China gets first bitcoin ATM, skirting bank crackdown

BTC China, one of the country's leading digital currency exchanges, has installed China's first bitcoin ATM and launched an online app allowing individuals to buy and sell bitcoins using mobile phones, skirting local banking regulations seen as increasingly hostile to so-called crypto-currencies.

Rising interest from mainland Chinese speculators was credited for driving up global bitcoin prices last year to above $1,000 on some exchanges. But a subsequent crackdown by the People's Bank of China (PBOC) has seen the digital currency sag, changing hands below $530 on Wednesday, according to exchange-tracker CoinDesk.

That, in combination with scandals involving hacking, theft, and fraud, have put pressure on digital currency markets around the world. Tokyo-based bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox has given up plans to rebuild under bankruptcy protection and asked a local court to allow it to be liquidated, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Unlike conventional money, bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are generated by computers and are not backed by any central bank or government, or by physical assets. They can be exchanged through nearly any file transfer mechanism for goods, services or cash - but the latter has proved a problem.

Many regulatory agencies around the world are concerned that digital currencies can be easily used for money laundering or the illegal purchase of weapons and narcotics, and have moved to control or prohibit their use in ordinary commerce.

In December, the PBOC banned financial institutions from trading in bitcoin, saying the government would act to prevent money laundering risks from the digital currency. It did not ban trading by individuals. Last week, two bitcoin exchanges said their trading accounts at certain domestic banks would be closed down by the lenders.

BTC China's chief executive Bobby Lee said by telephone that his exchange is still in operation and has yet to receive any notice from the bank that his accounts are being closed. "News reports said it would be shut down by April 15. It's April 16 and nothing has happened," he said.

While trading volumes on his exchange are down 80-90 percent from their peak, transaction levels were still healthy, said Lee, on par with levels last September prior to bitcoin's spike.

CAFE ATM

The new ATM-like services from BTC China do not involve the banking system at all.

The physical ATM, located in a cafe at a mall in Shanghai's Zhangjiang technology park area, allows people to buy bitcoin directly from the exchange for yuan inserted into the machine. Users cannot withdraw cash.

Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner hacked with glue mould

The fingerprint sensor on Samsung's Galaxy S5 handset has been hacked less than a week after the device went on sale.

Berlin-based Security Research Labs fooled the equipment using a mould it had previously created to spoof the sensor on Apple's iPhone 5S.

The researchers said they were concerned that thieves could exploit the flaw in Samsung's device to trigger money transfers via PayPal.

The payments firm played down the risk.

"While we take the findings from Security Research Labs [SRL] very seriously, we are still confident that fingerprint authentication offers an easier and more secure way to pay on mobile devices than passwords or credit cards," it said.

It added that even if users were hacked it would cover their losses.

A spokesman for Samsung was unable to comment. Reject pile

SRL created its hack by lifting a real fingerprint from a smartphone screen and then carrying out a fairly elaborate process to create a mould out of glue and graphite spray. This was then swiped across the sensor that sits in the phone's home button. "The fingerprint mould was actually one I made for the Apple device back in September," project manager Ben Schlabs told the BBC.

"All I had to do was take it out of the reject pile as it wasn't one of the ones that ended up working on the iPhone 5S for whatever reason.

"It was the first one I tried and it worked immediately on the S5."

Although the fake fingerprint proved easy to use, Mr Schlabs added that he was concerned that Samsung's software would not lock out thieves who had less luck, allowing them to make repeated attempts.

"Samsung could have enforced a password [lock-out] after five failed swipe attempts," he said.

"But the way it works is that if it fails five times and asks for a password, if you just turn the screen off and back on again you can have another try."

This is not true of the iPhone 5S. Reveal transactions

While Apple currently limits its fingerprint scanner to unlocking the iPhone and verifying purchases in its own online store, Samsung has allowed its sensor to be used by third-party apps that add its Pass API (application program interface) to their code. PayPal's mobile app is the first to take advantage of this. The software can be used to send and request money and reveal past transactions.

SRL acknowledged that the fingerprint scanner made it simpler to access, but criticised the company for not requiring a second form of authentication, such as a Pin code.

However, PayPal said Galaxy S5 users should not be deterred from using the feature.

"The scan unlocks a secure cryptographic key that serves as a password replacement for the phone," it said.

"We can simply deactivate the key from a lost or stolen device, and you can create a new one.

