Leave The Weight Of The World Behind With Samsung Gear VR!

Samsung MelbourneAs long as computers have been connecting to each other through cables and wires, people have dreamed of Virtual Reality. Why not? Who doesn’t want to know what it’s like to fly, or be someone else for a little while?

Movies have been predicting the rise of VR since the ‘90s, when films like The Matrix or 1995’s Strange Days set our imaginations on fire with the possibilities. Would it be a new Golden Age or the beginning of the end? We’re about to find out, as Samsung is rolling out their first VR headset, the Samsung Gear VR

Introducing The Samsung Gear VR

The Samsung Gear VR has been a firm fan favorite since its debut in 2014. The website stated “There’s currently no better way to get started with virtual reality.”

If you own a Samsung phone in Melbourne, the Samsung Gear VR is your best best to see what the exciting world of virtual reality is all about.

The premise is simple, especially if you’ve seen any of those ‘90s cyberpunk films. A pair of wraparound shades provides a panoramic view, while high-definition headphones provide a deep 360-degree listening experience. It’s a fully immersive experience.

Entertainment companies are already starting to take advantage of the format to create complete imaginary worlds, full of vibrant colors and otherworldly sounds. 2015’s breakout hit The Martian will be unleashed in a virtual reality edition for the Samsung Gear in 2016, transporting the audience to the dusty red planet instantaneously, saving us the arduous 300 day journey.

It should hopefully be a less distressing experience than 2014’s Oculus, one of the first films to take advantage of the Oculus Rift technology on which the Samsung Gear is based.

The only thing for certain, at this point, is that we’re heading into a strange new world of media, and Samsung is at the vanguard.

Samsung To Pay $548 Million To Apple In Ongoing Patent Dispute

Samsung has finally agreed to settle up with Apple, after losing the appellate phase of a lengthy patent trial.

According to a court report filed on December 3, Samsung will pay the sum once Apple files an invoice. Payment is expected by December 14, at the latest. Apple will withdraw their motion to enforce the court’s decision.

The $548 million settlement was whittled down from the initial fine of $930 million, in 2012. Samsung were found of guilt of copyright infringement on the iPhone’s design, for the control surface, bezel, and user interface, which made up $399 million of the fine. Samsung was originally sued $2.5 billion in damages by Apple for copyright infringement, in 2011.

Samsung Apple patent dispute

Samsung lost their on-going patent dispute against Apple last week, to the tune of $548 million USD.

Patent Dispute Expected To Be A Setback For Samsung, At Most

According to Apple, the fine “reinforces what courts around the world have already found: that Samsung willfully stole our ideas and copied our products.

Samsung hopes to reclaim some of this hefty fine, however, depending on the ruling of an upcoming patent dispute Apple is involved in. If Apple’s touchscreen is found to be in violation of Trademark and Copyright Laws. Apple has disputed Samsung’s right to reimbursed.

The payment does not equal an admission of guilt, according to an email from Samsung, “While we’ve agreed to pay Apple, we remain confident that our products do not infringe on Apple’s design patents, and we will continue to take all appropriate measures within the legal system to protect our products and our intellectual property.”

Later in the same Press Release, a spokeswoman from Samsung concluded, “We are disappointed that the court has agreed to proceed with Apple’s grossly exaggerated damages claims regardless of whether the patents are valid.”

Regardless of the findings, Samsung remains one of the top three most popular mobile devices in the world. The fine will be a setback, and a sting in their pocketbook, some of which they stand to get back.
