Apple vs SamsungThe on again, off again brawl between the two most popular brands of smartphone – and tablets – is on again!

Apple has asked a federal judge to bar US sales of Samsung smartphones and tablet computers in the blockbuster patent case involving the two electronics giants.

In a court filing in California, Apple said the smartphones and tablets were found to have violated patents in a jury trial held last year.

Apple renewed its bid for a permanent injunction on sales of a number of Samsung products after an appeals court decision last month cleared the way for a new hearing on the matter.

In the latest filing dated Thursday, Apple’s attorneys wrote that the court “previously concluded that Samsung’s sale of infringing products has irreparably harmed Apple.” :: Read the full article »»»»

Apple vs Samsung vs Apple vs Samsung

UPDATED! August 28, 2012: Apple is seeking speedy bans on the sale of eight Samsung phones, moving swiftly to capitalise on its resounding court victory over its arch-foe. The world’s most valuable company wasted no time in identifying its targets: eight older-model smartphones, including the Galaxy S II and Droid Charge.

Original Post! Just hours apart, in two separate courts – one in the USA and another in South Korea – two absolutely opposing views on the war that is Apple vs Samsung, – or should that be Samsung vs Apple? – have been handed down.

A South Korean court has handed down a split ruling over Samsungs claim that Apple infringed it’s intellectual property, ruling that some element of the iPhone do indeed use patented Samsung telecommunication technology. The court also ruled however that Samsung had – as Apple has been ranting – copy Apples interface for it’s early Galaxy phones and tabs.

The South Korean court found that both companies shared blame, ordering Samsung to stop selling 10 products including its Galaxy S II phone and banning Apple from selling four different products, including its iPhone 4.

Meanwhile across the pacific in San Jose, California, a US jury has found in favour of Apple in a case that was expected to take years to settle, Apples copycat rant has just landed it a $US1 billion dollar win! However, the US ruling runs much deeper than just a huge compensation payout, BILLIONS of dollars in future sales hang in the balance for both tech-behemoths :: Read the full article »»»»

In the war that has been Apple vs Samsung, the latter has won what could be the final slap-down.

Apple vs Samsung: Samsungs Henko Move

Samsung has won the right to sell its Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Australia after the Federal Court overturned a ban on the sale of the computer. Last month, the court slapped a temporary injunction on sales of the Galaxy 10.1 after rival Apple said the Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones was too similar to its iPad and iPhone.

Apple vs Samsung: A Galaxy of Litigation

Samsung Sumo AppleWe missed out on the Cretaceous Period, got our start in the Devonian Period,  woke up to ourselves in the Pliocene and have been running straight toward the Litigious Period. As megaliths and behemoths battle it out over who owns what patent, and which gadget belongs to who, the consumer is likely to be the victim in what looks to be a long and fierce battle. There seems to be the distinct possibility that more products will be blocked from sale. Samsung says its mammoth tit-for-tat patent battle with Apple could have been avoided if the latter wasn’t so trigger happy, as the Korean giant’s attempt to ban sales of Apple’s iPhone 4S in Australia gets set for a full court hearing in March 2012.

In the Federal Court in Sydney this week, it was decided that the patent infringement case would go to an early full hearing in March and in return Samsung would pause its attempt to temporarily ban the device between now and then. In an amusing turnaround – Apple has consistently argued it wants litigation NOW, and has repeatedly stated it wants this hearing to go ahead immediately – In this latest case, Apple has argued that it could not be ready for such an early final hearing. In what seemed like a replay of arguments in the Samsung vs Apple Galaxy Tab case, Apple, which wanted to ban the Samsung tablet from sale due to patent infringement, was seeking an early final hearing, while Samsung was arguing it could not be ready in time. This time the shoe was on the other foot.  Read the full article »»»»

Apple Agrees to Refund Unauthorised Child Purchases

Posted: January 16th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Cult of Apple | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Apple Agrees to Refund Unauthorised Child Purchases

Apple Agrees to Refund Unauthorised Child PurchasesConsumer electronics giant, Apple, has agreed to refund at least $AU36 million to US customers whose children made purchases from its online App Store without parental consent.

The US Federal Trade Commission – FTC – says Apple has also agreed to modify its practice – which until now had allowed children to make purchases on a mobile device 15 minutes after a password was entered.

FTC chairwoman Edith Ramirez says Apple failed to inform parents of the 15-minute window that could allow children to make purchases ranging from $1 to $100 for each app.

Ms Ramirez says that because of the loophole, “children ran up millions of dollars in charges without their parents’ knowledge and consent,” a violation of federal rules, saying that “consumers will be obtaining full redress” for any unauthorised charges :: Read the full article »»»»


Apple vs The Galaxy! Exploding iPhones?

AppleAs if Apple’s war with Samsung, a pivotal supplier …or it’s recent brush with price-fixing, weren’t enough, the gadget giants products are now electrocuting users?

Apple says it will investigate claims that an iPhone electrocuted a Chinese woman who was making a call while charging the device. The case drew attention – both sympathetic and sceptical – after a woman in the western region of Xinjiang wrote about the death of her 23-year-old sister Ma Ailun on China’s popular microblog service Sina Weibo.

China is Apple’s second largest market, it’s products, many of them made in the country, are highly sought after. But the company came under criticism from state media in April for alleged “arrogance” and double standards, prompting an apology from chief executive Tim Cook. The People’s Daily, a mouthpiece of the ruling Communist Party, berated the US company for five days running, urging consumers to “strike away Apple’s unparalleled arrogance” :: Read the full article »»»»
