The New Apple MacBook

Apple's newest laptop is impossibly thin, incredibly light and has a screen that's to die for. Oh yeah, it also comes in gold. Yes, there are compromises — and no, this is not the notebook for every user. But make no mistake, the new MacBook represents the new direction for laptops.

Weighing in at just 2 pounds and a hair over half an inch thick (at its chunkiest point), the new MacBook has been completely redesigned to be Apple's most portable notebook ever.

Samsung takes the Lead over Apple

The Apple-Samsung war extends far beyond smartphones and patents. Fortune on Monday released its Global 500, a ranked list of the world's biggest companies by revenue. Samsung Electronics nabbed the 14th spot in the list with revenue of $178.6 billion last year. Apple was close behind in 19th place with $156.5 billion in revenue.

Samsung jumped from 20th place last year, after securing $149 billion in revenues. Apple was all the way back in 55th place in 2012 with $108 billion in revenue.

Despite their success at winning the technology space, it appears neither Samsung nor Apple should expect to hit the top spot anytime soon. 

Apple will control your Car's Key Features through Touch Screen

Granted Tuesday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, a patent dubbed "Programmable tactile touch screen displays and man-machine interfaces for improved vehicle instrumentation and telematics" (patent number 8,482,535) describes a tactile-feel touch screen that would let you adjust several of the key features and functions in your car.

The patent discusses such options as controlling the temperature, the

Apple on track to build multiple new iPhone models in June-July

Apple's new handsets are likely to launch around September, the analyst believes, based on the meetings in
Hong Kong and Taiwan. The information aligns with a separate report published last Tuesday that claimed Sharp would begin mass production of so-called "iPhone 5S" LCD displays in June.

In addition to the anticipated iPhone 5 successor, Apple is also rumored to be working on a new low-end iPhone that

Samsung did not infringe Apple patents willfully

Apple won't be receiving any additional damages for willful infringement as it had hoped. However, it's important to remember that just because the willfulness has been overturned, the $1.049 billion infringement verdict itself hasn't. That said, Koh could in theory reduce the damages Samsung owes, though she has yet to offer any rulings to that effect at this time.

The willfulness finding followed a bevy of other rulings in connection with the case, with Judge Koh otherwise hewing closely to the jury's own findings — including a refusal to ramp up damages on several other grounds as Apple had requested. One exception was Samsung's '941 standards-essential patent, which covers wireless packet transmission.Judge Koh ruled that claims 10 and 15 of the patent were invalid — something the jury felt Apple hadn't proved. Since Apple wasn't found to have infringed on said patent claims in the first place, however, Koh's judgment has no immediate impact on this particular case.Source

The Apple iPod Classic

What you should know: 
An anodized aluminum faceplate covers the front of the Classic in either black or silver, while the back of the iPod is covered in the same scratch-showing, smudge-loving chromed steel found on iPods for generations. Inside its 2.4-inch-by-4.1-inch-by-0.41-inch enclosure you'll find a whopping 160GB hard drive capable of holding over 40,000 songs. The 2.5-inch screen found above the click wheel is unfortunately still covered with plastic, making it the only remaining iPod that hasn't yet switched to a scratch-resistant glass screen.
There are no apps on the iPod Classic. There's no Web browser or e-mail. You won't even find options for Bluetooth music streaming or AirPlay. True to its name, the iPod Classic keeps with the basic formula for the iPod's original success. You just load it up with music, podcasts, audiobooks, and video using Apple's free iTunes software on your home computer (Mac or PC). And for better or worse, once you've loaded up your media collection, it's just stuck there until the next time you connect back to your computer.
Perhaps the last feature added to the iPod Classic is the capability to create instant Genius playlists. The Genius feature lets you create an instant 25-song playlist based on the musical characteristics of a single song, offering a new way to group together similar songs in your collection.

What it offers: 
The iPod Classic refines the formula that put the iPod on the map. None can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life, and intuitive user interface.
The advantage: 
The iPod Classic offers a solid, understated design with an easy-to-use interface and unbelievably generous capacity.
The unfavorable: 
EQ control is limited; the plastic screen is susceptible to scratching; and the only way to move media on and off the device is through iTunes.
The price:
$209.99 to $250.02

Scott Forstall and John Browett is moving out from Apple

If you want to be updated on the inside of Apple company, here is what you should know..

Apple announced on Monday that Scott Forstall, the senior vice President of iOS software, will be leaving the company in 2013.
In the meantime, Forstall will apparently step down from his SVP role and will be an "advisor" to CEO Tim Cook. Execs Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi will all be taking on more responsibility as a result of the shakeup.
Retail boss John Browett will also be leaving the company. According to a press release published on the company's website, "the Retail team will report directly to Tim Cook" until a new head of retail is found.
“We are in one of the most prolific periods of innovation and new products in Apple’s history,” Tim Cook said in a statement, per the release. “The amazing products that we’ve introduced in September and October, iPhone 5, iOS 6, iPad mini, iPad, iMac, MacBook Pro, iPod touch, iPod nano and many of our applications, could only have been created at Apple and are the direct result of our relentless focus on tightly integrating world-class hardware, software and services.”
Forstall has been a major force at Apple since 1997 and is credited with a good deal of the success of the iOS platform and had previously been in charge of the company's Mac OS software releases.
They had contributed much change to the company, but it is normal that if you want to continue growth and change in your life no one can stop it. Their technological evolution continues as their life existed.

The 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro

The answer to the question that, if the 13-inc Apple Macbook with Retina worth its price?, will be find out on the following passage.
At a starting price of $1,699, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a big step up in price from Apple's other 13-inch laptops, but it also offers features they cannot. Like the 15-inch Retina Pro, this new model includes a high-resolution display -- at 2,560x1,600 pixels, it's the highest resolution you can get in a 13-inch laptop -- plus two Thunderbolt/DisplayPort outputs, and even HDMI.
Compared with those, the base model Retina 13-inch Pro has a Core i5 and 128GB SSD. The unit is actually the step-up model, which upgrades the storage space to 256GB, for a total of $1,999. Add a Core i7 processor to that, and it's $2,199 -- the same price as the 15-inch Retina Pro, with a Core i7, 256GB SSD, and discrete Nvidia graphics.
Screen has less glare than previous MacBook screens -- the glossy top layer still seemed to reflect plenty of light from nearby sources. The Retina Pro sticks with a 16:10 aspect ratio (the much more common 16:9 aspect ratio is only found in the 11-inch MacBook Air).
The new MacBook Pro isn't going to satisfy every potential customer's connectivity needs. Ethernet, the optical drive, and FireWire are gone, but HDMI and a second Thunderbolt port (which also works as a DisplayPort out) have been added, just as on the 15-inch Retina Pro.


Samsung Can Sell Smartphone In U.S. Again

Here is the appeal result of Samsung Electronics to the court decision that gives favor to Apple company.
A U.S. appeals court overturned a preliminary injunction on the sale of Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's Galaxy Nexus smartphone on Thursday, dealing a blow to Apple Inc in a battle against Google Inc's increasingly popular mobile software.
Apple is waging war on several fronts against Google, whose Android software powers many of the Korean giant's devices. In one of the more visible signs of that battle, a high-wattage trial to determine whether Samsung's products infringed on Apple patents ended in August with a sweeping victory for the iPhone maker.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that the district court in California "abused its discretion in entering an injunction." The appeals court has sent the case back to a lower California court for reconsideration.
