tmsamsung has moved to have the decision in the Apple-Samsung patent case tossed out of court. Among their many reasons, the company says the jury foreman failed to disclose a lawsuit and personal bankruptcy. Velvin Hogan served as jury foreman and had been sued by Seagate in 1993. Velvin says he was only asked to disclose lawsuits from the past ten years.

- Samsung sold its hard drive business to Seagate and maintains a business relationship.
- lawyer who filed the complaint against Hogan is married to an attorney who works for the firm that represented Samsung
- also said Hogan’s public statements after the verdict suggest he failed to answer the court’s questions “truthfully” to “secure a seat on the jury.”
- Dozen exhibits including design patents are based on "look and feel," and that prior art must be "interchangeable" in order to invalidate a patent.
- Hogan said yesterday’s filing has him wondering whether Samsung “let me in the jury just to have an excuse for a new trial if it didn’t go in their favor.”
- Samsung also arguing other causes for mistrial or a reduction in damages.

.

- Google will add Street View images to the mobile Web version of Google Maps as soon as this week. Walt Mossberg of ATD says he's tested it and it works well, pan around with a finger
- Google announced on Chromium blog its also added PeerConnection API to latest beta of Chrome. this allows third-party devs to build video chat apps that don’t require plug-ins. natively provide Google Hangouts video chats in Chrome, for example. along with thegetuserMedia API this is one step closer to WebRTC, a standard for video, audio, and data on the web.
- right now Google uses a proprietary plugin for Google+ Hangouts. WebRTC is a standards-based solution that would work in a variety of browsers, no plugins. WebRTC could also eventually lead to more interoperability across a number of video chat and messaging services, and it could be an even bigger disruption to mobile video communication.
- Microsoft publicly joined the WebRTC camp in August – but has a different approach... might slow down wide adoption
- Google just announced that Google Apps for Business, Education and Government customers can now call and email the company with their questions about Chrome.

Hey,

Kyle from South Korea.




It's super easy for many normal customers to say

"oh, I can just go to google map website or download (name here) app. why do people complain?"


But, did they realize that it's a hell of a nightmare for the developers?

Every app that uses the embedded map is now screwed.

ex1) A student develops an app for gathering HW buddies using a map of campus and the pin feature. He's screwed if the iOS6 map doesn't have detailed enough map for the campus

ex2) A restaurant suggestion app is virtually unusable. Launch Yelp on iPad and see how messed up the map is.


I heard some of small developers who relied on the embedded map now feel suicidal because the map lacks detail for their countries and cities.


This is BAD

TNT Crew,



On Monday's show, you were ripping on the idea of movie projectors in cars. Now I don't know how jenky these specific ones are, but as someone who helped a friend wire one into his car, having them built-in is a huge convenience! Now, why was I doing this? Because as soon as I hit 16, I wanted to get out of the house! And as it ends up, if you want to watch a movie in your house, there are parents...but if you watch them in the car, no parents! It's a no-brainer for any one between the age of 13 & "I have my own place" :p




Back in the day we even hooked up an FM transmitter so we could get a group of cars & have everyone watch & listen (if we didn't wanna pile into ). There was also an abandoned grocery store (never finished construction due to contract issues, but it had plenty of brick walls that weren't underground like the parking garage in the demo) where we could, and usually did, go to watch movies. Maybe it's not a setup for everybody, but I can't imagine high school without it!

That car projector from TNT #597 does have one good practical use: tailgating.
My brother was just asking me how he could use a power inverter + projector + laptop w/ tv tuner to watch football while tailgating.

Problem solved. :)
