Apple and Samsung just can not get along, can they. According to Bloomberg, Samsung has said that an Apple’s attorney made racist remarks during the closing arguments of the damages case, and therefore asked for a mistrial to be declared…yeah.

Google’s Newsstand app will come to iOS in 2014

Google’s new app announced today, named – get this – Newsstand, will be coming to iOS sometime in 2014. Google Play Newsstand being the full name of the service (still find it insane that it chose “Newsstand” at all), it combines both Google Play Magazines and the Currents application into one aggregated service; you know, like Apple’s Newsstand on every…

ZAGGkeys Folio for iPad Air: Closest thing to a workhorse laptop experience on iPad yet [Review]

“Can the iPad replace a laptop?” Is a question many ask, and one that so far remains unanswerable as a general statement.

Skech Flipper for iPad Air: A great alternative to Apple’s Smart Case, at half the price [Review]

Apple’s Smart Case for iPad Air is a wonderfully constructed and designed case. It combines the elegance and design of the thin leather and microfiber with the practicality of the Smart Cover with great effect. But it’s not cheap, and it is hard to justify spending $80 on a thin case, no matter how well designed it is. And that’s where third parties…
