"Terminating the jury's deliberations would render the entire trial a nullity, and cause an extraordinary waste of the court's and Apple's resources in preparing for and conducting the trial," the company's attorneys said in a filing. "Apple would suffer extreme prejudice from having the deliberations aborted, which ultimately would require a … Read more

Verizon on Thursday quietly announced that the HTC One Max has joined its smartphone roster.
Priced at a whopping $299 with a two-year service agreement, the equally-whopping 5.9-inch HTC One Max is a bigger version of the 2013 flagship device, the HTC One, but with the addition of microSD storage and a fingerprint scanner on the back.

This could be the moment of reckoning for the Moto X.
Amazon has dropped the price of the Verizon Wireless model of Motorola's flagship Android phone down to a single penny (with a new two-year contract, of course). So, either there's still plenty of interest in Google-owned Motorola's first true collaborative smartphone, and lowering the price to effectively nothing will amount to tons of new Verizon subscribers and a nice cut for Amazon, or...(perhaps more likely) there are tons of Moto X units taking up too much warehouse space around the country. … Read more
