It’s Up to the Judge Now in Apple’s Big Anti-Trust Case (The Atlantic)
The Department of Justice’s anti-trust case alleging collusion among Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and five major publishers to set prices on e-books ended last week. All of the publishers involved, insisting they had done nothing wrong, had already settled with DOJ and a group of state attorneys general rather than confront the very expensive litigation and the prospect of enormous fines should they lose.

Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) launched a service on Tuesday allowing government agencies and corporate clients to secure and manage devices powered by Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Android platform and Apple Inc.
