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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
