Founder of Facebook's Oculus hit with lawsuit

By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The founder of virtual reality glasses maker Oculus VR Inc, acquired by Facebook Inc for $2 billion, has been accused of taking confidential information he learned while working with another company and passing it off as his own, according to a lawsuit filed this week. The plaintiff, Hawaii-based company Total Recall Technologies, said it hired Oculus founder Palmer Luckey in 2011 to build a prototype head mounted display. Facebook's $2 billion acquisition of Oculus last year was its first-ever hardware deal, as the company sought a way into the fast-growing wearable devices arena.



Contest for Nokia's HERE seen as a three-way race

By Andreas Cremer and Arno Schuetze NECKARSULM, Germany (Reuters) - The contest for Nokia's maps business has become a three-way race between German carmakers, a consortium including Uber and Baidu, and a third group including China's Tencent and Navinfo, people familiar with the process said. Finland's Nokia has started an auction of its maps business HERE while it completes its 15.6 billion euros ($17.2 billion) takeover of network equipment maker Alcatel Lucent . German automakers Daimler , BMW and Volkswagen's premium brand Audi have teamed up with private equity firm General Atlantic to form what is being described as the "Industry consortium", two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.



Audi will enhance Chinese connected-car services with Baidu

Germany's Audi will enhance connected-car services in China to meet growing demand for driver-assistance systems and driverless technology in the world's largest auto market. Volkswagen's flagship luxury brand said on Friday it will jointly develop navigation map data, positioning algorithms and point-of-interest functions with China's web services provider Baidu. Chinese Internet companies and auto makers have been quick to team up to start developing partly self-driving and Internet-connected cars, following a path already trodden by U.S. tech giants Google Inc and Apple Inc. "We are now taking our next big step in China," Chief Executive Rupert Stadler said at the carmaker's annual shareholder meeting in Neckarsulm, Germany.



U.S. moves to facilitate social media in Crimea
The U.S. Treasury Department on Friday authorized American businesses and individuals to facilitate personal communications over the Internet like social media, instant messaging and photo sharing in Crimea, annexed by Russia from Ukraine last year. The department's Office of Foreign Assets Control announced it had issued a general license allowing for the exportation of such services and software to people in Crimea. A department spokesperson, who asked not to be named, said, "The general license allows personal Internet-based communications ? such as social networking, instant messaging, and emails ? and certain software necessary to enable it, between the United States and U.S. persons and Crimea." Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and numerous other online platforms were covered by the action.
French court sets rules for alternative taxis such as Uber

France's highest administrative court on Friday approved two out of three main restrictions on private chauffeured vehicle services such as Uber that were introduced last year after complaints from traditional cab drivers of unfair competition. Uber, an online service that links its drivers with passengers through a smartphone app, claimed a victory in its challenge to the regulations because the court decided to allow it to charge by the kilometer (mile) instead of giving a price at the moment of booking. It also backed the restrictions on apps like Uber's that indicate to potential clients on their smartphones both the location of nearby drivers and their availability.



Oculus founder sued for using confidential information



Elon Musk created his own grade school for the children of SpaceX employees

Evidently relying on the old adage "If you want something done right, do it yourself," Elon Musk is now a school founder. In a recent interview on Beijing Television, the Tesla founder revealed that he opened a school, called Ad Astra, last year for his five children. "They weren't doing the things I thought should be done," Musk said during the interview. Musk hired one of the teachers from the boys' school to help found Ad Astra, and the school now teaches 14 elementary-school-aged kids from mostly SpaceX employees' families.
