Apple has decided to appeal a federal judge's ruling that denied the company's request to ban 26 Samsung products. In August, a jury ruled that the Samsung products had infringed a handful of Apple patents and ordered the South Korean tech giant to pay $1.05 billion in damages to the maker of the iPhone.

When she moved here in the 1980s, Carri Stevens was baffled. This is Nevada, so where are all the casinos? she wondered.

"Tourists can't believe it," said Stevens, who with her husband, Al, runs the Coffee Cup cafe.

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. That's because the St. Louis Cardinals don't allow beer or other alcoholic beverages in their clubhouse. Same for the Colorado Rockies, who play at Coors Field, and the Milwaukee Brewers, who are not only named after beer makers but play in a stadium (Miller Park)

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 sat up on that hill pregnant with my son," said Romero, 63 and trim in her Brooklyn Dodgers shirt -- a reminder of the provenance of the team before it moved to Los Angeles. "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.

State lawmakers adopted one of the nation's most far-reaching regulations of tobacco use Monday, approving a bill to outlaw smoking at 278 state parks and beaches. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has not said publicly whether he will sign the measure, which would allow a fine of up to $100 for smoking at a state beach or in a designated section of a state park. Smoking would still be allowed in many parking lots and campgrounds. The state has previously banned smoking within 25 feet of a playground or sandbox area and in public buildings.
