I have to admit I too thought the iPhone would be an expensive niche when it first hit. Guess I had good company in being wrong.

"Beating Apple is no longer merely an objective; it is our survival strategy."

This is all evident from Samsung's advertisements. But Apple constinues to remain above the crowd no matter what happens.

Actually, Samsung found a couple Apple documents including the email from Jobs on holy war with Google, etc that are pretty fiery too.

There's no question competition is hot. But eight jurors have to determine if there is patent infringement and big damages for it.

In reviewing exhibits I got from Apple this morning, the comment about TouchWhiz being "a direct rip of iOS" apparently comes from a user comment a third party market research firm quoted in a study done for Samsung.

How can they patent slide switches? they've been around longer than I have, and that means something. What sort of second rate patent officer lets that go through?

They're not talking about a slide switch, they are talking about how you slide your finger in a pattern on the screen to unlock your phone.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
