Samsung sales ban hearing will only take place in December

The Apple v Samsung trial may now (finally) be over, but there's still the matter of Apple's attempts to get its rival's products banned based on that verdict to look forward to.

And everyone's favourite legal celeb Judge Lucy Koh has just announced the date for when those follow-up legal proceedings will take place: December 6.

Apple beats Samsung: the quotes

Apple beats Samsung: the quotes

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 27, 2012 at 14:00

Jimmy Martinez scribbled up a hunk of Apple/Samsung reportage on Saturday morning, detailing Sammo’s guilty verdict (x7) and the resultant bill for $1,049,343,540. Yeah, that’s roughly how much I get paid per paragraph.

Now we gots quotes from Samsung and Google. The Apple team was reportedly too busy doing shots of tequila in the adjacent bar.

It’s Review of the week
Super-slick and sleek
Bad times (up **** creek)
Special kind of geek.

My lyrical talents are wasted on you people. Wasted. Now where were we? Ahh yes, mobile phones and stuff.

This week's highlight? Hmm, the UK 4G news was quite interesting, no?

Apple v Samsung: Apple awarded bn in damages for patent infringements

Apple v Samsung: Apple awarded $1bn in damages for patent infringements

Martin James  Aug. 25, 2012 at 10:00

Well that didn't take long, didn't it? After the case itself seemed to drag on forever, the jury in the Apple v Samsung court case in the US has reached its verdict in double-quick time, and it's a simple one: Samsung, you're guilty.

The jury found Samsung has clearly infringed on seven of Apple's key patents, and ruled that Sammy must now cough up to the tune of a staggering $1bn.

iPhone 5 and iPad mini to have separate launch events?

iPhone 5 and iPad mini to have separate launch events?

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 24, 2012 at 11:00

Apple still hasn’t announced an official iPhone 5 launch date, but the cyberweb has kinda decided, on Team Cupertino’s behalf, that it’ll happen on September 12, with sales starting on September 21. So there.

As for the iPad mini, well, rumourmongers have been touting that same September 12 launch date, but one chap in particular has a different theory.

iPhone 5 tipped for supply shortages

iPhone 5 tipped for supply shortages

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 23, 2012 at 16:00

It’s tradition for the latest iDevice to be tipped for supply shortages in the run up to launch. Back in March, we were told that the iPad 3 would be in short supply till Q2 2012. Nonsense? Pretty much.

It'll come as no surprise, then, that the imminent iPhone 5 is being tipped for short supply action. Pass the salt.

Windows Phone and the Lumias mightn’t have carved a particularly large slice of the smartphone market, but there’s no disputing that they are – for better or worse – miles apart from the same-old iOS and Android wares.

And you know who appreciates it? Apple, that’s who.

I won’t lie to you: this week was quite possibly the slowest in the history of mobile. There was a cursory nod to the imminent iPhone 5 and iPad mini, and the quad-core Huawei Ascend D Quad – first spotted at Mobile World Congress – is still on its way.

However, that didn’t stop you maniacs posting over 200 comments, each more profound than the last, with nary a word uttered off topic. Oh, and no pictures of cats either. Honest.

It's Samsung v Apple, starring Judge Lucy Koh

It's Samsung v Apple, starring Judge Lucy Koh

Martin James  Aug. 17, 2012 at 10:00

Let's get something straight: I truly detest the juvenile legal battle over patents currently raging in the US courts between Apple and Samsung. Both sides should get rid of the lawyers, grow some common sense and move on.

But after 16 hours of the tech press being more obsessed by crack than the most dedicated of strip club addicts, I have to ask the question: just who exactly is all this about – Apple and Samsung, or Judge Lucy Koh?

You all know Pinterest, right? The social networking thing with the pinning of the pictures and the interests and the what have you?

Well, Pinterest has been kicking it on the iPhone for a while, and now it’s finally made the leap to the iPad, and – as if that wasn’t exciting enough – Android smartphones and tablets. Yay and stuff!
