knight ridder future tablet

It’s hard to believe that someone envisioned tablet PCs 18 years ago, but a dusty video clip from 1994 shows us that there were, in fact, technology visionaries before Steve Jobs (insert “ironic grin” here). The video shows how newspaper company Knight Ridder saw the news of the future and, darn it, I must say that those guys were spot on with their assumptions. However, what they probably didn’t think their little video would do is seriously hurt Apple’s chances of winning the design patent war against Samsung and other Android tablet manufacturers, a war that is heading towards a…

Samsung loves to poke fun at iOS users, just like how Apple loves to poke fun at Android users. In this new commercial, Samsung shows that the next big thing is already here, while all the iOS users are lined up at an Apple store awaiting the launch of the next generation iPhone.

Of course iOS lacks that functionality out of the box, you have to download an…

There have been many articles floating around in cyberspace about Apple fearing Samsung, and yet, there are none like the one you are about to read.

The truth is, Samsung is involved in much more than just mobile phones and electronics. They are a massive company in Korea, and they are…

It looks like the fun soap opera between Apple and Samsung isn’t going to slow down any time soon, folks. Most unfortunate for Android fans in Australia, the latest iteration in the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Samsung has resulted in Samsung being told to halt sales and advertising of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 until the Korean company gets court approval that it may do so — or until the suit is resolved itself. According to Bloomberg, due to differences between the US and Australian versions of the Android tablet, Samsung is required to present the device to…

The skirmish between Samsung and Apple is getting more and more interesting, day by day. We knew from the very start that the clash between these two massive companies would create a lot of controversy. Samsung was sued by Apple because of alleged violations of their intellectual property, and, as such, was mandated to lay down their pre-production mock-ups of the Galaxy S 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Samsung Infuse 4G and the Droid Charge to Apple’s legal team, and the court. The reason why Samsung is obliged to do this is because Apple, and the court itself,…
