Pocket : Bigger Settlement Said to Be Reached in Silicon Valley Antitrust Case

AppleGoogleIntel and Adobe are offering a joint payment of $415 million to settle the case, according to a source close to the negotiations, up from the $324.5 million they offered in the spring.
The case is scheduled to go to trial this spring in San Jose.
Lawyers for the 64,000 software engineers who are the class-action plaintiffs have already agreed to the new figure, but that does not automatically end the case. The earlier amount was acceptable to the plaintiffs’ lawyers, but it was rejected by the judge overseeing the case as inadequate.
The suit asserts that the companies had illegal agreements that they would not directly solicit one another’s employees.

The case grew out of reported actions by the companies that centered on a period that began in 2005, when Google was ascendant and Apple was trying to defend its turf

But, while many diversity advocates applaud the new initiative, they -- and Krzanich -- readily admit that achieving success will be very difficult.

"It will be hard. I think it's going to be like what we do every two years -- invent Moore's Law," Krzanich said in an interview Wednesday, referring to the company's overarching goal of doubling computer chips' processing power every other year. "We don't know how we're going to do it. We go and put in the engineering effort and do what it takes. We'll do the same thing here."

USB Type-C hands-on: It's here and it's great

"If you haven't heard of USB Type-C, I laid out its details here. To quickly recap, apart from the fact that with Type-C there's no need to worry about which side of the cable to plug in (it works either side up), it also packs the USB 3.1 standard, which comes with a top speed of 10Gbps, twice the current speed of USB 3.0."
