Steve Wozniak doesn't like the Samsung vs. Apple ruling

Just when you thought the Apple vs. Samsung stories had stopped for a while you get one more. This week Steve Wozniak (the guy who co-founded Apple) has said that he doesn't agree with the Samsung vs. Apple ruling in which a judge awarded Apple over 1 Billion dollars in damages. He doesn't figure it will stick and will be overturned and doesn't agree with it and wished they could all just get along for the sake of innovation. Its always interesting to hear what Wozniak has to say since he usually speaks his mind even if it means disagreeing with the company that he started. TNW has the full story.

In fact, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak hates the result, doesn’t agree with it, and thinks it will be overruled. Samsung will of course appeal, and this case will go back and forth for months still, but Wozniak just wishes everyone could get along.

“I hate it,” Wozniak told Bloomberg in Shanghai today, referring to the patent battle. “I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it — very small things I don’t really call that innovative. I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.”

12 things IT people hate to hear

Since its a slow news day I thought I might as well post up an article over at InfoWorld about the "top 12 things IT people dread hearing". Chances are good if you work in IT you've heard all of these before and probably will agree with them. Nothing like a good "My computer is broken" call followed by "I think its really broken and probably need a new one" on a Friday afternoon to remind you why you love IT...

Working on an IT help desk can feel like an endless case of déjà vu. Let's face it: Computer users are damn predictable. If you've heard a problem once, you've heard it a thousand times before.

Some things, though, have been said so many times that they've practically become help desk clichés -- and the very sound of them is enough to make any IT pro want to smack his or her head with the nearest blunt object.

iPhone 5 preorders sold out

If you were waiting to preorder a new iPhone 5 in the USA you've waited too long, they have already sold out. Preorders started yesterday and within about an hour they were already sold out so you will now have to wait. Even though the iPhone 5 didn't impress everyone as much as previous models might have it still shows the huge fan base Apple has amassed over the iPhone. BGR has the full story.

We recently wrote that following all the leaks and rumors leading up to the iPhone 5 unveiling, the only thing more predictable than the new iPhone itself was people’s reactions to it. Well, the only thing even more predictable than response to the iPhone 5 was the fact that preorders would sell out quickly. Apple made preorders of its new iPhone available on at 3:01 a.m. EDT, 12:01 a.m. PDT and in less than one hour, the company’s initial stock of new iPhones for Verizon Wireless (VZ), AT&T and Sprint was depleted. 

First Look: iPhone 5

Now that the iPhone 5 has been announced and everyone is excited to get their hands on it, the Jimmy Kimmel show decided to get peoples reaction to the new iPhone 5. The only problem with their plan was that they didn't have any iPhone 5's so they just gave people the iPhone 4S and told them it was the iPhone 5, hilariousness ensues..

Farewell Wii

With the upcoming release of the Wii U and Nintendo announcing they will stop producing games for the Wii it is official that the Nintendo Wii is a dead platform. While maybe not the most powerful console, it did find a niche market and had some pretty fun games and was doing things that no one else was doing at the time. Kotaku takes a look back at the Wii and says a final farewell.

I will not speak ill of the Nintendo Wii, even though others have done so for years.

My Wii was a very good gaming console. A weird one, yes. It somehow managed to be popular while remaining niche. Its games were fun, but, often a bit ugly. Its best games came out in the middle of its lifespan, not at the end. And it failed to do many of the things it was supposed to do, due to limits of technology or imagination or both.

Go Daddy: We Weren't Hacked!

Good news for Go Daddy customers, it looks like the downtime they suffered recently wasn't due to being "hacked". Turns out Go Daddy had some internal network events that took them down which doesn't give their customers much confidence but its definitely better than having all of your info compromised. Go Daddy's press release can be read over here for more details.

Yesterday, and many of our customers experienced intermittent service outages starting shortly after 10 a.m. PDT. Service was fully restored by 4 p.m. PDT.

The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.

Apple iPhone 5 Unveiled

Just in case you haven't heard the news already (which would be hard to believe since its everywhere), the iPhone 5 was unveiled yesterday. As expected, the iPhone 5 will feature a bigger (taller) screen and is now 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the previous version. The iPhone 5 will come in 16, 32, and 64 GB versions. BBC News has more details.

The device's new size allows it to display an extra row of app icons on its home screen.

The firm said it was 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S. However, it does not feature an NFC (near field communication) chip to allow it to make touchless payments.
