SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 16, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is here again, but before we dive in, we need to recap the day's news. First and foremost, our review of the HTC DROID DNA went live just a little while ago, so if you've been thinking of picking that phone up, be sure to have a look at our review to see what we think of it! We found out today that Apple and Samsung have been permitted to add new devices to their lawsuit, so expect Samsung to go after the iPhone 5 while Apple tries to collect damages on a number of Samsung devices. Speaking of Samsung, the company is rumored to show off a new handset with a 5-inch 1080p display at CES, so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for that.

Roger Dean’s Dragons Dream for iOS Review

Roger Dean’s Dragons Dream for iOS Review

The artist responsible for some of the most iconic album covers in rock and roll history, the man known as Roger Dean, has taken part in the creation of a game by the name of Dragon's Dream. This game takes some fabulous ethereal environmental elements from Dean's artworks and creates a multi-level set of worlds for you, a tiny dragon, to fly around in.

New iPad mini adverts pit big against small

New iPad mini adverts pit big against small

Apple has quietly rolled out a pair of new iPad mini adverts, focusing on the 7.9-inch tablet's interplay with the full-sized iPad, and how both deliver the touch experience merely at different scales. The two new commercials look at Photos and iBooks respectively, tying the two versions together with themed photos - each iPad showing one half of the frame - and topically linked books.

Apple faces second FaceTime lawsuit over iPhone 5 and iPad mini

Apple faces a second attack on its use of FaceTime, with web software firm VirnetX dragging the Cupertino firm back into the courtroom over video calling tech in the iPhone 5, iPad mini, and other hardware. VirnetX, which scored a $368m win against Apple earlier this week, claims the new smartphone and 7.9-inch tablet - as well as the 4th-gen iPad with Retina display, the 5th-gen iPod touch, and the latest batch of Macs - are just as guilty of infringing its networking-based patents as earlier iOS gadgets.

iPad dominance slides as Samsung and Amazon tap tablet sales

Apple's iPad saw its market share slip more than 15-percent in Q3 2012, according to new research, with Android tablets from Samsung and Amazon clawing away sales amid a growing market overall.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 2, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is here at last, but before we dive in, it's time to recap the news. Today we heard that Microsoft might be testing out a smartphone of its own, which doesn't really surprise us considering that it just recently entered the tablet market. Apple's freshly rephrased "apology" to Samsung went live in UK newspapers today, and one analyst is expecting the iPad mini to top 1.5 million sales this weekend. Speaking of the iPad mini, we saw a drop test featuring the tiny slate today, and the tablet launched to shorter-than-normal lines for an Apple product.

iPad 4th gen GPU innards revealed

iPad 4th gen GPU innards revealed

The newest iPad has had its guts revealed once again, showing off not just the pieces we knew about, the A6X processor included, but the GPU and its abilities as well. The folks at AnandTech have gone in for a deep-dive into the A6X as it exists on the iPad 4, showing a brand new PowerVR SGX 554 GPU. The A6X processor retains many elements from the A5X processor the iPad 3 worked with, including the memory controller interface sitting adjacent to the GPU cores instead of the CPU cores, as it was in the A5 and the standard A6 (on the iPhone 5).

iPad 4 teardown: More of the same (and a missed opportunity)

iPad 4 teardown: More of the same (and a missed opportunity)

Apple's fourth-gen iPad may have been a bit-player alongside the iPad mini at the launch event last week, but the 9.7-inch tablet still gets its time under the screwdriver. The tricksy teardown merchants at iFixit have wasted no time in putting the iOS slate in its place: that is, in separate pieces splayed across the table. Unsurprisingly, the team there don't rate it highly for DIY repairability; more unexpected, though, is news that Apple didn't really make the most of the changes it implemented.
