03/01/2013, It’s a good week for people with arms as earlier this week, Thalmic Labs introduced its MYO Armband which allows the user to control their computer simply by gesturing. And in addition to that impressive piece of tech, Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is showing of its glove that can turn arm waves into text. The GKIT’s “airwriting” glove system allows the person wearing the device to draw letters in […]
04/13/2012, For those of you who reside in Germany back in February, the push email function for Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe was suspended with the hopes of a turnaround.

02/03/2012, The battle is fierce, and Steve Jobs who vowed to go “thermonuclear war” with Google’s Android, might actually go through with his threats if he were alive today – after putting into consideration the latest developments at a German court that granted Motorola an injunction against Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe push email service as well as client devices. This is a permanent injunction, and it will not only affect Apple’s […]
01/12/2012, Last year, Apple successfully got sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab banned in Germany due to the fact that the tablet looked too similar to its own iPad. To circumvent the ban, Samsung had to come up with a redesigned tablet, and it looks like Samsung has managed to pull it off. First it redesigned the Tab 10.1 and released the Tab 10.1N, and now it has come up with […]
12/22/2011, It looks like HTC’s streak of bad luck just got extended after the ITC ruled in Apple’s favor which would basically see the ban of some of HTC’s Android products come 2012. Now over in Germany, a patent firm by the name of IPCom has sued about 100 retailers in Germany for continuing to sell HTC products after the December 20th deadline which was handed down in a ruling by […]
12/09/2011, It looks like Apple could be in a spot of trouble here as the German courts have ruled in Motorola Mobility’s favor regarding patent infringements. The courts have granted Motorola Mobility a “preliminary enforceable” injunction against Ireland-based Apple Sales International on the grounds that some of Apple’s products may violate their patents.
11/21/2011, It appears that Motorola is challenging Apple’s iCloud in Germany, claiming that the Cupertino used patents in their iCloud technology that belonged to Motorola.

11/16/2011, We know that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been banned in Germany. This is due to Apple successfully winning an injunction against Samsung, but it looks like the tablet is back with a slight change in name and a slight change in design, in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N, and in terms of design, well you can pretty much see for yourselves in the photo above.
11/07/2011, If you thought that Apple would be taking their loss against Motorola in a lawsuit in Germany lying down, you would be wrong as it looks like there is a good chance Apple could get the injunction against them suspended temporarily while they prepare their defense.
11/04/2011, Week-end or not, the legal war in the wireless industry continues. Apple has just lost a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Motorola in Germany, based on two patents described as “method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system” and “multiple pager status synchronization system and method”. Both are fundamental enough that they could affect every single Apple handset.
