Egypt's first financial inclusion conference; 'Towards Greater Access to Financial & Government Services in Egypt' has kicked off this morning in Cairo. The one-day conference is organized on Tuesday by Fawry – Egypt's leading nationwide Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) – among strong participation from both local and foreign institutions as well as officials from the Egyptian government, notably Ahmed Darwish – the former minister of administrative development. The conference explores the best ways in which financial and governmental services can be extended to micro enterprises and Egypt's most vulnerable, a process that Fawry believes is integral to facilitating the engagement of the informal sector in the state's system and spreading social justice to all socio-economic classes. It will also present how technology and innovation drive economic growth and social justice. "We at Fawry believe that increased financial inclusion, which extends to Egypt's most needy as well the country's many mirco enterprises, is crucial for the spread of social justice and increasing their integration within the state system." said Ashraf Sabry, CEO of Fawry "The challenge of financial inclusion requires out-of-the-box thinking, and we think that today's conference is an ideal vehicle for promoting and fostering the thinking needed to generate financial inclusion solutions." The conference is being held in partnership with MasterCard and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Among the distinguished list of international experts are several from fellow developing markets such as Denise Diaz of the Central Bank of Brazil, Carlos Marmolejo from Consar in Mexico, and Abhishek Sinha from EKO in India.

Apple Inc reached an out-of-court settlement with U.S. states and other complainants in an e-book price-fixing class action lawsuit on Monday, effectively avoiding a trial in which the iPad maker faced more than $800 million in claims. U.S. District Judge in Manhattan Denise Cote ordered the parties to submit a filing to seek approval of their settlement within 30 days. The terms of the settlement, which still needs court approval, have not been revealed. The U.S. Department of Justice sued Apple and five publishers in April 2012, accusing them of working together illegally to increase e-book prices. Since then, 33 states and U.S. territories have separately sued Apple on behalf of their consumers, while individual consumers in other states and territories filed a class action lawsuit. The complainants are seeking up to $840 million in damages for e-book customers. The exact amount of damages was to be litigated at a trial scheduled for July 14. The publishers - Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, Penguin Group (USA) Inc, Macmillan and Simon & Schuster Inc, previously agreed to pay more than $166 million to settle related antitrust charges.

Pictures of what the iPhone 6 would allegedly look like has made its way into the wild, and shows the rumored 5.5-inch variant. Just this April, an image on what's said to be the iPhone 6 made its way online, and is said to be thinner, and include a bulging camera. Now, over on Twitter, reputable Apple leaker Sonny Dickson has posted what he says are pictures of Apple's next iPhone models. In the image, we can clearly see a standard-sized model that's sized at 4.7, and a bigger variant that's 5.5-inches. While fake images are almost always a possibility, Dickson has correctly leaked images of the iPhone 5C that turned out to be the real deal. Before you assume that Dickson has units on hand, he confirmed that the iPhones pictured are dummy phones. Keep in mind that even if Dickson has been right in the past, there's still a very good possibility that the final design could change. If history is any indication, Apple should be revealing the latest iteration of the iPhone very soon for an expected late summer or early fall release window. More»

Intel Corp. (INTC)’s stock soared to its highest level in more than a decade, fueled by an improved sales forecast as companies start spending more to upgrade their aging computer systems. The stock today jumped 6.8 percent to close at $29.87, the highest level since February 2004, after the world’s largest semiconductor maker raised its second-quarter revenue projection yesterday after the markets closed. Intel also said annual sales will increase for the first time since 2011, buoyed by improving business demand for personal computers. The higher forecast provides another hint of optimism in the PC industry, where Intel gets most of its revenue, after two straight years of declining global shipments. Even as consumers shun PCs in favor of mobile devices, demand for Intel’s microprocessors is getting a lift as companies replace aging computer systems, said Ian Ing, an analyst at MKM Partners. “In the short to medium term, it looks like the market has stabilized, and business and corporate PCs are driving a lot of strength,” said Ing, who has the equivalent of a hold rating on Intel stock. “It’s really a nice positive for them, even without needing the consumer to come back yet.” More»

Intel U.S. chipmaker Intel lost on Thursday its challenge against a record 1.06 billion euro ($1.44 billion) European Union fine handed down five years ago, as Europe's second highest court said regulators did not act too harshly. The European Commission in its 2009 decision said Intel tried to thwart rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) by giving rebates to PC makers Dell, Hewlett-Packard Co, NEC and Lenovo for buying most of their computer chips from Intel. The EU competition authority said Intel also paid German retail chain Media Saturn Holding to stock only computers with its chips. Judges at the Luxembourg-based General Court said on Thursday they backed the Commission's decision. "The Commission demonstrated to the requisite legal standard that Intel attempted to conceal the anti-competitive nature of its practices and implemented a long term comprehensive strategy to foreclose AMD from the strategically most important sales channels," the court said in a near 300-page decision. Judges said the EU watchdog had not been heavy-handed with the level of the fine, equal to 4.15 percent of Intel's 2008 turnover, versus a possible maximum of 10 percent. While Commission penalties rarely hit the top figure, the rising level of fines is a source of worry for many companies. More»
