AMNews: Firefox 8 Available for Download, iPhone 4S Outgoing Calls Issue, iPad 3 to Have A6 Processor?

Mozilla has released Firefox 8 ahead of its November 8 launch on its FTP servers. The release comes only a month after the company introduced Firefox 7 to the masses. The quick releases are a result of Mozilla adopting a faster release model, taking the lead from Google, whose rapid release cycle for Chrome has allowed it to gain a huge browser market share.

Another complaint from iPhone 4S users has recently come to light: Apple's star handset is failing to give any audio on some outgoing calls. The problem seems to have affected many people, considering the 33-page thread with owners describing the issue on Apple's support forum.

For anyone who might have observed tech giants Apple and Samsung feuding in more than twenty courtrooms all over the world, the possibility of them working together seems unlikely. Nonetheless, Apple is, and will remain for the foreseeable future, Samsung's biggest client, supplying components for iDevices.

The partnership between Nokia and Microsoft has many benefits, for example, preferential treatment during Windows Phone 7 releases. Nokia is adopting a new policy under which it plans to differentiate itself from makers of other handsets with various proprietary apps.

On Friday, Motorola succeeded in obtaining a preliminary injunction against Apple. This injunction stops Apple from selling any of its devices in Germany that violate two of Motorola wireless technology patents.
