  I wouldn't trust this number for Amazon or for Apple.  It appears that all they did was divide Amazon's 2012 total revenue of $61 billion by the 200 million accounts to come up with $305 revenue per account.  This presumes that ever dollar of revenue was generated only by these accounts which isn't the case.  Amazon has quite a significant business as a cloud computing solution and who knows what other revenue sources that also wouldn't come from these user accounts....
  A two business day delay in coming out with their decision means Apple is likely to be found to have infringed?  I don't get that.  And you know this how?   It's like your inside the rooms where they're deliberating with all this inside knowledge you seem to have about the decisions and ramifications of those decisions that they're dealing with.  Why don't you just hook us up with the recordings or video.  No reason to hold out on us now is there?
How is it like that even remotely? The American sacrifices over the last hundred years for France are as I said "innumerably" greater than the French contribution in the American Revolutionary War. How is that like taking your mother to McDonalds?
Um, the headline does not imply in any way that Apple products are the only ones being taxed. This is an Applecentric website and this could make Apple products more expensive in France. They've had way more bogus headlines on this site and on every other tech site...
I'm pretty sure that has been repaid innumerable times over in both lives and gold during WWI, WWII, and the Marshal Plan and you can consistently see how ungrateful they are for the much more recent rescuing...
You're right, but a better way to have asked your initial question would have been to say "So is your view..."  rather than "So your view is..."  then it would be clearly a question even without the punctuation mark.  People mis-read stuff all the time, better to take away as many barriers to understanding as possible.
  AI has been quoting Gene Munster regularly for years.  Maybe it's all be garbage, but it's kind of strange to start complaining about it on this particular article which doesn't seem to be any worse than other recent predictions from him that resulted in articles on this site.
  There may not be many businesses that use it, but some that do have seen huge adoption rates.  The MLB stadiums that accept Passbook even at the end of last season were seeing 10% of fans coming to baseball games were using Passbook.  In some stadiums that would mean 4,000+ tickets per game using Passbook.  I believe American Airlines also saw incredibly high rates of adoption last year.  Since that time I haven't heard any statistics one way or the other (maybe that is...
As someone else living in Europe I wish more apps took advantage of Passbook, but I don't blame Apple for companies not doing so. 
  I thought those 10 suicides in 2009 and 2010 were because Foxconn had comparatively amazing death benefits and employees felt their families were better off financially if they died than if they lived and worked.  That seems a lot different than killing yourself to draw attention to working conditions and wages.
