Apple and Samsung have been neck-at-neck in legal battles, with Apple... as Charlie Sheen would say: "winning." Now, Apple has done perhaps the most damage it could to Google with a single Android phone by having Google's flagship smartphone blocked from U.S. sales in the form of an officially-ruled pre-trial injunction. That phone is of course the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the latest in Google's official phone lineup, making this not only a potentially major blow to both companies but also the future of Android.
As snarky as Apple may have been with its iPhone app developers, it may be easing up a bit. Despite a spotted violation of Apple's rules for developers, developer Vimov, creators of the iSimulate application [App Store, $15.99], stated that the program was approved for released on the App Store with a warning to fix the issue in a future update. The warning came when Vimov used a private API, which is against Apple's terms.
The application allows developers to use the iPhone's multi-touch and accelerometer capabilities within the iPhone simulator software on a Mac.
