$840 million!!  How in the world do they come up with this figure? When the iPad came out in 2010, the total industry revenues for the entire year in 2010, was $838 million.  To be clear, this is not profits for so called price hikes. This is total gross receipts (revenue) for every single ebook sold over the entire year.  The states and US government wants Apple to pay a fine equal to every single ebook sold over the course of a year? This is just plain abuse of the...

I have had Office 2011 for 4 years now.. so at $70/year it would have been $280.  Pretty sure I did not pay that much. 
your point?  doesn't matter which fish eat which fish.  Samsung needs Google more than Google needs Samsung.  Samsung is just a HW manufacturer with a big marketing budget. They can be replaced.

This is Samsung, folks. They whip out different models by the dozen if they want to. Its not the HW holding them back. Its the SW and they are no SW...
you wouldn't like where I pull the answer out of. 
first, isn't the combined market share of all Android guys larger than Samsung? not that it matters
DED,   I little background that might interest people.   As people are aware Intel has been disperately trying to get into Mobile.  It turns out they are interweaved into what happened to Nokia and Samsung.   Moblin (version 1). Intel created a mobile OS called Moblin  It was effectively a copy of Nokia earlier open source effect with their Nxxx line Mobile Internet devices. Remember N800? It was effectively a stripped down UI based on GTK running on ARM.  Intel...
