Apple on Thursday saw its bid to have a federal court ban sales of the Galaxy Nexus fail, according to Reuters. The court fight is "seen as a proxy war" between Apple and nearby Google, whose Android operating system the Samsung phone uses.

Steve Jobs, Apple's late co-founder, called the Android phone a "stolen product," according to reports.
