Yahoo undergoing Microsoft search transition after failed attempt to delay

Last month, Yahoo lost one of its latest legal efforts to delay a search transition with its long-term partner, Microsoft, in both Hong Kong and Taiwan. The given reason was that Yahoo wanted to wait until Microsoft selected a CEO, with the going reason being that Yahoo CEO Mayer wants to back out of the failed deal betwixt the two. Microsoft didn't appreciate such a move, and such spawned a legal battle that Yahoo has lost.

Huawei ban upheld in Australia following government review

Huawei, alongside with ZTE, has been the subject of concerns and scrutiny by the United States government and others, with fears revolving around possible spying that could be taking place on behalf of the Chinese government. The maker has previously been banned from use on Australia's National Broadband Network, something that was recently reviewed with the anticipation that the block would be ended. Such was not the case, however.

Samsung denied Obama veto as Apple’s import ban upheld

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. However, Bloomberg reports, Obama's trade chief refuses to play ball.

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

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.
