  • Dominos Wants To Give You Free Chicken Pizza For Paying with Google Wallet

    The Atlantic Wire - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:31 PM EDT

    Domino's Pizza now allows hungry people to pay with Google Wallet when using their Android app, adding this new wrinkle to their plan to take over the digital world of pizza delivery.  While the new app is convenient to Android owning pizza lovers (along with Domino's Real Time Food Tracker) it's also making a statement about their relationship with Google. Google even mentioned the collaboration in their own first quarter earnings call, no doubt hoping other retailers will take notice. While Google Wallet has been available since 2011, the company has been pushing the product hard in the last year. Last May, they began allowing users to send money as a Gmail attachment between Wallets.

    Business 2 Community - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:30 PM EDT

    Heard the one about France banning digital workers from accessing their work emails after 6pm? No, it’s not a joke… but it’s not strictly true either. Last week the internet and the newspapers were awash with the news that a new legally-binding agreement had come into place in France which means employers must encourage staff...

  • Leonardo DiCaprio might play Steve Jobs in upcoming biopic

    The Verge - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:26 PM EDT

    The director and lead actor of the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic are still up in the air, and another pair of big names are now reportedly being eyed for the roles: Leonardo DiCaprio and Slumdog Millionaire-director Danny Boyle. The Hollywood Reporter says that Sony Pictures is now in talks to sign Boyle, who has already approached DiCaprio about the possibility of starring as Jobs. The Social Network director David Fincher had previously been in talks to direct with Christian Bale starring, but Sony is reportedly replacing him over high pay requests. The combination of Boyle and DiCaprio would also be likely to make the film appeal to a far broader audience than the pairing of Fincher and Bale might.

  • Netflix blasts AT&T fibre network; opposes Comcast, TWC merger

    Reuters - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:15 PM EDT

    By Marina Lopes NEW YORK (Reuters) - Netflix Inc, the video streaming service, on Monday criticized AT&T's high-speed fibre network as inadequate and slow, while renewing its call for AT&T to interconnect directly with Netflix. Netflix made the remarks in a letter to shareholders on its first-quarter results. The company has been calling for greater protections for open Internet rules, also known as net neutrality, which require Internet service providers to give consumers equal access to all lawful content without restrictions or tiered charges. Netflix, in a letter signed by its chief executive, Reed Hastings, and chief financial officer, David Wells, said AT&T's fibre-based U-verse service has "lower performance than many DSL" Internet service providers.

  • Why Nike is getting out of the wearable game

    The Verge - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:09 PM EDT

    After great success with the release of the Grimace pogo stick and the Hamburglar jump rope, we are sad to announce that the McNugget Pedometer will end its run next week. While the team behind the device was and still is very proud of it, the number of devices sold has not met our expectations. Apparently both the desire to consume the device upon purchase, as well as the "rotting" smell that tends to appear after about two days of owning the device has led to both critics and consumers being less than pleased with our product. We apologize for letting you, the customer, down. ... More »Why Nike is getting out of the wearable game

  • Apple adds new channels to Apple TV ahead of major upcoming refresh

    BGR.com - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:05 PM EDT

    In the past few months, rumors have been heating up that Apple will begin taking TV more seriously with a refreshed Apple TV. Apple has been negotiating with Comcast about the next-generation Apple TV, and earlier this month, Comcast hinted in FCC filings that Apple is working on a set-top box. According to respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will release an updated Apple TV later this year. In advance of this rumored launch, 9to5Mac is reporting that Apple has added three new channels to its current Apple TV: A&E, The History Channel, and Lifetime. This brings popular shows such as Duck Dynasty and Pawn Stars to Apple TV customers. While a subscription is required, 9to5Mac notes that you can watch the most recent episodes of popular shows for More »Apple adds new channels to Apple TV ahead of major upcoming refresh

  • Patent owner Intellectual Ventures cleared for trial vs. investor

    Reuters - Mon, Apr 21, 2014 6:00 PM EDT

    By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday ruled that patent owner Intellectual Ventures can go to trial next month against one of its investors even though IV will not be allowed to present key damages evidence to a jury, according to a court filing. Chipmaker Xilinx invested in two Intellectual Ventures funds and licensed a portion of IV's patents, but resisted IV's entreaties to license more patents in 2010, court filings show. Xilinx Inc eventually asked a California federal judge to declare those IV patents invalid, while IV countersued in Delaware, accusing Xilinx of infringement. The proceeding comes in the midst of a heated debate over whether it is too easy for patent owners to extract large royalty payments, and whether patent buying firms spur or stifle innovation.
