Australian retailer ignores injunction, sells Galaxy Tab



galaxy tab

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that despite the injunction prohibiting the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablet in Australia, several Australian retailers have ignored Apple's threats and continue to profit from demand for the barred Samsung tablet.

At least one, dMavo, said it had created a separate entity in Europe to place it outside the jurisdiction of Australian courts, with the tablets delivered to customers from Asia.

"We have a new entity established and a separate server - just to deal with the tablet orders - that is undergoing testing as of last Saturday," dMavo managing director Wojtek Czarnocki said.

"Was Apple just bluffing or do they really want to play the cat and mouse game? We're up for it."

Melbourne law firm Watermark's senior associate and patent specialist Mark Summerfield suggests, however, it would be relatively simple to extend Apple's injunction to individual online resellers because it already applies to device maker Samsung. The only thing Apple will have to do is to apply to the Australian Federal Court for further injunctions. But it would be difficult for Apple, because the company is based overseas.

New Chrome Enhancements Include Lion Multitouch Gestures And Omnibar History Sync



Chrome enhancements

The latest developer version of Google’s browser Chrome includes several new improvements. Now the software supports Apple’s multitouch gesturing in OS X Lion. This improvement allow you to flick your finger right or left with Magic Mouse or (two fingers with Trackpad) to go back or forth in your history.

With another enhancement you can be assured that accidental hitting of the Command + Q combination will not quit Chrome since to quit the browser you need to hold down the combination for a brief time.

Apple patent suggests Magic Mouse with display panel



patent-1

A new patent from Apple shows a display embedded in the Magic Mouse touch surface. Such display will be able to present some information or allow contextual input options.

For example, it will be showing a calculator when using the Numbers app on Mac, or a magnification of text when using Pages. The application notes that the dynamic touch-display input method could be employed on other devices like a keyboard, or even a mobile device like an iPhone or iPod touch.
