NBC Olympics The fanfare of Apple's (AAPL) announcement of two new iPads Tuesday quickly gave way to backlash from consumers who say the short life span of Apple products is becoming wearisome — and expensive.

Apple Fans Are Angry About The New iPads

Apple surprised fans by unveiling a revamped, full-size iPad, just seven months after releasing the third-generation iPad. The new, full-sized tablet was overshadowed by the star of the event — the iPad Mini — but not overlooked by owners of what had been the most up-to-date iPad. Many were irked that they had just dropped $500 on what they thought was a cutting-edge tablet, only to watch it fall to near obsolescence Tuesday.

SquareTrade: Americans Have Spent Nearly $6B On iPhone Repair And Replacement Since 2007

That includes the cost of repairs, replacement iPhones, and insurance deductibles for plans like the warranties SquareTrade offers, and in large part, costs incurred are a result of accidental damage, more so than loss or theft. The survey claims that just during the past year, more than 30 percent of iPhone owners have damaged their device, and repeat occurrences are fairly common: 17 percent have damaged their devices more than once. Younger iPhone owners tend to be the most accident-prone, according to the results, with one in two iPhone users 35 or under experiencing some kind of accident with their devices.

Työsuhdekeksintöä koskeva riitely matkapuhelinjätti Nokiaa vastaan tuli yhtiön entiselle työntekijälle todella kalliiksi.

Ex-työntekijä vaati Nokialta miljardeja - joutui itse maksajaksi

Tappelu Nokiaa vastaan liittyi mobiilimaksamista koskevaan keksintöön, jota ex-työntekijä luonnehti uraauurtavaksi. Oikeus kuitenkin katsoi, että mobiilimaksaminen oli tunnettu tekniikka, kun mies jätti asiasta patenttihakemuksen vuonna 1995. Ex-työntekijä vaati Nokialta työsuhdekeksintö- ja muina korvauksina yli kahta miljardia euroa. Hän saikin Helsingin hovioikeudessa korvauksia, mutta vaivaiset 2000 euroa yhden suomalaisen patentin osalta. Sen sijaan mies joutuu maksamaan Nokian oikeudenkäyntikuluja käräjä- ja hovioikeudessa liki 450000 euroa.

Nokian verot Suomeen: 0,25 % Nokia maksoi vuonna 2010 Suomeen veroa noin 0,25 prosenttia verotettavasta tulostaan, selviää verohallinnon julkisista tiedoista.

Nokian verot Suomeen: 0,25 %

Yhtiön verotettavat tulot olivat verohallinnon mukaan noin 625 miljoonaa euroa. Suomeen maksettujen verojen määrä oli vain noin 1,6 miljoonaa euroa, jolloin veroprosentiksi muodostuu noin 0,25. Yhteisöverotaso on Suomessa 26 prosenttia yhteisön verotettavasta tulosta. Nokian pieni veroprosentti selittynee osaltaan sillä, että yhtiö maksaa ulkomaille entistä suuremman osan veroistaan, mikä hyvitetään Suomen verotuksessa.

Advertisements Reports coming out of Korea today are suggesting that Samsung Displays have already taken the internal decision to terminate an ongoing contract with Apple in a move which means that the company will no longer supply the Cupertino-based giants with Liquid Crystal Display panels for their mobile devices.

Samsung Will Stop Providing LCD Panels To Apple As Of 2013

Although Apple and Samsung have been long-term corporate partners, the rivalry that has been growing between the two companies has been intensifying of late with the relationship eventually reaching meltdown. Samsung Displays have benefitted from being one of the major components suppliers to Apple over the last few years, but as Apple makes its move to stiffen up their supply chains and squeeze higher profits out of their processes; it looks like Samsung have been caught in the crossfire. Nokia paljastaa: Näin syntyi Lumia-nimi. Nokia on paljastanut uusien Windows-puhelimiensa Lumia-nimen taustan ja syntyhistorian. Leena Laaksoleena.laakso@kauppalehti.fi+358-10 665 2439 Tiedätkö asiasta enemmän? Microsoft kampittaa nyt Applea pilvessä -   Talouselämä. It-jätti Microsoft sulauttaa tiedostojen tallennus- ja jakopalvelu SkyDriven Windows 8 -käyttöjärjestelmäänsä, yhtiö kertoo blogissaan. Uuden SkyDriven avulla käyttäjät pystyvät synkronoimaan asetuksensa ja tärkeimmät tiedostonsa eri laitteiden välillä.

Viime viikolla Apple esitteli OS X -käyttöjärjestelmänsä seuraava versiota, joka niin ikään sisältää Applen tallennuspalvelu iCloudin. Microsoft on laittanut Applea paremmaksi: yhtiö tarjoaa 25 gigatavua ilmaista tallennustilaa pilvipalveluunsa. Applen ilmainen tallennustila rajoittuu 5 gigatavuun. Tosin käyttäjän Photo Stream -valokuvat, iTunesin musiikkikirjasto, sovellukset ja iBooks-sähkökirjat eivät syö tilaa Applen iCloudista.

Microsoftin antamien tietojen mukaan sen tiedostojenjakopalvelu muistuttaa hyvin paljon Dropboxia, jossa käyttäjät voivat jakaa tiedostoja ja kansioitaan keskenään.
