It seems like the most frequent words said in 2012 were: "Well, then I'll sue you!" Some of these cases were even held down under, in Australia's court rooms. We bring you the biggest Aussie face offs of 2012. 1. Apple vs. Samsung Samsung and Apple sued each other in so many countries that you'd have to take a break for a breath to list them all. But Australia became one of the major battlegrounds, with Justices Annabelle Bennett, John Dowsett, Lindsay Foster, David Yates and even the High Court all weighing in on the cases. First, Apple went to court looking to ban Samsung's Galaxy 10.1 tablet, saying that the device infringed on its patents. Then Samsung fired back with a case saying that iPhones above the 3GS infringed on its patents. Apple was initially granted its wish, with Samsung's devices being banned from Australian shelves. But Samsung appealed, and a panel of judges overturned the preliminary injunction. Apple tried to take the case to the High Court, but the High Court … [Read more...] about 2011: a year of Aussie legal wrangles
The jobseekers of today are becoming more technologically aware of the blurred divide between a physical identity and its online counterpart, but it seems that changing one's privacy settings to bar the prying eyes of potential employers now is not enough.

As if Facebook's introduction of its timeline feature wasn't enough, which blasted skeletons out of many a user's cupboard with the force of a sudden explosion, now it is not simply the new partner in your life who can see the drunken Facebook status you left in relation to the ex four years ago before frantic deletion -- but potentially a future employer. Do you have an image or two of yourself being carried home after a heavy night? You may want to consider changing your name and perhaps denying you have a Facebook account -- especially as the temptation of so much personal information is now an irresistible lure … [Read more...] about Employer vs Facebook: Is there a point to privacy settings?
Crossovers are all the rage nowadays, but the Honda CR-V was doing it long before the segment became “cool.” More than 20 years after its debut as a concept in 1995, Honda’s midrange utility vehicle is still going strong. In fact, the Honda CR-V was the best-selling vehicle in 2016 that wasn’t a pickup truck or a four-door sedan. The 357,335 CR-Vs sold in the U.S. that year place the popular crossover just behind brand mate Honda Civic, the third best-selling car.Honda introduced the new fifth-generation CR-V in 2017, so the engines and transmissions carry over for the 2018 model year.All Honda CR-V models have four-cylinder in-line engines with direct fuel injection and a drive-by-wire throttle system. The CR-V LX is the only model that comes without a turbocharger. The LX’s 2.4-liter 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC motor produces 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 RPM. The EX, EX-L, and Touring models all have a 1.5-liter, … [Read more...] about Here’s everything you need to know about the 2018 Honda CR-V
IntroductionThe Home Entertainment Show was held again in New York City at the Hilton from April 28th through May 1st. It?s comprised of dealers and manufacturers alike, showing off their wares in hotel rooms and suites. This is one of the few consumer electronics shows open to the public, and its goal is to reflect the current state of home entertainment products including high definition TV, high-resolution video, and multi-channel surround sound. Unlike other CE shows, HES, which is sponsored by Primedia, features numerous esoteric audio companies along with mainstream brands like HP, Polk, RCA, Runco, Samsung, and Yamaha. Surprisingly, several new 1080p HDTVs were introduced this year in addition to some really slick (if expensive) audiophile-like products. In fact, there were more than 250 brands on four floors of the Hilton. Also, there were several technology seminars presided over by various CE journalists, covering different aspects of … [Read more...] about 2005 Home Entertainment Show
