Apple, Samsung fail to agree IP settlement

  • Apple (AAPL) and Samsung (SSNGY) are set to face each other again in court at the end of March after the two companies failed to resolve their patent dispute in the U.S. during mediation that included Tim Cook and Samsung co-CEO J.K. Shin.
  • The latest trial will involve Apple IP that Samsung allegedly breached in relatively recent products, including the Galaxy S III smartphone.
  • Separately, Apple will issue a software update "very soon" to fix a security flaw in PCs running the company's Mac OS X operating system. The glitch leaves email, financial information and other sensitive data exposed.
  • On Friday, Apple released a fix for mobile devices running iOS.

  • Amazing how SA failed to inform the readers of the huge security risk on iOS and MacBook regarding their vulnerability to be easily hacked.

     

    The myth that Apple computers do not get viruses has finally been debunked by Apple themselves.

  • The security risk will not lead to a virus on your iOS/Mac devices, it can intercept your email/text or access them while you are on a non secure network "public" you want extra security get BBRY and stay away from every social media app out there

  • That's what a virus/Trojan horse whatever you want to call it. Its a malicious program or a hack, regardless of your excuse making on Apple's behalf.

  • that is not true, a Virus/Trojan lives on your machine, this does not apply, the security risk is in this case is intercepting your information that being send/received. Ohh it's a big deal trust me, but even before knowing about this risk I never did any sensitive data transaction on a public network "like doing banking while at a coffee shop"

  • That's good...I suppose you are right, but the virus or program to do such things has to exist somewhere on a network, even if its not yours.

     

    The trick of setting up a fake network so unsuspecting people connect to it thinking its a valid network is not the case here, this is something much more sinister.
