Let's look at it a different way. What patents does AOL hold? Article says Verizon might spin off some of AOL but will they keep patents to use against others? I thought AOL was dead a long time ago but it just won't go away.
1, 3, and 5 are only a short term improvement for Microsoft. Windows 10 will have issues being adopted because of the lack of ActiveX in their new browser (IE will be available but I can't see it being supported for long). The joke about Windows 11 never being released (Windows 10 will just have continuous updates) is simply a recognition that Windows 10 is simply NT with window dressing (yes, OSX can be seen as the same thing). Microsoft hasn't really come up with...
http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/02/27/ericsson-unloads-legal-barrage-against-apple-in-ongoing-patent-dispute "Ericsson on Friday announced it filed seven lawsuits against Apple in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, as well as two ITC complaints, over 41 separate patents covering a variety of wireless standards and technology." Apple didn't start this one.
Read some of the lead-up articles and you'll get additional information but no actual numbers (generally these are considered confidential information). What this article fails to remind readers is that Ericsson initially filed in the best court in the world, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. /s 
To each his own.... but, your negatives about iOS demonstrate what you want a tablet to do, which isn't necessarily what Apple intended. The iPhone and iPad are not marketed as full-featured computers for traditional desktop publishing or simple writing, which seem to be what you want it to do. The iPad is a whole lot more than an old word processor. As for iOS not being a real OS, what is a real OS to you? Only Windows or one of the hundred versions of linux? Does OSX fit...
Must be new to Apple products. iOS is the operating system on iPhones and iPads, it's not a piece of hardware, which is what the Mac is. iOS and OSX are actually fairly compatible, in fact a whole lot more compatible than they used to be. iPads are a special use product that works for a whole lot of people. Maybe they don't work for you but suggesting Apple build something similar to a Surface is embarrassing. The Surface is a product looking for a solution. Is it a tablet...
Not just Facebook. Ancestry.com (and others) already have a DNA component to their databases. They say it makes it easier to locate relatives but we all know what happens when certain groups collect this type of information, it ends up in the hands of government officials who end up using it to locate people of interest to them, regardless of how it's obtained. Maybe I've watched too many movies but DNA seems to be the one thing about a person that is unique (except for...
Not Apple's fault. Google requires certain specs and they didn't feel the original Apple TV met them.  I know you were being sarcastic but for those who don't read or understand this, I made sure they understood why YouTube isn't on older Apple TVs. Of course, I'm still upset these channels still require a cable or satellite service. They're just cluttering up my screen and forcing Apple to come up with a better channel guide.
It's ironic that the DOJ continues to pick on Apple on everything they do. "Discussions" like the one purported to being taken between Apple and the labels is business as usual in just about every other line of business. The oil/gas company does it all the time. Doctors and insurance companies buy off each other as well. Let's not even get started with the unethical things Amazon and Google do all the time. Apple doesn't sell user's information, they encrypt as much data...
@Kenn, what you don't realize is you only invested $13/share in the company and that money only went to Apple if you invested during their IPO. Otherwise, all you're doing is gambling your money in the Wall Street crap shoot. Unless someone can prove me wrong, after the IPO, there has been a fixed number of stocks (adjusted for splits and buy backs) that Wall Street has gambled with. Apple doesn't owe AAPL gablers/investors anything, they only owe people who've bought...
