Apple wants to shake this massive bill, but can’t

What costs Apple $1,100 per hour but the company can’t do anything about? Easy: The fee that the company’s getting charged by a court-compliance monitor after it lost an eBook lawsuit earlier this year. Michael Bromwich and his team have cost the company $138,432.40 over just two weeks, which is so insane that the company has said that they’ve never had an individual cost this high. Apple’s pushing back in court, though for his part, Bromwich says his fee (which allows him to make what’s a yearly salary for many people in the span of a 40-hour week) is reasonable.

In Pakistan, the government is considering filing charges against former leader Gen. Pervez Musharraf. It could cause a big heaping of strife, however.

At the box office, a sequel film that stars a mostly black cast did impressive business, and analysts can’t wrap their heads around it.

Did Apple just buy the company that created the technology that drives Microsoft’s Kinect? And did they pay $345 million dollars?

What if “Breaking Bad had ended like “Newhart”?

Apple reveals number of government requests for customer data
The Next Web: Apple published a report that details the number of consumer data requests it receives from governments around the world. The company also said it “strongly” opposes limits on the number of U.S. government requests it can report. 

At present, the company is limited to only providing a broad range for the number from the US government. …
The report, which appears to be a first for Apple, contains all the data that the company is legally allowed to share. Moving forward, Apple said that it will “continue to advocate for greater transparency.”
Apple revealed in June that it had received 4,000-5,000 requests from US officials from December 2012 to May 2013. The firm said at the time that its legal team reviews each requests and only provides the “narrowest possible set of information” to the authorities when appropriate.

Apple - iPhone 5s - TV Ad - Metal Mastered

Almost like a Bond opening title sequence. Maybe more like an X-Men or Spider Man one.

This is what Kim Kardashian was thinking of when she got her iPhone 5.

SEC hits Citigroup with another round of fines over illegal disclosures

  • $2M in fines were paid by Citigroup last year, afer it was found that the company illegally provided certain clients with unpublished company research on Facebook’s initial public offering back in May 2012.
  • $30M in fines have now been levied against Citigroup, after the SEC has once again found the company guilty of illegally providing unpublished research to select clients, this time giving some investors ample time to clear Apple shares ahead of a predicted shortage in iPhone 5S and 5C devices. source
