Without plaintiffs, iTunes lawsuit could end in Apple's favor

Without plaintiffs, iTunes lawsuit could end in Apple's favor

The $350 million lawsuit brought against Apple over iTunes issues could end in Apple's favor if the federal judge deems the case lacks a legitimate plaintiff. At issue is that Apple's lawyers claim that the plaintiffs in the case may not have purchased iPod models that are the focus of the trial where Apple is accused of stifling competition by not allowing music purchased from an iTunes-rival service to be loaded onto the company's iconic iPod music players.

Review: Deck out your iPhone 6 with a Casetify case

Review: Deck out your iPhone 6 with a Casetify case

I don't use Facebook very often — it's a place for me to keep in touch with Canadian cousins and roller derby folk, and that's about it. As such, what I'm about to say seems a bit crazy: I not only found Casetify on Facebook, but through a Facebook ad. In fact, the accessory-maker may win the award for the first Facebook ad I've ever clicked on.

I wish I could say that the copy was enthralling or punny, but it was the imagery that actually caught my eye: Casetify makes clear iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases with specialized designs imprinted on them, and was showcasing them on a gold iPhone. A gold iPhone, encased in such a way that you could still see the gold underneath. Intriguing!

Apple Pay is the convenient new electronic payment method that Apple has built into the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Eddy Cue: iTunes DRM made Apple a success where Microsoft had failed

In the iTunes class-action suit filed against Apple, software head Eddy Cue defended his company's use of DRM stating that it was the best strategy to making the iPod a success where rivals, like Microsoft, failed. Cue said that Apple had explored the possibility of opening up its FairPlay DRM for competitors to use from the beginning, but it was obligated to protect against hacks by its deals with the record labels. Lawyers for Apple used Cue's testimony in court to paint a picture of the company as pro-consumer, but one whose success was tied to its relationships with a guarded music industry.
