Grumpy Cat, arguably the internet’s most popular cat and one of its first viral memes, has died aged 7.

I laughed many times to Grumpy Cat.

The App Store antitrust case

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that an antitrust case against Apple could move forward effectively allowing iPhone users to sue the company. The crux of the argument is that Apple only allows apps to be sold on its store and that it takes a 30 percent commission, which inflates the prices. […]

Apple posts $58 billion quarterly revenue

Google gets okay to start drone deliveries

Alphabet Inc’s Wing Aviation unit on Tuesday got the okay to start delivering goods by drone in Virginia later this year, making the sister unit of search engine Google the first company to get U.S. air carrier certification, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

This means Wing can begin a commercial service delivering goods from local businesses to homes, which includes flights beyond visual line of site and over people, the FAA and Wing said. Wing Aviation plans to start commercial package delivery in Blacksburg, Virginia later this year.

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about drone deliveries. There seems to be a lot that can go wrong, but we’ll see.

SoundSource

Change the volume and output device for individual apps. Adjust your Mac’s audio device settings and levels instantly, from anywhere. Even apply built-in and third-party audio effects to any audio on your Mac. It’s all possible right from your menu bar, with SoundSource. This is truly powerful audio control.

For years, if I need an audio utility app, I always go to Rogue Amoeba first. They make great quality apps and chances are they make something that will get the job done. The company’s newest is called SoundSource, but check out the other apps while you’re there.

AT&T, Sprint settle 5GE lawsuit

A spokesperson for AT&T today told Law360 that the matter has been “amicably settled.” Details on the terms of the settlement have not been shared, but AT&T is planning to continue to use its 5GE branding.

I don’t understand why Sprint settled if AT&T is allowed to continue using 5GE. The whole basis for the lawsuit was that 5GE would hurt Sprint’s planned 5G rollout, which makes sense. I don’t like AT&T’s 5GE branding at all—it’s misleading and has nothing to do with 5G.
