Google Asked Samsung Not To Copy Apple

Another detail from the massive court case

So in this massive legal battle between Samsung's Android-powered devices and Apple's products fall in the wheelhouse of Android creator Google? Let's find out.

In the ever-growing legal dispute between Samsung and Apple, an email has come to light in which it was revealed that Google pressed Samsung not to create a device that resembled the iPad too closely.

"Since it is too similar to Apple, make it noticeably different starting with the front side," the email reads.

It was sent between Samsung employees, and reference comments made by Google executives during a closed-door meeting.

It's just one of many stories coming to light as the result of the huge patent lawsuit between Apple and Samsung. It's extremely rare for cases like this to go to trial, and one of the most important reasons is because all the evidence that is not incredibly sensitive becomes part of the public record.

Apple has accused Samsung of violating its patents through more than 20 products, most notably the Galaxy Tab and its similarity to the iPad, and the Galaxy Nexus's striking resemblance to the iPhone.

iPhone 6 Plus Display is the best there is (well, almost)

Sep 22 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Mac World

Samsung’s recent Galaxy Note 4 apparently edged out the recent Apple iPhone 6 Plus in terms of display quality, even though the analyst reviewing it basically called Apple’s displays the best he’s seen to date. In a report released Monday, DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira—who does nothing more than test smartphone displays, by the way—called the iPhone 6 Plus display the “best performing smartphone LCD display that we have ever tested,” Soneira wrote. “The iPhone 6 Plus has raised the bar for t ...

Apple iPhone Smashing and Bashing

Sep 22 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

We all love to see just how durable our iPhones are and videos are already popping up of them being dropped and smashed, both accidentally and on purpose. These videos are pretty sad, but also slightly entertaining and certainly a relief that they didn’t happen to me. The first video is of the first iPhone 6 purchased in Perth, Australia and it is a warning to everyone to be careful when un-packaging your new ...

AppleWatch Said to Pack 4GB for Storage, Need Nightly Charging

Sep 22 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

When Apple first announced its upcoming line of watches, one thing that was left out of the spec list was RAM and storage capacity. It is pretty clear that Apple still has a lot to work out before telling the world what the new device will do. One persistent analyst tracked down some information that may be true. At least, it sound reasonable. The Apple Watch, according to some in the supply chain, will come with 4GB of storage and ...

Fun Rant about Those Who Claim Apple is the Copier

Sep 20 2014 6:27pm CDT | Source: The Mac Observer

I got a tip Saturday about a new blog called Tim Cook's Id, with the subheading "what Tim Cook id is really thinking." I'm not sure if that's the case, but the inaugural rant is a beauty about those claiming Apple is the real copier in the mobile world. It's titled, "Anyone saying Apple copied Samsung/Google with a big screen phone is a $%&# idiot," which cuts to the chase. It's also invective-filled and spewy, but it's a solid as ...
