Apple slapped with $24M fine for stealing tech from old SkyTel pagers


Apple on Tuesday was ordered to pay a $23.6 million fine to Texas-based Mobile Telecommunications Technologies after being found guilty on Monday evening of infringing six patents.

This marks the second recent trial in which Apple was accused of stealing pager technology — the first was in California last month and Apple escaped unscathed.
