SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 21, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. Let's jump right into the news, shall we? Today Apple delivered its closing arguments in the suit against Samsung, and it didn't pull any punches. Additionally, we found out that jurors deciding the case have been given various devices to help them decide who's in the right, but can't do much of anything with them. Apple's stock took a bit of a dip after it was crowned the most valuable public company ever, and some good news coming out of Foxconn, as its progress report with Fair Labor Association came back positive.

New Nexus device specs leaked via Samsung spreadsheet

It appears that there's a brand new Google Nexus smartphone headed out via Samsung with slightly upgraded specifications over the next-newest device, the Galaxy Nexus. This next-generation Nexus device has been tipped by SamMobile where they've got the Galaxy Nexus to the left of the device and the Galaxy S III to the right. Unfortunately we don't have any actual hardware to confirm the reality of this smartphone, but the specifications certainly seem to be possible.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 9, 2012

Welcome to Thursday folks, just one more work day before arriving at the weekend. Today we had next to nothing about the Apple vs. Samsung trial, except for the news that a similar South Korean trial has been frozen for fear of it becoming too similar to the one being held here in the US. The lack of Apple vs. Samsung news leaves room for far more interesting things, however, like space! The Curiosity rover sent back a color panoramic shot of the surface of Mars along with its first full resolution image, and it's a pretty awesome sight. Sadly, it wasn't all exciting news for NASA today, as the Morpheus moon lander failed during a flight test and exploded into flames. Luckily no one was hurt, but this is still a pretty big setback for the folks at NASA.

CyanogenMod 9 for Galaxy Nexus hits “Stable” status

If you're part of the ever-growing developer and hacker culture that exists in the Android universe, you may well have heard of the most popular software build made by a 3rd party group: CyanogenMod.

Today the group has announced that the first "Stable" release for their newest version, CyanogenMod 9, is available for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 1, 2012

We've collided head-on with the month of August, and today we had some interesting news stories to ring in the eighth month of the year. Surprisingly enough, we didn't have too much news about the ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung, except for the part where Samsung made Apple really angry by sending evidence that the original iPhone was inspired by Sony designs out to the press. Samsung found itself in a bit of hot water after that leak, so this evening it seems that Samsung has managed to get on Judge Lucy Koh's bad side. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said today that the Galaxy Nexus can remain on sale until August 20 despite Apple's request for its preliminary injunction against the phone to be restored, so if you've been planning to buy one, your window to do so has been extended.
