Over 5 million Raspberry Pis have been sold

How big of a phenomenon is the Raspberry Pi? The charity organization behind the tiny, low-cost computer announced this morning that over 5 million Pis have now been sold. The original Pi went on sale about three years ago next week, so 5 million is a pretty huge milestone to hit in that short period of time. The organization boasts that this figure appears to make it “the biggest selling UK computer manufacturer ever,” though you wouldn’t be wrong to take issue with its comparison: Pi is selling $ 20 to $ 35 computers — not machines that you’re going to use for serious productivity for a few years.

Still, that’s not a knock on any of the Pis. They’re surprisingly capable machines at just $ 35, especially following the introduction of a…

SpaceX settles dispute with US Air Force over national security space launches

SpaceX has announced it has settled its dispute with the United States Air Force and will dismiss standing claims in a US federal claims court. Last year, Elon Musk and Co. accused the Air Force of stifling competition in the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program by allowing United Launch Alliance — a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing — to keep a monopolistic grip on launches. SpaceX has been frustrated with the lengthy certification process as it moves toward eventually competing with ULA. Under the newly reached agreement, the Air Force will “work collaboratively with SpaceX to complete the certification process in an efficient and expedient manner” so the company probably won’t be waiting much longer to fight…

FTC finalizes privacy settlement with Snapchat over ‘deceived’ users

Few expected any obstacles, but the Federal Trade Commission has approved a final order settling its charges against Snapchat that will see the popular ephemeral messaging startup held to stricter privacy policies over the next 20 years. The original complaint, revealed in May, accused Snapchat of deceiving its millions of users “with promises about the disappearing nature of messages sent through the service.”

The FTC was displeased after it was discovered that sent snaps and content included in them could be recovered in certain circumstances or with third-party tools. That ran counter to Snapchat’s underlying, fleeting concept: most consumers think everything they send off to friends will vanish once the preset counter runs down. The…

Apple ends its arguments in the DRM trial, but it’s far from over

All the evidence for the $ 350 million court case against Apple is now in, but what we still don’t have is someone to represent the some 8 million who purchased iPods during the class action period. That’s an important detail that’s still being hashed out ahead of next week, when the trial comes to a close and a jury of eight begins its deliberations. Despite the lack of a plaintiff, Apple presented evidence defending itself from the claims that it harmed consumers when creating the DRM system for iTunes and the iPod.
