Apple won’t have a little bundle of shareholder joy next week, iOS developers can now get their map data from Mountain View, and one team of cops has a mission—if they choose to accept it. The remainders for Friday, February 22, 2013 are cops on the edge.
A district judge has put the kibosh on a proposal to be aired by Apple at next week’s shareholder meeting, which would have bundled three separate issues—including one about the company’s ability to issue preferred stock—into a single vote.

Part of me is hoping that this is just a really, really clever marketing scheme for a new TV pilot.
