Jury orders Samsung to pay $1b in damages to Apple

"Late Friday, a US jury finally returned a verdict in the month long trial and Cupertino should be thrilled by the outcome. The court ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages. What’s more, the jury backed nearly all Apple claims. Apple welcomed the verdict, but also announced that it would petition the court to triple the damages, as it had originally asked for $2.7 billion in damages.

Samsung SH-B123L 12X BD-Rom/DVD Writer

"Today for review I’ve got another Samsung product, it’s another optical drive, but it’s one that goes in your computer. Specifically it’s the SH-B123L 12X BD-Rom/DVD Writer, or it’s a Blu-Ray drive with DVD writer functionality as well. This drive at 12X is supposedly one of the fastest in production right now, making it rather special. the drive itself has a unique look to it that I like, it’s not cluttered with logos and badges like other drives, and the drive tray front is actually mirrored with the Blu-Ray logo on it.

Samsung 20nm Flash Memory Price War

Samsung has developed a 20nm process for manufacturing NAND flash memory chips--leapfrogging the 25nm process unveiled less than three months ago by IMFT, the joint venture between Intel and Micron. Intel and Micron may be forced to engage in a flash memory price war after all.The new Samsung flash process enables the South Korean chip manufacturer to develop 34 gigabit, or four gigabyte, MLC (multi-level cell) NAND flash memory chips. New SD cards built with the 20nm process are expected by the end of this year in capacities ranging from 4Gb to 64Gb.

Samsung "Green" DDR3

DDR3 DRAM has just overtaken DDR2 as the predominant memory technology used in today's new computers. Newer RAM has traditionally been more expensive than previous generations, but DDR3 pricing has gone down over the last few years due to mass production and die shrinks to smaller process nodes. Not only does this result in price cuts, but also lower power consumption and higher possible speeds.

Samsung just started producing DDR3 on its 40nm process last year, but is already working on its newest generational node.

Samsung Explains Bada OS Plans

Samsung's new Bada smartphone platform will support multiple Web browsers, social networking, and multitouch screens, Samsung executives explained at a launch event in London on Tuesday. But there are still many painful questions about this nascent smartphone OS - including whether it will ever come to U.S. phones.

"We are opening a new era of smartphones for everyone by deploying the Bada platform in a massive number of handsets," Samsung EVP Hosoo Lee said.

Unlaunched Atom-smasher shows up in Samsung X series laptops

Samsung announced its new X series of laptops this morning, and the company let a detail slip about the X120 portable that's less trivial than it may initially sound: the thin portable eschews Intel's netbook-oriented Atom line in favor of a new ultra-low-voltage (ULV) processor from Intel. The SU4100 ULV processor and its siblings will formally launch later this month and have been getting press recently under the internal Intel acronym CULV (for consumer ULV).
