Leak reveals just how successful Nintendo thinks the Switch will be

Nintendo Switch Sales Numbers 2017

Nintendo was in desperate need of a hit after the company's previous-generation home video game console was an utter disaster. With the Nintendo Switch, it appears as though Nintendo has found that hit. It's obviously far too soon to tell if the Switch can maintain momentum over the long haul, but early signs are outstanding. Nintendo's Wii U successor is in such high demand that the company had to double production. And what's more, those who have managed to get their hands on a Switch already have overwhelmingly positive things to say despite the console's lack of top-tier titles at launch.

Apple found guilty of iPhone price-fixing scheme in Russia

iPhone Sales

This past August, Russia's Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) said that Apple may have orchestrated a price-fixing scheme in the country via its network of Apple authorized resellers, an allegation Apple vehemently denied.

"Resellers set their own prices for the Apple products they sell in Russia and around the world," Apple said at the time.

Verizon is stealing Sprint’s customers with its new unlimited data plan

Verizon vs Sprint

Verizon began 2017 by blindsiding everyone with a new unlimited data plan. I say "blindside," because a year ago yesterday, Verizon's CFO told us all that "the unlimited model does not work."

If unlimited data doesn't work, someone's going to have to explain to me how Verizon is stealing all of Sprint's customers all of a sudden.

Republicans want to let internet providers sell your data without your consent

FCC privacy rules

It's easy to feel that you have zero privacy or control over anything you do on the internet. Between mass surveillance programs, Google reading your emails, and Comcast sliding into your internet-browsing DMs, it's a pretty bad time to be afraid of The Man.

The project would initially move 500 jobs to the US, and appears to be an attempt to curry favor with the new administration, as well as a pre-emptive move to minimize the impact of any border tax on Mexican goods.
