The iPad mini is no threat to budget Android tablets

by: Simon HillOctober 24, 2012
The iPad mini is not a "budget" tablet at all. With prices starting at $329 the budget Android tablet manufacturers can rest easy. The iPad mini is just another underwhelming, expensive release from Apple and this time it is a late entrant to a segment of the tablet market that is really starting to take off.

I’m switching to the iPhone because … (insert your own dubious reason)

by: Simon HillSeptember 24, 2012
Every time a new version of the iPhone hits the market we get a slew of articles from tech writers explaining why they are switching to Apple’s latest wonderphone and leaving the fractured hell that is Android behind. Obviously this kind of article is classic clickbait and fair enough, writers want people to read their articles and it’s their job to deliver eyeballs. The fact that most of them are full of fatuous reasoning and lack any real substance is what tends to aggravate the reading public.

Google’s response to Apple vs. Samsung trial: doesn’t apply to Android

by: Simon HillAugust 27, 2012
So what does Google think of Samsung's court loss against Apple? According to its statement the patent war will go on, the validity of Apple's patents will be challenged, and Android will prevail (reading between the lines a bit on that last one).

Google services on Android vs. third-party services on iOS

by: Simon HillAugust 21, 2012
As Apple strips Google services out of iOS and adopts more third-party options, Google continues to integrate its own services more on Android. Does it make sense for us, or is petty squabbling getting in the way of the best user experience?

Apple is engaged in a number of lawsuits and countersuits with Android device manufacturers, but so far there has been no direct clash with Google. Is Google helping its partners behind the scenes?

German court rules in favor of Motorola in patent infringement lawsuit by Apple

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 18, 2012

The world of patents and patent infringement is a complicated one, and the intricacies of these filings are difficult to understand. All we can do is watch and wait for a result that we can comprehend, and that is victory or defeat. Granted, it is not as black and white as “I WIN!! We’re done” with the appeals system, and other numerous infringement lawsuits, which can introduce a whole lot of grey.

I’m sure it’s not surprising to anyone that Apple is involved in over 60% of the patent infringement lawsuits around the world. One such case was a lawsuit Apple filed against Motorola in [...]

Ban temporary lifted: Galaxy Nexus available again, but only until Apple responds

by: Gary SimsJuly 9, 2012

A U.S. appeals court has temporarily lifted the ban on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The smartphone is now available again directly from Google via its Play Store. However, the reprieve might be short lived, as the court said the stay on the injunction will remain only while it considers Apple’s arguments. The court gave Apple until July 12th to respond.

This latest decision is part of a bitter battle between Apple and Samsung (and indirectly Google) which started in 2010 when Apple started suing Samsung for “slavishly” copying the iPhone; naturally Samsung counter-sued, and so a war began. As part of the conflict, each company is digging deep [...]
