SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 2, 2012

Well folks, the end of Thursday is nearly upon us, which means we'll be kicking off the weekend soon. Today brought quite a bit more news about the Apple vs. Samsung trial than yesterday did, with Samsung's lawyer fighting back against allegations made by Apple's counsel. Things aren't looking too good for Samsung though, as it appears that Judge Lucy Koh has thrown out quite a bit of the company's evidence, and now Apple is requesting sanctions that uphold its patents based on yesterday's evidence leak. The upside to all of this, however, is that we got another peek at an early iPhone prototype today, so be sure to check that one out.

2013 Cadillac ATS Review [Video]

The 2013 Cadillac ATS has some serious challenges ahead of it. Mid-life crisis convertible aside, there's no car segment so fraught with identity issues as the compact sport sedan. So far, the BMW 3-Series has been the "I've made it" model to beat, a heady Teutonic mixture of performance, prestige and affordability, but Cadillac is hoping the smallest model in its range can light an American torch to rival it.

We caught up with Cadillac at a 2013 ATS preview to see whether the all-new car was truly as "world-class" as promised.

The Auto tech wake-up: Free iPads and Apple-trained tutors

The Auto tech wake-up: Free iPads and Apple-trained tutors

Fiendishly complex car dashboards aren't just a concern to safety regulators but auto manufacturers too, worried that new buyers may not only fail to use gadgetry-packed vehicles but may come to resent them. Cadillac's new 2013 ATS may be tempting gas-heads with its sharp styling and engine options, but the fact that the GM-owned company will throw in a free iPad - preloaded with a new CUE training tool to help owners get the best of their car - should help take some of the sting out of the touchscreen dashboard too. It's not just Cadillac which is reacting, however; other car manufacturers are even raiding well-known computing firms for their tech tutor talent.

There are some real live Cadillac-made semi-automatic "driverless" cars being tested this week using technology they call "Super Cruise." This mode of driving allows for fully automatic steering, lane-centering, and braking in highway driving conditions - but they've got to be optimal or it does not work.
