Samsung, Sharp and five other makers of LCD screens agreed to pay a settlement over $553 million for price-fixing LCD panels. The lawsuit alleges that these companies violated antitrust laws by illegally inflating the prices of liquid crystal displays between 1999 and 2006. In other news, Pandora is branching out from the streaming music business and has begun bringing live concert content to the web. The showcase called Pandora Presents lets users watch behind-the-scene footage and listen to a curated station of music made by the band. And finally, Intel’s Thunderbolt technology transfers data at blistering speeds, but is currently only supported by Apple products. Intel announced that in April of next year, the technology would be available on a much larger scale. This is great news if you regularly transfer video or backup your hard drives.
