Business News: Home Data

(CNN)-  It's a big trend right now, smart home systems allowing owners to remotely control lights and locks, or view security cameras and more.  But what if the police could peer into your home with this technology?  Verizon, AT&T and Time Warner Cable already offer various smarthome packages.  Apple just unveiled something called " HomeKit" which allows people to manage their homes through their iPad or iPhone.  Once home security footage is stored on a server outside your home, police could seek to view that as well.  If you are buying this technology, read over your terms of service carefully so that you know what data the company will share with or without a legal order.

(CNN)-  Apple has reached a settlement in a class action lawsuit.  The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.  The case was scheduled to go to trial in July.  Consumers in more than 30 states sued the tech giant for teaming up with publishers and raising the price of iPad e-books.  In 2012, the feds brought antitrust charges against Apple and several publishers on the same issue.  Apple lost that case but plans to appeal the decision, going all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary.
