Apple loses patent retrial to VirnetX, owes $302.4 million

The Apple Inc. store is seen on the day of the new iPhone 7 smartphone launch in Los AngelesBy Andrew Chung NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal jury in Texas on Friday night ordered Apple Inc to pay more than $302 million in damages for using VirnetX Holding Corp's patented internet security technology without permission in features including its FaceTime video conferencing application. The verdict came in a new trial in Tyler, Texas that had been ordered by the judge in the case, Robert Schroeder, who last August threw out VirnetX's $625.6 million win over Apple from a previous trial because he said jurors in that case may have been confused. VirnetX and Apple have been fighting over patents for years.

Here’s What Happens When You Throw an iPhone Off the World’s Tallest Building
Surprise!

It seems safe to say that most people who have gotten their hands on the iPhone 7 Plus have been focused on keeping it as pristine as possible. But in the case of one Ukrainian tech vlogger, the exact opposite was true.

YouTube user TechRax shared a video Wednesday of himself visiting the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, for a special reason — to drop his new iPhone from the 148th floor.

In the clip, TechRax tosses the phone off the observation deck to fall 2,717 feet before heading back down to try and track where it fell. Unsurprisingly, he is unable to locate it.

“This thing is fried,” he says. “It’s just completely destroyed. The impact hit it to the point where I can’t track it.”

Watch the full video above.

Cross your fingers that this robot isn’t making breakfast tomorrow

Robots are capable of truly amazing things, and they’re getting more intelligent and functional by the day. Wait, that should have said ‘some’ robots… Some robots are capable of truly amazing things. This one? Well, this one is really only capable of making a mess. In the video, Barret’s WAM robot is learning to flip pancakes through reinforcement learning. It’s the same way this robot learned to play ball in cup. It was slow going at first. But eventually the robot got it. Granted, the video is six years old, but we’re still using the same training methods (mostly) today. All told, it…
