Court of Appeals Lifts Galaxy Nexus Sales Ban
Samsung was given temporary permission to resume sales of the Galaxy Nexus Friday after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit stayed an earlier decision to ban the device. The U.S. appeals court has decided to review Apple's arguments for the ban, which was put in place by District Court Judge Lucy Koh ahead of the July 30 trial between the two companies. The temporary sales injunction granted by Koh was a rare decision. Apple has until July 12 to respond to the U.S. Court of Appeals' decision to lift the ban. Apple and Samsung are entwined in a protracted series of legal battles around the globe over smartphone patents.

Qualcomm this week launched the "Snapdragon 865 and 765 Modular Platforms", which are pre-engineered and pre-certified circuit boards that include most of the critical components for a high-end 5G phone (or equivalent cellular device.) As phones have become more sophisticated and refined, the costs of developing a competitive high-end phone have become prohibitive for all but the largest companies. This new program from Qualcomm aims to level that playing field for smaller companies.

Facebook and Ray-Ban have collaborated to create Ray-Ban Stories, "smart" glasses similar to the Spectacles 3 from Snap. Ray-Ban Stories feature dual 5-megapixel cameras that capture photos with depth as well as videos up to 30 seconds.
The FCC has now granted Verizon, US Cellular, and T-Mobile permission to expand their 4G network capacity by temporarily using radio frequencies that are licensed to other companies, but had been sitting unused prior to the current pandemic. The unusual move by the FCC will help support the unprecedented number of people suddenly using wireless broadband to operate from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A US appeals court has issued a new ruling declaring that Customs and Border Protection agents can conduct both basic and "advanced" searches of electronic devices at US borders without needing a warrant nor reasonable suspicion. The new ruling overturns a district court decision from January 2020 that ruled such searches unconstitutional.
Let's make this perfectly clear: Apple does NOT lose sales because of search bars on home screens, or slide to unlock interfaces.
I think it's asinine that you can patient some of the things that are patented - it actually seems like a shady way of getting money out of people/companies.
Find me one person in this world who literally was swayed away from the iPhone due to the trivial things Apple claims - Yes, they may be patient infringements - but they shouldn't be allowed to even patient those things to begin with.