IBM hit with $2.5 billion lawsuit by Mexican mobile phone operator

Mexican mobile phone operator Iusacell SA de CV sued IBM Corp on Wednesday, accusing the U.S. technology giant of making fraudulent representations that caused it to lose $2.5 billion in profits.

The lawsuit, filed in federal district court in New York, was heavily redacted, leaving many of the claims unclear. But the complaint centered on a contract Iusacell claimed IBM induced it to enter into in Mexico.

"Events subsequent to the execution of the agreement have revealed that IBM both knowingly misrepresented and wrongfully concealed from Iusacell material facts both before and during the parties relationship," Iusacell said in the complaint.

The lawsuit seeks more than $2.5 billion in damages.

A spokeswoman for IBM did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Brazil's Rousseff looks weak, but so do her election rivals

With Brazil's economy struggling, a scandal at its state-run oil company and nearly three-quarters of voters saying they want change from their government, President Dilma Rousseff looks vulnerable in her bid for re-election this October.

But for her to lose, somebody else has to win. And her two main rivals have big, potentially fatal flaws of their own.

Senator Aecio Neves and former governor Eduardo Campos, who are both running on centrist, pro-business platforms, have failed to make significant headway in polls and still badly trail the left-leaning Rousseff despite her recent struggles.

That suggests that Rousseff, while no longer the strong favorite she was a year ago, is still likely to win the vote. A recent surge in Brazil's stock and currency markets - fueled by investors who are tired of Rousseff's heavy hand in the economy and are betting on a change in government - risks being overdone, or at least premature.

The challengers' biggest problem, polls suggest, is an inability to win over Brazil's lower-middle class, which swelled during an economic boom last decade and now accounts for more than half of the country's 200 million people.

That group, known here as the "C Class," has benefited from significant gains in income and quality of life and many fear that a change in government could jeopardize their progress.

Many of those same voters are also frustrated with poor health care and education, as well as high inflation and other symptoms of Brazil's recent economic slowdown, and could be convinced by the right candidate to make a leap, pollsters say.

However, in a country where deep class divisions are still a fact of life and politics, neither Campos nor Neves, who are both well-off, well-spoken grandsons of famous politicians, have been able to convince the masses they are on their side.

"There's a desire for change, but it coexists with a substantial conservatism," said Renato Meirelles, a pollster for Data Popular who has extensively studied the "C Class."

"I haven't seen an indication yet that (Campos and Neves) will be able to achieve that balance at a national level."

The latest survey, released April 5 by pollster Datafolha, showed Rousseff with 38 percent support, while Neves had 16 percent and Campos 10 percent. Remaining respondents said they would vote for other candidates or spoil their ballots, a common protest tactic in a country where voting is mandatory.

If the election goes to a runoff, as many expect, Rousseff would beat both Neves and Campos by about 20 percentage points, Datafolha said. Other polls have shown similar results.

Hundreds missing as S Korea ferry sinks

Almost 300 people remain unaccounted for after a ferry carrying 459 people capsized and sank off South Korea.

The ferry, carrying mainly school students, was travelling from the port of Incheon, in the north-west, to the southern resort island of Jeju.

Emergency teams are using floodlights and flares to search the stricken vessel through the night. Those rescued have been taken to a nearby island.

Four people are now said to have died and dozens of others have been hurt. South Korean officials had earlier said that 368 people had been plucked to safety, but later said there had been a counting error.

They have now revised down the number rescued to 174.

Images showed the ferry listing at a severe angle and then later almost completely submerged, with only a small part of its hull visible. It sank within two hours of sending a distress signal, reports said.

There are fears this could turn out to be South Korea's biggest maritime disaster for more than 20 years, says the BBC's Martin Patience in Seoul. Cause unclear

Several coast guard, military and commercial vessels were involved in the rescue effort, which unfolded rapidly on Wednesday morning.

Pictures from the scene showed rescue teams balanced on the sinking hull pulling teenagers from cabin windows. Some of their classmates jumped into the sea as the ship went down.

Reports suggest some of those rescued were picked up by nearby commercial vessels.

The US Navy has sent an amphibious assault ship, the USS Bonhomme Richard, to assist with the search, officials say.

Megaupload's Dotcom, facing legal threat, launches political party

Internet tycoon Kim Dotcom holds court while bathing in the pool of a sprawling New Zealand mansion, fist bumping and chatting with some of the 700 guests gathered to celebrate the political party he launched last month to promote Internet freedom.

