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.

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

HTC One Max Android Smartphone Phablet Review

TheStreet (Dec. 26, 2013) — HTC's new One Max smartphone is HUGE - the phablet has a 5.9 inch 1080x1920 display. Compared to the original HTC One and the Apple iPhone, the size of the One Max is very noticeable. The One Max comes with 2 gigabytes of RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 4-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and a high-capacity battery. TheStreet's Gary Krakow finds the HTC One Max to be a great performer with a beautiful display, but holding the device for extended periods of time can be tiring.
