Valve ordered to hand over sales data for Epic vs Apple case

first_imgValve ordered to hand over sales data for Epic vs Apple caseBut judge limits request to four years, rather than the six years Apple originally asked forJames BatchelorEditor-in-ChiefFriday 26th February 2021Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleAppleEpic GamesValveA court has ruled that Valve must provide sales and pricing data to Apple as part of the iPhone maker’s ongoing legal battle with Epic Games.Law360 reports that California magistrate judge Thomas S. Hixson ordered the Steam firm must produce historial sales, pricing and other data for 436 games sold through its marketplace.Apple filed a subpoena requesting this information back in November, arguing that it will be highly relevant to its case, countering Epic’s allegations that its App Store engages in monopolistic practices.Valve originally refused, deeming the task to be too much of a burden given that it is not a party in the case, adding that Apple had not shown “substantial need” for the information.However, the court has ruled otherwise, offering the consolation: “Apple has salted the earth with subpoenas, so don’t worry, it’s not just you.”Hixson has made one amendment: Apple originally requested sales data on each of the games reaching back to 2015, but the judge has limited this to 2017.Apple is facing an antitrust lawsuit from Epic Games that began in August, when the tech giant removed Epic’s flagship game Fortnite from the App Store after direct payments were introduced — circumventing the 30% commission on all transactions Apple mandates from developers who use its marketplace.Related Jobs3D Artist – Mobile Studio – Midlands UK & Europe Big PlanetProducer Indie Game Studio France UK & Europe Big PlanetSenior C++ Unreal Programmer – PC and Console Studio – Austria South East Big PlanetDiscover more jobs in games Epic filed a similar lawsuit against Google.Earlier this week, the Fortnite firm’s case against Apple was blocked from courts in the UK, with the Competition Appeal Tribunal ruling that it should be settled in the US.The US trial is set to take place in May.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Mobile newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

JinkoSolar 2014 net profit soars, Q4 earnings up 50%

first_imgJinkoSolar 2014 net profit soars, Q4 earnings up 50%Falling oil prices won’t affect PV growth, says CEO Kangping Chen, who points out that “mounting concern over the environment has been one of the driving factors behind increased solar demand in many key markets, China in particular.” March 2, 2015 Edgar Meza Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share JinkoSolar’s net profit more than tripled last year to CNY 673 million ($108.5 million) as revenues climbed 41% to CNY 9.98 billion ($1.61 billion). The stratospheric results reflected the Chinese company’s record-high solar module shipments, which reached nearly 3 GW last year, including 520.4 MW used in the group’s own downstream projects. JinkoSolar’s total solar product shipments to third parties also broke previous records with a year-on-year increase of 44.2%, reaching 2,787.1 MW (consisting of 2,423.2 MW of solar modules, 229.6 MW of silicon wafers and 134.3 MW of solar cells). According to JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen, revenue streams expanded as costs continued to improve, allowing the company to achieve more than $100 million in net income for the year. “Our rapidly growing downstream business, expanding geographic presence and industry-leading products will continue to support our growth as we work towards our goal of transforming into a one-stop energy solutions provider,” Chen added. Fourth-quarter results Looking at JinkoSolar’s fourth-quarter performance, the company reported a near 50% year-on-year increase in net profit to CNY 244.7 million ($39.4 million) on revenue of CNY 2.97 billion ($478.9 million), which rose 35.8% from the fourth quarter of 2013. “We closed out the year on a very strong note,” Chen said, adding that module shipments reached a record high of 1,078.3 MW which, including 339.1 MW designated for the company’s own downstream business. “Our downstream business continued to gain momentum with electricity revenues from solar power projects reaching CNY 80.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 68.6% sequentially,” Chen added. “270 MW of projects were completed during the quarter of which 150 MW were connected to the grid. This brings the total capacity of connected JinkoSolar power projects to 503 MW.” The chief exec said a the number of megawatts connected to the grid was lower than initially anticipated due to “a cold winter and a slower grid connection process at the end of the year,” but added that the group now expect to make up for it by connecting approximately 360 MW of projects in the first half of 2015. JinkoSolar will continue to diversify its market presence this year in view of an anticipated 15% to 20% growth in global solar demand – and that despite falling oil prices. “The price of oil, we believe, has a limited impact on solar fundamentals as it is primarily used for transportation rather than power generation in most of the key solar markets,” Chen pointed out. “And it is important to remember that mounting concern over the environment has been one of the driving factors behind increased solar demand in many key markets, China in particular.” Outlook JinkoSolar estimates module shipments of between 710 MW and 780 MW in the first three months of the year, including 550 MW to 600 MW of shipments to third parties and 160 MW to 180 MW for its own downstream projects. For the full year, the company expects module shipments of between 3.3 GW and 3.8 GW, including 2.7 GW to 3 GW to third parties. It is also anticipating newly added PV power project development to reach between 600 MW and 800 MW.Popular content Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

