Google and Samsung postpone launch out of respect for Steve Jobs

Google and Samsung are delaying their CTIA launch event, widely expected to involve the introduction of their next generation Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS, and Nexus Prime handset, in deference to the recent passing of Steve Jobs.

Classy.

Well, okay, not copying -- more like maintaining the design elements were commonplace in pop culture, especially science fiction. One of the ways to invalidate a patent is to prove prior art -- that someone had the idea before the company who was awarded the patent.

Apple having issues with LGD panels used in iPad 2?

LGD, the leading supplier of LCD panels, appears to be having some manufacturing issues when it comes to the 9.7" LCD panels that are used in the iPad 2. After receiving several defective units, Apple has reportedly pulled them until the issue can be sorted out.

LGD fell 1 million units short of their projected estimate of panel shipments. These defective units could have a lot to do with that. It will no doubt continue affecting them until the issue is resolved.
