Apple may have had a successful run in Australia, but looks like it ran out of luck at home. Over the past week, we have been inundated with reports of the lawsuit proceedings between friends-turned-foes, Apple and Samsung in Australia. Here, Apple emerged victorious, at least so far, after it managed to successfully keep Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 off shelves.


Battle rages on.. 

Now, an attempt to convince U.S. District Judge, Lucy Koh to block Samsung's smartphones and tablets from selling in the U.S. went awry, confirms Reuters. The judge refused to accept Apple's request, thereby meting out a severe blow to the Cupertino-based company's ambitions. 

Blocking out Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia has been the last big development in this respect. The two technology giants have been at loggerheads and have been suing and counter-suing each other in several crucial global markets.
