Apple loses to WARF in patent battle, faces $862M fine

Tech Industry
Apple should know better not to battle with anyone named WARF. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET Update. [MUSIC] Apple is facing a hefty fine Fine, and it could pay as much as $862 million after losing a patent lawsuit over its processors. On Tuesday, a U.S. jury found that the iPhone maker infringed on six patent claims with technology that was invented By the University of Wisconsin Madison. It is also a way to improve the performance and power efficiency of processors, which is used in the iPhone 5s, 6, and 6 Plus. The university sued in 2014, claiming that Apple purposefully took the technology, instead of licensing it. And Apple was arguing that the patents were invalid. Now the jury is deciding how much Apple is going to pay, and the university is asking for 800 and. 62 million dollars. But here's a sign that Apple didn't stand a chance in the battle. The school's licensing arm is the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, known for short as WARF. Sure it's spelled differently than the enterprise's cheap tactical officer, but. It's still a good idea to just not mess with anything named Worf. Meanwhile. Facebook has its own battle waging against YouTube. Facebook is creating a hub, just to watch video clips uploaded to Facebook. They could be videos you saved to watch later, or videos from people or pages you follow. It's just rolling out to a small number of users first. And Facebook is also testing out a feature that lets videos float in a window in the corner. Following you as you keep scrolling down. Facebook has talked about its video ambitions for some time now. The network is even talking about sharing revenue with video Creators just like YouTube does. You may not be able to escape video's but you can escape reminders of your ex on Facebook. The network likes to remind you of past posts you made on this day in previous years, but now there is a filter in setting so you can be sure not to be reminded of any photo's or posts tagged With certain people or posts made on a certain day. Go to facebook.com/onthisday, click on preferences to the right to see settings, because it could be painful to get a surprise reminder about certain things. And over at the other big social network Twitter just appointed a new executive chairman. But he doesn't tweet much, Omid [UNKNOWN] the former chief business officer of Google. Now holds the Twitter chairman role that Jack Dorsey held, but since Dorsey came back as CEO someone else needed to fill the seat. Kordestani launched a Twitter account in 2010 but before getting the job he only tweeted eight times and the News come today after Twitter laid off more than 300 employees. That's it for this check news update, there's always more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC].
