Apple has appealed a federal judge's denial of its request to ban 26 Samsung products that were part of a sweeping patent infringement case it won in August.

Samsung isn't going away without a fight. A day after Apple said it would seek to ban eight Samsung smartphones from sale in the U.S., the South Korean electronics giant shot back Tuesday with a short statement: "We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market.

Chris Carpenter pitches for a team once owned by America's largest brewery in a stadium that shares its name with a brand of beer. But should Carpenter wish to toast any of his victories this season he'll have to wait until he leaves the ballpark.

As she stood in a Dodgers Stadium parking lot, Terry Romero pointed to one of the hillsides that shape the urban panorama around the baseball park.

"I've been here every opening day since they built this stadium." So of course, Romero, an administrative assistant who lives in Highland Park, was there Tuesday for the Dodgers' home opener.
