It goes without saying that Apple appealed to the court in order to request sanctions against Samsung.

Those who use iCloud.com - not only the Apple developers - can now try the new iWork for iCloud beta. All you need to do to take a look at Google Docs and Office 365 main rival is to sign in to your iCloud account. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are the three apps the new cloud-based office suite can boast of.
The video was filmed on a Keynote conference in 1999, where Steve Jobs introduced the iBook G3. It was the first computer that carried an inserted Wi-Fi card. It was the first time Wi-Fi was introduced to the masses. To prove that the technology was really wireless, Steve Jobs used a Hula Hoop to put the laptop through it.
On this historic conference Jobs said that 'everyone' would jump on the 802.11 bandwagon in the next few months/years. "We're just going to be there first, and the best," Jobs said.
The video shows Jobs surfing the net from an iBook that was just woken from sleep. Nobody in the audience was aware that Jobs was using a wireless technology, so when he stood up, picked up the laptop and walked around the stage, opening webpages wirelessly, the crowd roared with applauses. Then he put the laptop through a hula hoop to show that the Internet collection was indeed wireless.
Apple has recently won a large supply contract for iPads to LA Unified School District. According to the program, all students in the school district will be equipped with iPad. The gadget will boast the Pearson Common Core System of Courses presented as a new app. Moreover, Apple’s iWork (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) and iLife (iMovie, iPhoto, GarageBand) suites will be preloaded on each iPad as well as some educational third-party apps. Apple says that the $30 million commitment is the beginning of a bigger contract from Los Angeles schools.
The first 31,000 iPads are only the initial phase of the program, which plans to buy and distribute iPads to all 640,000 students in the nation’s second-largest school district by late 2014, Mark Hovatter, the chief facilities executive for the LAUSD, told CITEworld.
“The most important thing is to try to prepare the kids for the technology they are going to face when they are going to graduate,” said Hovatter. “This is phase one, a mix of high school, middle school, and elementary students. We’re targeting kids who most likely don’t have their own computers or laptops or iPads. Their only exposure to computers now is going to be in their schools.
Apple is sending invitations for iWork for iCloud Beta to non-developers. It’s high time the company from Cupertino did this, I must say. Here’s how the invitation sent to one of the users looks like:
Apple.com has recently had its Support pages updated. This event follows the previous redesign made on the rest of the website. Today most support pages were updated, such as Videos, Manuals, Tech Specs, and Downloads.
Before, the Support pages used to look out-of-date as compared with the rest of the website. Moreover, some problems could be faced when searching information on these pages. The updated version features product menu, so that one could search for manuals related to a specific item. Another improvement concerns search results sorted by product.
The last but not least, since now the Support pages will boast the same design as Apple online store.
Rejoice all those who don’t like neither Google Docs, nor Microsoft Office 365 as a few days ago their new rival was born. Announced in June at WWDC, this rival is a purely new cloud-based iWork version. Well, actually, this is still only a beta and at the moment it is available only for Apple developers. However, what that means is that the relatively short-term Google-Microsoft domination in the sphere of cloud editing tools might be soon over.
Here’s the link for the developers that haven’t yet tried the new product and some screenshots for people that don’t have a developer account. Take a look at those photos.
