Apple Execs' Salaries Go Up as Stock Goes Down


All but one of Apple’s top team received a pay raise in 2015, according to a proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission this week. While Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president for retail and online stores, didn’t get a raise, she’s still pulling down the highest executive compensation at the company at $25.8 million. Her compensation in 2014 was $73.4 million, but that’s because Apple offered her a fat financial deal to jump ship from Burberry.

Google's Rebuttal Against EU May Be in Vain


Google last week responded to the European Commission’s statement of objections regarding its search practices by rejecting outright the Europeans’ argument that its innovations were anticompetitive. The SO, published in April, doesn’t support the claim that the company’s displays of paid ads diverted traffic away from shopping services, Google said. Nor does it counter major advantages to consumers and advertisers. Further, the SO doesn’t provide a clear legal theory linking its claims with its proposed solution.

EC Greases Its Google Antitrust Gears


The European Commission reportedly is preparing to file a Statement of Objections detailing specific antitrust charges against Google. The EC is collecting testimony from companies that have filed private complaints about Google’s business practices to gather more firepower in moving forward in antitrust matters, reports indicate. The EC is rumored to be considering a penalty of $6 billion, equivalent to about 10 percent of Google’s annual revenue. Of course, aside from the financial loss, Google also could suffer from the disruption and distraction of prolonged legal activities.
