Apple’s Apple Pay mobile payment app available on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus saw huge popularity after launch, injecting new life into the NFC-based payments business. Google, and others, have included such features in Android devices for years, but they never really took off. In fact, only recently, Apple’s competitors confirmed they witnessed an increase in Android smartphone-generated transactions after Apple Pay became available on this year’s iPhones. More →

Samsung might have to pay even more for infringing Apple patents

Samsung might have to pay even more for infringing Apple patents

By on November 26, 2014 at 8:00 PM.

Even though Samsung and Apple have settled their international patent disputes, the lawsuits in the U.S. are far from being a distant memory. Apple has largely won the two major trials in American courts, with Samsung having to pay more than $1 billion in combined damages; though both sides have appealed various verdicts in these trials.

Following the second, less-successful, win against Samsung, Apple has also asked the court to rule in its favor regarding ongoing royalties for Samsung products found to infringe three specific patents that a jury already found to have been infringed by older Samsung devices. More →

AT&T 3Mbps Service Fastet Internet

AT&T told to stop boasting about how ‘fast’ its 3Mbps service is

AT&T told to stop boasting about how ‘fast’ its 3Mbps service is

By on November 26, 2014 at 5:00 PM.

We really do have to give AT&T’s marketing team credit for this one.
