Apple, Amazon, eBay: Tech Pre-Market

Stocks in this article: AAPL AMZN EBAY

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) shares were off 0.44% to $447.35 on news the company lost a judgement against Samsung.

The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that Apple's iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2 3G sold on AT&T's (T) network infringe upon a data transmission patent held by Samsung. This is a blow to Apple, which has been entangled in legal battles with Samsung before.

This is a reversal of a September ruling that sided with Apple, saying the Cupertino, Calif.-based technology company did not infringe upon any of the four patents Samsung was claiming.

The good news for Apple is that most of these products are no longer sold in the U.S. The iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 may be removed later this year, as Apple refreshes the product lines.

Apple said it would appeal the ruling.


Amazon.com (AMZN - Get Report) fell 0.4% to $264.60 as the company gets set to expand its online grocery delivery business.

Reuters reports that Amazon could build new warehouses to refrigerate the fresh food. It also has space to store up to 1 million general products

Amazon has been testing the service, named AmazonFresh, in Seattle, for at least five years, but is going to expand the business, perhaps as soon as this week. The service may arrive in Los Angeles this week, with the San Francisco Bay Area getting it later this year, according to two people with knowledge of the plans.


eBay (EBAY - Get Report) shares were little changed in pre-market as the company gets set to open "shoppable windows" in New York, as it seeks to strengthen its relationship with existing retailers.

There will be four screens in New York, with the first running from June 8 to July 7. The windows will sell 30 items from Kate Spade Saturday. Shoppers will be able to touch the screens to buy the products, and have a courier deliver it to them within an hour, with payment coming from PayPal Here.
