New Apple Vs. Samsung Legal Battle Even More Important For Google Than Last Time By Grab Media, a blinkx company The second U.S. Apple vs. Samsung trial, which is set to start on Monday in San Jose with jury selection , may be even more important for Google than the new reports in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal reveal. Unlike in the first patent fight between the two smartphone makers when Apple said Samsung copied the design of the iPhone with its devices, Apple is now attacking Samsung solely with patents that cover Android software features. Thus, the verdict in this case is all the more important for Google. ...Read More »
Apple-Samsung Jurors Selected By Grab Media, a blinkx company With jurors in the patent fight between Apple and Samsung selected, attorneys for the world's leading smartphone makers were expected to make their opening statements in federal court on Tuesday. The trial in Silicon Valley marks the latest round in a long-running series of lawsuits between Apple Inc. and Samsung, with the companies accusing each other of stealing ideas and features.

Purported IPhone 6 Pictures Said To Come From Inside Foxconn By Grab Media, a blinkx company Three images posted to a Weibo account purportedly reveal Apple's upcoming iPhone 6. The pictures, which are said to be sourced from someone within Foxconn, show a prototype device that's apparently being run through tests at its production facility. The photos depict a much thinner device — so lean that the camera lens visibly protrudes from the phone's body. That would be a departure from previous iPhones, though Apple has already gone down this path with the iPod touch. Until now, rumors about the upcoming iPhone have mainly focused on its screen. Multiple reports have claimed Apple is experimenting with larger display sizes to compete with a sea of huge Android smartphones that blur the line between smartphone and tablet. ...Read More »
Data Point: People Really Like To Read On Their Kindle Fires By Grab Media, a blinkx company Tablets are pretty versatile: You can check email, browse the Web, play games, listen to music and whatnot. And thats exactly what people who use iPads and Galaxy tablets do, according to Statista , which looked at a survey from Kantar Worldpanel that asked people what they frequently use their devices for. Apple and Samsung customers use their tablets much in the same ways. (One area where Samsung tablet users stood out: listening to music.) Kindle Fire users, though, arent in the same mold. They check email much less compared to iPad and Galaxy customers. And no other category comes to close to the one thing many Kindle Fire owners say they do frequently on the device: read. That makes sense, considering how much books and reading are in Amazons DNA ...Read More »
Facebook Scrapped Last Year's Redesign Because Your Screen Is Too Small By Grab Media, a blinkx company When Facebook scrapped the picture-heavy News Feed redesign from last spring in favor of a more conservative look, it briefly touched on screen size as a factor. As it turns out, displays played a more important role in the reversal than you might think. The company's Julie Zhuo explains that the hyper-visual layout fell apart on netbooks and other small-screened PCs, which means users might only see one post at a time. While the early 2013 feed would have boosted Facebook's revenue, it wasn't going to fly when the social network has to please hundreds of millions of users that seldom have access to big displays. ...Read More »
Switched On: Amazon's Puzzling Prime Directive By Grab Media, a blinkx company While Netflix is generally believed to be far ahead of the service from the online retailer, Amazon is still fighting hard to match it. Recently, Amazon has focused on signing distribution deals, producing original content, adding metadata via X-Ray and even allowing downloads of some titles on its Kindle Fire HDX. Amazon Prime Video is available on iOS devices in addition to its Kindle Fire tablets, but unlike other Amazon apps like Kindle and its music store, it's not available on other Android tablets or phones. There may be one other wild card to Amazon's reluctance to make Prime Video more broadly available. The company has been rumored to be working on a television add-on. ...Read More »
Russell Crowe's Rare 80s Music Video By Grab Media, a blinkx company Thursday on "The Tonight Show," Russell Crowe stopped by to promote his new movie "Noah," but all Jimmy Fallon wanted to talk about was his early music career. Russell was in a totally 80s band called Roman Antix, and Jimmy showed him a clip of the video a black and white affair in which Russell pulls apart some blinds and sings through a window. Crowe said that the song sold about 500 copies, but that didn't keep him from sticking with a music career. They also discussed a brief period where he went by t ...Read More »
