Can Silicon Valley disrupt journalism if journalists hate being disrupted? | Emily Bell | Comment is free | The Guardian
The media world has changed so much that the New Republic, the Washington Post and the New York Times can never be what they once were, no matter who holds the purse strings and no matter who is in charge of editorial. But we do still need institutions that take seriously the mission of informing and debating, of reporting events and exchanging ideas – and we need them to be integrated into the way that people consume and participate in news. To get there, the marriages between owners and editors – between technologists and journalists – need to learn to operate on mutual respect. Putting technology to use for journalism needs not two distinct cultures but a new and unified one.

Microsoft sells its stake in Nook back to Barnes & Noble | The Verge
Microsoft and Barnes & Noble unveiled a "strategic partnership" back in April 2012 which involved the software maker investing $300 million for a stake in a separate digital Nook business. Two years later, Barnes & Noble is now buying back Microsoft’s 17.6 percent stake for $62 million and around 2.7 million Barnes & Noble shares, a clear loss on Microsoft’s original investment. Barnes & Noble revealed the purchased in a document filed with the SEC today, and it’s not immediately clear why Microsoft is selling its stake. A company spokesperson says "as the respective business strategies of each company evolved, we mutually agreed that it made sense to terminate the agreement."

Apple Deleted Rivals’ Songs from Users’ iPods - Digits - WSJ
When a user who had downloaded music from a rival service tried to sync an iPod to the user’s iTunes library, Apple would display an error message and instruct the user to restore the factory settings, Coughlin said. When the user restored the settings, the music from rival services would disappear, he said.

Apple directed the system “not to tell users the problem,” Coughlin said.

To plaintiffs in the case, the move showed how Apple had stifled competition for music players and downloads. They are seeking $350 million in damages in the decade-old suit, claiming Apple’s actions forced them to pay more for iPods. The damages could be tripled under antitrust laws.
