  1. Samsung Did Not Pay Apple $1.05 Billion in Coins, Internet. Come on

    This one? Again? Really?

    An old Internet myth seems to be rearing it's made-up head, and people are once again sharing the story of how Samsung paid off a $1.05 billion court-ordered settlement with Apple in 30 truckloads of nickels.

    We're one step closer to C3P0 -- or the Terminator, depending on who you ask.

    Roboray, the latest humanoid robot from Samsung, has a new trick up its sleeve.

The new software lets Roboray look at its surroundings and create a map of them as it moves -- or as things move around it -- and retain that information to remember where it has been before, which brings us one step closer to having autonomous robots walking around. If you're a fan of that idea, it's great news! If you're not, commence being terrified...now.

All you need are some triple-A batteries.

  10. Google Maps Can’t Catch a Break in Germany, It May Be Banned by Courts

    In December of last year, Google Maps was facing scrutiny in Germany for potentially violating European Union privacy laws. Things haven't gotten easier for Google in that country, because now Google Maps faces a complete ban in Germany due to a patent dispute with Microsoft. If Microsoft wins the ruling, Google will have to take some pretty extreme measures to keep Google Maps out of Germany. Hope you didn't want to find your away Germany, everybody.
