Cellphone calls on planes under consideration by FCC

Rules preventing in flight use of cellphones to make voice calls and access data services may be overturned, the FCC has hinted, with the federal commission proposing changes to policies it describes as "outdated and restrictive." The loosening of cellular services - which could include making voice calls while in the air - will be discussed at a December 12th meeting, the FCC confirmed; according to sources at the commission, planes themselves will effectively be turned into mobile base-stations, thus avoiding any potential interference with ground-based antennas.

Samsung denied Obama veto as Apple’s import ban upheld

Samsung's hopes that the US government would overturn an ITC ban on certain smartphones and tablets, just as President Obama's White House did for a similar ban on Apple devices, have been dashed, with the fast-approaching sales block upheld. The South Korean company had approached the US trade representative in August, arguing that a ban on several of its Android devices were counter to the public interest and requesting a stay on the sales block, just as Apple had been granted over an injunction it had been granted.

Samsung to appeal Apple suit after “disappointing” Obama ban veto

Samsung will take a second stab at skewering Apple's iPad 2 and iPhone 4 sales in 2014, the company has confirmed, even after President Obama vetoed a sales ban expected to begin this month. Having been "disappointed" by the Executive Office intrusion into the ITC ban granted last June, Samsung said it has already filed a court appeal against the original ruling, the Financial Times reports, because that judgement only found infringement against one of the four patents Apple was alleged to have violated.
