A labourer welds steel frames at a steel factory in Huaibei The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Thursday it launched an investigation into complaints by United States Steel Corp that Chinese competitors stole its trade secrets, fixed prices and misrepresented the origin of their exports to the United States. U.S. Steel, in its complaint under section 337 of the main U.S. tariff law, is seeking to halt nearly all imports from China's largest steel producers and trading houses. The commission identified 40 Chinese steel makers and distribution subsidiaries as respondents, including Baosteel , Hebei Iron and Steel Group , Wuhan Iron and Steel Co Ltd , Anshan Iron and Steel Group and Jiangsu Shagang Group.

Google beats Oracle in $9 billion Android trial

A woman holds her smart phone which displays the Google home page, in this picture illustration By Jim Christie SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. jury handed Google a major victory on Thursday in a long-running copyright battle with Oracle Corp over Android software used to run most of the world's smartphones. The jury unanimously upheld claims by Google that its use of Oracle's Java development platform to create Android was protected under the fair-use provision of copyright law, bringing trial to a close without Oracle winning any of the $9 billion in damages it requested. "We strongly believe that Google developed Android by illegally copying core Java technology to rush into the mobile device market," Oracle General Counsel Dorian Daley said in a statement.


Vietnam restricted access to Facebook during Obama visit: activists

U.S. President Barack Obama reacts as he attends a town hall meeting with members of the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative at the GEM Center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam By Yasmeen Abutaleb SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The Vietnamese government restricted access to Facebook Inc inside Vietnam for several days this week as part of a broader crackdown on human rights and political dissidents during a visit by President Barack Obama, two activist organizations said on Thursday. Officials of Access Now, a digital rights organization, and Viet Tan, a Vietnamese pro-democracy group, said the social media site was restricted and at times blocked inside Vietnam from Sunday to Wednesday, citing reports from people inside the country on Twitter and to Access Now's digital security help service. The move coincides with a trend toward restrictions on Facebook in countries including China, Uganda and Turkey during politically sensitive times as the 1.6 billion-person social network grows more powerful.

This might be Lenovo's new Droid

This might be Lenovo's new Droid Lenovo has a big event coming up on June 9th, and one of the things we might see then (or shortly thereafter) is a new lineup of Droids. VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass leaked an image showing what appears to be three color options for this next round of Droid phones — and they look pretty nice. In fact, I'm not sure that there's any difference aside from the "Moto" branding being replaced with "Droid" branding beneath the lens.


Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Independently, playing video games and watching movies are immensely enjoyable activities. But when the two mix, the result is often an exercise in disappointment. Likely rooted in Hollywood's never-ending effort to print money without exercising an ounce of creativity, movie executives always seem keen on taking whatever video game happens to be hot at the moment and turning it into a movie. Even in the face of ridicule and a string of box office failures, we'll likely never see Hollywood stop trying to turn popular video games into hit films. DON'T MISS:  The iPhone 7 might actually be in trouble So with the latest video game inspired movie disaster just around the corner (read: Warcraft, which is set to hit theaters on June 10), our sister site Variety recently compiled a list outlining the 7 worst video game adaptations of all time. Now I know what you're all thinking: how could they have possibly narrowed the list down to only 7? It's a valid question, but the list itself is nonetheless pretty solid. Below are a few of the highlights. Double Dragon I loved playing Double Dragon back in the day, both in the arcade and on the old NES. But was this video game really deserving of a movie? Released in 1994, with Scott Wolf and Alyssa Milano as part of the ensemble, the film was a bust from day one. Not surprisingly, the film has a score of just 8% on Rotten Tomatoes. Curious as to what this monstrosity of a film looked like? Check out the trailer below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9escFiqUJ0U Super Mario Bros Likely the most influential, iconic and widely recognized video game of all time, Super Mario Bros has been a successful game franchise for decades. And with good reason, the characters are beloved and fit in nicely to any number of varying environments. Unfortunately, the notion of two plumbers serving as the focal point of a movie is a stretch that even Mario and Luigi can't make sense of. Summing things up aptly, Variety notes: Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo stepped into the red and green overalls of two of the most iconic video game characters of all time. Unfortunately that's about all this movie had in common with the games. Looking past the atrocity they pulled on the Goombas, this film was such a critical and financial disaster that Hoskins has gone on record saying it was "the worst thing I ever did. Even the tagline for the film was atrocious: "This ain't no game. It's a live-action thrill ride!" The trailer for the forgettable 1993 film can be viewed below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnWShw6EeSc Make sure to hit the source link below for the full list of atrocious video game movie adaptations. From Mortal Kombat to the laughably bad  Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li  , you'll undoubtedly see more than a few recognizable titles you probably wish you could forget about permanently. As a quick aside, some notably bad video game movies that didn't make Variety's final list include Max Payne , Hitman , and Wing Commander .

