  2. Google has recently announced the latest phones in the Pixel lineup. Details are still scarce as Google is choosing to slowly release information ahead of the formal launch.
  3. Summary: Apple must allow external links within apps that direct customers to (other) purchasing mechanisms Apple is not an illegal monopoly in mobile gaming Epic must pay Apple 30% of the revenue collected via Epic Direct Payment Conclusion: This trial highlighted that “big tech” encompasses many markets, including as relevant here, the submarket for mobile gaming transactions. This lucrative, $100 billion, market has not been fully tapped and is ripe for economic exploitation. As a major player in the wider video gaming industry, Epic Games brought this lawsuit to challenge Apple’s control over access to a considerable portion of this submarket for mobile gaming transactions. Ultimately, Epic Games overreached. As a consequence, the trial record was not as fulsome with respect to antitrust conduct in the relevant market as it could have been. Thus, and in summary, the Court does not find that Apple is an antitrust monopolist in the submarket for mobile gaming transactions. However, it does find that Apple’s conduct in enforcing anti-steering restrictions is anticompetitive. A remedy to eliminate those provisions is appropriate. This measured remedy will increase competition, increase transparency, increase consumer choice and information while preserving Apple’s iOS ecosystem which has procompetitive justifications. Moreover, it does not require the Court to micromanage business operations which courts are not well-suited to do as the Supreme Court has appropriately recognized. A separate judgment shall issue based on the findings of fact and conclusions of law set forth above, the Court will enter a separate permanent injunction barring the noted restraints. For the reasons set forth herein, the Court finds in favor of Apple on all counts except with respect to violation of California’s Unfair Competition law (Count Ten) and only partially with respect to its claim for Declaratory Relief. The preliminary injunction previously ordered is terminated. Each party shall bear its own costs. No party shall file any post-trial motions based on previously-made arguments. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/21060628-epic-apple-injunction
  4. "Google and Apple Inc. will have to open their app stores to alternative payment systems in South Korea, threatening their lucrative commissions on digital sales. A bill passed Tuesday by South Korea’s National Assembly is the first in the world to dent the tech giants’ dominance over how apps on their platforms sell their digital goods. It will become law once signed by President Moon Jae-in, whose party strongly endorsed the legislation. The law amends South Korea’s Telecommunications Business Act to prevent large app-market operators from requiring the use of their in-app purchasing systems. It also bans operators from unreasonably delaying the approval of apps or deleting them from the marketplace—provisions meant to head off retaliation against app makers." https://www.wsj.com/articles/google-apple-hit-in-south-korea-by-worlds-first-law-ending-their-dominance-over-app-store-payments-11630403335?mod=rss_Technology
  5. This very trustworthy news site has reported: Dubai (dpo) - Could this city be any gaudier?! Today, the world’s first skyscraper yacht embarked on its maiden voyage in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa building at a height of 830 m (2723 ft) served as an example for the megaproject, which was commissioned by well-known hotel owner and entrepreneur Emad al-Shareif. Standing proud at 942 m (3,018 ft) in height and 200 storeys, the superyacht surpasses even the Burj Khalifa by more than 100 m (328 ft). The “Grand Arabia” offers everything you could ever wish for. It features 22 luxury restaurants, 12 cinemas, 14 gyms, three brothels and nine mega-discos, each on five stories, as well as seven branches of McDonald’s and more. The top 38 floors feature a further attraction – indoor bungee jumping. Travelling from the first floor to the 200th floor, takes about twelve minutes in an elevator so several helipads have also been installed to enable passengers to travel between floors more quickly. Other than its height, there are no technical differences between this yacht and other ships. According to the construction engineers, the only additions are a more powerful engine, more on-board personnel and a bigger anchor. However, there are some logistical limits: the floating hotel can only navigate in open waters or in rivers with bridges of a minimum height of 1,000 m (3,281 ft). Also, caution is advised when dealing with strong winds and waves since the 200th floor can sway laterally up to 400 m (1,312 ft). This is why particularly sturdy safety glass windows have been fitted – they will prevent passengers on the upper floors from being tossed into the sea. According to media reports, the owner wishes to recoup at least some of the huge $130 billion spent on construction by renting out 80 of the 200 floors to business clients. Offshore companies especially are expected to snap up these luxurious offices. The remaining floors are intended for private use. What do you think?
  6. Disney+ has now surpassed 100 million global paid subscribers. It was launched in November 2019, which means it crosses this milestone in just 16 months. The initial goal was to reach 60 to 90 million paying subscribers by 2024 but the streaming platform smashed that goal when it reached 73.7 million paying subscribers on its first anniversary. This growth was partially driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. It now expects to hit 230 to 260 million paying subscribers by 2024. For comparison, Netflix had 203.7 million paying subscribers by the end of 2020. Apple does not release subscriber numbers for Apple TV+ but it is believed to be eclipsed by both Disney+ and Netflix, given that they continue to extend free trials for new subscribers. https://thewaltdisneycompany.com/disney-tops-100-million-global-paid-subscriber-milestone/

  11. Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. will resume ticket sales next year following the first flight carrying founder Richard Branson to space, a milestone intended to signal the beginning of the company’s tourism trips. The billionaire’s journey is likely to occur late in the first quarter of 2021, Chief Executive Officer Michael Colglazier said Thursday after Virgin Galactic reported earnings. The company already has a roster of 600 ticket holders who have paid as much as $250,000 each. It suspended sales after a 2014 crash killed a test pilot. Branson’s voyage had been planned for this year but was postponed because of work delays tied to the coronavirus pandemic. Covid-19 “has led to accumulated impacts to both schedule and cost efficiency” that will continue into next year, Virgin Galactic said. “Building spaceships during a pandemic is materially less efficient than normal,” Colglazier said on a conference call with analysts. The company is planning the next test flight to space of its VSS Unity craft within a four-day window starting Nov. 19. That will mark the vehicle’s first trip to space from Virgin Galactic’s Spaceport America launch site in New Mexicoafter earlier flights that began in California. A second spaceship, which is under construction in California, will debut in the first quarter of 2021. Bloomberg Source
