial and will likely build on the momentum already brought on by the launch in the first set of countries.
The new iPad offers plenty of exciting improvements such as the retina display and a faster processor, but nothing everything about the newest model is for the better. One such issue that seems to plague the device has to do with overheating.
No, it's not quite the same as having Siri, but the Dictation feature in the new iPad is still there for some of your voice recognition needs, but it turns out that it could also turn into an invasion of privacy. This is partly conjecture, to be fair, but it is still something worth noting.
When the new iPad was revealed to the world, Apple told us that the new A5X chip spanked the Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. But those are just claims. How does the comparison stack up when you put them under real benchmarks and real world experiences?
If Steve Jobs were still alive today, I don't think this would happen. He had publicly stated that he had no interest in 7-inch tablets, but it looks like the Cupertino company he left behind is moving ahead with a so-called iPad mini.
As the war between iOS and Android rages on, it looks like Apple is slowly but surely moving away from Google services. The latest stab comes in the form of Apple abandoning Google Maps for the map-based features in the newest version of iPhoto.
We all know about that big Apple event earlier today and how it was the place where the new iPad was unveiled to the world, but there was at least one other major product reveal: the new Apple TV. While the set-top box itself is still the same inconspicuous rounded black square, its guts have been upgraded and the UI has completely changed.
As the invite let us know, today was the big day. Apple hosted a special event in San Francisco this morning to unveil the new iPad to the world. Interestingly enough, it is not the iPad 2S, the iPad HD, or even the iPad 3 that we had expected. It's simply the new iPad. I guess they've decided to take the iPod approach to product names moving forward, rather than the iPhone style of naming models.
Most people know about Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, but have you heard of Regis McKenna? McKenna was the mastermind behind the famous 1984 television commercial for Apple and he was the first ad and public relations guy. Looking back, he has some choice words to say.
While just a day ago we heard about the possibility of a new 8GB iPad 2, now it seems that according to parts listings from Griffin and Belkin, the next iPad might actually be called the iPad HD.
Apple appears to be deeply concerned about losing ownership of the iPad trademark in China and might be thinking about a Plan B. The company reportedly is eyeing the EPAD trademark which is currently being used by a Chinese vendor on their products.
We pretty much already knew that Apple was going to reveal the new iPad 3 next month, but now we can see official confirmation in the way of a special invitation to a special Apple event on March 7. But the invitation sent out seems to be showing something a little extra...
In order to get their hands on the iPad trademark, Apple allegedly hired Farncombe International and its managing director, Graham Robinson. Robinson, the real life Hunt, created a company by the name IP Application Development Limited ("IPAD Ltd."). After adopting a false alias, Jonathan Hargreaves (the name’s Hargreaves...), Robinson contacted Proview for opening talks on the iPad name.
The lines are blurring, of course, thanks to apps like Flickr Mobile, Instagram, and so on. That trend is continuing with the release of Adobe Photoshop Touch for the Apple iPad 2.
While it is hard to find a voice assistant even close to being as stable and capable as Siri, there is one app that actually comes pretty close, and that's True Knowledge's Evi. While the device has been known for having server connection problems here and there, I can attest to the fact that at least the Android version is very good, when I can get it to connect the server properly.
In the world of technology making a device thinner is always perceived as an improvement. That is why all the manufacturers from around the world try to make their products as slim as possible. Apple is also following a similar path and appears to be planning thinner keyboards for bringing out thinner notebook computers.
