Gov. Brown said, “Our state’s first responders deserve the best resources we can get for them, and by first working to identify our needs and review all of our options during a competitive process, we were able to confidently conclude FirstNet is the best choice for this service. “The work of the State Interoperability Executive Council, our bi-state RFP teams, and our financial and legal review teams have been invaluable to lead us to this conclusion.”

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) held volume of 12.65 Million shares as compare to its average volume of 26126.50 shares. Two Israelis have filed an over $120M class-action lawsuit against Apple a week after the maker verified that it is deliberately slowing down iPhone models with old batteries to avoid the devices from shutting down.
According to a report in Israeli newspaper Haaretz late on Monday, the suit filed here argued that the company breached its basic duties toward users by failing to disclose that ‘innocent’ software updates would negatively impact their phone use. The claimants said that the software updates impaired their ability to browse the web, check email and use various applications.
“There is no doubt that information about the device slowing is important, and cardinal, and users had the right to get (that information) from Apple before deciding whether to install the software updates,” the lawsuit was cited as saying. On Friday, Apple faced two class-action lawsuits from iPhone users in the US. Apple was sued for not disclosing sooner that it issued software updates deliberately slowing older-model phones so aging batteries lasted longer, saying Apple’s silence led them to wrongly conclude that their only option was to buy newer, pricier iPhones.
