Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It's said that all is fair in love and war, and apparently that extends to business as well, even if it means taking advantage of a competitor during one of the darkest moments in their corporate history.

AppleInsider today reported
that even more internal memos have been drudged up in the ongoing Apple v. Samsung trial, and the latest communiqués paint a rather ugly picture of Samsung executives in the wake of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs' death.

In early October, 2011, executives from Samsung Telecommunications America grappled with the implications of Apple's just-launched iPhone 4S and accompanying iOS 5 and how it would affect their own Galaxy S II smartphone. Because Apple was considered a large customer of the parent company's components, the Korean manufacturer avoided directly attacking Cupertino as part of its marketing strategy.

That is, until October 5, when Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away.

According to emails presented this week as part of the current Apple v. Samsung patent tussle, Samsung Vice-President Michael Pennington suggested a change in strategy only days after Jobs' death, which the executive claims had "unintended" positive benefits for Cupertino.

"Unfortunately, Steve Job's [sic] passing has led to a huge wave of press coverage of Apple's and iPhone's 'superiority,' all created by the 'passionate, tireless, perfectionist...'" Pennington wrote. "What consumer wouldn't feel great about purchasing a device developed by such a person.

"Sorry to continue to push this issue, but I have seen this far too long and I know this is our best opportunity to attack iPhone," Pennington concluded.

The recommendation was taken to heart by Samsung's Chief Marketing Officer Todd Pendleton, who initiated a plan to go "head to head with iPhone 4S" with "a very aggressive strategy" during the 2011 holiday season.

"In the process we will demystify the perceived Apple advantage (ecosystem/services) by showing how consumers can easily switch to Android and have more personalization/more choice by being part of the Samsung ecosystem," Pendleton added.

Although this new evidence may not do much to support Apple's claims that Samsung copied the look and feel of the iPhone, it certainly portrays the Korean manufacturer as an overly aggressive competitor with little regard for one of their biggest clients.

Amazon Cloud Drive storage bump

The Apple Online Store went down in many parts of the world overnight, and eager shoppers were discouraged to find nothing new when the lights came back on. That is, unless they happened to be in the market for one of those affordable 8GB iPhone 5c handsets, which have now shown up in 14 more countries — but the USA is sadly not one of them, so you'll have to be satisfied with our morning recap instead...

Amazon Cloud Drive 3.0 App Receives iOS 7 Makeover

Now that Amazon's Fire TV is on the market, the company's Cloud Drive Photos app makes a whole lot more sense — and it finally got updated this week with a complete redesign that falls nicely in line with the look and feel of iOS 7. The photo and video app now features easier navigation and sorting, with better status updates for automatic or manual uploads. And that's not all, as our second of three Amazon-related tidbits reveals...

Own a Kindle? Your Cloud Drive Just Got Bumped to 10GB

Amazon has another treat for readers who own Kindle hardware: According to iMore (and confirmed with the above screenshot snapped from our own account), the e-tailer is consolidating the 5GB of free cloud storage used for Kindle Personal Documents with that offered by Cloud Drive, which winds up as 10GB for all usage. Send-to-Kindle documents now appear in a dedicated Cloud Drive folder and are finally stored in their native format, but you will need to currently own or have previously owned Kindle hardware to take advantage of the storage bump.

BGR Claims to Have First Peek at Amazon Smartphone

BGR may have given the world its first glimpse at an Amazon-branded smartphone on Tuesday, which is rumored to use up to six cameras to provide some form of glasses-free 3D for its custom user interface. The leaked pictures don't reveal a great deal about the handset, which is encased in a security housing to prevent prying eyes from getting a close look at what it actually looks like. Rumors have persisted for years that Amazon is building their own smartphone, which will likely debut in the U.S. only at first and could arrive in more than one variety to cover every budget.

Microsoft Launches Cheaper Office 365 Personal Subscription

Too cheap to pay $99.99 for Office 365 when you don't have a family to share it with? Microsoft has heard your cries for help, and on Tuesday the Windows maker made it a little easier to subscribe with the new Office 365 Personal plan at $69.99 per year or $6.99 per month. The stripped-down package provides Office access to a single Mac or PC as well as one tablet plus 20GB of extra OneDrive storage. While it's a step in the right direction, clever shoppers can already purchase the more robust Office 365 Home subscription for around the same price if they know where to look, which is a much better value for up to five computers, five tablets and five OneDrive users. We're just sayin'...

A&E, History for iOS Add Authenticated Live Streaming

If you're paying for cable or satellite service but don't have the time to sit on the couch and stay caught up with your favorite TV shows, the folks at A&E and History have great news for you. The free, universal iOS apps can now stream live television feeds straight to an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad — but cord-cutters can forget about using it. The feature requires authentication with a paid TV service, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise, since most every kind of television app does these days.

h.h.gregg Slashes Prices on iPads with Free Shipping

Speaking of tablets, the folks at retailer h.h.gregg reached out to us earlier this week to give readers a heads-up on special pricing for select iPad models for a limited time only. Among the deals are non-Retina iPad minis for $299.99, and another $100 bumps you up to the latest and greatest Retina Display model. Prices include free shipping or in-store pickup, and h.h.gregg store card holders can save an additional five percent on products priced over $497, with up to 24 months to pay the bill.
