Apple fuming over Samsung's "unethical" press leak

Intends to file an emergency motion demanding that Samsung is sanctioned over the matter

Apple is fuming over Samsung's decision to send evidence - deemed inadmissible by the judge in the Apple v Samsung trial - to journalists.

Apple claims that Samsung action was "unethical" and intends to file an emergency motion demanding that Samsung is sanctioned over the matter.

Samsung's lawyer John Quinn submitted a five-page document, as requested by Judge Koh, claiming that the company's actions were legal and ethical.

He claims that the submission to the media was in reaction to requests from reporters.

Apple reacted by sending a letter to Judge Koh stating: "Samsung's multiple references to the jury in its statement make plain its intent that the jurors in our case learn of arguments the court has excluded through the press. This deliberate attempt to influence the trial with inadmissible evidence is both improper and unethical."

Samsung claimed in the statement issued to the press that the evidence, an email from Apple designer Shin Nishibori referring to "making" a Sony phone and some 2006 Samsung phone designs, "would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design.

Apple has already produced evidence predating the Sony mockups that shows an iPhone-like device that it had produced back in 2005. Judge Koh had already ruled that the evidence should be dropped from the Apple v Samsung case.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