Trump takes aim at U.S. environmental regulations to boost oil sector

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at news conference in Bismarck, North Dakota By Valerie Volcovici and Emily Stephenson BISMARCK, N.D. (Reuters) - Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, promised on Thursday to roll back some of America's most ambitious environmental policies if elected, actions that he said would revive the ailing U.S. oil and coal industries and bolster national security. Trump said he would pull the United States out of the U.N. global climate accord, approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and rescind measures by President Barack Obama to cut U.S. emissions and expand protections for U.S. waterways.

Watch right here as SpaceX attempts a difficult rocket landing

SpaceX is ramping up the number of launches of its Falcon 9 rocket, which is good for the company, and great for fans of large explosions. Tonight, Elon Musk's rocket company is shooting a commercial communications satellite to geostationary orbit. The first stage will once again try and land on a barge in the ocean, but the trajectory of the launch means that the landing will be "challenging." DON'T MISS:  Microsoft just turned Windows 10 into malware Tonight's payload is THAICOM 8, a commercial comms satellite that needs to get to a high orbit above Southeast Asia. Getting a satellite that high means going faster and higher, which creates problems for the landing. The Falcon 9 first stage uses whatever leftover fuel it has to decelerate and land, so the higher and faster the rocket has to go for launch, the less fuel it has to slow down before hitting the barge. With those caveats in mind, SpaceX is describing this landing as "challenging." But it said the same thing about the last landing it attempted, and that went more or less perfectly to plan. The launch window opens at 5.40 pm E.T, with a backup launch window tomorrow if needed. SpaceX will be streaming the entire thing, landing included, on the YouTube channel below. https://youtu.be/zBYC4f79iXc

Thiel told the New York Times late Wednesday he has provided around $10 million for the litigation by former wrestler Hulk Hogan, who sued Gawker Media for releasing a sex tape featuring Hogan and a friend's wife. The heretofore secret war against Gawker provoked a range of reactions in the media and in Silicon Valley, with many questioning Thiel's tactics.

Blue Origin will intentionally crash its spaceship during the next test flight

Blue Origin will intentionally crash its spaceship during the next test flight Blue Origin is planning the next test flight of its reusable New Shepard rocket, but CEO Jeff Bezos just revealed a twist: the empty crew capsule, which sits on top of the rocket, will crash-land on purpose. "On this upcoming mission we also plan to stress the crew capsule by landing with an intentionally failed parachute, demonstrating our ability to safely handle that failure scenario," Bezos writes in an email update that was sent out this afternoon. New Shepard is the company's flagship rocket, one that it hopes to use to send tourists to space starting in 2018.

Tiffany's 'old-world luxury' fails to charm millennials

The Tiffany & Co. logo is seen on an awning of their store in Manhasset, New York, For Alan Feid, a 28-year-old looking to buy an engagement ring for his fiancée, the rings he found in the diamond district in Manhattan were just as good as the ones he saw at Tiffany & Co's flagship store on Fifth Avenue. Tiffany's jewelry, long considered a status symbol, has been patronized by Hollywood A-listers and the political elite, and coveted by well-to-do baby boomers who made the brand synonymous with weddings and anniversaries. This growing demographic of high-earning but not-yet-rich millennials - with annual salaries of $100,000-$250,000 - are spending more on brands that offer them a more contemporary look or on jewelry made by niche designers.


Google wins Oracle copyright fight over Android code

Google wins Oracle copyright fight over Android code Today, a jury in California's Northern District federal court declared that Google's use of copyright-protected code in Android was fair use, freeing it of any liability. The case centers around an API developed by Java and owned by Oracle, which allows outside programs to easily interact with Java programs. Android uses the same API, and in 2014 a federal appeals court ruled that Oracle has a valid copyright claim on the API code, potentially putting Google on the hook for billions of dollars in damages.

Justin Bieber and Skrillex are getting sued over Sorry

Justin Bieber and Skrillex are getting sued over Sorry Indie musician Casey Dienel (aka White Hinterland) is suing Justin Bieber, Skrillex, and the team of co-writers behind Bieber's 2015 mega-hit "Sorry" over the song's resemblance to Dienel's "Ring the Bell," released in 2014 as part of her album Baby. TMZ reported on the lawsuit this afternoon, noting that Dienel's issue with "Sorry" is rooted in the "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" that opens "Ring the Bell." (You can hear said vocal riff cycling through the first 10 seconds of "Ring the Bell," and a similar snippet of melody is repeated throughout "Sorry.")
