BGR has just learned through multiple sources that Apple is set to release a celebrity-packed commercial for the company’s new Beats Solo2 headphones either today or tomorrow. The video itself looks like something Beats would have done on its own, but it definitely has an Apple-like feel and vibe to it, which actually works quite nicely with the Beats theme. Look for Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Funkmaster Flex, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, Fabolous, Norman Reedus, Serena Williams, Alesso, Victor Cruz and more. It also looks like the video was shot with only iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, all with only the front-facing camera as part of something Apple’s doing called the #SoloSelfie campaign. Here’s the full spot: UPDATE: It

By Foo Yun Chee BRUSSELS (Reuters) - When EU politicians call for the break-up of Google, it can sound like sour grapes, the anti-American backlash of an aging Europe envious, and fearful, of the wealth and growing power of young U.S. tech giants. But should any American take time on Thanksgiving to scoff at Thursday's non-binding vote in the European Parliament, when lawmakers may urge EU regulators to get tough with the search engine Goliath, they should know that behind the EU antitrust probe of Google stand not only Europeans but U.S. competitors. ...

By Jonathan Stempel (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected Motorola Mobility LLC's attempt to hold several Asian suppliers liable under U.S. antitrust law for fixing prices of mobile phone displays sold to its foreign units. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago said Motorola Mobility, a unit of Lenovo Group Ltd, could not invoke U.S. antitrust law because its foreign subsidiaries had been the "immediate victims" of a conspiracy to boost prices on liquid crystal display screens. ...

One of the iPhone's cleverest features is its ability to take a screenshot of the device just by holding down two buttons. I take screenshots every day, of all kinds of things: errant tweets that I know are about to be deleted, mobile boarding passes for a flight home, or images from the web that I might want to share in a story or on social media. The problem is that these screenshots are useful for about 24 hours — but I never go back to delete them, because iOS doesn't offer a way to sort through them. Screenshots are the main reason my camera roll looks so cluttered.
