Apple to launch new iPhone, iPad in March: 9to5mac

(Reuters) - Apple Inc is on target to introduce its next iPhone and iPad models on March 15, and aims to start selling the devices in the same week, technology blog 9to5Mac reported, citing sources. Apple, which will introduce a new 4-inch iPhone, dubbed the "iPhone 5se", and a new iPad Air at a launch event, is unlikely to take pre-orders for the new devices, the blog reported. The technology giant has hit a trough in iPhone demand.



Google says will not participate in 2016 U.S. airwaves auction

NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google will not participate in the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's upcoming auction of broadcast airwaves that can help the wireless industry improve coverage, a spokeswoman told Reuters on Friday. Some industry watchers had expected Internet search giant Google to be a dark horse participant in the auction. Google last participated in a 2008 FCC auction but did not buy any airwaves.



Twitter says Dorsey continues to forego direct compensation

(Reuters) - Twitter Inc Chief Executive Jack Dorsey has agreed to continue to forego any form of direct compensation, a regulatory filing by the company showed on Friday. Dorsey in June agreed to no salary until the company's compensation committee agreed upon a package for him. The committee decided on Wednesday to introduce a performance-based equity compensation program for Twitter's top executives to tie their performance more closely with that of the company, according to the filing.



Court says Facebook nude painting case can be tried in France

A French court ruled on Friday that a case against social networking company Facebook over a painting of a nude woman can be tried in France, rejecting Facebook's argument that it is governed by Californian law. Facebook blocked the account of a French professor and art lover after he uploaded a picture of Gustave Courbet?s 1866 canvas 'The Origin of the World', which shows a close-up view of female genitals. The Paris Appeal Court's decision upheld a lower court ruling in March 2015 that a clause in Facebook's terms of agreement signed by users was 'abusive' in reserving exclusive rights to a California court to hear disputes.



Visa's investment in Square represents about 1 percent stake

Visa Inc , the world's largest credit and debit card company, said on Friday it currently has about a 1 percent stake in mobile payments company Square Inc based on a 2011 investment. Visa told Reuters its current holdings are just more than 4.19 million shares of Class B common stock. The company has the option to convert up to 3.52 million of these shares into Class A stock, according to a disclosure filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, which would give it at most a 9.99 percent stake in the share class.



Printer maker Lexmark wins patent case against cartridge reseller

A printer cartridge reseller infringed the patent rights of Lexmark International Inc when it imported Lexmark's toner products back into the United States after they were first sold abroad, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Friday. In a victory that reinforces U.S. patent owners' ability to control the use of their products after they are sold, the court also found Impression Products Inc liable for selling refurbished Lexmark cartridges that were originally marketed for a single use under its return and recycle program. The decision "will assist Lexmark in its efforts to combat the importation and sale of inferior toner cartridges that infringe our intellectual property rights," said the company's vice president and general counsel, Bob Patton, in a statement.
