    An Australian judge has called the Samsung's latest lawsuit against Apple "ridiculous", and says the latest lawsuit, where Samsung claims Apple has infringed on their patents covering data transmission over 3G, might be better settled in mediation, instead of in the courts.

    Apple's fix for the in-app-purchase flaw on iOS seems to have worked, and now the Russian developer behind the exploits has turned his attention to the Mac. The Mac version of the flaw is still vulnerable to the exploit, claiming "it's good that OS X is open."

    When does a rumour become confirmed? Note: it's not when Reuters says it is, it's when Apple release an iPhone with whatever they're claiming. In any case, I think we've heard enough about the smaller dock connector and relocated headphone jack to accept it as truth by now, don't you?

    The company behind the ZFS on OS X project, Ten's Complement, were recently acquired by GreenBytes, an enterprise storage company. But a GreenBytes sponsor has said that ZFS on OS X is safe: unlike some other acquisitions we've seen this week, it'll continue to be actively worked on.

    Ars Technica reviews the iCade Mobile, from the same company that built the iCade arcade cabinet for the iPad. The Mobile is designed for, uh, your mobile, and it adds hardware buttons to iPhone gaming *but it's not without flaws, as the review details.

    A tip from OS X daily to hide anything in your ~/Library folder, as apparently, it isn't indexed by Spotlight. nor usually visible unless you explicitly access the Library folder.
