Apple wants Google to hand over documents relating to Android that will help it in its case against Samsung. Apple, which is in a patent-infringement lawsuit with Samsung, claims that Android "provides much of the accused functionality" of Samsung's infringing products and that doing a thorough search of these documents is essential to proving Samsung is intentionally infringing on its patents.
Lawyers for Samsung argue that Apple intentionally left Google out of its lawsuit and only targeted Samsung as Google doesn't have as many rights when its a third party to ... more

As WWDC and the unveiling of Apple's iOS 7 draw closer, it is likely that Apple is ramping up testing of its upcoming OS to ensure that it is ready to be shown off to developers and the public. Several sites have now been getting a significant increase in traffic from devices running iOS 7, with these devices originating from Apple's set of IPs.
Apple news site MacRumors and mobile site creator Onswipe both reported seeing massive spikes in iOS 7 usage from users visiting their sites. Onswipe claims that ... more
If there's one thing Samsung loves doing, it's bashing Apple and Apple fans, so it's only fitting that its S Voice assistant is programmed to throw a few punches as well. When asked if it's ever used an iPhone, the S Voice assistant responds with a biting remark: "No, I have standards."
Even though it takes a shot at Apple, the S Voice assistant can't help but admit that it also likes to think of itself as Siri. When asked, "Are you Siri" the response is, funnily enough, "I ... more
With the release of the iPhone 5, some Apple fans are starting to get concerned with where Apple goes next with its smartphone. With the phone's size and display being arguably almost perfect, there doesn't seem like there's much the company can change in the upcoming versions. That's why former Apple advertising expert Ken Segall predicts that it is time for the iPhone to follow the path that was set out for it by the iPod.
Segall, who used to work for Apple overseeing the company's marketing efforts, says that ... more
Apple recently pulled a couple of apps from the App Store for violating clause 2.25, which prohibits any app from replicating the App Store's functionality by promoting or offering any apps for purchase other than your own, including AppShopper (which has since returned) and AppGratis. According to PocketGamer, Apple is expanding this clause to reject any app that offers app search features from third-party apps.
Apple will also reject apps that encourage recommendation sharing. One developer whose app did just that, told PocketGamer of their app being ... more

Chat applications have undergone a huge transition over the last decade. We've gone from AIM and MSN to Facebook Chat, Gtalk, and Skype. The one thing that hasn't seemed to change all that much, excluding Facebook, is how these applications look and feel. When it comes to the Mac, we've got two options: Adium and Messages. One of them is hard to look at and the other is hard to use because it hardly works properly.
Dawid Liberadzki and Oskar Krawczyk got sick of how Adium looks and feels ... more
You could almost drag and drop Apple's Jony Ive into this video and he'd fit right into what HTC is trying accomplish in this video. Whether you're into Apple or not, this video from HTC that shows off what went into the HTC One design is pretty neat.
It's been a while since I've picked up an Android phone, and I've been thinking about picking one up to play with. If I end up pulling the trigger, it'll be the HTC One. It's probably the best designed phone on the market ... more
Buying a printer with AirPrint support is pretty easy when you're setting up a home network for the first time. You have limited options, but you can quickly get a printer onto your network. It's not so easy when you work in a large office that already has printers that are bigger, better, and way too expensive to replace with consumer level offerings. Ecamm has built Printopia to help convert normal printers into AirPrint-capable devices. Printopia Pro, much like its consumer counterpart, turns a Mac into a print server, ... more

Back when the first jailbreak was announced I was pumped, but then immediately disappointed as my phone become less than stable, and crashed at the most inopportune times. I didn’t last a month without reverting back to a clean install of iOS. A lot has changed over the years. Jailbreaking
