Exclusive: Bitcoin promoter to plead guilty to unlicensed money transmission

By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - Bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem has reached a plea deal to resolve U.S. Shrem, the former vice chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, will plead guilty next Thursday in New York federal court to unlicensed money transmission, Marc Agnifilo, his lawyer told Reuters in an email.

Digital Ally says camera inquiries up five-fold after Ferguson shooting
(Reuters) - Digital Ally Inc forecast full-year revenue of about $22.5 million, encouraged by a "five-fold" rise in inquiries for its wearable cameras from police departments in the aftermath of the fatal shooting in Ferguson this month. The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, sparked demand to hold law enforcement officials accountable and in turn fueled interest in companies such as Digital Ally and Taser International Inc. The company's 2014 revenue forecast was first reported by USA Today on Thursday, citing Chief Executive Stanton Ross, according to a regulatory filing on Friday. Digital Ally said on Thursday it had received its first camera order after the Ferguson incident from the Michigan police department.
Microsoft will not hand over overseas email, despite order

By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A judge on Friday lifted a suspension on her order directing Microsoft Corp to turn over a customer's emails stored overseas to U.S. Microsoft in particular was stung by revelations last year by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden and has been at pains to prove to customers that it does not allow the U.S. Preska had delayed enforcement of the government's search warrant so Microsoft could appeal. Preska agreed, saying her order "merely confirmed the government's temporary forbearing of its right to stay enforcement of the order it secured." She added that "the fact the court has not closed this case cuts against Microsoft's argument" that her order was final and appealable.



Intel hires senior Qualcomm exec to boost mobile business

By Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Chipmaker Intel Corp has hired Amir Faintuch, a senior executive at rival Qualcomm Inc , to step up efforts in mobile and Internet-connected gadgets. Hiring a senior executive from a major competitor is rare for Intel, which is known in Silicon Valley for its insular culture, and it reflects the eagerness of the Santa Clara, California, chipmaker to improve its struggling mobile business. Faintuch, who previously oversaw Qualcomm's networking and connectivity businesses as president of Qualcomm Atheros, is joining Intel as a senior vice president and co-general manager of the Platform Engineering Group, Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy said on Friday.



AT&T sues Cox Communications for patent infringement

AT&T is suing Cox Communications for infringing eight patents dealing with network quality after the regional cable provider ignored its complaints about the issue and made "billions" off of the technology, according to a new lawsuit. In the suit filed Friday in Delaware federal court against Cox and more than 30 of its regional units, AT&T said that Cox had been warned about the claims of patent infringement as far back as 2009. AT&T claims the patents were infringed in Cox's use and sale of digital video recorders, set top boxes, Internet and telephone systems, according to the lawsuit.

By Julie Ingwersen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Bovine avatars with funny hats in an app are being corralled into helping to teach young people in the United States about agricultural markets and risk.

"We heard from educators who asked us, 'How can I get this in my classroom?'" said Laurie Bischel, CME's executive director of corporate marketing and communications.

ALS Association abandons its effort to trademark the 'ice bucket challenge'

Following backlash, the ALS Association says it's given up on its attempt to trademark both "ice bucket challenge," and the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge." In a note on its Facebook page today, the ALS Association said it understood people's concerns over any one group owning those phrases, adding that it planned to withdraw both applications, which were filed earlier this week. We've received several messages regarding the trademark applications we filed. We filed for these trademarks in good faith as a measure to protect the Ice Bucket Challenge from misuse after consulting with the families who initiated the challenge this summer. According to the group, the trademark effort was originally intended to keep would-be fraudsters from cashing in on the success of Ice Bucket Challenge.

See the gorgeous luxury submarine made by a former James Bond villain

For the past 18 years, a company called DeepFlight has specialized in creating high-end, recreational submarines for well-off aquatic adventurers. As the company proudly notes on its website: "DeepFlight personal submarines are ideal toys for superyachts, resorts, and tour operators because of their capability to open up the undersea world in three dimensions." In an added twist that seems almost too good to be true, the company was founded by Graham Hawkes, a longtime British marine engineer who built and piloted a submarine that attacked James Bond in the 1980 film For Your Eyes Only. Hawkes and DeepFlight were recently the subject of an enthralling Betabeat profile, in which the founder relates stories of piloting his craft with the likes of Richard Branson (Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tom Perkins is another DeepFlight submarine owner).



Netflix says it lost customers thanks to slow streaming on Comcast

Why did Netflix decide to cave in and pay Comcast for a better direct connection to its network? Because apparently slow Netflix streaming on Comcast was costing the company customers. CNN reports that Netflix this week explained to the Federal Communications Commission that the quality of Netflix streams on Comcast had become so poor that the company had no choice but to pay up for a better connection. ?For many subscribers, the bit rate was so poor that Netflix?s streaming video service became unusable,? Netflix told the FCC. ?Some of them canceled their Netflix subscription on the spot, citing the unacceptable quality of Netflix?s video streams and Netflix?s inability to do anything to change the situation? We had to do something to

U.S. judge halts major part of Texas law restricting abortions
District Judge Lee Yeakel said the so-called "ambulatory surgical center requirement" was unjust because it placed an undue burden on women by reducing the number of clinics where they could seek abortions and the regulations had no compelling public health interests. "The court concludes, after examining the act and the context in which it operates, that the ambulatory-surgical center requirement was intended to close existing licensed abortion clinics," Yeakel wrote in the decision. The requirement was to have gone into effect on Sept. 1. Under it, clinics would have had to meet a set of building standards ranging from widening halls to having facilities for certain surgeries that abortion rights advocates said were unnecessary, especially when an abortion is medically induced.
