Toshiba Rocked With $87 Million Fine In Price Fixing Scandal
Last Updated on Friday, 6 July 2012 05:58 Written by Laddie13 Friday, 6 July 2012 05:58
Tuesday a California jury found Toshiba guilty of conspiring in price-fixing liquid crystal displays. The lawsuit was brought up against Toshiba and other LCD suppliers earlier in the year that alleged the companies were guilty of anti-competitive practices. Most of the other companies settled out of court but Toshiba, in a move I’m sure they are now kicking themselves over, decided to fight the allegations. Now they must pay $70 million to customers who purchased assorted products and an additional $17 million to manufacturers who used Toshiba’s LCD panels. Bruce L. Simon who served as co-lead council for the plaintiffs had this to say. “There was strong evidence that Toshiba participated in the price-fixing conspiracy through the communications with other TFT-LCD manufacturers, and that it received future pricing information from its competitors, shared its own future information, and was aware of its wrongdoing.” Toshiba claimed they had done nothing wrong but the jury wasn’t having it and this goes down as one of the few antitrust class actions to return a successful verdict.

Android Market Soon to be at Google TV’s Doorstep!

Well we all knew that Google had plans to implement the Android Marketplace into it’s Google TV, but could never get a real answer on when that would be. I’m here to tell you that the day has finally come, and being someone who has a Google TV I’m very excited!!!
Google TV’s product manager Ambarish Kenghe announced yesterday that tools were available now in the SDK to create and port applications to the 40 or 46 in. LCD’s. As of now only Linux developers with KVM are able to use this update but they are working on other platforms. Certain applications that require touchscreen or other unsupported tech will not show up while searching marketplace from the TV, so developers are asked to double check before debuting on Google TV. To help developers, Android Devlopers is publishing UI guidlines to help with several aspects of designing your apps to work well across devices. The guidlines will help you determine the different elements of Google TV and how it’s different from other Android devices. Don’t panic if there isn’t that many apps out yet it will take some time for developers to integrate. Leave your comments and let us know what you think after the break.

This monitor is simply crazy, it’s 24.1 inches and has very high specifications compared to other 24-inch monitors. The ASUS PA246Q is a P-IPS LCD, it’s got a six millisecond response time, a swivel and tilt stand, 400 nits of brightness and even a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. On top of all that awesome stuff it also contains two USB sockets and a 7-in-1 card reader. Awesome, right? By the way, it can cover 98% of the Adobe RGB spectrum, I don’t think you will have to worry about not being able to see a particular color. The screen resolution is 1,920 x 1200, capable of 178 degree viewing angles, DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort / and VGA inputs, you can even mount it with a VESA mounting kit. Oh yeah, it’s only $499.99, am I the only one that wants one? Comment after the break. Read more: New ASUS 24.1-Inch Monitor, Seriously Awesome
