In the face of devastating penalties prepared by Google, Symantec announced plans to sell its SSL issuance certificate business to rival company DigiCert.

BlackBerry in Africa, Amazon in Turkey

Image Would you like to get your hands on a new BlackBerry (BBRY -2.89%) Z10 smartphone before it goes on sale in the U.S. on March 22? Try South Africa. It's been on the shelves there since March 1.
