Last week we let out a collective sigh when the first whispers of the iPad mini 2 emerged. It’ll have a Retina display, don’t you know?

Similarly, we’re now hearing the first reports of the successor to the spanking new iPhone 5 – namely the iPhone 5S. Amazing.

Apple ordered to pay Samsung’s legal fees after ‘huge confusion’ and ‘false innuendo’

Where were we with the Apple/Samsung apology saga? Most recently, we heard that Apple was using JavaScript to hide its apology (since amended).

If you rewind your brains back a tad further, you’ll remember Apple’s first attempt at an apology didn’t quite meet requirements, and as such the Californians have now been ordered to pay Samsung’s legal fees on an indemnity basis.

Oh, there was one piece of comedy gold when it materialised that Apple was using JavaScript to hide its apology thingy at the bottom of its landing page. Great stuff.

Over the past few months, we’ve watched the Samsung Galaxy S III hit the 10, 20, and – just last week – 30 million mark. There are a lot of Samsung Galaxy S IIIs out there, man.

It probably won’t come as much of a surprise then to hear that the Samsung Galaxy S III was the top selling smartphone in Q3.

Prepare to be this much stunned: not at all. See, iPad mini 2 specs are tipped to include – surprise, surprise – a Retina display.

Is Google Play closing the ‘monetization gap’?

It’s no secret that iOS is where the money be at for developers; that's just the way it is. Back in April this year, we heard that Google Play brings in just 23 cents for every buck made on the App Store.

However, according to a series of lovely graphs, it looks like Google Play is slowly closing the gap on Apple’s App Store revenue.

Apple seemingly uses JavaScript to hide its web-based apology

On October 25, Apple published the first attempt at a court-ordered Samsung-didn’t-copy-us statement on its UK site. A link was tucked away at the bottom of the home page, and the statement itself contained much cheekiness.

As such, Apple was ordered to try again, including a clearly visible statement – not just a link – on its home page. Well, it’s now live, but you’ll have to scroll down to see it – regardless of your screen resolution.
