    It may seem like Microsoft is fighting a losing battle in web search, but sometimes, even ranking second can be good enough for a tech giant of Redmond’s caliber, as long as that means servicing more than 20 percent of US e-queries.

    Global iPhone sales set a new all-time record during the holiday season (ahead of a radical projected decline), while Samsung reported an unprecedented quarterly dip, so you’d probably expect the US mobile market to have gone with the worldwide flow.

    Apple thinks it has won. It won't let Samsung believe otherwise nor will it see to the Supreme Court considering so.

    Apple's in the business of buying old iPhones. Maybe the company doesn't quite position it like that, but if your iPhone isn't ancient (iPhone 4 or newer), Apple will offer you a little cash when trading in your old model for the purchase of a new one – from as little as $100 in the case of the iPhone 4, to as much as ...
