Apple has agreed to pay a total of $450 million to resolve its long running court battle with U.S. federal and state governments, which claimed that the company conspired to fix prices for ebooks that it published on the iPhone and iPad alongside five major book publishers.
The amount of the settlement agreement was revealed in court documents this morning but it needs to be approved by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, In addition, the settlement is still waiting for the decision of an appeal made in 2013 in a New York federal court that Apple was liable for violating antitrust laws. The settlement itself was first disclosed a few weeks ago. Of that $450 million, about $400 million is supposed to be given to consumers in some way, although details were not revealed.
The U.S. Department of Justice and a number of state attorneys general filed a lawsuit against Apple in 2012, claiming that the company worked illegally with Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Penguin Group (USA) Inc, Macmillan and Simon & Schuster to raise prices for ebooks. The five book publishers have all since settled with the government for a total of $160 million in charges.
What do you think of the amount that Apple may have to pay to settle this long standing case?

Tesla’s next electric car officially has a name: The Model 3 . It seems like an all-around average sedan, no crazy up-swinging falcon doors or other outlandishness. Even the $35,000 price is pedestrian. It’s also what could make it as important to automotive history as the Model T.

Okay bear with us for a second: in 2009 the Flaming Lips covered Dark Side of the Moon. Now they’ve made that project even Flaming Lips-ier, by releasing an immersive companion album you’re supposed to play along with the original Pink Floyd recording. Oh, and it syncs up with the Wizard of Oz apparently.

Mountain View’s panoramic Street View may let you virtually explore Venice, dozens of North American parks and even the inside of an Oberon-class submarine, but until now, you had to figure out the train station on your own. Not anymore; Google’s latest Maps update focuses on the journey, adding Street Views of over 50 train and subway stations, 16 international airports and even a cable car station in Hong Kong. Google pitches the new views as an easy way to hammer out the physical logistics of travel, though it seems to cater to international travelers: so far, almost all of the updated panoramics are located outside of US borders. Still, we can’t complain — Street View is now the fastest way to get through airport security.
