Microsoft plans to discount the price of its Surface Pro tablets by $100 through the end of August. The discounted price affects the 64 and 128 GB models of the software giant?s first in-house hardware product, cutting the cost to $700 and $800 out of the box, respectively. Apple may continue to import and sell certain older iPads and iPhones made to use on AT&T's network, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said on Saturday in overturning a ban issued by a trade panel. After reviewing the United States International Trade Commission?s order to ban some patent violating older-model Apple iPhones and iPads, the Obama administration has vetoed a product ban that would have forced Apple to stop selling them. Kristin Huguet, an Apple spokeswoman said ?We applaud the administration for standing up for innovation in this landmark case.? Samsung owns the patents in question. less
