Apple, which has been embroiled in a bitter patent fight with Samsung Electronics, won a court order Tuesday blocking the sale of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer in the U.S. The preliminary injunction will be in effect while the two technology giants litigate Apple's patent infringement claims. “Although Samsung will necessarily be harmed by being forced to withdraw its product from the market before the merits can be determined after a full trial, the harm faced by Apple absent an injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is greater,” U.S. District Judge Lucy H. Koh in San Jose said in the eight-page ruling.

Surging sales of tablet computers are driving a fundamental change in how Americans read books. Twenty-three percent of Americans age 16 and older say they have read an e-book in the last year, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center. That's up from 16% a year ago. At the same time, the number of those who read a printed book in the last 12 months fell to 67% -- a decline of five percentage points. The rise in electronic book reading coincides with an increase in the number of people who own tablet computers or dedicated e-readers such as Amazon's Kindle or Barnes & Noble's Nook.  A quarter of all Americans age 16 and up own an Apple Inc. iPad, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab or other tablet computer, Pew reports, an increase from 10% in 2011.

An email discussed during the Apple-Samsung trial last week revealed that Steve Jobs was not entirely opposed to the idea of a 7-inch tablet, which could be more evidence that an iPad mini is on its way. The email was sent from Eddie Cue, Apple senior vice president of Internet software and services, to several others in the Cupertino company's leadership, including current Chief Executive Tim Cook. In it, Cue said that after trying a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab, he believed there was a market for tablets of that size, and that Apple should go after it. Cue then wrote, "I expressed this to Steve several times since Thanksgiving and he seemed very receptive the last time," according to a copy of the email, which you can see on CNET . Cue's January 2011 email shows just how much Jobs' stance on how large tablets should be changed before the Apple co-founder passed away in October.

Samsung won a court ruling against Apple on Monday, but the reason was less than stellar for the company. A U.K. judge Monday ruled in favor of Samsung in a case involving its Galaxy Tablets and the iPad, saying the South Korean company's products are not "cool" enough to be confused with Apple's tablet. Samsung's Galaxy tablets “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design,” Judge Colin Birss said, according to Bloomberg . “They are not as cool.” Birss said three Galaxy tablets don't infringe on Apple's registered design because consumers are not likely to mix them up with the iPad, according to the report.
