06/17/2013, A couple of Apple's patents are being challenged by an anonymous party.
06/06/2013, Think you've got a mean funny face that nobody else can replicate? Good, as that is what Google wants to use for future passwords.
06/04/2013, Older iPhones and iPads cannot be sold as they were found to have infringed upon Samsung's patents.
05/30/2013, One of Apple's more recent patents that were filed would be that of a flexible display.
05/28/2013, Microsoft has filed for a patent that will reward its users with achievements for just watching TV.
05/28/2013, Sounds like a convenient tool, although we're not sure if Apple would ever implement it in future iOS devices.
05/16/2013, Let’s face it, while the flash units on our smartphones are getting better with each passing generation, they certainly aren’t as strong compared to dedicated flash units found on DSLR cameras, but what if there was a way that you could make use of the flashes from other cameras to help light up your subject from multiple angles? Well if you thought that would be cool, Apple has a patent […]
05/14/2013, Back in 2008, a company known as Motiva filed a suit against Nintendo because the former claimed that the latter had infringed on a patent in the Nintendo Wii (which was a hot ticket item back then), dealing with the tracking of player movement and position. So many years later, Nintendo has finally picked up a victory in the patent infringement case which was brought by Motiva, meaning the Nintendo […]
04/25/2013, It is without a doubt that Google Glass is a piece of hardware which is highly desirable, although there does seem to be pretty restrictive rules concerning the device, especially those that prevent it from being sold at the risk of getting it bricked by the folks over at Google. While there is possibly no chance for the masses to get hold of their own Google Glass sometime this year, […]
04/25/2013, If you’re the kind of person who can’t seem to find your way back to your car on a regular basis, then we’re sure you’ve downloaded an app or two that helps you find your vehicle, especially after a long night of drinking. But a new Apple patent may hint at a future where your iPhone can not only help find your car without the need for a third-party application, but […]
04/24/2013, One thing for sure in the past few days would be this – HTC and Nokia cannot be the best of friends. It simply is not possible, as Nokia has brought HTC to task for using a microphone part which was originally meant for exclusive use in Nokia smartphones only, no thanks to an oversight by the folks over at STM Microelectronics who surprisingly enough in this day and age, […]
04/23/2013, Passwords are sensitive stuff, and with so many user accounts for a person to hold these days, it can get rather tricky trying to remember all of them, as some sites require 8 characters minimum, while others want a healthy mix of numbers, letters and at least one uppercase character, leaving some of us to use the same password across multiple accounts where possible. While that makes life easier for […]
04/22/2013, Earlier this morning, the folks over at ITC passed a ruling that obviously favored Apple from Cupertino, which would translate to another legal defeat for Motorola, as the ITC ruled that the iPhone did not infringe upon Motorola’s patents. This would mean it has been a couple of losses for the subsidiary of Google since Friday, especially when a German court then denied Motorola Germany an injunction against Microsoft concerning […]
04/17/2013, Last month we reported on a LG patent for a phone that came with 3 displays that slide out underneath each other, and it looks like HTC has considered something similar in the past, albeit with a more reasonable dual-display instead. Considering that patents don’t necessarily indicate intent to go into production, there’s really no saying if HTC will ever follow through with this idea, but it’s worth taking a […]
