The Patent War Between Apple and Samsung [Infographic]

If you’re a tech enthusiast or either an Apple or Samsung power user, then you probably know about the war going on between them. It started last year when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which very much looked like the iPad and that’s when it all started. Apple tried and succeeded blocking sales of Samsung products in various countries and that didn’t make the latter very happy. Then there was the revenge.

Ever since then, the war hasn’t stopped and it keeps getting worse. In the beginning, it was Apple who was winning, but now it’s Samsung who’s got some wins in it’s pocket. Apple uses lots of parts manufactured by Samsung, which gives the latter a lot of profit, so it’s not likely that this will keep going on forever. They need each other, but they also need to safeguard their patents. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the following Infographic made by Online MBA Guide will help you catch up.

 Samsung even released ads and paperwork to make Apple and it’s users look bad, which actually gave Samsung bad rep. Looks like this patent war between the two will keep on going till the judges and the companies get tired and someone calls truce. There are a lot of more courtroom visits left for both the companies, and I really hope that they come to a decision before things get bad.

Just yesterday, some new person went over to Twitter and signed up and did not even realize that he/she helped Twitter reach the 200 million milestone. That’s not the biggest news that I’m sharing with you guys, there’s something more astonishing. Since, Twitter’s launch way back in 2006, it has had a tremendously fast growth that no one expected. It’s not just the growth that amuses everybody, it’s the fact that Twitter revolutionized the way we share things. When Twitter first started out, people weren’t really sure if they could survive with that 140 letters word limit, but they have and they will continue to.

The Infographic below will show you what exactly Twitter is all about, it’s growth and the unforgettable and amazing Timeline of it’s existence.

That’s the amazing story of Twitter’s success and how it got to 350 Billion tweets being shared every single day. That’s something isn’t it? If you go through the whole thing, you’ll notice that Twitter has even played an important role in sharing news, sometimes even being the first to break news. It has also helped the public during bad times, sometimes being the only source of communication.

If  you’re not on Twitter, you should probably go and join right now.
