SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple (AAPL) on Monday gave a federal judge a list of eight Samsung Electronics products it wants pulled from shelves and banned from the U.S. market, including popular Galaxy model smartphones.

 

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh asked for the list after a jury in San Jose last week slammed Samsung with a $1.05 billion verdict, finding that the South Korean technology giant had "willfully" copied Apple's iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products. Samsung plans an appeal.

 

The products Apple wants out are all smartphones: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.

 

The decision against Samsung is likely to reform the mobile landscape.

There's always been a fine line between "flattery" and theft. After all, it's broadly understood that imitation is the best form of flattery. While that may be great with best friends who may decide to buy the same dress, in the corporate world too much flattery keeps lawyers employed.

 

There's no better example of this today than what has been going on between tech giants Apple (AAPL) and its suit against South Korean giant Samsung.

 

Bulls have become addicted to the stock. That's a good thing. For now.

If Apple (AAPL) news flies under the radar, does that mean it never happened?

 

Apple pulled an ad campaign that never should have seen the light of day in the first place, yet it barely made headlines.

 

Credit gigaom as one of the few outlets to report the news: Apple not only pulled its horrific Genius Bar-focused advertising run from television, the company removed it from its Web site and YouTube channel. Many had criticized the ads for showing customers in an unflattering light.

 

The company will tie in its new badge with upcoming releases of Windows 8, Office and phone software.

Microsoft (MSFT) unveiled its first new logo in 25 years on Thursday as it looks to unify its branding ahead of a clutch of new product releases this year.

 

The world's largest software company is introducing a dash of color in its first logo redesign since 1987, using a new multi-colored square next to a plain rendering of its name, replacing its well-worn italic style logo. (Microsoft owns and publishes TechBiz, an MSN Money site.)

It's been about a year since the video rental company made a couple of really bad decisions. Things aren't looking much better now.

Can you believe it's been about a year since streaming movie giant Netflix (NFLX) made a pair of self-destructive decisions?

 

First it moved to hike prices when its customers were struggling to make ends meet just to pay for basic household necessities. Then it turned around and announced plans to split its popular DVD delivery service from its streaming business -- a decision it later nixed.

 

Today, very little has changed with the company, and how it is perceived and its competitive landscape have taken a turn for the worse.

 

There was some good news in the company's most recent earnings report as Netflix met its targets and reported profit of 11 cents a share, topping the average analyst estimate of 4 cents. Revenue was $889 million, up from $788.6 million a year earlier.
