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 [...]

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 [...]
The Apple vs. Samsung trial has officially begun, and if you were tired of all the drama in the previous one, this one is actually interesting and unique on its own. Previously we saw how Apple won the previous patent trial based mostly on software patent infringement, and this time, the lawsuit digs deeper into how Samsung has benefited in copying Apple’s smartphone development.
Today the trial has begun with Apple’s opening statement, where the company specifically asks for over $2 Billion in damages over Samsung’s infringement in five different patents. By [...]
Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about how Samsung was lucky enough to be dropped almost $450 Million in damages in their Apple vs Samsung trial. Then we talk Nokia as we’ve got tons of rumors of an aluminum device code-name Catwalk, and we also have additional talks of a water proof lumia in the works. Sony is up next as that 4.8-inch 1080p device that we expected for MWC is now being rumored for the Summer. The FCC then gives us some good news as their chairman has confirmed that he’ll look at the carrier unlock legal issues. We end today’s news by [...]
Legal action is always the last resource many companies use in order to claim what they feel is rightfully their own. We all remember the late Steve Jobs on stage for the launch of the original iPhone back in 2007. One of his memorable phrases when finishing his announcement of Apple’s new multi-touch technology was: “and boy have we patented it!”
Now that said, we know Apple didn’t invent multi-touch. We even talked about the whole process in this week’s podcast. What Apple did do, is precisely what Steve Jobs said, they did patent it in the same [...]
Just a couple of days before the jury begins deliberating over the Apple vs. Samsung patent lawsuit, Apple’s Tim Cook and Samsung’s recently appointed Oh-Hyun Kwon will discuss the whole soap opera over the phone, and yeah, we could all assume that each will use the phones that are fighting to win.
An interesting note about this event is that there’s a back-story to the relationship of both CEOs. It turns out that they’ve both worked together in the past, since Oh-Hyun Kwon led Samsung’s components business responsible for building many of the chips [...]
