SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 8, 2012

We've officially reached the middle of the week, folks - only two more days to go and then the weekend is here once again. Today we didn't have too many stories about the ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung, but what we did get was huge.

Welcome to Tuesday evening, folks. Apple and Samsung's patent suit is still going on, but today we didn't get too much news about it. Samsung said that the high return rates of the Galaxy Tab had to with the devices malfunctioning, and not because customers were confusing it for the iPad like Apple claimed Apple's expert witness, Peter Bressler, said today that the iPhone brought on a "crisis of design" over at Samsung headquarters, and we found out just how much Mr. Bressler is getting paid to sit on the stand and testify for Apple.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 3, 2012

Welcome to the weekend, everyone! We're about ready to dive into the weekend ourselves, but not before we deliver the evening wrap-up.

Apple's senior VP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller took the stand today to convince the jury that the iPhone's design was unique, while the company's legal counsel did its best to make sure that Samsung didn't share any iPhone sales numbers. Judge Koh also said that Apple wasn't allowed to keep its customer survey results a secret, so Samsung did get a bit of news that could help it out as the trial progresses.
