Apple has lost a Taiwanese lawsuit accusing it of anti-competitive phone pricing tactics, and barring an appeal will be fined T$20 million, or a little over $647,000 U.S., a report said on Wednesday.
The fine was previously issued by Taiwan’s Fair Trade Commission, which charged that Apple broke the law by demanding that Taiwanese carriers get approval for prices on iPhone plans, according to Reuters. Apple launched a countersuit, but lost.
A very serious security flaw in Apple’s iOS mobile platform and its OS X desktop operating system has been discovered by security researchers and seemingly acknowledged by Apple. Using the flaw, hackers can build an app that is capable of stealing any and all passwords saved in Apple’s Keychain. Additionally, the same flaw can reportedly be used to steal passwords directly from third-party apps as well as Apple’s own apps.
An Omaha business is asking for the public’s help catching two cellphone thieves caught on camera.
“These two guys come in the store, they’re just asking some questions about different devices,” iRepair store owner Hyle Erwin said. “Questions about what’s the most expensive phone we have.”
Surveillance video shows two young men walk into the store at 78th and Dodge streets. The men talk to a store employee for approximately 15 minutes. Once they had the cellphones in hand, they ran out.
