Apple ebooks monitor escape plan foiled

Apple ebooks monitor escape plan foiled

Apple has lost its latest attempt to soften the impact of its ebook price-fixing punishment, with a court rejecting its appeal to stay the work of the mandated antitrust monitor the Cupertino firm has been forced to pay for. Michael R. Bromwich had been employed at the court's demand to work in-house at Apple, after the company was found guilty of conspiring with five of the major publishing houses to raise ebook pricing. Unsurprisingly, Apple wasn't too keen on his presence, however - nor how much access to internal documents he would be given - though the appeals court has softened the impact a little.

Apple Sapphire Crystal furnaces acquired: iPhone 6 production lines up

A number of documents have appeared this week showing how Apple and the folks at GT Advanced have moved in a number of machines made for inspecting Sapphire Displays to their new manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona. These machines have been found in import/export records acquired by 9to5 Mac and analyst Matt Margolis and appear to be working with the ability to inspect large slabs of Sapphire. These large slabs are specifically intended for displays as opposed to Apple's previous implementations of the material, those being the frontmost bit of the iPhone 5s' Touch ID home button or the backmost bit on the back-facing camera array of the iPhone 5.

Google loses fight over public shaming in France

Google loses fight over public shaming in France

Google's attempts to escape privacy sanctions in France that will force it to publish an embarrassing mea-culpa on its site have failed, with the French courts insisting there'll be no getting around the public message. Regulators had already leveled at €150,000 ($204k) fine at Google for changing its privacy policies in ways that contravened French law; however, Google took issue with the idea of publicly announcing that penalty on its homepage, arguing that it would cause irreparable damage to its reputation.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up 2/6/2014: iPhone 4, Outlast, Sony sells VAIO

This week we're seeing some rather odd headlines in the world of gadgets, technology, and the people who work in-between. One of the strangest has to be a note from artist Jean Michel Jarre, a fellow who wants $400 for every smartphone made because "content creators", as he calls them, are more important (says he) to the industry than the creators of the hardware their bits are served on.

Apple demands patent troll reform

Apple demands patent troll reform

Apple and Google may not agree on a lot of things, but when it comes to crazy patent suits both companies feel the same way: it's time for the rules to change and make it easier to fight back. Apple has joined Google's call for patent reform, particularly around whether it can demand attorneys' fees in cases each company wins. Currently, even if the patent claim is defeated, Google or Apple themselves must cover the cost of their lawyers.
