Instagram Introduces Photo and Video Sharing

During a press event held in New York,  Instagram announced a new sharing feature called Instagram Direct. This will allow users to share images and videos to other users privately. I just received the update and I must say, I am pretty impressed with this new feature.

In this very awesome video that I found on 9to5mac, Instagram showcase’s its new feature and how simple you can send direct photo or video privately to anyone you please.

Apple rewarded additional $290 million from Samsung

There is no question why Steve Jobs despised and hated Samsung. They practically stole Apples ideas and made it their own. The move Samsung made was wrong and is costing them millions. The picture below is a slide used during the trial which compares the phones Samsung made before and after the iPhone.

Apple was previously awarded  $1 billion in damages from Samsung in the closely watched patent trial just last summer. Apparently, the judge in the first case ruled $450 million of the $1 billion was miscalculated, causing a retrial.  Apple, reinstated $380 million in vacated damages with Samsung arguing they should only be entitled to $52 million.

The ruling is yet another victory for Apple in this “thermonuclear war” against Google’s Android operating system and their manufacturing partners.