His latest ultra-encrypted file storage site, Mega, will soon go public after a deal that values it at NZ$210 million ($180 million), and Baboom, an online streaming music service designed to bypass record companies, is nearing its hard launch.

In Dotcom's alternate universe, he is fighting extradition from his adopted country to the United States, where the hulking 40-year-old stands accused of massive copyright infringement related to the Megaupload file sharing site he founded in 2005.

Last week, Hollywood studios filed their own lawsuit against Megaupload and Dotcom, and a few days later four major music labels followed their lead, cranking up pressure on the father-of-five who faces an extradition hearing in July.

The parallel lives of the man born Kim Schmitz in West Germany collided dramatically in January, 2012, when his $20 million rented country estate outside Auckland was raided by dozens of New Zealand police in a dawn swoop carried out at the request of the FBI.

Dotcom was cut out of a safe room in the mansion and locked up, and millions of dollars of assets in property, cash, luxury cars and art were seized. He has been released on bail with access to some funds, while his movements are restricted.

His anger over the injustice he says he faced during and after the dramatic raid, which was swiftly followed by the closure of Megaupload, prompted him to set up a political organization called the Internet Party.

"The raid on my family with two helicopters and 72 cops with machine guns, the illegal spying against my family, the unlawful restraining orders - I felt it was a gross abuse of power," he told Reuters, seated in a living room dotted with stained glass windows inlaid with "M" for Mega.

"When you're in an environment like that ... you feel like you want to do something about this injustice."

SEPTEMBER ELECTIONS

The launch of the Internet Party, whose policy platform will be crowd sourced and whose leader will be selected in a process reminiscent of an audition for TV talent show "The X Factor", comes ahead of general elections in September.

Some political commentators have dismissed the party as Dotcom's latest vanity project to goad New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, whom he forced into an apology for illegal surveillance by a government spy agency.

But a proposed tie-up with another fringe party could see it influencing the parliamentary balance of power in New Zealand's German-style proportional voting system.

Separatists fly Russian flag over Ukrainian armored vehicles

Separatists flew the Russian flag on armored vehicles taken from the Ukrainian army on Wednesday, humiliating a Kiev government operation to recapture eastern towns controlled by pro-Moscow partisans.

The armored personnel carriers were driven into the rebel-held town of Slaviansk to waves and shouts of "Russia! Russia!". It was not immediately clear whether they had been captured by rebels or handed to them by Ukrainian deserters.

The military setback leaves Kiev looking impotent before a peace conference in Geneva on Thursday, when its foreign minister will meet his Russian counterpart for the first time since Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich was toppled in February after deadly protests.

Moscow has responded to the overthrow of Yanukovich by declaring the Kiev government an illegitimate gang of fascists and announcing its right to intervene militarily across the former Soviet Union to protect Russian speakers, a new doctrine that has overturned decades of post-Cold War diplomacy.

The Ukrainian government confirmed that six of its armored vehicles were in the hands of separatists. Photos of their number markings showed they were among vehicles taken earlier in the government's attempted "anti-terrorist" operation to secure control of the town of Kramatorsk.

Kiev has sent paratroops to retake towns held by separatists who have declared an independent "People's Republic" in the industrial Donbass region.

The Ukrainian government and its Western allies believe Russia is behind the uprising, which follows Moscow's seizure and annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region last month. Moscow denies it is involved and says Kiev is precipitating civil war by sending troops to put down the revolt.

The Kiev government is seeking to reassert control without bloodshed, which it fears would precipitate a Russian invasion.

The operation is the first test of Kiev's under-funded army, which had until now played no role in six months of internal unrest. The government seems to have resorted to using troops after losing faith that police in the east would stay loyal.

Government troops began their operation on Tuesday, arriving by helicopter to take control of an airfield at Kramatorsk. They drove armored personnel carriers (APCs) flying the Ukrainian flag into the town in the early morning.

But several of the same vehicles later rumbled into Slaviansk, 15 km (9 miles) away, with Russian and separatist flags and armed men in motley combat fatigues on top. They stopped outside the separatist-occupied town hall.

A soldier guarding one of the six troop carriers said he was a member of Ukraine's 25th paratrooper division, the unit sent by Kiev to recapture Slaviansk and Kramatorsk.

