Typical legal shenanigans. Michael Devine filed a lawsuit, the lawyers co-opted it into a class action and effectively took all the proceeds for themselves, leaving the actual plaintiffs with empty pockets (or useless "vouchers"). I wish more class actions were subject to a smell test vs. simply being rubberstamped.
 Does Skype still route all calls through Microsoft's NSA-friendly servers?
DOJ sues Apple in 3...  2...  1...
 Pro bono?  Class action -- by its very nature -- makes lawyers money at the expense of the plaintiffs, who usually get some meaningless token such as small discounts toward some future purchase.
Cutting Google Search from the iOS experience pie, one slice at a time.
 Apparently parents will have the option to not buy apps from developers who don't agree to support Family Sharing.   
 I don't believe I've ever heard those words phrased together that way before.  
 That's great for anyone foolish enough to run an insecure browser like IE.
 If the CS/CIS departments have done their jobs, the students will have learned how to program and develop software (which are not the same thing) and should be able to easily adapt to new languages to solve the task at hand.  The difference between education and training.
Since I travel with my iPhone and ATV 3, I'm already able to do this, I've just had to go the extra step to set up a hotspot on the iPhone for the ATV to join.  This looks like it will simplify the experience.   I still don't see why the ATV setup doesn't include a basic browser so hotel WiFi networks with login screens would be easier to join.
