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

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.

Galaxy S 4 Gold and Platinum-plated editions suggest Goldgenie’s faith in Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 has seen its fair share of editions since its launch earlier this year, but none come close to the extravagance of the Gold, Platinum, and Rose Gold versions appearing customized by Goldgenie. This company is known for their hyping-up of devices of many types, making it clear with each choice of pre-customized model that they've got enough faith in its popularity that they'll make their mark on a broad scale. With the Samsung Galaxy S 4, the first non-Apple, non-BlackBerry device comes to the goldsmith.

iPhone ban hits in 60 days, Apple moves to appeal

iPhone ban hits in 60 days, Apple moves to appeal

In a ruling made earlier today, the ITC ruled that Apple was in violation of a Samsung patent that would have several versions of the iPhone banned from sale in the United States. This banning would cover the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, iPad 3G, iPad 2 3G, and the iPad 3, each of them as they're carried specifically by AT&T. This ruling does not have the products banned immediately, however: Apple has 60 days before the ban begins to either turn over the ITC ruling in an appeals court or, of course, ask Barack Obama himself (mentioned by the Wall Street Journal, oddly) to veto the ruling.

Apple claims Google Now infringes on Siri patents in GALAXY S 4

A series of patent infringement claims have been filed by Apple this month surrounding both the Samsung GALAXY S 4 and the Android-centric Google Now system.

Apple has also claimed in a similar document this week that claims against past Samsung Galaxy devices continue to hold true with the Samsung GALAXY S 4, the company asking that this device be included in a suit they've already got on the books.

Microraptor terrorized land and water new dino research reveals

It might sound like a killer drone, but the Microraptor was in fact an airborne terror that could harass fish as much as it did birds and mammals in the Cretaceous period, new dinosaur research has discovered. The flying dinosaur, known to be roughly the size of a hawk, had previously been believed to feed exclusively on what it could seize from the trees, but preserved stomach content examined by a team at the University of Alberta, Science Daily reports, revealed its appetites were far wider ranging.