Wall Street gains after Chinese data, Yahoo up on Alibaba

U.S. stocks rose for a third straight session on Wednesday after China's economic growth exceeded expectations and Yahoo shares rallied on the strength of revenue growth in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, in which it has a stake.

China, the world's second-largest economy, grew at its slowest pace in 18 months at the start of 2014, but the rise was better than expected and showed some improvement in March.

The global economy should grow steadily at best over the coming year, a Reuters poll showed, but any rapid slowdown in China could upset the progress.

"There is a lot of concern about Chinese growth this year so there is some relief in the GDP number," said Jim Russell, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Cincinnati. "We think that is influencing the market today."

Yahoo (YHOO.O) was the leading percentage gainer on the S&P 500 as revenue growth accelerated in the last quarter of 2013 for Alibaba (IPO-ALIB.N), in which Yahoo holds a 24 percent stake. Yahoo shares jumped 7.3 percent to $36.72.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI rose 94.05 points, or 0.58 percent, to 16,356.61, the S&P 500 .SPX gained 8.84 points, or 0.48 percent, to 1,851.82 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC added 25.309 points, or 0.63 percent, to 4,059.47.

The market has bounced back from last week's pummeling, which saw the S&P 500 post its largest weekly decline since mid-2012. Earnings this week, including those of Citigroup and Coca Cola, as well as a rebound in biotechnology stocks have supported the market.

Intel (INTC.O) shares rose 1 percent to $27.03 a day after the chipmaker posted a quarterly net profit that exceeded Wall Street's estimates.

But Bank of America (BAC.N) slid 3.5 percent to $15.81 after the No. 2 U.S. bank posted a quarterly loss.

U.S. manufacturing output rose for a second straight month in March in a sign of recovery from a harsh and prolonged winter that had put a damper on activity.

Futures had earlier held on to most of their gains even as U.S. housing starts rose less than expected in March and building permits fell, pointing to underlying weakness in the housing market. However applications for home mortgages rose last week as interest rates declined.

Markets continue to keep an eye on east Ukraine, where government forces and separatist pro-Russian militia staged rival shows of force on the eve of talks in Geneva on the former Soviet country's future.

The market will also monitor Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's speech and question and answer session at the Economic Club of New York at 12:25 p.m. EDT for clues on how soon the U.S. central bank expects interest rates to rise.

The Johammer J1, Austria's wild one

The Johammer J1, which bears an undeniable resemblance to the Imperial speeder bikes in Return of the Jedi, is hardly the first battery-powered motorbike, but it is among the few capable of travelling 200km (124 miles) on a single charge. This sort of stamina – roughly equal to that of a gasoline-powered bike – elevates the J1 from the status of Saturday morning toy to bona fide road-tripper.

Though it may be tough to stop staring, the J1’s innovative features go beyond its slippery neo-retro body fairing. The bike has no traditional gauges: speed and battery level are presented within a pair of high-resolution 2.4in colour displays mounted within the round rear-view mirrors. The steering is of the exotic hub-center variety, which separates steering, braking and suspension forces for improved stability. And the body offers two foot-peg positions (unlike a traditional motorbike, the J1 has no foot controls), providing a choice between hunkered-down and laid-back riding positions.

The Johammer bike may be stylish, technically advanced and energy efficient, but fast it is not. A compact 11kW electric motor mounted in the rear wheel hub provides the motivation; matched to a single-speed transmission, the motor’s 14 horsepower are tasked with moving upwards of 400lbs of bike, plus rider. The J1 is electronically limited to 62mph.

Providing the charge is a centre-mounted, 12.6kWh stack of lithium-ion battery cells, developed and manufactured by Johammer itself. The company claims the pack will retain at least 85% of its capacity after four years or 124,000 miles. Recharge to 80% takes 3.5 hours from a 240v socket, or just 80min with the optional 400v charger.

No surprise, straddling the future isn’t cheap.

The J1.150, with a smaller battery pack and a 150km cruising range, commands 23,000 euros (about $32,000); the beefier J1.200 will set its rider back 25,000 euros. For the merely curious, Johammer offers some quality time on the J1, via a 200km guided tour of northern Austria (including a stroll through its factory in the town of Bad Leonfelden), for 290 euros.

Zebra Tech to buy Motorola Solutions' enterprise business

Barcode printer maker Zebra Technologies Corp said it would buy Motorola Solutions Inc's enterprise business, which makes rugged mobile computers, tablets and barcode scanners, for $3.45 billion in its biggest deal ever.

