Officials arrest Apple distributors who sold private data

apple china

Smartphone users — which, at this point, is pretty much everyone — already have enough to worry about when it comes to hackers, malicious apps, and malware invading their phones, but in China, some iPhone users found out their worst enemy was actually the folks selling them their devices in the first place. Chinese officials have now arrested 22 Apple distributors after discovering that they were selling off sensitive user data they found on a secure Apple database. The crooks apparently collected over $7.3 million (over 50 million yuan) from selling the information before being caught.

apple error 53

It's no secret that Apple isn't a huge fan of the "right to repair" movement, or the laws that support consumers' decisions to have their Apple hardware fixed by anyone but Apple itself. The company has been to court on the issue before, but recently released court documents pertaining to a right to repair case in Australia reveal that the company was caught red handed denying consumers repairs that were guaranteed under the country's laws.

Thieves ram sex toy warehouse doors, steal 30,000 condoms

Anyone who has walked through a store checkout with a box of condoms knows how potentially awkward it can be. Some extremely bold thieves in Las Vegas apparently know that feeling all too well, so they decided to get their rubbers the old fashioned way: by driving a station wagon through a warehouse door and stealing tens of thousands of them.

PayPal sues Pandora for ripping off its logo design

PayPal Vs Pandora

Last October, Pandora decided that the brand was in need of a revamp. So, as tech companies are prone to do, the music streaming company rolled out a brand new logo. And, as tech companies are also prone to do, the new logo design was accompanied with a healthy dose of marketing jargon.

The FAA was just forced to lift its drone registration requirements

drone registration

Being a drone owner requires a few things. You need decent amount of cash if you want the high-end hardware, along with the patience and willingness to learn how to actually fly the thing. As of 2015, you also needed to register the aircraft (if weighs a half pound or more) with the Federal Aviation Administration. Now, a federal court in Washington, D.C. has ruled against that requirement, deeming the FAA's mandatory registration "unlawful."

Snapchat CEO doesn’t want poor people using his app, lawsuit claims

Snapchat Users

Earlier this year, a former Snapchat employee named Anthony Pompliano filed suit against Snap Inc. for inflating user numbers and flat-out lying to investors about the company's long-term potential for growth. Pompliano's lawsuit was originally filed this past January, albeit in redacted form. This week, an unredacted version of the lawsuit was made public and, not surprisingly, it contains some shocking revelations.

The most headline-grabbing blurb (via Variety) alleges that Pompliano, while attending a meeting regarding Snapchat's growth prospects, voiced concern about disappointing user adoption in international markets. Not even letting Pompliano finish his point, the lawsuit claims that Snap CEO Evan Spiegel interrupted Pompliano and boldly declared: "This app is only for rich people. I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain."

Trump just destroyed internet privacy

New Internet Privacy Law Signed Trump

Congress a few days ago voted to pass a repeal of Obama’s broadband privacy rules that prevented internet service providers from selling your personal data without obtaining consent first. The White House then confirmed that President Trump will sign the bill, without specifying when that will happen. It turns out that Trump inked the new law on Monday, making the whole thing official. Even if many of them say they will not sell your internet browsing history and other personal data, ISPs can now do so under the new rules.

Apple might have the most iconic line of smartphones on the planet but that doesn't mean it's had an easy go of it in every corner of the map. In China, for instance, Apple has been forced to fight for the privilege of even selling its products, with government officials constantly bashing the company and endless legal hurdles that regularly threaten to damage its reputation. This week, Apple can claim at least a small victory in the country as a Beijing court ruled in favor of Apple in a patent case versus a small Chinese phone maker which cried foul.
