    We've spent the last couple of years seeing two of the biggest technology companies battling each other over patent disputes. What's even more interesting about this drama is that both companies are also partners in various ways as Samsung is a big supplier of Apple's silicone on iOS and Mac products. We've kept you on the loop on how these companies have fought each other inside US courts, but the story is broader outside the country, or so it was. It seems that both Apple and Samsung have decided to end all their patent disputes outside the US. We've already seen how a jury granted Apple ...

    One of the cool things about patent trials is that even though one company might accuse the other of infringement, the accused has a right to access confidential information from the accuser in order to defend itself. Such is the case of Samsung, as the company and its lawyers had access to all the Apple/Nokia patent deal documents that were confidential, but that were used in the recent trial that Samsung lost. Even though the documents were all stamped with "for attorney’s eyes only", Samsung later quoted exact terms of the deal in its own negotiations with Nokia. Obviously Samsung ...

    Apple and Samsung are clearly not just famous for the partnerships that make most of Apple's mobile devices possible, but also because of how much each company fights in court. We've already learned what judges and juries think about the patent allegations between both companies, where Apple mostly turns-out victorious, but we also know that each company is being instructed to find a more amicable route to fixing these problems. If you're wondering where these negotiations stand at the moment, well, let's just say you won't be surprised at what's going on. Each company has issued a ...

    We recently heard that Samsung would ask Google for some help in sending some of its founding Android engineers to take part in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, to which Google agreed. It's only fair that Google participated in helping Samsung fix these issues since some of these patent claims have mainly to do with Android, and not necessarily TouchWiz. What we didn't know is that Google had also decided to do more than just participate in the trial with its employees. It's pretty much confirmed that Google will be paying for some of Samsung's damages in case Apple wins the patent trial that ...

    Today is Earth day, and as a result, many companies take it upon themselves to make their environmental efforts public. We've seen Apple do some significant leaps in making its facilities greener over the years, and the same can be said about its planned "spaceship campus 2". What we never expected was for Apple to actually use this opportunity to take a stab at its most famous competitor, Samsung. Cupertino's new ad, which can be found in many news papers around the claims that "There are some ideas it would want every company to copy". The text within the ad reads: "There’s one area ...

    As the Apple vs. Samsung trial continues, more documents get uncovered that reveal the internal struggle in each company to compete against each other. As much as Apple may boast that it doesn't care about competitors, recent documents reveal that the company is worried about how Samsung and Android are growing. If you thought that Apple was alone, you're mistaken, and we've got more documents today to prove it. Samsung America’s former CEO Dale Sohn took the stand, and in an internal presentation he shared with his team, it was revealed that defeating Apple was the company's primary ...

    As more drama continues with the Apple vs. Samsung trial, you might remember the news last week of Apple's sales team worried because of the threat that Android was becoming. Obviously those documents were just the beginning, and as the trial continues today, we've come across more documentation relating to the same topic, this time with some visual graphs that reveal how Apple is not taking advantage of the market growth. According to the graphs, the biggest smartphone demand is actually coming from devices with bigger displays at a more affordable price, and Apple acknowledges that it ...

    Testimonies continue in the Apple vs. Samsung trial, and this time we have the leading software engineer in charge of basic features like "slide to unlock," Greg Christie on the bench. Today we find this feature in absolutely every smartphone that you can buy, but before the iPhone, all you had was a power-standby key. Christie spent a good deal of time explaining to the Jury how long it took the company to figure out a smart way to reach consumers with the iPhone, and the details are quite revealing. According to Christie's testimony, things like slide-to-unlock were features they took ...

    As the Apple vs. Samsung trial continues, you'd think that Apple is the only one winning in a trial that it started, but reality poses differently. Obviously it's up to the judge to admit evidence against either party, or to allow certain patent claims to be submitted as admissible. Today's progress in the trial shows that Apple isn't the only company with some cards under its sleeve. Today Judge Judy Koh decided not to admit an Apple motion to allow the company to present evidence to the jury that it’s actually practicing three of the asserted patents against Samsung – namely the ...

    As the Apple vs. Samsung trial continues, one of the coolest things is that the defense (Samsung) has access to Apple's internal documentation, which is doing a great job at showing just how vulnerable the company is. We've seen allegations coming and going over how Apple feels at a loss in its ability to show customers its innovation when diluted by Samsung's competition. Obviously Samsung is just one of Apple's threats, and some new information today expresses Apple's deeper concerns regarding Android as a whole. According to an internal document that came from Apple's sales department, ...

    If you haven't been following the developments, today is Apple vs. Samsung, day 2. Apple's first witness for today is non-other than Apple's SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller. His participation in Apple trials has become quite common, and more specifically, in the previous trials between Apple and Samsung. Today Schiller takes the stage one more time, but oddly didn't surprise anyone with his statement. As it turns out, Schiller simply decided to play it safe and re-hash the same statement he's used in two previous trial testimonies about the reasons why Samsung has infringed in ...

    As the trial of Apple vs. Samsung continues today, we've already heard Apple's arguments as to why Samsung has benefited from the whole development process of building phones through Apple's experience with the iPhone. Obviously the next step was for Samsung to defend itself, and you'd think that Samsung would counter Apple's arguments during its opening statement, but the company insists that it's just a victim. As it turns out, Samsung's attorney Bob Quinn decided to pull out an old 2010 email written by Steve Jobs to his staff to address the battle between Apple and Google as the "Holy ...
