Google announced on its developers blog that "Google Cardboard is bringing virtual reality worldwide. Starting today, the Google Cardboard app is available in 39 languages and over 100 countries on both Android and iOS devices. Additionally, the Cardboard developer docs are now published in 10 languages to help developers build great VR experiences. With more than 15 million installs of Cardboard apps from Google Play, we're excited to bring VR to even more people around the world. The Cardboard SDKs for Android and Unity have been updated to address your top two requests: drift correction and Unity performance. This update includes a major overhaul of the sensor fusion algorithms that integrate the signals from the gyroscope and accelerometer. These improvements substantially decrease drift, especially on phones with lower-quality sensors. Finally, to help bring you to more places, you can now explore Google Street View in Cardboard."

17:18 EDTSSNLFNVIDIA to ask for full commission review in Samsung patent case
NVIDIA said in a blog post: "We said we would keep you informed of new developments in our cases with Samsung. In the latest step of our efforts to protect NVIDIA's intellectual property, an administrative law judge at the U.S. International Trade Commission ruled today that Samsung (SSNLF) and Qualcomm (QCOM ) did not violate U.S. law with respect to importing certain Samsung products into the U.S. Judge Thomas Pender issued an initial determination that Samsung and Qualcomm didn't infringe two NVIDIA patents, and that both did infringe a third patent but that this patent wasn't valid. This initial determination is one more step in a long legal process. We now intend to ask the full commission to review this initial determination and to confirm the previous judgment of the U.S. Patent Office - that the third patent is valid. If they agree, the ITC would issue an order that would preclude Samsung from importing into the U.S. infringing Samsung mobile devices and smart TVs. We are continuing this case by proceeding to the next step in the process because we believe our patents are valid and have been infringed." Reference Link
13:43 EDTSSNLFU.S. trade judge says Samsung products do not violate NVIDIA patent rights
Administrative Law Judge Thomas Pender issued an initial determination on violation in a patent fight brought by NVIDIA (NVDA) against Samsung (SSNLF) and Qualcomm (QCOM). Pender's initial determination is that there is no violation of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, in the importation into the U.S., the sale for importation, or the sale within the U.S. after importation of certain consumer electronics and display devices with graphics processing and graphics processing units that NVIDIA claims are infringing upon its patent rights. The judge stated that the accused products with Adreno, PowerVR, or Mali GPUs do not infringe claim 14 of U.S. Patent No. 7,209,140 and that claim 14 of the '174 patent is invalid as obvious. Some of the accused products infringe claim 23 of U.S. patent 6,690,372, but claims 23 and 24 of the '372 patent are invalid as anticipated, the judge said. The accused products with Adreno or Mali GPUs do not infringe claims 1 or 15 of U.S. Patent No. 7,038,685, the judge also determined. The judge's findings are subject to review by the commission, which can block imports of products that it finds infringe U.S. patents.

In a blog post, Samsung said that Samsung Pay was "not impacted and at no point was any personal payment information at risk.

11:33 EDTGOOGGoPro drops to 52-week low after Morgan Stanley slashes price target
GoPro (GPRO) shares, which are down over 50% year-to-date, fell to a new 52-week low in morning trading after an analyst from Morgan Stanley lowered the action camera maker's price target as a result of disappointing sales of its Session device. WHAT'S NEW: Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette maintained an Equal Weight rating on GoPro's shares but slashed his price target on the stock to $35 from $62, saying that "disappointing" HERO4 Session sales indicate future disappointments, absent marked improvements in usability. Faucette said that recent checks were "decidedly more negative" since customers prefer the HERO4 Silver's screen and video quality over the Session's smaller form factor. Disappointing demand for the Session resulted in the company deciding to reduce the price to $299 a week ago, down $100 lower than the $399 price tag in July, the analyst noted. Faucette added that mobile software improvements and editing are still lagging behind apps available on Google's (GOOG) Android and Apple's (AAPL) iOS systems. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 23, Cowen also lowered its price target on GoPro shares to $60 from $76, saying that the slower than expected sales for the HERO4 Session now seem well discounted. Separately, on September 19, Alexander Eule argued in a Barron's article that GoPro's share price may drop to as low as $25, calling the company's cameras a "one-product wonder" akin to BlackBerry (BBRY) smartphones and Palm digital organizers. Three days later, GoPro chief executive officer Nick Woodman said in an interview with CNBC that it was "short-sighted" to refer to his company as a "one trick pony." Woodman added that the Session was selling against incumbents and that it was unreasonable to believe it would immediately become a top seller. RISING COMPETITION: In the same CNBC interview, GoPro's head said that companies such as Sony (SNE), which is viewed as a major competitor in the market for cameras, have actually helped GoPro expand total reach and that its market share has grown since Sony entered the market. In addition, on September 22, Woodman said that he does not believe Apple (AAPL), which was granted patents for action cameras in January, is "investing and exploring GoPro-like devices," Fortune reported. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, GoPro shares dropped 9.7% to $27.69. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a new 52-week low of $27.52. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Ambarella (AMBA), which supplies chips to GoPro, fell 2.5% to $60.15.
