motorolas-complaint

Last week Motorola filed another complaint in a U.S. District Court in Delaware. Current company's approach is to invalidate 11 patents that were awarded to NeXT Software and Apple (which are both known to be founded by Steve Jobs).

It is said in Motorola's suit that these patents were named in Apple's complaints against HTC and other handset makers that use Google's Android OS in their smartphones. That explains why company wants to prove that these patents are invalid.

Here is the list of the patents that were named in the lawsuit:

Steve Jobs gifts iPods to Chile’s rescued miners



1

It is reported that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will gift the iPods to each of the Chilean miners rescued from deep beneath the Earth. Jobs has become one of the vast number of benefactors, who are impressed at the courage and inner power of the 33 Chile’s miners. They survived 68 days being literally buried alive. Le Figaro magazine claims that the iPods are the “personal gifts from Steve Jobs.” Now we don’t have any information about its model, but we believe it will be a top-of-the-range iPod touch 4G.

Steve Jobs is responsible for the canceling of a $10 million iAd deal



1

Apple’s CEO was personally responsible for the recent canceling of a $10 million iAd campaign. Steve Jobs wasn’t satisfied with the direction Adidas was taking with its advertising concept. After third rejection of the campaign concept, Adidas pulled out of $10 million iAd deal.

The reason behind the cancellation was Steve Jobs being a “control freak”. Apple, unlike other mobile advertising providers, controls the entire advertising process with its iAd program. While Apple has insisted this has more to do with the quality of the end product, it has definitely caused some problems for advertisers.

Astonishing Figures from Steve Jobs



jobs_figures

Steve Jobs sticks to his style, and so Apple’s Special Event revealed to us some quite interesting figures. First of all, the impressive number of all iOS devices sold to this day – it’s 120,000,000. Astonishingly, it took Apple 3 years (from June’07 to June’10) to reach 100,000,000, and the last 20,000,000 came in just 3 months. Jobs also boasted that Apple were activating 230,000 new devices per day.

Future iPads: You Want A Camera With That?



ipad

Steve Jobs might announce something yesterday he wasn’t supposed to. At yesterday’s event, Jobs indicated that iOS 4.2 would include all of the features included in versions 4.0 and 4.1 for the iPhone. When the iPad’s iOS is updated this November to version 4.2 it will be the first significant upgrade for the device since it debuted last spring.

Would that include HDR photography? If so, this would mean that at some point the iPad will be getting a camera. Perhaps Jobs was simply lost in the moment and meant nothing with his comment. But let’s be honest: Would anyone be surprised to hear that the iPad is getting a camera?

Possible $0.99 TV Show Rentals for $99 Apple TV



38777-500

Apple is holding talks with News Corp to fill their upcoming $99 Apple TV with $0.99TV Show rentals.

Viewers would be able to rent programs from News Corp.’s Fox for 48 hours, said the people, who declined to be identified because discussions aren’t public. CBS Corp. and Walt Disney Co., where Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is a board member and the largest shareholder, also are in talks about joining the effort, the people say.

Apple’s previous plan to make a subscription TV service reportedly failed as media companies didn’t want to take risks with cable providers.

iPhone 5 to Be Made of Liquid Metal, à la T-1000 from Terminator 2?



T1000Do you remember the robot called T-1000 Skynet made of liquid metal in the film Terminator 2? It seems that Steve Jobs decided to create devices of next generation using Liquidmetal Technologies, a California company from which Apple has recently acquired the exclusive rights for creation of liquid metal alloy products.

One of the best and most distinctive factors in all Apple products is how this company produces its own devices, the quality of production, as well as the materials used, which, undoubtedly, have first-class quality.

Now that Apple has the exclusive rights to create products of the liquid metal, we can assume that it has no plans to create a robot for the next Terminator movie, but probably will use it for such devices as iMac, iPad and iPhone of the next generation in order to be one step ahead of its competitors.

500x_branchrkidHere is the story of a 16-year-old boy whose name is Christian Owens. Being so young, he managed to make $1,000,000, following the steps of his mentor Steve Jobs who is Apple’s CEO.

Being an unusual boy, he achieved this result after 2 years of work in the Internet. Read how he did it: “The British teenager living in Corby, Northamptonshire got his first computer at 7. Three years later, he got a Mac and started studying the principles of web design. In 2008 when he was 14, he founded his first company. It was a simple website that some people may know: Mac Bundle Box. The website was pretty good and corresponded to the principles of design and style oа Apple.”

The website offered software at incredibly low prices, for example, an application that costs $ 400, here its price was just $ 50. This business has been developing and for the first two years of its work the website Mac Bundle Box has brought its owner $ 1,000,000. But he didn’t stop and created another 17 websites for the iPhone and Android applications, and new company called Branchr ...

Front Part of The Next-Gen iPod Touch Has a Space for Camera



iPodTouchPart1 iPodTouchPart2

This Thursday Macrumors received photos of one of the next-gen iPod touch parts, which reveal a hole above the display that will be most likely used for the camera. The pictures were sent by an unknown iPhone parts supplier.

Previously some resources reported about the presence of a camera and flash on the back of upcoming iPod touch. If all this information is true, the next-gen device will have two cameras to support FaceTime like the iPhone 4.

Apple wanted to build camera into the last iPod touch a year ago, but due to the technical problems the decision was annulled. When the final version of the player appeared on the market a space for camera was found inside of it after disassembling.

FaceTime support in iPod touch will be no surprise as previously Steve Jobs said that this year Apple will ship millions of devices compatible with FaceTime.

iPhone 4 will be used to make porn



 

Invent the newest gadget and the porn industry will find a way to cash in. Associated Press reports:

When Apple Inc. launched the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime video conference feature, it didn't take long for adult-entertainment companies to develop video-sex chat services and start hiring workers through Craigslist.

On the photograph above, taken July 21, 2010, adult film star Teagan Presley poses with her iPhone 4 in Atlanta. Presley is experimenting with Apple's FaceTime feature.

We all remember how Steve Jobs talked about iPhone's and iPad's "freedom from porn" in email conversation. It looks like in real life FaceTime and new iPhone 4 will push forward porn industry.
