Apple goes to court again
Apple later this month will face another yet another day in court, as a California Court of Appeals has finally scheduled a hearing for an appeal on behalf of bloggers and online journalists who claim their sources should be protected from subpoenas. Represented by The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Ogrady et. al are set to face off against Apple on April 20th in a hearing to decide whether a lower court erred when it refused to protect PowerPage publisher Jason O'Grady's communications and unpublished materials, according to IT News. The EFF will argue that a lower court judge erred when it said that "trade secret" law trumped consitutional protections. The lower-court allowed refused to offer protections against a subpoena to the PowerPage's ISP Nfox -- issued in December of 2004 -- that sought to uncover materials O'Grady obtained for articles about "Asteroid," according to report.
Apple-Hynix flash details
Apple last December agreed to buy at least 20 percent of Hynix Semiconductor NAND flash memory chips until 2010, according to the South Korean chipmaker's latest SEC filings. In November, Apple announced it would prepay $1.25 billion for flash memory, promising $250 each to five different companies: Hynix, Intel, Micron, Samsung Electronics and Toshiba. The recent Hynix filing indicates that Apple agreed in December to buy 40 million gigabytes of flash memory chips this year from Hynix alone, according to Apple also said it would increase orders by at least 180 percent a year until the end of the decade, according to the document. "Every quarter, Cupertino, California-based Apple will match orders to Hynix from the preceding three-month period or buy at least 20 percent of the company's NAND production, whichever is larger, according to the document. The chips will be sold at a price that won't exceed what was specified in the December agreement, Hynix said, without specifying the amount," according to Bloomberg.
