BRIEFCASE DELIVERY SERVICE SETTLES LAWSUIT.

Byline: - Staff and Wire Services

The PDQuick delivery service agreed to a $150,000 settlement with two Pasadena women who were attacked in their homes by one of the company's drivers, the victims' attorney said today.

A representative for Pink Dot, which owns PDQuick, declined to comment on the case.

A Pasadena Superior Court jury in March convicted driver Richard Connors of one count each of sexual battery and battery for his September 2000 attacks on Wood's clients.

Connors is being retried on four other charges on which jurors deadlocked. He is due in Pasadena Superior Court on that case Friday.

Class-action suit set against Apple

CUPERTINO - Apple Computer Inc. faces a lawsuit alleging that it misled consumers and made low-quality software upgrades for older computers to ``accelerate a deliberate policy of planned obsolescence.''

According to the proposed class-action suit filed Wednesday in Superior Court in Los Angeles, the Cupertino-based company encouraged customers in 1998 and 1999 to buy their latest PowerPC G3 computers, while promising that the units would be capable of running Apple's next-generation operating system called OS X.

The company also said OS X would be ``fully optimized'' to run on those G3 models.

But Apple, which released Mac OS X last year, broke both promises, the lawsuit alleges.

Apple declined to comment on the pending litigation.

Nissan, Hyundai, BMW recall autos

DETROIT - Nissan North America Inc. last month began sending out letters announcing the recall of about 116,000 of its 2000-01 model Sentras because of a sensor problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall this week along with those for four Hyundai models and select 2002 model BMW 5 Series.

About 103,000 of the Nissan vehicles, manufactured between Jan. 20, 2000, and May 31, 2001, were being recalled in the United States to replace crank position sensors, company spokesman Dean Case said Friday. Hyundai's recall includes more than 86,500 Sonatas with a defective air-bag warning light that could improperly illuminate. The recall of 1999-2001 Sonatas involves vehicles manufactured between March 1998 and November 2000.

Dealers will service the front-seat side-impact air-bag wiring harness in the recall, which Hyundai spokesman Mike Anson said was not conducted for safety reasons.

NHSTA said BMW is recalling 1,318 of its 2002 model 5 Series manufactured with standard suspensions in September and October because of a problem with the tire mounting process that could cut the outer sidewall surface of some tires.

NHSTA said the vehicles involved were equipped with certain Continental ContiTouringContact CH95 EcoPlus tires. Dealers will inspect all five tires for a possible cut and replace them if needed. Owner notification began Dec. 10.
