Apple blocking Samsung sales, again.

Apple's lawyers filed a preliminary injunction Monday afternoon that would ban the sale of eight Samsung mobile devices that were recently found to have infringed on the company's patents.

The targeted devices include the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge, Galaxy Prevail, and four separate versions of the Galaxy S II.

After a three-day period of deliberations, the jury in the landmark patent suit found that Samsung had infringed on Apple's patents in a number of cases, awarding Apple $1 billion in damages. Samsung has vowed to appeal, if Judge Lucy Koh doesn't throw out the verdict, according to CNN.

Legal experts at the well-known Groklaw blog have pointed out several inconsistencies in the jury's verdict that could put Apple's big win in doubt - including the fact that some of the evidence was apparently ignored by the panel, and subsequent interviews with jurors that suggest the judge's instructions on damages were not followed.

According to the Guardian, Judge Koh will make a final decision on the case within a few weeks.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