PG&E Expands Deal for Energy Storage

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Over the last 12 months PG&E staff reviewed applications from numerous vendors interested in participating in the storage market. In seeking offers for storage projects, PG&E looked for projects which met at least one of three goals – grid optimization, renewable energy integration and greenhouse gas reduction. Twitter Storage plays an increasingly important role for California energy companies as they work to achieve the state’s ambitious clean energy goals. By the end of 2017, PG&E forecasts that about 33 percent of its retail electric deliveries will come from renewable sources. Energy storage will help integrate many of those resources, such as wind and solar, which are intermittent or provide peak output during times of low demand. Voith Hydro supplying pumped storage equipment to pair with Idaho combined solar-wind project 12.6.2017 In addition to third-party owned storage offers, PG&E identified a distribution substation where it would like to consider energy storage projects on distribution circuits to defer distribution investments. PG&E also identified three sites where it owns and operates solar photovoltaic facilities where energy storage could be added. Facebook Pacific Gas and Electric Co. invested more in energy storage with six contracts totaling 165 MW to the California Public Utilities Commission for review and approval on December 1. No posts to display On December 1, 2016, PG&E issued a request for offers (RFO) to solicit proposals for energy storage projects. The projects were required to be between 1 MW and 50 MW, and needed to be operational no later than the end of 2024. TAGSPGE By chloecox – center_img Energy storage has been a part of PG&E’s power mix for decades, starting with the Helm’s Hydro-electric Facility and continuing with pilot projects such as the 2 MW Battery Storage Pilot at the Vacaville Substation and the 4 MW Yerba Buena Battery Energy Storage System located on the property of Silicon Valley storage technology company HGST. “As our clean energy portfolio grows, so does the importance of storage technology. These contracts and the storage capacity they represent will help us better integrate our growing renewable generation sources, and bring increased reliability to the grid. They are an important milestone in our progress toward a clean energy future,” Wyspianski said.

Joao Eduardo Ferreira De Carvalho of Delray Beach, FL rode Volt Du Thot, owned by Karina Rocha Mello, to a second-place victory after a 44.98-second jump-off. Sophia Studd of Wellington, FL claimed third place aboard Holsteins Matina, owned by Marie Botved Studd, after they finished the jump-off track in 47.232 seconds.Farrington had a total of three entries in this Grand Prix, and has been working to keep them in shape despite the slower competition season this Summer. “Creedance and Gazelle are very experienced horses, and it’s a great opportunity to jump them on the grass. I think it’s one of the best arenas that we have in America, so the fact that they’re able to hold some shows here during this difficult time is great,” commented Farrington. “I wanted to take advantage of [this field] with my horses and still keep them in a bit of a routine even though there’s not a ton of shows going on right now.” The KPF Team recently returned from competition in North Carolina and Michigan, and the top rider expressed that he’s very happy some venues have been able to hold competitions, considering “a lot of other sports aren’t able to continue now.”Many of his social media followers have also seen the incredible workouts that Farrington completes, so in honor of this week’s Grand Prix sponsor, Resilient Fitness, Farrington described how he manages to stay motivated and healthy during this time: “I take my job seriously. I think if we’re going to call ourselves athletes, then we have to be athletes. So, I try to be authentic to that and live and train like a top athlete should.”Jumper HighlightsThe $2,500 Equiline Medium Junior/Amateur Owner Jumper Classic was championed by Sheer Levitin of Delray Beach, FL and her entry Love Scendix after they completed the second round in 36.589 seconds. Taking home the red ribbon was Luiza Leivas Da Costa of Boca Raton, FL after racing through the timers in 36.824 seconds aboard Luziada Jmen, owned by Bonne Chance Farm LLC.

Ansgar Holtgers Jr. of Wellington, FL stopped the clock at 40.65 seconds to claim the third-place ribbon with four faults aboard Alfonsine Manciaise, owned by Gut Einhaus, LLC.Over in the Van Kampen Covered Arena, the $250 CCTV Agent .85m Classic took place with Kate Marra of Delray Beach, FL topping the leaderboard with Kristin Schuttenmeyer’s On The Rocks after a 32.677-second round. Julia Lane of Wellington, FL was close behind with a time of 34.171 seconds aboard her mount Davinchie. Charlie Berch of Boca Raton, FL and Silver White Winters, owned by Jayden Rivas, took home third with a 34.896-second jump-off.The $1,500 Low Child/Adult Amateur Jumper Classic presented by French Horse Exports named Manuela Gomez of Wellington, FL and Coignard Katalei, owned by Jorge Gomez, champion after they stopped the timers at 44.904 seconds.

Kellner, who also received fifth place aboard Suzanne Cayatte’s Caligua and sixth place aboard Maggie Alexander’s Geronimo L, explained that she did have separate plans for each horse going in depending on their experience: “Even though Inspiration is a bit younger he’s very brave, so I did all the high options in the first round and he was so good, so I figured I would just turn and burn during the handy round and see what happened!”“He’s six, and doesn’t have a ton of experience yet,” continued Kellner about her winning mount Inspiration. “That was probably his fifth or sixth derby, but he actually won the last one we did too, so his head is going to start getting too big,” Kellner joked.While heavy rain hit the Wellington area earlier in the week, the feature class was still able to be held on the Derby Field Annex, which Kellner was happy about: “I actually haven’t shown on grass since I was about seventeen years old, so it was nice to get out there and the footing was beautiful. That field is phenomenal.”Lauren Gee of Valdosta, GA claimed the top two spots in Sunday’s $500 Pony Hunter Classic. The blue ribbon was awarded to Aquitaine Equine’s Eastside after receiving a final score of 168, while the red ribbon was awarded to Team Weston LLC’s Tina Turner after a final score of 163.

