Premium Lock Tech news: Apple $1B more in NC; Netflix shrinking DVD biz; CoLucid sold; Biogen settles suit; satellites track jets; GPS anomalies

Note to our readers: The Bulldog wrapup of technology news, which has been a staple of WRAL TechWire for years, is taking on a new look. We are expanding it to incorporate Triangle and regional headlines, not just news from The Associated Press and other wires. In effect, the Bulldog will become the new home for other occasional WTW posts such as Triangle Headlines. No one publication in the Triangle can adequately cover all the tech and life science news that's happening daily - well, make that hourly. The Bulldog, which draws its name from an old newspaper term for early editions and from WTW Editor Rick Smith's late bulldog Roxie, will attempt to bring you a daily wrapup of highlights.
