Google Laughs at the New iPhones

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Google‘s (GOOG_) management team is dancing around its new KitKat statue today, having dodged what could have been a competitive bullet or two from Apple (APPL) — possibly the new iWatch, iTV or even a new laptop. For heaven’s sake, they didn’t even announce a new iPad!

There was nothing new from Apple today that could stop Google’s market share march forward.

Another company that’s having a field day today: Nokia (NOK_). Apple’s new iPhone 5C is seemingly a flawless copy of the Nokia 620 that has already been available for several months.

Oh, and the price of that Nokia 620 is approximately half that of the iPhone 5C.

Fingerprint sensor? You mean the same thing I got on my Dell (DELL_) laptop in 2007? And on the Motorola (MSI_) Atrix Android smartphone in January 2011? If Apple’s latest claim to fame is to having copied a Dell 2007 laptop and a January 2011 Motorola smartphone, then Apple is in trouble.

Which is why Google is celebrating today.

Google’s Android and Chrome teams were already nicely ahead of Apple’s iOS team in terms of service integration, customization, ease of use and ability to ship a given grade of hardware at a much lower price.

Over the next few months, Google’s Android and Chrome teams seek to extend their existing lead over Apple. The company will introduce Android OS version 4.4 KitKat, a slew of new Chromebook laptops starting around $199, a Chromepad (touchscreen Chrome OS tablet) and next summer the first Chromephone (Chrome OS replacing Android on the smartphone). The pace of innovation at Google is simply faster than it is at Apple these days.

Even before Google unveils these new initiatives, look at how far Google is ahead of Apple in the smartphone race: At $549 unlocked for the iPhone 5C, it is $300 more than Google’s flagship smartphone, the LG Nexus 4, which sells for $249 SIM-unlocked, contract-free.

And the iPhone 5C only has only a four-inch screen, compared to the Nexus 4.7-inch screen. The Nexus also has a 768×1280 screen resolution, meaningfully higher than the iPhone 5C and 5S alike.

Dell’s potential savior, now shipping to testers, a $100 Android computer the size of a USB stick!

dell-usb-computer-opheliaDell is said to be working on a new device under the code-name “Project Ophelia,” and reports suggest it will essentially be an Android-powered computer on a USB stick.  The struggling PC vendor will apparently use Ophelia to help reinvent itself as company founder Michael Dell continues his efforts to take Dell private, and now the computer on a stick is one step closer to launching. According to a recent report from IDG News Service, Dell’s Project Ophelia “can turn any screen or display with an HDMI port into a PC, gaming machine, or streaming media player,” and it is now shipping to beta testers ahead of a public release scheduled for this fall. The device will be priced around $100, IDG claims.

Western Digital Buys Solid-State Drive Maker sTec for $340 Million

Western-DigitalThis will help Western Digital flourish in the enterprise market.

Western Digital is looking to dive deeper into the enterprise sector with an acquisition of solid-state drive maker sTec.

Western Digital has agreed to pay $340 million in cash ($6.85 per share) for sTec, and the acquisition is expected to be complete by the third or fourth quarter of this year.

More specifically, sTec will be acquired by Western Digital’s subsidiary HGST, which will use sTec’s portfolio to enhance its solid-state storage offerings and aid in future projects.

Western Digital has been making moves into the enterprise lately. Just last month, it introduced its Se series of hard drives for the enterprise, which run between $160 and $310. The new family is made for large-scale replicated environments and mid-sized network attached storage.

STec can certainly push Western Digital further in that direction, considering it was the first vendor to develop solid-state drives for the large-scale enterprise. But sTec couldn’t continue standing on its own two feet because it continually lost market share to the likes of Fusion-io Inc., Western Digital and Seagate Technology.

“Solid state storage in the enterprise will play an increasingly strategic role in the future of Western Digital,” said Steve Milligan, president and chief executive officer, Western Digital Corporation. “This acquisition is one more building block in our strategy to capitalize on the dramatic changes within the storage industry by investing in SSDs and other high-growth storage products.”

The Western Digital/sTec deal comes six months after sTec’s largest shareholder, Balch Hill Capital, advised the company to look into a sale.

Before that, sTec’s co-founder — Manouch Moshayedi — resigned as the company’s CEO in September 2012 due to insider trading charges. His brother, Mark Moshayedi, grabbed the title of interim CEO afterward.

STec shares increased 87 percent to $6.74 on NASDAQ this morning.

Apples Tries to Use Decade-Old Patents to Ban Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung-vs-AppleUnable to compete, the Cupertino company claims that Google and Samsung stole features from Siri.

Given that the massive Galaxy S IV doesn’t look too much like the much smaller 4-inch iPhone 5, Apple Inc. (AAPL) is having to turn to new and creative routes to try to convince federal judges and juries to ban its competitor’s flagship product.

(Ok for those who don’t know what a patent is, it is a number assign to something you invented and it gives you the right to protect your invention so that only you have the right to produce it, sell it and more.  But it has an expiration date, once it is expire ANYONE can profit from your idea legally. )
I. Apple Targets Samsung Again

Samsung is doing quite well with the Galaxy S IV, moving 10 million units in a mere four weeks.  Overall Samsung is outselling Apple 2-to-1 in unit sales.  In addition, Samsung is approaching Apple in profitability for the first time; while Apple has seen its own profit margins slide for the first time in years.

Thus it is perhaps expected that Apple would be return to its favorite tactic — looking to troll Samsung in court.

 

Its latest accusation is that Google Inc.’s (GOOG) Android “Google Now” service violates five invention claims that Apple has patented, with respect to its Siri voice search/assistant that it co-designed with Nuance Communications Inc. (NUAN).

The patents asserted are:

But wait, you say, what could patents filed at least four years before Siri was released (or ten or more years in most cases) have to do with Siri or Google Now?  And what in the world do graphical user interface patents (the latter two patents from the 90s) have to do with voice search?

II. Apple Looks to Use Ambiguous Decade-Old Patents Against Samsung

Apple contends that the trio of initial patents — which cover interaction with ambiguous data constructs — can be applied to Siri, Google Now, (or likely most other pieces of software).  And Apple says its equally ambiguous UI “inventions” are fair game, as Google Now is activated by an on-screen button at times, replacing the previous “Android Quick Search Box”.

According to a filing obtained by Florian Mueller, an anti-Google blogger paid by Google’s legal rivals, Apple writes, “The Galaxy S4 product practices many of the same claims already asserted by Apple… in the same way as the already-accused Samsung devices.”

Judge Paul S. Grewal of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California will rule on Apple’s request to tack on the patents at a June 25 hearing.

As Samsung and Apple wind up to a second trial, in which Apple is targeting dozens of Samsung smartphones and tablets for bans, the Cupertino company is watching its first $1.05B USD court win over Samsung start to unravel with a pair of patent invalidations by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  Apple also failed to secure any lasting bans on current Samsung products in that case.
