Get ready for hurricane season with CaneCast

With the hurricane season upon us, you might be looking for a way to get detailed information about the impact a storm may have on you. Fear not: there are plenty of hurricane apps for the iPhone. Some are from newspapers and TV stations rebranding National Weather Service info, while others have unique features that are worthy of note.

One app I personally like is CaneCast Hurricane Forecaster. It’s a US$0.99 app for the iPhone that allows you to monitor current storms, get their exact position in relation to your location, provides a storm track and advises you what the forecast storm classification is at each point on its track…

Samsung guilty on dozens of patent infringements vs AppleThis trial is what might be the most important of the set of Apple vs Samsung courtroom sessions that’ve been going on around the world for several months. Another verdict was reached this week in South Korea where the law made it clear that both parties had done wrong, the iPhone, the iPad, the Galaxy S II, and the Galaxy S all being banned from sale in the country effective immediately.

Samsung’s damages decrease slightly as Koh sets date for injunction hearingSamsung took a pretty major blow when the jury in its patent case against Apple delivered their verdict today. Apple was awarded damages exceeding $1 billion, and even though that isn’t as much as the iPhone maker was looking for, it’s still a pretty hefty amount for Samsung to have to pay. However, after the verdict was delivered, there were a couple of inconsistencies the jury had to address. In their verdict, the jurors awarded Apple damages for the Samsung Intercept’s infringement on the company’s ’915 utility patent, while it was also awarded damages for the Galaxy Tab 10…

Viewing Wii U through Apple-centric eyes

I had the opportunity to preview the Wii U last night at a Nintendo special event. Bold and bright, with flashing lights and helpful attendants, the preview was designed to build anticipation for the unit’s upcoming debut.

Does the age of Apple TV and iPad/iPhone AirPlay integration herald a challenge to traditional consoles? Apparently so, as the new Wii U controller seems highly influenced by tablets.

The Wii U’s large on-board screen offers a portable gaming solution that feels like the offspring that might occur if a Wiimote ran away to Vegas to marry an iPad…

Report: Freeverse co-founders leave the company

Freeverse is a classic name in the Mac gaming field: The New York-based developer was one of the world’s biggest indie Mac game developers since long before the App Store existed or the iPhone was announced, releasing big titles like Wingnuts, Horde of Orcs and more. When the iPhone and its apps arrived, Freeverse got caught up in that same market, and was eventually acquired by mobile gaming startup Ngmoco, which itself was later acquired by a giant Japanese social gaming network. Freeverse was one of the biggest pillars of Mac gaming back in the day, and had some of the best early hits on the App Store…

iPhone and iPad banned in South Korea with Samsung GSIIIn one of the more extreme case endings we’ve seen thus far in the near-global mobile patent court battle between Apple and Samsung, South Korea has banned nearly every device up for trial. The Seoul Central District Court has ruled that both Samsung and Apple must remove major products such as the Galaxy S II and the iPhone 4 from the market immediately. Samsung sued Apple to begin this case back in April for telecommunications standards patents and Apple responded by counter-suing for mobile device interface patents in its iPhone and iPad…
