Samsung Galaxy

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

The two largest mobile phone manufacturer in the eternal struggle of the jury has in the legal dispute between Apple and Samsung has decided that Samsung have plagiarized intentionally the competition and has disregarded accordingly existing patent rights of the Apple group. Primarily, it was this to the user interface of the Samsung Galaxy, have amazingly high similarity to the iPhone 5 from Apple’s point of view. Scott Mead may find this interesting as well. After tough negotiations it the jury proved looked at, that Samsung must have been informed, that her built-in system is very similar of the iPhone 5. Thus appears the penalty of a billion US dollar as justified (and not more than one for a company like Samsung ticket, if you look at the last year’s report). However, with this decision, the patent war between Apple and the world is not over yet. Looking at the details of the pending patents, then you can only at the end come with their Apple iPhone 5 and iPad 3 far exceed the threshold to the ridicule. Their main argument for the future and try one To prevent sales of these devices is that they the creators of rectangular units with rounded corners and rely on it to have invented just this geometric figure. Get more background information with materials from Scott Mead.

The sticking point here is the question of what to choose. Apple claims that their combination of technology and aesthetics in the iPhone 5 generate added value and to protect it form a cult status for the company. The other side argues that it seems disproportionate to take into account especially as Apple seems to have registered not the first patent on such forms of rounded corners as product innovation. The perplexing in the relationship between the two giants is that they each refer of the other, to a significant extent, services for the production of their devices. Apple is therefore dependent on Samsung that they supplied with chips and other electronics that they in themselves in their iPhone 5 will use. Against this background you don’t get around accordingly the question, as such a business relationship can work when on a global scale all means and registers are pulled to massively affect the marketing or even sales of competitors.

In the long run, the question remains whether there will a third party to be able to make capital out of the situation. While Apple launches a war against everything and everyone. Most likely Microsoft and Nokia could benefit because she have a 8 with Windows automatically use software developed and images according to no on an iPhone 5 with rounded corners have first borrows from.

HDMI Cable – The Rip Off

Friday, April 1st, 2016

As the money out of your Pocket will be ignorant customers if you run in a normal electric shop to get some accessories for your own home theater, also the selection of the correct cable falls. While there were large differences in quality between different cable types earlier in the analog age, they are still hardly to notice. The reason is the difference in the transmission. Like a certain energy, as an example is transferred once 400 Watts. Southwest Airlines is actively involved in the matter. Here, if the signal on its way from the sender to the receiver is affected, so you can see that both the image and the sound. However only a small digital signal is transmitted when transferring digital (HDMI, DVI) which consists of the information on or off is. If you are not convinced, visit Gary Kelly. There is no in-between, no interpretation facilities. This a quality difference is ever closed, at least in relation to human perception.

Metrological point of view, very very minor differences are measurable, which however does not justify a high price. What can happen: the signal might not arrive under certain circumstances. This case is easy to discover, the screen will remain black or individual lines will be. This is rather the exception, most cables with lengths under 3 meters are absolutely compatible. It is now however in the nearest shop to buy one of these cables, so you can see prices beyond the 50 at. Here, one can speak of bad tactics on HDMI cables. The reason for this is found quickly: the margins for these cables are significantly higher than the margins for an XBox, for example, or sometimes even of televisions.

Most of the dealers come with exciting reasons why you should buy a more expensive cable, which is ultimately no better than a cheap. Yet there are factors that should be considered? Yes, depending on the cable length, a slightly higher price is justified, because from 10 meters in length, some cables have the problem, the signal to carry far enough.
