    Breaking news today from New York had Apple once more trending worldwide, but this time it was not for the release of a new iPhone or iPad, but rather because, as Mashable reports, a New York district judge has held up a complaint that Apple was guilty of conspiring with publishers to fix the retail prices of e-books, and thus breaking antitrust and state laws. Here’s what U.S. District Judge Denise Cole said about the ruling, courtesy of Mashable:
    [FONT=&amp]Apple was the only one of the named companies that defended the case in court, with the five publishers in question (Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin, and Simon & Schuster) all settling with the Department of Justice and the 33 relevant states out of court. Damages to be paid by Apple will be determined in another trial. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]Apple has issued the following statement strongly denying the result of the ruling and saying that it intends to appeal. [/FONT]
