    I wonder if this will gain momentum?

    Silicon Valley giants spared employees’ class-action lawsuit – for now
    JONATHAN STEMPEL
    Reuters
    Published Friday, Apr. 05 2013, 3:17 PM EDT
    Last updated Friday, Apr. 05 2013, 3:23 PM EDT

    A U.S. judge ruled that a lawsuit alleging a broad conspiracy among Silicon Valley companies not to poach each other’s employees cannot proceed as a class action for now, but left the door open for workers to eventually sue as a group.

    In a decision released on Friday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California said the five software engineers suing Apple Inc., Google Inc. and five other companies have yet to show enough in common among the proposed class members to allow them to sue together.

    But in deciding to give the plaintiffs another chance, the federal judge said she was “keenly aware” new evidence had recently become available that could support class certification.

    She also said the nature of the “alleged overarching conspiracy” and desire to litigate it all at once weighed “heavily” in favour of certifying a class, which the plaintiffs’ lawyers have said could include tens of thousands of people.

    The case has been closely watched in Silicon Valley, and much of it has been built on e-mails among top executives, including the late Apple chief executive Steve Jobs and former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt.

    If the plaintiffs win class certification, then they would have more leverage to extract large financial settlements than if they were to sue individually.

    Other defendants in the case include Adobe Systems Inc., Intel Corp., Intuit Inc., and Walt Disney Co.’s Lucasfilm Ltd. and Pixar units.

    The defendants were accused of violating the Sherman Act and Clayton Act antitrust laws by conspiring to eliminate competition for labour, depriving workers of job mobility and hundreds of millions of dollars of compensation.

    These allegations are similar to those raised in a U.S. Department of Justice probe that ended in a 2010 settlement, which forbade several of the defendants from entering an anti-poaching conspiracy, such as through the use of “Do Not Cold Call” lists.

    Judge Koh said she wants more evidence that a proposed class does not include large numbers of people who suffered no harm.

    She also expressed concern over whether evidence would show that the defendants had “such rigid compensation structures” that would have affected nearly everyone in a class.

    But in a signal that certification could be forthcoming, Judge Koh appointed Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein and the Joseph Saveri Law Firm as co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs.

    “The court has invited us to provide further answers to certain specific questions, which we are prepared to do,” Mr. Saveri said in an e-mail. “We are in the process of determining a schedule for doing that as quickly as possible.”

    Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette declined to comment. Google spokesman Matt Kallman would not discuss the decision, but said “we have always actively and aggressively recruited top talent.”

    Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy said the chip maker opposes certification, and believes the evidence will show its employees “were fairly compensated in a highly competitive market.”

    Adobe spokeswoman Christie Hui declined to comment. The other companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Among the revelations in the litigation was a 2007 e-mail trail involving Mr. Jobs and Mr. Schmidt, then an Apple director, over Google’s apparent effort to recruit an Apple engineer.

    After Mr. Jobs e-mailed Mr. Schmidt that he “would be very pleased if your recruiting department would stop doing this,” Mr. Schmidt forwarded the e-mail to others he urged to “get this stopped.”

    Judge Koh also cited a January 2007 e-mail from Ed Catmull, then Pixar’s president and now president of Walt Disney Co. and Pixar Animation Studios, to the head of Disney Studios that suggested a desire to avoid bidding up the price of talent.

    “We have avoided wars up in Northern California because all of the companies up here – Pixar, Dreamworks, and couple of smaller places – have conscientiously avoided raiding each other,” he wrote.

    All of the defendants are based in California: Adobe in San Jose; Apple in Cupertino; Google and Intuit in Mountain View; Intel in Santa Clara; Lucasfilm in San Francisco; and Pixar in Emeryville. Walt Disney is based in Burbank.

    Wow. There's just no winning with these guys. The terms "We believe", and "In our view" mean absolutely nothing outside of serving their own cause.

    On a side note, I thought Zavitz was gone from Forbes.

    I guess I should have looked at the date. Lol.

    Based on what QE did to equities in the US, Japanese equities look very attractive right now.

    If BBRY starts tracking sideways for much longer I think I may reduce my position a little until things pick up.

    Here's a simple chart for you:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-rim-april-07-2013-chart.jpg

    Looks like we are really just moving sideways until we get some news on Q10. These delays certainly hurt the rally, but it might end this week with our first major move here. . If we are basing in here, the rally could be a large one coming out of that consolidation. Limited downside anyway you look at it.

    Be sure to catch CNBC's reason for why BlackBerry beat out 14 great American companies and that big one Apple?? .... or something let that, should be an interesting spin on that win!

    Wired did a good article on the currency last year. I see no value outside of money laundering.
    If you look at a chart of the Bitcoins value over the last five years, you can really tell when the dumb money came in.

    I think you should actually go exchange it, like others have said it could be hardware issue. Just sounds very unusual that your experiencing problems daily, had my z10 since release and i have only pulled the battery once. :S hope you get it fixed!
    I am. Today I went to grab it and it was hot. Hotter than one of those hand warmer packets. That bites, but I like the phone, hopefully just got a lemon it happens.

    Someone posted in a BBM group that they did a wipe and OS reinstall and things were better. I don't remember if you said if you did that or not so I thought I would pass it along.

    The US dollar has the backing of the US government. That's it's strength. That's why it is a world currency.

    What is so great about bitcoin? What backs them?

    I'm certainly no fan of the bitcoin but I would also say that the US dollar is losing its luster as many countries are starting to negotiate trade agreements in their own currencies instead of the US dollar. That is a very disturbing trend. The US economy is up to its eyebrows in debt and its government credibility is waning.

    Industrialized countries have spent well beyond their means over the past six decades and are now about to hurt terribly economically as they have very little wiggle room left to respond to economic downturns.

    Well Bollinger bands getting tighter. I said last week we might rally Friday afternoon or tomorrow. Now im thinking the bands are not tight enough on the 3 months yet. Maybe need a few more low movement days then we will hit a good rally or drop down. My thinking is a rally will happen very soon. Maybe up to 16.25 in the near term. If the markets stay out of trouble we should be moving up quite abit this week

    With BB10 and a lot of mention of QNX in the media lately I willing to bet that we will hear a lot more about other QNX products and developments as well.

    Hopefully BlackBerry can use the phone's re realized popularity to promote its other products as well.
