Apple asked for an injunction on US sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in February, and now it's gotten it. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has ruled that the Google flagship device infringes several patents, but primarily 8,086,604 (multi-source searching). This is a blow to Google just as I/O 2012 is wrapping up. This might finally bring Google head to head with Apple.
Apple has alleged that Samsung infringed four patents, including the aforementioned multi-source search patent.

There are four tabs you can swipe between:
The sign-in process uses your system Google accounts, so there are no passwords to enter.
Face Unlock, a security feature introduced with Ice Cream Sandwich, while a fun concept, proved vulnerable to trickery. Specifically, the unlock method would recognize photos of your face as if they were your real face. Another issue with Face Unlock was that it ostensibly never locked users out after numerous failed attempts.
Looking to address these issues, Google did a bit of tweaking to Jelly Bean's Face Unlock. Namely, FU now features a "Liveness check" option which, as the name suggests, makes sure you're a real, live person before unlocking your device.
MLB.com's At Bat 2012 app, which we covered at its launch, and which bills itself as "the #1 sports app of all time" and "the official app of Major League Baseball," has seen a rather significant price reduction, recently sliding from $14.99 to just $9.99 in the Play Store.
The app, for those baseball fans who have until now not discovered this gem, is essentially a one-stop source for mobile updates and supplemental media related to games both in progress and those that are already over.
How many times have you thought "you know, this battery widget would be much better if it had some sort of spinning thing around it." or "I would really like to see my remaining battery percentage in the center of a flower."? If you've ever muttered either of the above (or anything similar), the solution to your quandary just landed in the Play Store. It's called Animated Battery Widgets, and if you can't figure out what it is just by reading the name, then I feel sad for you.
You are Cthulhu. Feels good, doesn't it, being an ancient Elder God? Well, I've got some bad news for you. Your powers have been stolen. Don't ask me how the mighty Cthulhu lost his powers, but he did. Now, it's up to you to get them back by becoming a hero and saving the world...so you can destroy it later.
Cthulhu Saves The World is styled like an old SNES, 16-bit RPG, and it's every bit as charming as Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy.
Zombies: flesh-eating, mindless ex-humanoid beings with an insatiable lust for carnage. If you love those ultra-violent dirty beasts as much as I do, then you've undoubtedly been waiting with bated breath for the new Madfinger (of Shadowgun fame) first person shooter Dead Trigger. And now, the wait is [almost] over.
For the unaware, Dead Trigger puts you behind the gun in the ongoing unholy war against the undead - it's kill or be killed eaten in this post-apocalyptic action-horror thriller.
A few months back, HTC let slip that the lowest-end member of its One family, the One V, would hit "a variety of US partners" come summer. It looks like that rollout is already firing up, as Virgin Mobile USA today announced that it's now selling the prepaid handset for $199.99.
As with all other members of the One series, Virgin Mobile's One V will come with Beats audio and Sense 4 on top of ICS, for better or for worse.
