Yahoo said in a statement that it understood the IRS statement was not specific to Yahoo's planned spin-off of its remaining stake in Alibaba Group and its Small Business unit. More»

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) was handed a mixed ruling by a U.S. appeals court in the latest twist in a blockbuster intellectual property battle with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS), as a prior patent infringement verdict was upheld but a trademark finding that the iPhone's appearance could be protected was thrown out. That means up to 40 percent of a $930 million verdict which had been won by Apple must be reconsidered. In the highly anticipated ruling stemming from the global smartphone wars, the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. upheld patent infringement violations including one which protects the shape and color of its iPhone as well as the damages awarded for those violations.

Penn State University, which develops sensitive technology for the U.S. Navy, disclosed Friday that Chinese hackers have been sifting through the computers of its engineering school for more than two years. One of the country’s largest and most productive research universities, Penn State offers a potential treasure trove of technology that’s already being developed with partners for commercial applications. The breach suggests that foreign spies could be using universities as a backdoor to U.S. commercial and defense secrets. The hackers are so deeply embedded that the engineering college’s computer network will be taken offline for several days while investigators work to eject the intruders. More»

Telecom Egypt CEO Mohamed al-Nawawy said the company has no alternative but to obtain mobile carrier licence in order to compete in the market. During a press conference held by the company on Wednesday, Nawawy said that the Egyptian mobile market comprises 25 percent of the total regional market with half a million subscribers annually, making it a prize for any foreign mobile company. Telecom Egypt, according to Nawawy, earlier offered a mobile service between 1996-1998 but it cannot compete without license, being a governmental telecommunications company, especially since the sector’s revenues exceed 36 billion Egyptian pounds annually. Telecommunications Minister Khaled Negm recently received a delegation from the company and said that not obtaining the licence endangers the company, according to Nawawy. More»

Facebook (FB.O) raised wages for its contract workers, such as cafeteria staff and janitors, to a minimum of $15 per hour amid rising tension over the wage gap between the technology sector's elite and the lower-paid workers. Contractors will also receive a minimum of 15 days of paid vacation days and a $4,000 new child benefit for parents who do not receive parental leave, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said in a Wednesday post on Facebook. "Taking these steps is the right thing to do for our business and our community," Sandberg wrote. Facebook implemented the wage increase for some workers at its Menlo Park headquarters as of May 1. It will work to expand the policy within the year to its substantial vendors, who have more than 25 employees and are based in the United States, she said. More»
