Video: A Little Bit Of Ridiculous – 2001: A Space Odyssey Used In Samsung Vs Apple Patent War

Apple and Samsung have been going at it for a little while now, with Apple suing Samsung for the alleged copying of what Apple is trying to patent as the 'tablet look', with Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1. Well it looks like things are going a bit out of hand as Samsung are now using a reference taken from a 1969 film as a means of defense. The film: Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. The reference: read after the break. The clip from the film that Samsung are using in their defense has the film's actors using a tablet-like device, which Samsung are saying are generic tablets and therefor claiming Apple did not create the classic tablet look. This is of course the same design Samsung are using for their Galaxy Tab 10.1, and pretty much almost every other tablet out there. And wit

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Samsung's 10.1-inch Android tablet - has just had its spec sheet updated. The yet-to-be-launched tablet was to originally run Android Honeycomb 3.0, but is now upgraded to Android 3.1. This piece of news was confirmed by a Samsung rep who spread the news on the company's facebook page. If you are not yet in the know, Android 3.1 brings with it better hardware acceleration for faster graphics performance, resizable home screen widgets, an improved app menu that shows up to 16 apps, USB host capabilities and more. So when will you be able to get your hands on an Android 3.1, 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab? The company is expecting to ship the tablets out come June 8th, although that date may now be pushed back due to the OS update. That or if Google surprises us all wit

Waterproof SDHC and MicroSDHC Cards From Samsung

March 30, 2011 by HS in Accessories, Other, Random, Samsung with No Comments.

Samsung have announced the impending availability of waterproof SDHC and MicroSDHC cards in Korea. It's an interesting idea, and I suppose would be handy for people with certain high-risk professions, like fisherman or lifeguard or pool sweeper. Protecting your data for up to 24 hours of being submerged in water (what happens after that we're not sure of yet), you could drop your phone into the swimming pool, retrieve it, and still have all your music files, photographs and contacts saved on the SD card. Pretty nifty, but you're still out a phone. It's small consolation for what is ultimately an expensive lesson. via akihabaranews
