Stagnation situation: Apple’s new line-up reflects Android’s dominance

by: Matthew BensonSeptember 16, 2015
While Apple may enjoy the best sales in the business, the actual ideas and products it's "creating" are very much been-there-done-that for Android. Hmm...

by: Nate SwannerJune 4, 2013

by: Chris SmithDecember 8, 2012
After recently invalidating Apple’s “rubber-banding” patent, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is back at it with another similar ruling. While not final, the new USPTO verdict says that Apple’s “Steve Jobs” multi-touch patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,479,949) has also been invalidated.

by: Kristofer WoukOctober 23, 2012

by: Kristofer WoukSeptember 12, 2012
With Apple's iPhone 5 just hours away from being unveiled, Steve Jobs: Resurrection takes a look at what would probably be a much more interesting event. With lines like "we switched the dock up arbitrarily, so I hope you like buying new accessories," this parody is bound to hit fairly close to home for some.

Steve Jobs’s “thermonuclear war” comments stricken from Apple-Samsung lawsuit

by: Chris SmithJuly 19, 2012

One of the most interesting patent-based lawsuits in the mobile world is set to kick off on July 30 between Apple and Samsung – the U.S. engagement. The two giants are suing and countersuing each other in various such cases that are spread over four continents, in 10 countries. Apple has already scored a garden-variety of pre-trial victories against Samsung both in the U.S. and in other markets, with the most recent ones being obtained in the States: two ban sales on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet and Galaxy Nexus smartphone, each found to be infringing Apple tech.

Samsung lost the almost immediate appeals, although it managed to stay the Galaxy [...]

Larry Page rumored to miss Google I/O due to voice-related health problems

by: Chris SmithJune 25, 2012

Google CEO Larry Page is now said to miss due to some unexpected health problems the main event in Google’s yearly calendar, Google I/O, scheduled to take place between June 27-29 in San Francisco.

Specifically, the CEO has lost his voice according to a Wall Street Journal report, and thus he won’t be able to take the stage during the keynotes of the developers conference. Strangely enough, he also missed Google’s annual meeting last Thursday and he is said not to make an appearance during Google’s upcoming Q2 earnings call that should take place in mid July.

Google has not detailed the health issues and the secrecy surrounding this [...]

Google Has a ‘Secret Project’ with Former Apple Senior Director

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 8, 2012

We received information that Google has just hired Apple’s former Senior Director for product integrity, Simon Prakash. While both Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt may have had a ‘no poaching’ agreement in the past, it seems like this is no longer in effect. This got us thinking if this will spark another series of patent issues and what-not.

Prakash was with Apple for 8 years and was recently the head for ensuring quality control for all Apple products. As of this writing, there is no news as to what Prakash’s new title will be, or if he will ever be working on Android related tasks. We heard Google assigned him to work on a ‘secret project.’ Does this have something to do [...]

Taiwanese Electronic Company Uses an Angelic Steve Jobs to Promote New Android Tablet

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 2, 2012

Okay, this may seem harsh but it’s worth the pun: a Taiwanese guy has dressed himself up to be a Steve Jobs look-a-like and promote an Android tablet from a Taiwanese manufacturer. And since the Apple creator is already dead, the Taiwanese comedian/impersonator Ah-Ken has used some angel’s wings and a halo.

The ad talks about the Action Pad, the latest Android powered tablet from Action Electronics.

Sporting the trademark look of Jobs—a black turtleneck sweater and blue jeans, the ad got a lot of people thinking that he is making a spoof out of Jobs’ typical character. But in reality, the ad nor the comedian has not made any direct remark that he is was Steve [...]

Was the Android Idea Stolen by Andy Rubin?

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 31, 2012

Here’s something AndroidPit recently shared:

Apparently, Andy Rubin (the founder of Android) was a former employee at Apple. He worked in the company of his biggest rival as their Manufacturing Engineer during the time of 1989-1992. After 11 years, Rubin founded Android. A couple of years later, he became Google’s Senior VP of Mobile.

Even though it was typical for people to bounce between companies, Rubin’s 3-year stint at Apple may be the reason why Steve Jobs felt such an intense hatred for Android. What’s even more interesting is that Steve Jobs was quoted that Android is a ‘stolen piece of software.’ Considering that Rubin used to report to inventors of the [...]
