Apple and Samsung have been exchanging blows with each other in the Australian courtroom for the past two years. Neither side has emerged as a clear favorite to win, but the case is already breaking records.
Because of the enormity of the case, Australia’s Federal Court has appointed two judges to hear the case together. It’s the first time Australia’s Federal Court has ever needed to have two judges hear a case together.
It has taken its time, but the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy S III is finally making its way to 3G handsets on Australian’s Telstra. This is the “Premium Suite” package that brings Multi-Window, Page Buddy, contextual menus, Best Face, and a whole lot more to Samsung’s flagship smartphone.
Google’s Technology Ambassador thinks using Apple Maps might kill you
Michael T. Jones has a helluva fun job. He’s the Chief Technology Ambassador for Google, and as such, he not only gets to work for one of the coolest companies in the world, he also gets to cruise around the world and tell people why Google is so darn awesome.
When it comes to Apple, you would think that Michael Jones would have some really mean things to say. In a recent interview with ABC News in Australia, Michael Jones actually praised Apple and said that customers can trust Apple with their private data. But then he added that using Apple Maps might kill you.
Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy S IV, its next-generation Android flagship, on March 15 — before it goes on sale in early April. That’s according to a “trusted insider,” who claims the location of Samsung’s Unpacked event is still “top-secret.” Invitations will reportedly go out to the press just after Mobile World Congress at the end of this month.
