    Samsung Adds iPhone 5 to Apple Lawsuit, Patent Madness Continues

    Samsung threatened that they would sue Apple over the iPhone 5, and now they've gone ahead and followed through with it. They've filed an amendment to have the iPhone 5 added to their already existing suit against Apple. At this point, it's all just posturing and such, but it's still amusing to see Samsung attempt to go after every little nook and cranny that they can. Any company might do the same if they were hit with a verdict that required them to pay over a billion dollars.

    How to Build an iPhone 5 Dock for $1 (Provided You Already Own a Bunch of Power Tools)

    There are problems with the iPhone 5 that are not involved with the ludicrously bad, phone-breaking revision to the map application. In addition to that completely baffling misstep, there are no docks yet that accommodate the iPhone 5 and its new Lightning connector. Unlike the lack of a map function that is elegantly and simply built into your phone, there is something you can do about this the lack of a dock! Casey Neistat shows you how to build an iPhone 5 dock out of just a couple of scraps of plywood. It is a very easy thing you can do if, like Neistat, you have quite the well-appointed workshop already.

    iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III Drop Test

    It's that time of year again, when Apple releases a new device and it and its rival device have to be dropped on a hard surface from terrifying heights. You know, so we learn not to drop our expensive, delicate pocket computers, because we don't know not to do that before seeing the extent of the damage. With the iPhone 5 shipping today, it's probably best to get this drop test out of the way so you can be sufficiently scared of dropping your new expensive toy. However, compared to last generation's iPhone 4S vs. the Samsung Galaxy S II drop test, this test yields some surprising results.

    Yahoo! Ditches BlackBerry, Offers Variety of Phones to Employees

    In their continuing bid to remain relevant, Yahoo! is apparently going to replace the corporate phones of all their employees. The old mainstays, BlackBerry devices, will be replaced by their much cooler cousins -- like the iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920. Sure, this might come off as another stab at RIM, but really it's just Yahoo! attempting to get with the times.

    New Samsung Ad Reveals They’re Still Pissed About Owing Apple a Billion Bucks

    Last month a jury ruled that Samsung owes Apple over one billion dollars for infringing on a set of patents with many of their smartphone designs. The trial may be finished, but the struggle between the two companies is far from over: Samsung will undoubtedly appeal the court's decision, Apple will file injunctions against every Samsung phone they can, and the two companies will spend years and millions of dollars doing so. Showing the public that they're in this fight for the long haul (because we really thought they were just going to pay up) Samsung released a new anti-Apple ad comparing the specs of the newly-announced iPhone 5 and Samsung's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3.
