The UK Court ordered Apple to pay legal fees in favor of Samsung.



On Friday, the British Court ruled that Apple must pay legal fees to Samsung, after it was found that the company had not complied with the requirements of a notice on its Web site, which said that the South Korean company did not use the design of the iPad. Groklaw reported that the England and Wales Court of Appeal found the originals, posted on the Apple's website that contain inaccuracies and "false innuendo," requiring the payment of legal expenses on the basis of Samsung "indemnity "above the standard threshold.

In July, British judge, Colin Birss decided that Apple should put a notice on the home page of its website, with the announcement that Samsung did not copy the design of the iPad. The post was published, however, it was in the form of a reference to the statement in which Apple has made some changes.

The Court acknowledged that the added content has been false and distorted the essence of the decisions, especially referring to a quote by judge Birss, who heard the distinctive character of Apple products, saying it was torn out of context and "foster[ed] the false notion that the case was about the iPad."

Also in dispute was a reference to judgments through consideration of patents from around the world, including a lawsuit Apple vs. Samsung where Apple recieved $ 1.2 billion. The Court said that such inserts were "calculated to produce huge confusion" and that the notice contains "further false innuendo that the UK court's decision is at odds with decisions in other countries whereas that is simply not true."

In November, Apple was ordered to correct the notification under regulation. The decision of the Court was intended to illustrate the disapproval of Apple's behavior , especially in relation to the original order.

In conclusion, the author of the verdict, Sir Robin Jacob, offered the following comment: "I hope that the lack of honesty, resulted in this incident, a completely unique track record of Apple."

RedSn0w updated to version 0.9.15b3



The iPhone Dev-Team has announced an updated version of RedSn0w and an upcoming update to UltraSn0w for iOS 6 compatibility.

Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w “error 2601” that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button. It also fixes a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files. Note that if you have a baseband, you should probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).

Those lucky recipients of new iPad minis and iPad4s on Friday can use this redsn0w to save your 6.0 blobs off to Cydia. First connect your new device and turn it on, then use redsn0w’s Extras->SHSH Blobs->New and point it at the 6.0 IPSW.

Expect an ultrasn0w compatibility update for iOS 6.0 by Friday (mostly useful for 3GS old-bootrom users who are currently enjoying the untethered 6.0 jailbreak!). Same baseband support as with 5.x.

Thanks to @iamgolfy for helping test the 2601 Windows fix!

You can download the latest version of RedSn0w from here.

Diagram from the iPad mini tech specification page

It seems that iPad mini launch this Friday will mark the first time an iOS device includes stereo speakers. It appears that Apple’s transition to the new Lightning connector has left sufficient space for one more speaker on the bottom edge of the tablet, though the company decided not to include additional speaker to the iPad 4. Until now iPad models only included a single speaker grille.

How Apple made the iPad mini 23% thinner and 53% lighter




Yesterday Apple introduced the new iPad mini which has the same resolution as iPad 2 in a smaller 7.9 inch form factor that's two thirds the price of the latest iPad. But last year, it was more likely that Apple would make the iPod touch larger than reducing the size of the iPad. Apple went far further and did both, expanding the Retina Display iPod touch (along with iPhone 5), and scaling the iPad down.

This effectively gives Apple two very different new devices with nearly the same pixel count and very similar prices: the 4 inch iPod touch ($299/32GB and $399/64GB) and 7.9 inch iPad mini (16GB/$329; 32GB/$429; 64GB/$529; each with a 4G LTE cellular option for $130 more).
