Apple Back on Top of J.D. Power Tablet Owner Satisfaction Survey

JD Powers 2014 tablet satisfaction survey 1

For three years now, J.D. Power has been conducting surveys regarding tablet owner satisfaction. For the first time in the three years, overall tablet satisfaction has declined. The main reason for disillusionment from consumers is attributed to ease of operation due to navigation features and functions changing from last year to this. Apple is back on top again after a controversial drop from the top spot last year. Just like last year, Apple scored “among the best” in four out of five categories.

Angus the Irritable Bull Charges into the App Store


One great thing about the iPad is that it is the prefect vehicle for launching a thousand adventures for young readers.

Tech Media Gets Tricked, Biometric EarPods a Fake, Creator Comes Clean about His Bathroom Antics

EarPod Rumor Fake

Last week, a very shaky rumor began to swirl in the tech world. An anonymous poster to a website called “Secret” made an announcement that Apple’s next generation of EarPods would come equipped with heart rate and blood pressure sensors, as well as iBeacon transmitters.

Yesterday, the original author of the rumor came clean with another anonymously created Tumblr blog expressing his apology for letting the rumor get out of hand. It was just a joke that got out of hand. “I made it up. I wrote it 5 minutes after I woke up on the 1st of may. I was blurry eyed, I had a headache, I was using the toilet and worrying about my blood pressure.”

‘Godzilla: Strike Zone’ Lets you Face the Legendary Beast

227 Godzilla

iOS and the App Store have created an impact on so many areas of the entertainment industry and a new game called Godzilla: Strike Zone from Warner Brothers is a perfect example of using an app to market a new movie. Strike Zone was released this week and is a basic first person shooter with three levels. It took me about 20 minutes to beat the entire game but since it was free I didn’t really mind that it was so short.

Jury Finds Samsung Infringed on Three More Patents from Apple, Apple Infringed on One of Samsung’s

Samsung-vs-AppleThe battle goes on. After years of spending millions (if not billions) of dollars and thousands of hours in court, Apple and Samsung are still waging the patent war. This time, the conflict is over software instead of hardware. Apple took Samsung to court in the U.S., again, with the trial ending last Friday. The jury found that, of the five patent infringement claims that Apple had, three of them were legitimate. At the same time, Samsung accused Apple of infringing on two of their software patents. The jury found in favor of Samsung on one of them.

According to a synopsis of the ruling by Re/code, the jury found that all of Samsung’s phones infringed on patent 647, the “quick-links” patent. Additionally, some of Samsungs products infringed on patent 721, the “slide-to-unlock” patent, while others did not. The jury also found that Samsung “willfully infringed” on a third, unnamed patent.
