Tim Cook declined to provide a timeline on when we might see a new Mac mini. That’s somewhat problematic, because Intel’s newer mobile chips would significantly improve the platform’s performance, power consumption, video, and gaming capabilities.

SCOTUS Turns Its Back on Google Books Challenge


The United States Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear a petition to review a lower court decision allowing Google to scan and publish excerpts of copyright-protected books without asking for permission from the authors or paying them.

Supreme Court Turns Deaf Ear to Google's Street View Appeal


The Supreme Court has declined Google’s appeal of a lower-court ruling in a class-action lawsuit that alleges it violated federal wiretap laws with its Street View cars. The court left in place a decision the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down in September.
