African survey on counterfeit electrical products is a call to action

The first survey on counterfeit electrical products ever done in Africa has been conducted by Schneider Electric to determine the extent of the problem and highlight actions to mitigate its spread across the continent.

?We knew that counterfeiting in Africa had a huge impact on the market both in terms of safety and on the economy,? said Schneider Electric Anti-Counterfeiting Global Manager Tracy Garner, via email. ?But how much are we talking about exactly, what are we dealing with precisely? There was no clear information. And it is difficult for any stakeholders in the electrical market, including Schneider Electric, to set up concrete actions when you don?t know what you are fighting against or how much you could gain from it.?

Thousands call on Congress to overturn net neutrality rules

Opponents of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission?s new net neutrality rules aren?t giving up, with a conservative advocacy group saying it has collected more than 540,000 signatures on a petition asking Congress to overturn the agency?s action.

American Commitment, a group with connections to Republican billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, delivered those petitions to Congress this week. Each petition went to the three members of Congress, one representative and two senators, representing the person signing the letter, American Commitment said.

?The landslide 2014 elections made crystal clear that the American people reject larger, more intrusive government,? the Web form leading to the letters says in part. ?But President [Barack] Obama reacted by moving even further left, ignoring the fact the Federal Communications Commission is supposed to be an independent agency, and openly demanding the FCC take the most radical action imaginable: reducing the Internet to a ?public utility,? imposing sweeping new taxes and destroying private investment, competition, and innovation while putting bureaucrats firmly in control.?

Survey: A majority of Apple Pay users encounter problems

Apple Pay is coming up short for many people who attempt to use the mobile payment service at the register.

A survey from research firm Phoenix Marketing International found that 68 percent of respondents who have used Apple Pay had encountered an issue when making an in-store purchase.

The leading compliant made by nearly half of respondents was that retailers? sales terminals took too long to record a transaction. Other problems: employees who didn?t know how to process sales with the mobile wallet (42 percent); errors in how the sale posted (36 percent), like a transaction appearing twice; and out of service Apple Pay terminals (27 percent). Almost half of the Apple Pay users surveyed (47 percent) found that the particular store they visited didn?t accept Apple Pay although the retailer was supposed to support the service.

HP hits former Autonomy execs with $5B suit

The UK?s Serious Fraud Office may have dropped its investigation of software firm Autonomy earlier this year, but that doesn?t appear to have done much to allay HP?s ire. HP?which acquired Autonomy in 2011?has confirmed that it plans to sue Mike Lynch and Sushovan Hussain, Autonomy?s former CEO and CFO, for $5.1 billion.

HP filed a Claim Form against Lynch and Hussain on Monday alleging they engaged in fraudulent activities while executives at Autonomy, an HP spokeswoman said via email. ?The lawsuit seeks damages from them of approximately $5.1 billion.?

Seven things to know about Intel's 'Cherry Trail' Atom chips

Microsoft?s Surface 3 is the first announced device to use Intel?s new Cherry Trail Atom chips, but you can expect therm to show up soon in other devices too. So what are the chips capable of and what should we expect?

The Surface 3, which went on sale Tuesday, highlights some of the capabilities of Cherry Trail, officially called the Atom X5 and X7. The chips can run full Windows 8 and Windows 10 and are better at graphics than their ?Bay Trail? predecessors. But they also have limitations. They won?t do so well at compute intensive tasks such as video editing, which remain the domain of Intel?s faster Core processors.