“Golden Girls” house in LA sells for way above ask

first_imgThe Golden Girls cast and the Brentwood home (Getty, Realtor)Los Angeles’ “Golden Girls” house sold quickly and for well above its asking price.The mid-century home that appeared on the 1980s-era sitcom sold for $4 million, a full $1 million above the asking price it listed with a month ago, according to the Wall Street Journal.The Brentwood home’s exterior was used for the exterior of the Florida home in “The Golden Girls” because location scouts thought the floral landscaping gave it a Sunshine State-esque vibe.The buyers weren’t especially big fans of the sitcom and were more interested in the architecture and location, according to the Journal.Still, its pop culture connection didn’t hurt. Douglas Elliman listing agent Rachelle Rosten said she was surprised by how strong interest was in the property.“I knew there were a lot of ‘Golden Girls’ fans in the world but I had no idea there were this many,” she told the Journal.While the home’s connection to the popular sitcom couldn’t hurt its value, the property itself has plenty of attractive qualities, in particular its preserved mid-century styling.The kitchen is painted in avocado and turquoise colors, there’s a Japanese-style wraparound porch, and the living room has tall vaulted ceilings that connect through large glass doors to a covered porch.There were around 20 offers during its 14 days on the market and a bidding war ensued among 9 parties, Rosten said.

Dave Grohl – “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” [Video: The Late Late Show with James Corden]Kurstin shared his thoughts on the forthcoming album in a press release. He explained,When I want to listen to hard-rock music there’s still nothing that hits me like they do. Every time I hear them it takes me back to when I first found them on the radio, and it felt so dangerous to me—like they were from a whole other world. It would be so great if people who would never usually listen to Van Halen heard this record, and then ended falling in love with them too.The duo will embark on a 15-date tour in support of their Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen release, which will include a tour-opening performance at Los Angeles, CA’s John Anson Ford Theater on August 2nd. Grohl and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails) are set to join the duo in L.A.For a full list of The Bird and the Bee’s upcoming tour dates, ticketing, and more information, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Eight-Year-Old Killed, Three Injured in Alabama Mall Shooting

first_imgHoover Mayor Frank Brocato said he visited with the boy’s parents Friday evening. “We don’t know at this point what led to the shooting or how many gunmen were involved,” police Capt. Gregg Rector said in an earlier news release. Fatal shooting inside Hoover mall “This was just a very senseless tragedy and of course they are devastated by this,” Brocato said. He asked residents in the city to pray for the family. “He was bright, articulate, and very convincing. We even tried to convince him to become a lawyer,” former assistant principal Van James said in the school system statement. The Bessemer City School system identified the 8-year-old victim as Royta Giles Jr. (pronounced Roy-TAY Jyles), who would have been a third grader this fall at Jonesboro Elementary School. Multiple shots were reported fired, police said. Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis said the child was killed in the afternoon shooting at the Riverchase Galleria. The police chief said a girl and two adults were also hospitalized after the shooting. Authorities continue their investigation of a shooting at Riverchase Galleria shopping mall, Friday, July 3, 2020, in Hoover, Ala., that left an 8-year-old boy dead and three other people hospitalized. (Carol Robinson/The Birmingham News via AP) HOOVER, Ala. (AP) – An 8-year-old boy was killed Friday in a shooting at an Alabama shopping mall that left three other people injured, police said. Annalisa Pope, who works at Hollister in the mall, told WBMA-TV in a telephone interview that she heard six to seven shots that “sounded like they were coming from every direction.” The school system described him as “a smart child, who was a jewel, with big dreams of someday entering the music industry.”center_img The mall was evacuated after the shooting. “It wasn’t just one or two,” Pope said. “That’s what got me off guard. They (the shots) just kept going.” The mall in suburban Birmingham was the site of a 2018 police shooting where an officer fatally shot a Black man with a gun after mistaking him for the gunman in an earlier shooting at the mall. The shooting of 21-year-old Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr. prompted a series of protests at the mall. The Alabama attorney general’s office cleared the officer, saying he acted “reasonably under the circumstances” in the encounter that spanned approximately five seconds. Hoover police asked anyone was in the mall who witnessed the shooting to call authorities. Police did not give a motive for the shooting near the food court inside the mall. Derzis said police are working promising leads, but did not say if they had identified suspects. “This is certainly a tragic situation when you have an innocent child who gets caught in the middle of an altercation between others,” Derzis said. All contents © copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. “It felt so close,” she said. “It was so surreal. It doesn’t even feel real right now. You wouldn’t expect something like that to happen out of nowhere on a normal, Friday afternoon.” Authorities continue their investigation of a shooting at Riverchase Galleria shopping mall, Friday, July 3, 2020, in Hoover, Ala., that left an 8-year-old boy dead and three other people hospitalized.
