updated 09:53 pm EST, Wed March 5, 2014

Wal-Mart offering 5c for $29, 5s for $119 with two-year contract

Walmart has reduced prices significantly on the Samsung Galaxy S4 for users signing two-year contracts with AT&T or Verizon. The Galaxy S4 has been reduced to $49, down from $99. A 16GB iPhone 5s has also been reduced to $119, with the iPhone 5c seeing a cut to $29. Additionally, consumers purchasing a Samsung phone with a two-year contract will be given a $50 Walmart gift card.

Dell UK installing Firefox at a cost contrary to Mozilla trademark policy

In some very limited circumstances, Dell UK is charging users to install Firefox on some of its computers for customers. The Next Web was told by Mozilla's general counsel Denelle Dixon-Thayer that the companies have no agreement and "our trademark policy makes clear that this is not permitted, and we are investigating this specific report."

Dell believes that it is in its right to charge for the install, saying that "the fee would cover the time and labour involved for factory personnel to load a different image than is provided on the system's standard configuration." Mozilla differs, and claims that its trademark policy prohibits such a charge.
