Releasing a new flagship smartphone has become tricky because you don’t want to release it too closely to new Samsung flagships that launch in the spring or new iPhones that launch in the fall. With this in mind, it looks like LG will be releasing its latest flagship device in July, according to a new report from ZDNet Korea. “An August launch seems too late considering the current market situation,” an unnamed LG executive tells ZDNet Korea. “We’ve completed many features that our competitors don’t have very quickly. (The G3) will go on sale on more carriers than any other LG Electronics’ smartphones.” The G3 looks like it could be one of the big sleeper Android phones released this year.

It was too good to be true after all. Speaking with Ars Technica on Wednesday, a Google spokesperson made it clear that there are no plans to bring Google Fiber to the New York area at this time, despite a seemingly surreptitious job listing discovered earlier this week. “Don’t read into the job listing,” said the spokesperson. “We’ve had a full team of folks working on Fiber in the New York office (and other locations around the world) for years. We don’t currently have any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York. We’re entirely focused on building out our networks in Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, and on exploring the possibility of bringing Fiber to the 34 locations we announced in More »Google doesn’t have ‘any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York’

Denys Zhadanov, the 25-year-old marketing director of Readdle, a Ukrainian app-development company, peers out from behind the wheel of his gleaming white Volkswagen Tiguan, vainly searching for a landmark. We’re lost somewhere off Akademika Filatova street, a long four-lane boulevard cutting through Odessa, a sprawling Black Sea port of a million people in southern Ukraine.

It’s way too early to declare BlackBerry on the comeback trail, but Wired nonetheless finds a lot to like in the company’s recent investment in health tech startup NantHealth, a move that the publication calls BlackBerry’s “first good idea in years.” Why is this particular investment such a good idea? As Wired explains, it’s a sign that BlackBerry has really and truly thrown in the towel trying to compete with Apple and Google and is instead focussing on niche markets where its core strengths are actually valued. “After years of lousy calls and stubborn attempts to stay relevant with consumers, the NantHealth investment is a promising sign that BlackBerry is doubling down on niche markets — the one place where More »Does BlackBerry finally know what it’s doing again?

Online food delivery service GrubHub settled a probe by the New York state attorney general on Wednesday by agreeing to not to charge fees that would allow it to make money off customers' tips. The agreement with the state attorney general requires GrubHub Inc to make sure that the fees it charges restaurants for its service, which allows customers to order meals online, does not sap tips from delivery people or other workers. "Our settlement with GrubHub changes a billing formula that may have been used by restaurants to shortchange workers out of their hard-earned tips," New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement. GrubHub's current and past contracts may have affected thousands of delivery workers, he said. More »GrubHub agrees to tip-free restaurant fees with NY Attorney General
By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - Mexican mobile phone operator Iusacell SA de CV sued IBM Corp on Wednesday, accusing the U.S. technology giant of making fraudulent representations that caused it to lose $2.5 billion (1.4 billion pounds) in profits. The lawsuit, filed in federal district court in New York, centred on a contract that Iusacell said IBM induced it to enter into in Mexico. "Events subsequent to the execution of the agreement have revealed that IBM both knowingly misrepresented and wrongfully concealed from Iusacell material facts both before and during the parties' relationship," Iusacell said in the complaint. IBM said in a statement that the lawsuit was a "transparent attempt" by Iusacell, which is co-owned by media and retail mogul Ricardo Salinas' Grupo Salinas and broadcast giant Grupo Televisa, to avoid its contractual obligations.
