How next year’s iPhones will finally catch up to Samsung where it matters

  How next year’s iPhones will finally catch up to Samsung where it matters For years, Samsung (and the rest of the Android flagship stable) have consistently trashed the iPhone when it comes to wireless speeds. According to a pair of recent reports, that’s all set to change in 2018. Apple is working with modem suppliers and redesigning the antennas to make sure that this aberration never happens again.

The legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm just went retro.

The same day that Apple filed a countersuit against Qualcomm, alleging that the chipmaker illegally used Apple battery management technology in Snapdragon processors that went into rival phones, Qualcomm filed three new complaints relating to 16 additional patents against Apple, including asking for the iPhone X to be banned.

But Qualcomm is bringing up a blast from the past in its complaint: the cult classic Palm Pre.

It turns out, Qualcomm in 2014 purchased several patents from Palm, including technology relating to its WebOS operating system and user interface. While the Palm Pre, which debuted in 2009 as the purported "iPhone killer," never met the initial hype, Qualcomm is bringing it back as a weapon against Apple.

The iPhone X will be delivered to your door in just a week

  The iPhone X will be delivered to your door in just a week A week after iPhone X shipping estimates dropped to 1-2 weeks, Apple has further improved delivery times for its best iPhone ever, practically guaranteeing iPhone users they’ll be able to buy the handset in time for Christmas. The current shipping estimate on Apple’s US online store is December 8th, meaning that Apple needs just a week to fulfill your order. You still can buy an iPhone X with same-day pickup in most Apple retail stores. And carriers may also have stock. But if you want to have it delivered to your door the good news is that you only have to wait about a week.

This is the latest wrinkle in the escalating fight between the two tech giants. Apple is one of the largest consumer technology companies in the world, with arguably the strongest brand in the industry, while Qualcomm is the world's largest supplier of mobile chips.

At the heart of this fight is a disagreement over how much Apple should pay Qualcomm for technology licenses. Apple believes the fee should be based on a percentage of the Qualcomm modem that goes into the iPhone, while the chipmaker believes the percentage should be based on the value of the entire phone.

Qualcomm alleges that the new iPhone X, which offers users the ability to bring up different windows of apps with a swipe, copies the interface used by the Pre. Qualcomm cites tech sites The Verge and TechCrunch's commentary that compares the iOS operating system to the Pre's "card-based multitasking system."

Other Palm patents involve the ability to autofocus the camera by touching the screen, a simplified single power button and the ability to answer a phone call with a text message.

The fresh complaints support Qualcomm's argument that Apple uses more of its technology than just the modem and that other aspects of the iPhone are helped by Qualcomm innovations.

Qualcomm declined to comment beyond the filings.

Palm has been on a curious journey to get to this point. The company was originally purchased by Hewlett-Packard, which failed to use WebOS as a platform for its own consumer products. LG ended up with WebOS as a platform for its televisions, while Chinese TV and phone maker TCL purchased the rights to use the Palm name.

Qualcomm made a USB-C DAC to show off its hi-fi audio tech .
If you're familiar with the name Qualcomm at all, you may know them best as the maker of Snapdragon processors that power many, if not most, of the market's leading smartphones.Of course, per Qualcomm's usual way of doing business, the company isn't selling these devices directly to consumers, but the DAC will be available to headphone makers "for 2018 products." And to be clear, Qualcomm already makes DACs and audio codecs, but this is its first USB-C Hi-Fi DAC.
