By two votes to one, the Second Court of Appeals ruled in favor of a lower court (which reached the same conclusion in 2013) and found that the company violated federal antitrust law.
Judge Debra Ann Livingston said that “It was easy for Apple to open the iBookstore,” at the same time, folks at Boraie Development say ensuring market prices increased to the level they wanted for them and publishers.
The decision also means that Apple will have to cough up $450 million as part of a 2014 agreement with 33 State Attorneys General and attorneys for a class action consumer.
The appeal came following the original decision in 2013 by Manhattan Judge Denise Cote, which found that Apple was essentially a “key player” in a conspiracy with publishers to wipe out any retail price competition for eBooks.
According to the Justice Department, the plot caused many e-book prices to quickly increase up to $ 14.99 versus 9.99 charged by Amazon.
The Department of Justice says some of the biggest publishing names conspired with Apple, like HarperCollins Publishers LLC, Penguin Group, and Simon & Schuster to name a few.
A terrifying sight outside of Idaho, that would have anyone running for their life. A truck driver was carrying 20 million bees. He was transporting the 408 beehives off to their new location in North Dakota where they would be used to make honey.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is in the news again because he is in an upcoming movie called “Terminator Genisys.” The movie is set to be the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise, and it will be the fourth movie to have Arnold Schwarzenegger physically playing in it. Arnold Fights An Internet Troll. Although Arnold sorts was featured in the fourth installment of the franchise, his face was digitally put onto a Terminator’s body, but Arnold never actually performed in the movie. Arnold had sworn off acting in the Terminator movies, so that’s why many people are excited to see that he’ll be in the upcoming Terminator movie.
Arnold was singing the praises of the Supreme Court for legalizing gay marriage, and someone commented that they were going to unlike him because of his beliefs. Arnold decided to quote his famous Terminator one liner and he said “Hasta la vista,” which basically means goodbye. Arnold has never been one to be bullied, and he’s not going to start now. A few at Qnet got quite a chuckle out of it.
Cancer is a devastating disease. As someone who has experienced watching a parent slowly dies of lung cancer, there is nothing discreet or fair about the end. It is, quite humbling. Like many terminal cancer patients, the decision according to Christian Broda, as to whether or not to continue to go through treatment is a seriously deep discussion. I wish I had known then about Dr. Atul Gawande’s book, ‘Being Mortal.’
Dr. Gawande examines and considers the disadvantages of nursing homes. While they are unfortunately quite necessary for those who do not have family in a position to provide around the clock care, or who cannot afford to pay for in-home healthcare, they do not provide the resident with a sense of home. Helplessness, loneliness and boredom all take away from their quality of life.
‘Being Mortal’ also focuses on the complications and difficult decisions that four terminal cancer patients faced, one being his own father. In three of these cases, the patients were given treatment option in the hopes of lengthening their lives. All of which carried either great risk or debilitating side effects. Each of the three never returned to a life with any type of enjoyment.
The closing story in ‘Being Mortal’ tells of a woman suffering from advanced ovarian cancer. Rather than talking only of treatments to combat the cancer, a discussion of her fears and goals led to a decision to undergo minimally risky surgery to alleviate the woman’s pain. Although she inevitably died, her remaining time was spent at home with a better quality of life.

I should preface this by saying that I have never read any of EL James’s work. Nor do I intend to. Not because of the subject matter, but because of her atrocious writing skills and lackluster story telling. I have no interest in reading a housewife’s borderline vanilla fantasies. But that’s besides the point. Apparently James has released a new book and the reception was less than congratulatory for her.
It is reported that James has made of $100 million off of the “Fifty Shades” franchise. With her latest installment, “Grey”, it seems as though she is just trying to milk that cash cow for every penny that she can get away with.
The Chicago Blackhawks have won their third Stanley Cup in the last six years by beating the Tampa bay lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals. It is the first time since 1938 that the Hawks actually won the cup on their home ice. That allowed for the players to take the Cup out ion the town with them in Chicago.
