If you thought Lady Gaga’s tour controversy was over, you were dead wrong! Hey guys, you’re tuned in to your news source, Electric Chapel. Lady Gaga is currently on her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour, and the controversy is far from over. After facing the wrath of Christian protestors and from the Government in South Korea, Gaga will face similar opposition when her tour stops in Indonesia.

While the protestors in South Korea condemned Gaga for promoting “unhealthy sexual culture” through “lewd lyrics and performance,” Indonesian Muslims will take it a step further. These protestors are more concerned with Mother Monster’s alleged dealings with the devil.

A spokesperson for the Islamic Defenders’ Front told The Wall Street Journal, “Lady Gaga insults all religions. Even Christians in Korea opposed her. She is promoting the worship of Satan.” Chairman of the Islamic Defender’s Front went further by telling an Islamic newspaper, “If you want chaos in Jakarta, just continue to hold the concert.” We don’t think Gaga is opposed to chaos, but this doesn’t sound like the kind of chaos we’d like at a Monster Ball.

As of now, the June 3 show in the Nation’s capital is forging ahead as scheduled. What do you think of this controversy? Is it totally uncalled for or valid? Leave a comment, and follow Electric Chapel for more Gaga news. See ya!

Apple and Samsung continue to battle it out in the smartphone market, and Samsung continues to hold the upper hand. While Apple continues to hold a strong grip on the American smartphone market, the latest numbers for worldwide smartphone market share show that Samsung is beginning to pull away from Apple in its lead over the iPhone maker.

“The race between Apple and Samsung remained tight during the quarter, even as both companies posted growth in key areas,” Ramon Llamas, a senior research analyst with IDC, said today in a statement. “Apple launched its popular iPhone 4S in additional key markets, most notably in China, and Samsung experienced continued success from its Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet and other Galaxy smartphones.”

During the first quarter, IDC research reveals that Samsung remained the number one smartphone vendor in the world with a market share of 29.1 percent, nearly five percent higher than Apple’s stake of 24.2 percent. Samsung shipped 42.2 million smartphones worldwide in the first quarter, while Apple shipped 35.1 million iPhones. Both companies have increased their smartphone shipments dramatically year-over-year, with Apple and Samsung shipping only 18.6 million and 11.5 million smartphones respectively in the year-ago quarter.

At that time, Nokia was the top smartphone vendor with market share of 23.8 percent. A year later, it holds a staggeringly lower 8.2 percent stake in the smartphone market. Apple was also still ahead of Samsung at the time, but the smartphone landscape has changed significantly in the past twelve months.

“While Apple and Samsung have taken it in turns to lead the smartphone market over the last four quarters, it seems as if Samsung may now have established a firm lead in this space, shipping 11.8 million more units than the Cupertino, California company in Q1,” Juniper said in a statement today.

Apple has yet to launch the iPhone on the world’s largest carrier, China Mobile, so that could help the Cupertino-based company make up some significant ground in international market share. For now, however, Samsung is winning. Apple might dominate the United States smartphone market, but Samsung is dominating the rest of the world.

Lady Gaga debuted the Born This Way Ball in South Korea on Friday night, attracting more than 45,000 fans, which is the second highest attendance in the country’s history of concerts. “I’m so grateful for all of you, thank you monsters,” she said. “Last night was like being completely prepared for a moment you could never prepare for.”

The court-moderated settlement talks that Apple and Samsung agreed to hold will take place on May 21 – 22, according to patent expert Florian Mueller for FOSS Patents. Apple and Samsung chief executives Tim Cook and Gee-Sung Choi respectively, along with lawyers for both companies, will be present in the discussions.

On April 17, I already reported on the fact that Apple and Samsung agreed, under soft pressure from Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, to meet for court-moderated settlement talks at the level of the CEOs and their chief lawyers. Judge Koh wanted the parties to meet whttp://www.ifans.com/wp-admin/post-new.phpithin 90 days. The judge who will oversee this settlement effort, Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero, has now scheduled this settlement conference for May 21-22, 2012, starting on each day at 9:30 AM.

While the settlement talks will be moderated by the court, it cannot force the two consumer electronics makers to reach an agreement. But let’s hope that Apple and Samsung can finally settle their differences and focus on creating the latest innovative products and technologies. Apple and Samsung will continue to be competitors in their respective markets, but hopefully they can handle their matters out of the courts in the future.

According to sources of Reuters, Apple is currently working to bring film streaming service EPIX to their $99 1080p streaming box. Such a partnership would mean additional content from studios like Lions Gate Entertainment, MGM, and Paramount Pictures — which, incidentally, created EPIX just three years ago.

Even though Apple is working hard to gain rights for film streaming from EPIX, Reuters’ sources note that things “are in the preliminary stages and no agreement is considered near.”

In the past few months, there have been many rumors circulating about an Apple HDTV set that could make its debut later this year. Some claim it will be Retina, while others add that it could include such iOS functions as Siri and Game Center. I could see Apple entering the gaming scene with such a device, but I’m not sure exactly how things will work since PS3s and Xbox 360s seem to rule that ground right now — there’s really no way Angry Birds can compare if you want to play a real game like Uncharted or Call of Duty, though iOS alternatives and ports have been rather successful.

Other than gaming, it’s obvious that Apple will include iCloud media streaming with their TV set, but there’s still so much that we don’t know about it — how much will it cost, will there be different display options, will there be an “Apple TV App Store,” and so on. For now, feel free to speculate in the comments and tell us what you think the corporation will do to make their impact on the television industry.
