Apple Temporarily Gets Rid of ‘Intrusive’ Court-Appointed Antitrust Monitor

Michael BromwichLast July, the Department of Justice (DoJ) won an antitrust lawsuit against Apple for conspiring to price fix digital books. One of the provisions approved by Federal Court Judge Denise Cote was that Apple would have an external monitor appointed, whose job it would be to make sure Apple was working toward remedying its issue and wasn’t trying any more price-fixing tricks.

By December, Apple was pushing for a stay of the investigation by the monitor, claiming that the appointed watchdog, Michael Bromwich, was being too pushy by starting the investigation preemptively.

Popular Recipe Site Epicurious Re-Launches All New iPad App

Epicurious 1One of my favorite things to use my iPad for is a cookbook. I regularly try new dinner recipes, cookie batches, and even specialty drink attempts. I’m one of those types that have more flour on my iPad than I do in my mixing bowl. A favorite app used to be Epicurious. However, I stopped using the food-discovery service about a year ago. No reason. I just started using Evernote Food to save recipes from my favorite food blogs, so most of my cookbook apps went on the “shelf.”

Epicurious has just been completely redesigned, renamed, and reimagined. So, I immediately redownloaded it and can’t wait to try a new recipe I’ve just found.

Apple Makes Samsung Patent Settlement Contingent on ‘Anti-Cloning’ Provision

anticloningOne of the reasons Apple took Samsung to court more than two years ago was because the latter had made their smartphones and tablets resemble the iPhone and iPad so much that it was hard not to take note of the similarities. While no one would mistake a Galaxy Tab for an iPad, it was clear that Apple didn’t like how Samsung was making a huge profit by taking design ideas from its supply partner, and now major competitor.

According to Foss Patents, in order to have an amicable settlement in the U.S. patent lawsuit trial, Apple will require Samsung to agree to an anti-cloning provision that would allow the former to sue the latter if their products resemble iPhones or iPads to closely.
