BOLO: Apple Music for Android

Apple’s at least doing one thing right, and that appears to be in music. You can expect Apple Music for Android sometime in Fall 2015.

Self-Driving Cars: The Future of Motoring [Infographic]

Self-Driving Cars: The Future of Motoring [Infographic]

Google is well on its way to producing a commercially available self-driving vehicle. Apple has a similar vehicle in design, so realistically, two of the biggest names in technology are throwing their weight into making autonomous vehicles a reality. Of course, there will be plenty of uproar — or perhaps salivating — from the plaintiff’s…

Here’s Why Lawyers Shouldn’t Care About iOS 8

Once again, Android-lovers won’t find anything revolutionary about iOS 8.

What My Android Already Does, and Your iOS Doesn’t, Yet – Part Deux

What My Android Already Does, and Your iOS Doesn’t, Yet – Part Deux

Wow! Apple held its WWDC yesterday and Apple CEO, Tim Cook, introduced some amazing innovations to the new iOS 7. Of course, I had better things to do, so as usual, I waited for iPhone J.D. to summarize the event, polled some stuff from various Android-related websites, and bring you Part Deux, or Why you’re not going…

Apple Tries to Stay Relevant

Apple Tries to Stay Relevant

In the age of the super-swift smartphone, and post-Galaxy S4, Apple is clawing at anything to try and get a bigger slice of the phone market. Apple recently launched a “Why iPhone” page, hoping to sway consumers. Now, this kind of marketing is all fine, except consumers know about the iPhone, and those that love…

Infographic: Apple v. The World

Infographic: Apple v. The World

Here’s a cool infographic I grabbed from HelloAndroid that breaks down the Apple versus everyone litigation. I hadn’t realized that the patent wars were/are in 30 courts on 4 continents. We haven’t seen the end of these battles, but we’re hearing less and less. Even with its $1B victory, Apple saw a public relations backlash…

Apple v. Motorola Dismissed with Prejudice

Apple v. Motorola Dismissed with Prejudice

The patent lawsuit between Apple and Motorola got dismissed with prejudice today by a judge in Madison, Wisconsin.  Google issued the following statement: Motorola has long offered licensing to our extensive patent portfolio at a reasonable and non-discriminatory rate in line with industry standards . . . . We remain interested in reaching an agreement…

Samsung Hits Apple

Samsung Hits Apple

I said Samsung would sue Apple for infringing on its 4G LTE technology, and now Samsung’s started fighting. However, it doesn’t look like it’s over 4G, but rather a set of other patents Samsung already sued Apple for, and merely seeks to add the iPhone 5 to the list of infringing devices. This lawsuit came…

Apple’s Public Relations Nightmare

Apple’s Public Relations Nightmare

In my opinion, Apple v. Samsung was as much a statement about some of the flaws in our patent system, as it was about Apple as a company in general. I think that unless you’re really blind, you have to question whether Apple is motivated by protecting its image. Some have even questioned, based on the release of…

Apple v. Samsung – What Now?

With the “trial of the century” over, as far as it relates to the patent world, the big question is going to be, what now for Samsung? Obviously, Samsung is not going anywhere. As the world’s number two device maker, and 2012’s second quarter sales leader, Samsung, as one Tweeter commented, merely paid $1 billion…
