The family of a
co-founder who committed suicide blames prosecutors for his death. Aaron Swartz hanged himself in his Brooklyn apartment Friday night. The 26-year-old had fought to make online content free to the public. As a teenager helped create RSS. In 2011, he was charged with stealing millions of scientific journals from a computer archive at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in an attempt to make them freely available. He had pleaded not guilty, and his federal trial was to begin next month. If convicted, he faced decades in prison. Swartz's family in Chicago says "Aaron's death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach."

It says one of the sources told the newspaper that the Cupertino company has also cut orders for components other than screens. The Journal says it was told Apple notified the suppliers of the order cut last month.
