Apple again believed to be going with Samsung for A9 SoC

Apple again believed to be going with Samsung for A9 SoC

Reducing reliance on one of their largest competitors seems difficult for Apple. According to a new report, Apple will turn to Samsung for production of their A9 SoC. Why would Apple go with Samsung again after having them split time with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for their current A8 SoCs? It seems Samsung’s edge in manufacturing process is what’s turning the tides. At 14nm (nanometers, so really small), the Samsung chipsets are less power consumptive, more powerful, and likely have a longer lifespan.

Samsung demands NVIDIA sales ban in patent retort

Samsung demands NVIDIA sales ban in patent retort

Samsung has shown it's not afraid to chase big legal injunctions when it believes its patents are at stake, and now it's NVIDIA facing a US sales block at the hands of the South Korean firm. A complaint filed on Friday asks the US International Trade Commission to shut down sales of NVIDIA's graphics chips, alleging they infringe Samsung's own intellectual property. As with Apple, however, Samsung didn't actually pull the trigger first: it was NVIDIA which kicked off this particular war.

NVIDIA responds to Samsung’s “false advertising” claim

NVIDIA responds to Samsung’s “false advertising” claim

It is a well known legal tactic, especially between companies, for one to fight back a lawsuit with a countersuit. So when NVIDIA sued Samsung and Qualcomm last September, in what it claims to be the first patent suit it has ever filed, it fully expected Samsung to hit back with a suit of its own, which it did this week. But what it didn't expect was for Samsung, in the same lawsuit, to accuse NVIDIA of falsely advertising its Tekgra K1 as "the world's fastest mobile processor".

Apple iMessage switch under legal fire

Apple iMessage switch under legal fire

It was realized several years ago that iMessage users were in a bit of a bind if they ever wished to switch to a non-Apple smartphone. Once you used iMessage with your phone number to accept messages, you were sort of stuck there. You couldn't switch to an Android phone, for example, and expect to keep getting messages - iMessage continued to get said messages, even if you weren't using iMessage. Apple released a tool to fix this - you can now de-register numbers from iMessage. Apparently they did not release said tool fast enough, as Judge Lucy Koh is on the case.

The San Jose court found in Apple's favor late last week, with a jury deeming Samsung guilty of patent infringement with its Galaxy series of phones among other products, though awarded the iPhone maker a fraction of the cash it was demanding.

Apple “is great, but they don’t own everything” Samsung says as trial begins

Apple and Samsung have begun their opening statements at the latest patent infringement case in San Jose, with Samsung already insisting that, while it respects its rival, it can't allow it to take responsibility for every innovation in mobile. The case, a return to the courtroom for the two behemoths after attempts at mediating a settlement failed earlier this year, sees Apple demanding $2bn from Samsung, or the equivalent of around $40 per handset.
