Apple elects not to help bankroll patent buyer Intellectual Ventures

Patent buyer Intellectual Ventures can count Microsoft and Sony among its latest investors, but previous participants Apple and Intel aren't so in. Intellectual Ventures has previously taken substantial investments from many of the giants of the tech industry, and took that money to buy up patents and then offer a significantly reduced licensing fee to its investors for those patents. Those that didn't opt in to Intellectual Ventures' investment scheme could instead find themselves in the cross-hairs of a patent litigation suit if there was the slightest whiff of infringement. All of this even though Intellectual Ventures doesn't make anything or even patent things itself. You might call them a patent troll, and according to Reuters both Apple and Intel (companies with plenty of cash on hand) have decided that the cost-benefit analysis of additional investment wasn't in their favor.

Shocker: Samsung obfuscated dismal tablet sales

Shocker: Samsung obfuscated dismal tablet sales

A while back there was some confusion over Samsung's "shipped" vs. "sold" numbers for their then-new Galaxy Tab tablet. Samsung, like most companies that aren't Apple, doesn't regularly report numbers. Some "analysts" and "oulets" are more concerned with pushing an agenda or grabbing sensational headlines than figuring out the actual numbers.
