Millions of Apple users can now sue Google for its Safari hack

Millions of Apple Safari users in Britain have been given the green light to sue Google amidst proven allegations that the search giant implemented a workaround to bypass Safari security and install tracking cookies on both desktop and iOS versions of Apple’s web browser.

Why? Because over 90% of Google’s ad revenue comes from advertising and they wanted to deliver higher-cost targeted advertising to OS X and iOS users.

Indiana cops find an active meth lab inside a Walmart bathroom

When we think of meth labs, we typically think of someone running one out of their RV or their basement or, if they’re super-fancy, running one in a massive underground facility a la Walter White in later seasons of Breaking Bad. However, it looks like you can operate a meth lab in a much smaller space if you really need to… such as a Walmart bathroom. More →

Such is the case with Drug Enforcement Agency special agent Matt Fairbanks, who explained recently to The Washington Post that one of the unheralded dangers of pot legalization is that it could lead to a population of stoner rabbits who become too lazy to run away from predators.

Marijuana Legalized In Alaska

You have a brand-new reason to visit Alaska – it’s just legalized pot

You have a brand-new reason to visit Alaska – it’s just legalized pot

Given that smoking marijuana is sometimes the only way to understand certain statements made by one of its former governors, it’s all too proper that Alaska this week became the third state in the U.S. to legalize pot. The Associated Press brings us word that smoking, growing and possessing pot is now legal in America’s biggest state “thanks to a voter initiative aimed at clearing away 40 years of conflicting laws and court rulings.” More →

Video evidence released in case of LG exec allegedly sabotaging a Samsung washing machine

Welcome to the weird and wild world of South Korean consumer electronics giants. While Apple and Samsung’s court battles are certainly the most widely publicized, LG now finds itself in Samsung’s sights for an entirely different reason: According to Samsung’s allegations, LG executive Jo Seong-Jin, and two other LG employees intentionally damaged a Samsung washing machine in a German store.

The evidence supporting Samsung’s case was compelling enough that an indictment has been issued, and now some of the most damning evidence may have come to light. LG on Monday released some video evidence it claims exonerates Jo, however Samsung says that the evidence has been tampered with. More →

The FTC’s latest ruling should send a chill down AT&T’s spine

Is your “unlimited” mobile data really unlimited if your carrier throttles it down to slower speeds at certain times? Per Re/code, the Federal Trade Commission this week ordered prepaid mobile carrier TracFone to pay $40 million for throttling its customers’ data connections despite the fact that they had signed up for “unlimited” data plans. However, it’s the FTC’s rationale for why TracFone should pay up that really ought to make larger carriers like AT&T worry. More →
