About a year and a half ago MotorolasuedApple in German courts and won an injunction against Apple's push e-mail technology. Push e-mail technology allowed Apple to push from mail servers to a user's iPhone or iPad making the e-mail appear almost instantly. Back in 2012, a German court found that the technology behind Apple's push e-mail system infringed on a patent held by Motorola.
The court granted an injunction and Motorola chose to use that injunction to block Apple from using push e-mail for its customers. Apple appealed the decision, but the next court upheld the original decision. Apple has now reportedly put up a $135 million bond and has been cleared to begin using push e-mail servicesagain.
During the outage for push e-mail service that last year and a half, iPhone and iPad users in Germany were left only being able to access e-mail using pull services that requested e-mail from the server on schedule. Apple isn't out of the woods yet and may ultimately end up having to license the technology from Motorola.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
