Spotify shouldn't fight apple when it's catch phrases and factual omissions it shouldn't stead run for office last week. The streaming music service filed suit against up with the European Commission, alleging anticompetitive behaviour the next day. Spotify CEO Daniel AC expounded on his company stands at the international conference on competition. And Berlin that night apple responded on it site are giving that some Spotify facts were not in fact factual and saying that Spotify is looking for a free ride on the IOS apps store now spun up is back employing name-calling with word salad on the side variety. Ran a short recap of the story so far over the weekend. Adding spotify's response to Apple's response to spotify's, original statements. According spotify's latest statement. Every monopolist will suggest that they have done. Nothing wrong. And will argue that they have the best interests of competitors and consumers at heart and that way, Apple's response to our complaint before the European Commission is not new and isn't tirelessly in line with our expectations. We filed our complaint because Apple's actions hurt competition and consumers and are in clear violation of the law. This is evident Naples believed. That spotify's users on I o s or apple customers and not Spotify customers, which goes to the very heart of the issue with apple we respect the process, the European Commission must now undertake to conduct its review. This is evident apples believed that spotify's users on I o s are apple customers and not Spotify customers and could I get that with vinaigrette? Word of a lawsuit over which we can wonder for a day before deciding to forget about it. Speaking of which I guess I should let you know that accord has reached decision that apple os, Qualcomm, thirty one million dollars for violating three of Qualcomm patents. While another court has ruled that Qualcomm owes apple a rebate payment worth close to a billion dollars. I you can see why I've stopped doing more than occasionally glancing at the apple v. Qualcomm v apple cases and second. This case is not likely to come close to the size and scope of the one with Qualcomm. A question for people of a certain age, you remember Maxell the people who made audiotape and cassettes and so on apple insider says they're suing apple for allegedly infringing ten patents. Some of which Maxell inherited from Hitachi. According to the report three of the patents are connected to walking navigation and Maxell sites. Features like find my friends and pedestrian routes and apple maps and fringe men's a third patent involves apple camera design while a fourth relates to wireless communication and airdrop file transfers also cited are one covering cell phone technology one. For ring alerts one for controlling power consumption, one for unlocking one device with another and one which the company says is violated by FaceTime video calls, and I tuned video a wide range of apple devices are list as infringing according to the peace including iphones, ipads, and. Max up to twenty eighteen models. The iphone ten is repeatedly cited as an example and MAC cells complaint filed through a US district court in Texarkana, Texas Maxell says it talked with apple from twenty thirteen to twenty eighteen about some sort of mutually beneficial solution. Now, the lawsuit which I would imagine we can forget about for sometime to come. Results from the apple watch Stanford University hard study appear positive without too many, false positives and gadget says the university has released the results of its work while it appears to have gone. Well, the B says there are a few caveats, according to the report only zero point five percent of more than four hundred thousand volunteers received warnings of irregular heart rhythms. But physicians later verified that eighty four percent of those notifications were atrial fibrillation or a fib episodes and thus potential signs of trouble. The piece goes on to say just thirty four percent of those who receive notifications and agreed to wear an e c g patch for a week showed irregularities. But that was expected when a Feb is in remittance surprisingly only about fifty seven percent of people who got a warning went to a doctor. Which makes me wonder why the others took part still the tax seems promising especially since it wasn't as advanced as today's apple watch the piece points out that the test only included apple watches from series three and earlier series four complete with a built in e c g didn't come out until the test was winding down. Here's new shortage disappoint kids on Christmas morning through twenty twenty one. Maybe Bloomberg ran a piece last week saying WalMart plans to introduce an inexpensive kid friendly tablet, computer under its oh, n n Storebrand part of a broader redesign of its electron IX department. First of all, how is an an WalMart's brand I only know an an is the abbreviation for the onion news network, which is a parody is this part of that if so well played, but I doubt it is. The piece continues the device will be made by Chinese supplier and run on Google's Android operating system. According to photos found on a database of wireless product applications filed with the US Federal Communications Commission. I said I earlier that brings us to second. There is no shortage of branded and beige. Box Android, tablets, meant to undercut ipad on price from hardware-software standpoint. What is WalMart tablet likely to bring to the table? You can ask WalMart, but they won't say the spokesperson for the retail giant confirmed that the device is in the works, though, she declined to say what it'll cost one it'll be out or anything else about the tablet that said they will likely make some sales quoting Bloomberg. Again, retailers have found some success with kid-friendly tablets priced well below Apple's ipad, who's pro proline starts at seven hundred ninety nine dollars Amazon developed its own tablet. Brand originally called the kindle fire in twenty eleven which includes versions for kids two years later. Britain's Tesco p l c introduced a popular tablet called the huddle that was snatched up by UK parents, but the company discontinued the line in twenty fifteen after change in senior manager. Moment. So that was so successful that they stopped selling it for years ago. Also when comparing pad WalMart's unannounced, kid-friendly, Android, tablet, why compared to the seven hundred ninety nine dollar I pad pro who's buying pad pro for their kid? I had many starts at three hundred ninety nine dollars while the current nine point seven inch ipad starts at three twenty nine. It's like saying retailers have found some success with kid-friendly roller skates priced, well below Lexus. Who's twenty nineteen? I s starts at thirty eight thousand dollars. I mean, it's not exactly like that. Then again, a low priced kid-friendly, Android tablet, isn't exactly like an ipad. Pro. Banana grit. More news in a moment.
