"Pokemon Go" has raked in $200 million in net revenue globally on the App Store and Google Play in its first month, beating other top-earning games such as "Candy Crush" and "Clash Royale", according to the latest research. App intelligence firm Sensor Tower crunched the numbers on the first 30 days of the viral game where players have to hit the streeets and catch Pokemon. Sensor Tower found that at the point when the game was launched in Japan on July 22, revenue growth accelerated significantly. As a comparison, "Clash Royale", which was released in early March, earned just under $125 million in its first 30 days. "Clash Royale" was made by Supercell, the company behind "Clash of Clans" which was recently bought by Chinese internet giant Tencent for $8.6 billion. More»

Japan's Fair Trade Commission has raided the office of Amazon Japan on suspicion of pressuring retailers to offer products on more favorable conditions than on rival sites, the Nikkei business daily reported on Monday. The paper did not say when the raid took place. Amazon Japan is suspected of imposing conditions on retailers such as forcing them to sell products at a lower price if they were also advertising on other online shopping sites, the Nikkei said, citing sources with knowledge of the case. A Fair Trade Commission spokesman said he could not confirm the report but added: "I won't say the contents are incorrect." More»

The board of Telecom Egypt , the country's landline monopoly, gave its final approval on Sunday for plans to buy a fourth-generation mobile phone licence, a senior source at the company said. The source told Reuters that Telecom Egypt would pay the full amount requested by the regulator for one of four 4G licences the government is selling as part of a shake-up of the sector. The source did not give the price. The reforms will potentially allow Telecom Egypt, which owns a 45 percent stake in Vodafone Egypt , to enter the mobile phone market directly. They could also allow Egypt's three mobile operators to offer fixed-line services, ending Telecom Egypt's dominance. Egypt's telecom regulator has directly offered 4G licences to the three companies currently offering mobile services - Orange Egypt , Vodafone Egypt, and Etisalat -- as well as to Telecom Egypt. Only Orange Egypt has disclosed the price it has been offered to obtain the licence -- about $400 million. More»

Electronics giant Apple has been granted permission to sell energy generated at its $850m (£645m) solar farm in California. Last year, the tech firm acquired a 2,900-acre power facility in Monterey County, giving it 130 megawatts of solar energy capacity. Now it has the go-ahead to sell that energy into wholesale markets. Apple said renewable energy generated at the site could power 60,000 California homes. One expert says power generated from solar farms is not consistent. More»
