The decision was reached after just four hours of deliberation.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/jobs-hero_0.jpg?1418758983" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/apple-wins-ipoditunes-antitrust-case" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Music & Videos Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:40:00 +0000 47541 at http://winsupersite.com Apple's iPod Antitrust Case Loses Both Plaintiffs http://winsupersite.com/apples-ipod-antitrust-case-loses-both-plaintiffs <div class="node-body link-body">We're just one week in and Apple's US antitrust case has been as long on drama as it will prove short on remedy. Judge Gonzales Rogers has listened to the testimony of senior Apple executives, and she has watched a video deposition of deceased tech titan Steve Jobs. But the biggest news in the case so far was more unexpected: Both of the case's plaintiffs have been dismissed because neither could prove they owned an iPod during the period of time covered by the case.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/ipod2004-hero.jpg?1418134638" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/apples-ipod-antitrust-case-loses-both-plaintiffs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Music & Videos Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:15:00 +0000 47211 at http://winsupersite.com Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 Updated with Numerous Fixes http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-music-windows-phone-81-updated-numerous-fixes <div class="field-deck"> Music to your ears </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I wouldn’t normally call out an app update that only includes fixes—as opposed to new features—but the latest version of Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 is important enough to warrant some attention.

The case is almost a decade old and dates back to the pre-iPhone era when Apple's industry influence came solely from iPods and iTunes. But the big pull here is that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who passed away in 2011, will play a major role in the trial.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/jobs-hero.jpg?1417529510" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/apple-face-years-old-antitrust-charges-court" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Music & Videos Tue, 02 Dec 2014 14:11:00 +0000 46951 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Offers Incredible Music Promotion http://winsupersite.com/xbox-music/microsoft-offers-incredible-music-promotion <div class="field-deck"> Not just for Xbox Music fans </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Timed for the start of the holiday rush, Microsoft is now offering an incredible collection of free digital music and very low-priced digital box sets.
