Back in 2011, Apple called Samsung a bunch of no-good, phone-stealing copycats (legally speaking,) demanding nearly $US1 billion ($1.3 billion).

It's far more common throughout Europe and the US, but a consortium of European companies is taking a different approach to the new network it's building: instead of satellites dozens of kilometres above the Earth bouncing signals from ground stations to planes and back, the European Aviation Network uses 4G LTE beamed directly upwards from mobile phone towers.
