So they have to turn in their law licenses when they're in Congress?  I'm pretty sure it's still totally legitimate to say they are lawyers.  They might be non-practicing, but that doesn't make them "used to be" lawyers. I know I've heard politicians who are also MDs still being called doctors while they were in office.  
 Can anyone with a legal background explain why on earth Judge Cote would be hearing or ruling on Apple's appeal of her judgements?  It seems like black (not racial) comedy to have to appeal unjust decisions to the unjust entity that made those very decisions.  Why wouldn't this appeal automatically go to an appeals court or circuit court?  Presuming that Judge Cote will reject Apple's appeal then it should go to a higher court, but this just delays justice even longer.
 Seriously? China has a population of 13.5 billion people?  And here I was thinking we hadn't quite reached 7 billion on earth.
In the Czech Republic all carriers started a price war over the summer and now they have unlimited talk, text and 1-1.5gb of data for between $30-35. Also when you hit your data limit you get throttled down to 2g speeds, not charged more. It's a pretty sweet deal.
$649 and $549 are the standard pricing, not discounted at all. Did you mean to say that they will be $599 and $499 respectively?
Please just go back to bashing Apple in the comments of non-tech related articles on CNN.com like you were doing yesterday and leave us alone here.  
For the vast majority of those buying Android the answer is and has been only price, either very cheap off contract or free on contract.
This is America vs. America, those people's response would be that she's not favoring anyone.It was when there was Samsung (South Korea) vs Apple (America) that people were claiming she was favoring her ethnicity over her nationality.Whether they were correct or not this is a totally different situation. Surely even you can see that...
Your example is not remotely comparable. It is totally unreasonable to say that a pervert who is physically close to you and is trying (generally) to see you naked body for their sexual gratification is the same as an advertiser who might be tracking your shopping/viewing/location habits on your phone (but never actually seeing you). These separate things are nothing alike. I'm not saying tracking phone usage data is ok, but it's nothing like having a deviant perched...
Please define "innovation."  Please explain who has this if Apple doesn't.   The stock should go up because they are already incredibly profitable, their revenue is increasing and many people think their profits will as well.  Their P/E ratio is tiny compared to Google or Amazon (and much lower than the average on the S&P 500) who I certainly can't see as more innovative (and verifiably much less profitable) than Apple. Do you need more reasons?
