US carrier Verizon has join forces with South Korean manufacturer Samsung in its ongoing patent war against Apple.
Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple is seeking a ban on the sale of some Samsung devices in the US, claiming that they infringe on its patents. But, Verizon argues that any ban on the Samsung products will have negative effect on subscribers on its network.
Samsung will now fight its patent lawsuits against Apple more aggressively, a top executive of the South Korean electronics firm.
Lee Younghee, chief of Samsung's global marketing for mobile communications, accused Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple of "free riding" on Samsung's patented wireless technologies. She warned that they would take a tougher stance in the patent battle with Apple.
There was a time when South Korea was considered as the global leader in human embryonic stem cell research but then in 2005, when the work of Korea’s pre-eminent scientist Hwang Woo-suk’s team was reviewed by the review board, they sparked a fraud case over it and said that they have manipulated the data in its studies by copying from some other source.
This report was a big shock for the entire global scientific community.
Apple has filed a counter suit against South Korean electronics giant Samsung in the UK as the legal battle over alleged patent infringements is not over.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech gadget maker has confirmed that it had filed a countersuit against Samsung's suit that had been filed in the High Court in June this year.
South Korean electronics giant Samsung has come up with two new tablets, viz. the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note and the 7.7-inch Galaxy Tab.
Introduced at the 2011 IFA conference in Berlin, the midsized Galaxy Note runs on Android 2.3 OS, and features a 5.3-inch display, 16GB of storage, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2- megapixel front-facing camera.
A genetically modified female beagle has been created by the South Korean scientists to help in finding cures for human diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson.
