Nokia’s new filings accuse Apple of breaching Nokia’s patents related to several technologies, including the touch user interface, on-device app stores, signal noise suppression and modular structure.Apple, which was not available for comment yesterday, has countersued Nokia over patents in the US and the UK. It also remains engaged in patent rows with Motorola, HTC and other mobile phone vendors using Google’s Android operating system.Apple’s iPhone and devices running on Android have carved out a large chunk of the lucrative and quickly expanding smartphone market, largely at the expense of Nokia, which has stuck mainly to its older Symbian software.Nokia’s shares have fallen 15 per cent this year as its share of the smartphone market sank.It has also struggled with the rollouts of its latest answers to the iPhone – the N8 and the E7 models.Meanwhile, Apple yesterday announced its laptop version of its lauded App Store will open for business on 6 January. This could be good news for Apple investors, with the app market forecast to be worth an astonishing $35bn (£22.2bn) a year by 2014. Apple keeps 30 per cent of the price of each app downloaded. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Abducted journalist found shot dead, second murder in past month

first_img Receive email alerts August 26, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Abducted journalist found shot dead, second murder in past month MexicoAmericas MexicoAmericas RSF_en May 13, 2021 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Help by sharing this information Reports Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Newscenter_img Follow the news on Mexico NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more to go further Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the murder of Humberto Millán Salazar, a journalist based in Culiacán, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, who edited the online newspaper A-Discussion and presented a programme on Radio Formula. His body was found yesterday, a day after his abduction in Culiacán. He had been shot in the head.Gunmen kidnapped Millán on 24 August together with his handicapped brother, who was released at Millán’s request. His body was discovered yesterday morning in Campo Morelia, 10 km north of the city. The Sinaloa prosecutor’s office said measures have been taken to protect his relatives and some of his colleagues.The murder is being investigated by a team set up by Sinaloa state prosecutor Marco Antonio Higuera Gómez in coordination with the federal prosecutor-general’s office. The state prosecutor’s office confirmed that an investigation was under way but declined to say what hypotheses it was working on.Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities not to rule out the possibility that Millán was killed in connection with his work. He was frequent critic of the local authorities and, on the eve of his abduction, had published an article about the municipal government’s management of its accounts in A-Discusión.He was the second journalist to be murdered in Mexico in the past month.____________________________25.08.2011 – Gunmen abduct veteran journalist in Sinaloa stateReporters Without Borders urges the federal authorities to do everything in their power to find Humberto Millán Salazar, editor of the online newspaper A-Discussion and presenter of the programme “Sin Ambages” (Plain Language) on Radio Formula, who was kidnapped by gunmen yesterday in Culiacán, the capital of the northwestern state of Sinaloa.Millán’s abduction, which brings to 14 the number of journalists who have gone missing since 2003, came just a month after the kidnapping of Yolanda Ordaz de la Cruz, a reporter for Notiver, a regional daily in the eastern state of Veracruz, who was found 48 hours later with her throat cut.“Mexico is still one of the hemisphere’s most dangerous countries for journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A total of 19 have been killed in a continuing wave of terror since the start of 2010. In eight of these cases, the motive was clearly linked to the victim’s work. It is high time the authorities implemented the ‘protection mechanisms’ for journalists that were ratified under the federal interior ministry’s aegis in November 2010.“We point out that the Sinaloa Cartel, one the Mexico’s leading drug-trafficking organizations, has been on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom for several years.”According to a Sinaloa police communiqué, Millán had just left his office in Fraccionamiento Canaco, a district in the northern part of the city, when his car was intercepted by gunmen in two vehicles. José Alfredo Beltrán, the head of the “7 de Junio” journalists’ association, to which Millán belongs, told Reporters Without Borders that Millán’s handicapped brother, who was kidnapped with him, was released at Millán’s request.Aged 53, Millán has been a journalist for the past 30 years. The media he has worked for include Radio UAS (a station operated by the Autonomous University of Sinaloa) and the newspapers El Debate and El Sol de Sinaloa. He covers regional politics and is critical of the local government.The Sinaloa state prosecutor’s office has launched an investigation into the abduction and has requested assistance from the special prosecutor’s office for attacks on the news media. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to work on the assumption that Millán’s kidnapping is linked to his work as a journalist, and to provide his family with immediate protection, especially his brother, who was a witness of the abduction.The toll from the federal offensive against drug trafficking that President Felipe Calderón launched in December 2006, using 50,000 troops, is more than 50,000 dead nationwide, and more than 15,000 in 2010 alone. This undeclared war is being accompanied by a parallel bloody war among the cartels for control of the trafficking. The result has been a tragic deterioration in the working environment for journalists, especially in the north of the country.Reporters Without Borders continues to relay the “No more blood – No más sangre” campaign by leading Mexican cartoonists.

