    The Apple-Samsung war has cooled off recently, but now it seems that the fight is getting more steam. And, once more, Apple is the winner. A Silicon Valley jury added $290 million more to the damages Samsung Electronics owes Apple for copying iPhone and iPad features. Now, the total amount the South Korean company owes to Apple for patent infringement is at $930 million.

    The previous jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion but U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh reduced the damages to $640 million after ruling that the jury miscalculated the amount owed on 13 devices. Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said the following
