Apple Files for Sales Ban on Nine Samsung Phone Models

Apple Files for Sales Ban on Nine Samsung Phone Models

TheStreet (May 27, 2014) — It's round two in the battle between Apple and Samsung after Apple filed for a sales ban on nine of Samsung's older models of phones. It's the latest in what has been a long legal battle between the companies. Earlier this month, Apple received only $120 million dollars in a patent lawsuit against Samsung, a fraction of the $2.2 bilion dollars it had originally sought in damages. Now, Apple is seeking a ban, arguing it is more important than any monetary compensation won in protecting the three patents it accuses Samsung of infringing. For its part, Samsung says the claims are overblown and a ploy to muscle out the competition. Apple has asked the court to either order a retrial or to review the compensation awarded by the jury.

Sales of Google's Android Devices to Top One Billion in 2014

TheStreet (Jan. 7, 2014) — Research firm Gartner predicts that sales of devices running Google's Android operating system will hit 1.1 billion in 2014. That would mark the first time shipments of Android devices exceeded one billion and would also represent a nearly 26% increase from last year. Gartner expects Android to remain the most popular operating system thanks to the success of low-cost smartphones on the market, but shipments of Apple devices are expected to increase by the most, while shipments of Microsoft Windows devices will also be on the rise.

Google Details New Android Wear Smartwatches at Its I/O Conference

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Google detailed its smartwatch operating system Android Wear at its I/O annual developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. The company said users' smartwatches running on Android Wear will operate as an extension of their phones. Users will be able to download apps directly to their phones in order to get them on their watches. Notifications on a user's watch can be dismissed by swiping the screen, which will also cause the notification to disappear from the user's phone. Google said the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are available to order in the U.S. now. The Motorola Moto 360 will be available later this summer. Video provided by TheStreet

Apple to Take Softer Approach as Patent War With Samsung Wages On

Apple to Take Softer Approach as Patent War With Samsung Wages On

TheStreet (July 10, 2014) — Apple will present arguments in a U.S. District Court in San Jose today, where it's expected to offer a "sunset period" giving Samsung time to redesign the nine features Apple says are infringing upon its patents, according to a report by Bloomberg. Apple's changing its tactic after having its request for a sales ban against Samsung rejected twice. Samsung has been found by a jury to be in violation of three of Apple's patents. They pertain to features including allowing a user to call a number directly from a Web site, automatic spelling corrections and unlocking the phone through gestures. Video provided by TheStreet
