Smartflash LLC aims to make Apple pay for using the patent licensing firm's technology without permission in devices not be included in the previous case, such as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the iPad Air 2. The trial covered older Apple devices. On Tuesday, a jury in federal court in Tyler, Texas found that Apple willfully violated three Smartflash patents with devices that use its iTunes software.

A Google search page is reflected in sunglasses in this photo illustration taken in Brussels(Reuters) - Google Inc said it will allow some Google Play users to see advertisements for apps in the coming weeks. Users will see ads from a pilot group of app developers who are already running ads on Google search, the company said in a blog post. Google's advertising revenue has come under pressure as more consumers access its services on smartphones and tablets, where ad rates are typically lower. The growing popularity of mobile devices has made Facebook Inc a greater threat in the battle for advertisers.

A pro-net neutrality Internet activist attends a rally in the neighborhood where U.S. Barack Obama attended a fundraiser in Los AngelesBy Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators on Thursday approved the strictest-ever rules on Internet providers, who in turn pledged to battle the new restrictions in the courts and Congress, saying they would discourage investment and stifle innovation. Experts expect the industry to seek a stay of the rules, first at the FCC and then in courts, though the chances for success of such an appeal is unclear. It culminated in the FCC receiving a record 4 million comments and a call from President Barack Obama to adopt the strongest rules possible. In the past, broadband was classified as a more lightly regulated "information service," which factored into a federal court's rejection of the FCC's previous set of rules in January 2014.

An Apple logo is seen during Black Friday in San FranciscoApple Inc sent out invitations for a media event in San Francisco on March 9, about one month before the much-anticipated launch of the new Apple Watch. Chief Executive Tim Cook said last month that the company plans to launch the smartwatch in April. The watch, which will let consumers check their email, pay for goods at retail stores and monitor personal health information, represents Apple's first major new product introduction since the 2010 launch of the iPad. Shares of Apple were up 88 cents at $129.67 on Thursday.

The sign hanging outside the Qualcomm booth is seen at the International Consumer Electronics show (CES) in Las VegasBy Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Mobile chipmaker Qualcomm wants wireless carriers to set up new technology that would offer cellphone users better reception in places like subway tunnels and shopping malls. The San Diego, California company said on Thursday it will start selling components this year featuring LTE technology adapted for a smaller scale than traditional cellphone base stations mounted on metal towers bristling with antennas and other electronics. LTE, or Long-Term Evolution, is the increasingly common modem technology that cellphones use to communicate with carrier networks. The newer "LTE Unlicensed", or LTE-U, adapts that technology to be used over short distances by sharing radio spectrum that is used by WiFi.

A new Snowden leak a few days ago revealed that the NSA and GCHQ conducted a complex hack operation that focused on obtaining the secure encryption keys that protect mobile communications in devices with SIM cards. A subsequent report revealed that the goal of spy agencies might have been a lot bigger, as they may have been hunting for other security keys that would let them deploy spyware on any mobile device with a SIM card inside, and users would have no idea that anything had happened. FROM EARLIER: Gemalto confirms hack, but denies massive SIM keys theft Gemalto acknowledged the hack, but downplayed it, saying it couldn’t have resulted in a mass-theft of SIM card keys. The company also said that

We’re just hours away from the third season of House of Cards touching down on Netflix, which means it’s probably too late to catch up on the first two seasons.

The Blade Runner sequel has a director, and it's not Ridley ScottWe knew that Ridley Scott wasn't planning on directing the sequel to his 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner, and now it's official. According to The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, Denis Villeneuve is in talks to direct Harrison Ford in the new film. If you don't know Villeneuve's name, you should: he's the filmmaker behind both Prisoners and Enemy, two films from 2013 that demonstrated a keen ability to generate tension, not to mention eliciting incredibly strong performances from his actors. The as-of-yet untitled sequel to Blade Runner is said to take place several decades after Rick Deckard and Roy Batty battled it out in the original film, and while Scott won't be directing his presence should be felt. He's producing the film and came up with the story alongside original co-writer Hampton Fancher (Fancher is writing the new installment alongside Green Lantern and Smallville writer Michael Green).

Daily Roundup: Net neutrality wins, digital brothels and more!

With the Apple Watch launch coming in April, now is the time for the company to start turning up its ad campaign for the new device. Ad Age has snagged some pictures of the first Apple Watch magazine ads that are slated to appear in the March Issue of Vogue and they not surprisingly take a minimalist tack for showing off Apple’s first wearable computer. FROM EARLIER: Tim Cook reportedly spills new key details about the Apple Watch This ad, for example, shows off an 18-karat gold Apple Watch that’s sporting a white sport band. The watch itself is front and center with copious amounts of white space surrounding it along with a tiny amount of text letting people know what

That was fast. Three years ago, Pebble took Kickstarter by storm with its first customizable watch. The project broke every conceivable crowdfunding record, and until last summer, it was the most funded project in Kickstarter’s short history.

(Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Thursday set new rules to regulate Internet providers more heavily. Following are some details about the concept of net neutrality and the FCC's work to regulate Internet traffic: WHAT IS NET NEUTRALITY? Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers should treat all traffic on their networks equally. The FCC, which regulates U.S. cable and other companies that provide broadband services, has tackled net neutrality rules several times.
To call Warren Buffett a successful investor would be a gross understatement. The man who owns nearly 10% of Coca-Cola and is worth nearly $73 billion is, quite literally, the most successful investor in history. Not surprisingly, investors have long looked to Buffett for even the tiniest morsel of investment advice. Don’t Miss: I lost 50 lbs in 3 months – here’s how technology helped me What is somewhat surprising is that Buffett, still on top of his game at 84 years old, has a diet of a 6 year old, or perhaps, a video game playing teenager. In a recent interview with Fortune, Buffett divulged that he drinks five cans of coke a day. “If I eat 2,700 calories a day,

YouTube completely changed the way we consume media, and it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the Google owned property was the third most visited website in all of 2014. Whether or not you’re looking for videos of historical political debates or clips of thrill seekers tossing themselves off of buildings, YouTube has every and any type of video one can possibly think of. As the third most popular website in the world with over 1 billion users per month, one would think that that YouTube, which Google acquired in November of 2006, would be a huge moneymaker for the search giant. The reality isn’t quite as rosy. Related: The 10 most expensive acquisitions Google ever made The
