This is the latest ruling in the ongoing legal dispute between Samsung and Apple. In the court Apple had accused Samsung of blatantly copying the design of iPhone and iPad and has previously won injunctions against the sale of Galaxy Tab tablet in other countries. Koh wrote in the order:
Some early users of the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display have reported that their new laptops are experiencing image persistence issues with the high-resolution screens, though the problem is not believed to be widespread. Apple is aware of the issue, as the company has ordered replacement units for the malfunctioning screens.
Earlier this month at Worldwide Developers Conference, Scott Forstall, Apple’s Vice President of iOS, unveiled a new “Passbook” app that allows users to track different types of stubs, including movie tickets, coupons, loyalty cards and boarding passes.
Passbook app is included in the iOS 6 beta currently available to developers, but it is missing virtual passes to put inside. Currently it is just a sitting page without functionality. But Passbook will likely swing into full action as the company adds more functionality heading this fall. Those of you who want to start using this app, can do this in iOS 6 with a few simple steps.
Instapaper developer Marco Arment heard from multiply sources that Apple doesn’t plan to release a Retina display-equipped iMac model in 2012, instead the company prefers to wait until 2013. Later this year, possibly in the fall, Apple will launch the refreshed iMac models. Sources suggest that the company won’t introduce the high-resolution all-in-ones, until it brings the Retina Display to more of Apple’s computers.
9to5Mac has reanalyzed the previously-obtained code for the next-generation iPhone prototypes and found references indicating that the new smartphone would support NFC technology for mobile payments.
We’ve previously been able to pull data from PreEVT iPhone 5,1 and iPhone 5,2 prototypes codenamed N41AP (5,1) and N42AP (5,2), which leads us to believe that the new iPhone will have a bigger 1136×640 display. We also detailed a lot of the hardware here but forgot one very important little bit. Further investigation into this hardware code dump leads us to believe that these iPhones also have Near Field Communication (NFC) controllers directly connected to the power management unit (PMU).
The "dev2" version should fix the various SSH problems and crashes with apps that some have been seeing.

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), an independent non-profit organization focusing on electricity research and development, carried out the study of the Apple's new iPad, having found that devices like it could help lower the high power consumption. The institute discovered that charging a device once every other day from full discharge costs mere pennies per day, a dramatic reduction from large electronics like HDTVs and PCs.
At Worldwide Developers Conference this month, Apple announced that it would release OS X Mountain Lion through its Mac App Store in July. Apple also said that users of Snow Leopard and OS X Lion would buy the new OS at an upgrade price of $19.90. After the conference keynote, the company also issued a “near-final” build of its new OS to developers for testing purposes.
Although Apple’s new MacBook Pro offer Retina display with a resolution of 2880x1800 pixels, the display options don’t allow users to run their operating systems at full resolution. The extra pixels serve to display more details on a canvas with previous resolution of 1440x900 pixels. However users, who want to display their systems at resolutions higher than 1440x900 pixels, can do this, as System Preferences provides several options ranging up to resolution of 1920x1200 pixels.
In a new research note, Brian White, Topeka Capital Markets’s analyst, points to a report from Chinese site 21cbh.com saying that Foxconn/Hon Hai planned to order LCD television panels from Sharp in 3Q 2012 instead of the 4Q 2012, which fuels speculation that the panels are intended for a forthcoming Apple TV set that could be launched for holiday shopping season. Earlier this year Sharp and Foxconn
Chief Executive Officer Terry Gou of Foxconn told its stockholders during the annual meeting on Monday to disregard Samsung's recently-released Galaxy S III smartphone and wait for the upcoming iPhone 5 instead, mentioning a number of strategies that will allow the company to "beat" Samsung within the next three to five years.
Various manufacturers claim that Apple is planning to reduce its 30-pin dock connector, first introduced in 2003 in the third-generation iPod, to a 19-pin port. The new connector could be reportedly implemented in the next-generation iPhone set for launch this fall, according to multiply rumors.
