A U.S. consumer lawsuit accusing Google of monopolizing prime real estate on Android smartphones will help mobile rivals like Microsoft make their antitrust case with European regulators should damaging secrets emerge in court.

The device relies on low-energy Bluetooth signals and a companion app to relay messages between people who have a goTenna paired to their smartphones.

A survey showed Samsung Electronics Company LImited is losing smartphone ground not only to cheaper Chinese rivals, but also at the high end to Apple Incorporated. The results are an ominous sign for the South Korean giant, as Apple readies to launch its next-generation iPhone 6. Last week, Samsung gave second-quarter earnings guidance that was far weaker than expectations and is on track for its worst quarterly profit in two years–a performance the company attributed in part to price competition and higher inventory levels in China.

Mobile addicts are multiplying at an alarming rate, as an increasing number of teens, college students and middle-age parents fall victim to the problem. According to mobile analytics firm Flurry, a “mobile addict” is defined as a user that launches apps more than 60 times a day, six times more than the average user. According to Flurry, which looks at data from 500,000 apps across 1.3 billion mobile devices, the number of mobile addicts has grown by 123 percent over the past year. As of March 2014, there were 176 million addicts, up from 79 million in the same period last year. Females accounted for 52 percent of addicts, while the rest were males. It comes as no surprise that teens and college students are part of this group as their youth has coincided with the mobile revolution.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said a trial judge erred in concluding that the plaintiffs waited too long to sue the defendants, which control an estimated 70 percent of the market for SD cards.
