Second-highest European court sides with EC over Intel anti-competitive behavior fine
Intel must pay a 1.06 billion euro ($1.44 billion) fine handed to it by the European Union five years ago, the second-highest court in Europe has ordered.

Reuters reports that Apple would charge the stores approximately $700 USD per unit sold illegally.