RSF urges Japan to renew war correspondent’s passport

first_img News May 16, 2019 RSF urges Japan to renew war correspondent’s passport Receive email alerts JapanAsia – Pacific Protecting journalists Armed conflictsHostages to go further News JapanAsia – Pacific Protecting journalists Armed conflictsHostages On April 24, Japanese war correspondent Kosuke Tsuneoka, 49, took legal action against the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to have his passport reinstated. In February, Tsuneoka arrived at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport prior to a flight to Yemen to find that his passport had been revoked under a regulation designed to prevent journalists from traveling to conflict zones. Tsuneoka has covered the Middle East and Africa for 20 years and was held hostage in Afghanistan for five months in 2010.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Japanese authorities to immediately renew Tsuneoka’s passport and to abolish the legal dispositions that allow such an abusive practice. “To have a passport and to travel freely is a fundamental right in a democracy,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau, who called on Japanese authorities to “show gratitude to journalists who risk their lives to inform the public, instead of punishing them.”In 2015, the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs suspended freelance photographer Yuichi Sugimoto’s passport when he tried to travel to Syria to cover freelance journalist Kenji Goto’s murder by Islamic State. He similarly filed a lawsuit, which was dismissed in 2017.In recent years, a fraction of the Japanese population have accused war correspondents of being irresponsible by traveling to regions where they risk being kidnapped, which they see as a source of embarrassment for the country. Journalist Jumpei Yasuda, who was held hostage in Syria for three years, was made to apologise upon his release last October.Japan is ranked 67th out of 180 in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Four journalists killed since start of 2014

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s murder of TV and radio presenter Geolino Lopes Xavier in Teixeira de Freitas, in the northeastern state of Bahía. The co-manager of N3, a TV station on which he anchored the news programme A Tarde, Lopes was the fourth Brazilian journalist to be killed since the start of the year and the third to be the victim of a targeted shooting in the space of two weeks.Lopes was driving a car owned by the TV station and had just dropped off a colleague, Djalma Ferreira, at her home when he was fatally shot by two men in another car. The police investigating his murder have not yet identified any motive or suspects.“We offer our heartfelt condolences and support to Lopes’ family,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We deplore the dangers to which Brazilian journalists are exposed and we urge the authorities to actively examine the possibility that Lopes’ murder was linked to his work. We also hope concrete measures will be taken to protect journalists, not only those covering protests but also all other journalists in all circumstances.”Following TV cameraman Santiago Ilídio Andrade’s death on 11 February from injuries received while covering a demonstration in Rio five days earlier, the authorities have recognized the urgency of the need for measures to protect journalists while covering protests.The creation of an Observatory for the Protection of Journalists, suggested by human rights minister Maria da Rosário, is currently being considered. A similar proposal in 2013, for the creation of a working group on the dangers to which journalists are exposed, was unfortunately dropped after a few months.Brazil was Latin America’s deadliest country for media personnel in 2013, with a total of five journalists killed. All these murders have gone unpunished. The two other journalists gunned down in the past two weeks were Pedro Palma in a Rio de Janeiro suburb on 13 February and José Lacerda da Silva in northeastern state of Rio Grande do Norte on 16 February.

A report by Trulia reveals that big cities and warm destinations top the list of this group of homebuyers. While fewer foreign nationals were searching for homes in the U.S. compared to a year ago, Trulia said that there was a growing interest in finding homes here for citizens of some countries.The report found that searches originating from foreign countries for all active for-sale and for-rent properties on Trulia from July to September fell slightly to 1.8 percent of all searches from 2 percent during the same period in 2017.While citizens of Canada and the United Kingdom, still made up the bulk of these buyers searching for homes in the U.S., the report saw a surge from countries like Brazil and Mexico where searches were up 1.5 percentage points and 0.5 percentage points respectively. It also saw increased interest from South Korea, Japan, and China.While looking for homes in the U.S., the report indicated, these homebuyers preferred big metros like New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago or beach destinations such as Florida. In fact, Florida took five of the 15 most-searched metros. They included Miami, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and West Beach.Of all the homebuyers searching for these destinations, Trulia said that searches from Canada accounted for 21.9 percent, 19.5 percent, and 25.1 percent for Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and West Palm Beach.For searches from Mexico, the report found that 60.1 percent of searches in El Paso, Texas originated from across the border. San Diego and Houston received the highest share of searches from Mexico, the report revealed. Similarly, 45.2 percent of searches in Buffalo, New York came from Canada.The report also found that the greatest interest of South Korean homebuyers was for residences in Atlanta, given that the metro was home to a “thriving Korean population, with its own Koreatown and South Korea-headquartered Kia’s U.S. manufacturing base nearby.”To read the complete report, click here.
