The legal battle between Apple and Samsung is heating up. Apple filed an injunction against Samsung claiming that its Galaxy S smartphones violate 4 of the company’s patents. This is at least the 30th lawsuit the companies have filed against one another; with Apple claiming that Samsung is blatantly copying its products. In other news, if you are an AT&T customer looking to upgrade your phone, it just got more expensive. AT&T announced that it doubled the upgrade fee of smartphones from $18 to $36. The increased prices are due to a higher cost associated with upgrading new devices. And finally, Iran has reportedly further restricted Internet and email access within the country. Millions of Iranian users are reporting low speeds, outages and blocked websites.  Iran has also placed restrictions on services using secured connections like Gmail and Facebook.
