An anonymous reader writes: From Zerohedge: According to another just released report by the Guardian citing Snowden files, "Microsoft has collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users' communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company's own encryption, according to top-secret documents obtained by the Guardian."

Submission + - The Steve Jobs video that sealed Apple's fate in the DOJ case (

An anonymous reader writes: Apple yesterday came up on the losing end of a decision from US District Judge Denise Cote who ruled that Apple did, in fact, collude to artificially raise the price of e-books.

In looking over the decision, I found it interesting that statements made by Steve Jobs were construed as compelling evidence in the eyes of Cote.

The damning video, which was shot by Kara Swisher on her Flipcam, shows Mossberg curiously asking Jobs why someone would buy an e-book for $14.99 from Apple when they can get it for $9.99 from Amazon.

"The prices will be the same," Jobs explained, before adding that "publishers are actually withholding" books from Amazon because they aren't happy with the terms of their contract.