The deal will allow Zebra, whose products help companies such as Amazon Inc track inventory and supply chains, to enhance its portfolio through a range of Internet-connected devices.

Zebra's shares fell 11 percent to $60.77 on the Nasdaq on concerns the company's borrowings to fund the deal would be as big as its market value of $3.44 billion as of Monday's close.

Zebra will finance the deal through a combination of $200 million cash on hand and $3.25 billion in debt, comprising a credit facility and issuance of debt securities.

"It's an aggressive play by Zebra to fortify their position in the entire AIDC (automatic identification and data capture)space," Northcoast Research analyst Keith Housum said.

"It's a good long-term play but in the short term, I think it's going to be challenging," Housum said, noting the large debt and the fact that the enterprise business has struggled to grow organically in the past two years.

The business, which accounts for about a third of Motorola Solutions' total revenue, has suffered as clients delay orders and cut spending.

Zebra, however, said it expected the deal to add to earnings immediately after closing at the end of this year.

After the sale, Motorola Solutions will be left with its core government and public safety business. It will also retain its iDEN products portfolio, which is a part of its enterprise business.

"Upon closing of the transaction, we intend to return the proceeds to our shareholders in a timely fashion," Motorola Solutions Chief Executive Greg Brown said in a statement.

Morgan Stanley, the financial adviser to Zebra, is providing a financing commitment for the debt.

Goldman, Sachs & Co and JP Morgan Securities LLC are Motorola Solutions' financial advisers.

About 4,500 Motorola Solutions' employees will join Zebra's workforce of about 2,600 as of January 25.

Zebra's rivals in its printing business include Hewlett-Packard, Epson and Lexmark, while Ubisense and AeroScout are among its competitors in the location tracking products business.

In October, Zebra launched Zatar, a Web-based software that allows companies to deploy and manage devices and sensors connected to the Internet, also called the "internet of things." (link.reuters.com/tyn58v)

Zebra acquired Hart Systems, which provides Web-based inventory management software to the retail industry, in December.

BlackBerry buys minority stake in healthcare IT firm

BlackBerry Ltd said on Tuesday it bought a minority stake in privately held healthcare IT firm NantHealth, a move that offers a glimpse into the type of niche markets the smartphone maker is targeting as it attempts to engineer a turnaround.

Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry, a pioneer in the smartphone industry, has fallen on hard times as its market share has waned in recent years. As the company attempts to stem losses and remain relevant it is now focused on expanding its services segment that caters to the needs of large clients like banks, law firms and government agencies, among others.

BlackBerry's Chief Executive John Chen, who took the reins at the company less than six months ago, sees healthcare as one of the sectors in which the company has an advantage, due to a heightened focus on patient privacy and BlackBerry's vast array of networks that can manage and secure data on mobile devices.

"BlackBerry's capabilities align closely with NantHealth's," said Chen in a statement on Tuesday. "This investment represents the type of forward-looking opportunities that are vital to our future."

The financial terms of the deal itself were not disclosed, but NantHealth said it does not seek any further funding from BlackBerry beyond its current investment.

The two companies are now working together to develop a new smartphone tailored to the needs of the healthcare sector. The device is likely to get launched late in 2014 or early in 2015, said Jim Mackey, BlackBerry's head of corporate development and strategic planning, in an interview.

"We do plan to make the device available for all, but it will be optimized for viewing 3D images and CT scans," said Mackey, adding that the device will also be usable as a regular smartphone, allowing users to view movies, play games or access consumer applications.

He said the deal with NantHealth exemplifies BlackBerry's focus on the regulated industries such as healthcare.

NANTHEALTH INVESTMENT

California-based NantHealth, whose cloud-based platform is already set up at about 250 hospitals and connects more than 16,000 medical devices, said it sees the tie-up with BlackBerry allowing it to expand its base of services.

"Security and privacy is tantamount to us and to patients," said NantHealth's founder Patrick Soon-Shiong. "BlackBerry's expertise is incredibly valuable to NantHealth as we expand our platform and make it available for wider deployment through a secure mobile device."

Soon-Shiong, a surgeon and businessman, who made billions of dollars selling his two former companies American Pharmaceutical Partners and Abraxis BioScience, said BlackBerry's current focus on services and enterprise clients made it an ideal partner.
