 Do you not remember this? http://allthingsd.com/20120720/google-claims-popularity-has-made-some-apple-patents-de-facto-essentials/
 According to Google, if you create something that could be considered a "fundamental technology", then you should be forced to license it to everyone as a SEP, even if you don't want to declare it as such.
 Why should that cause you any grief? I didn't even realize he showed up until you quoted him. Just add him to your block list like most of us have.
Does this really matter anymore? Apple was more interested in setting an example for everyone that they will pursue anyone who violates their IP. The money never really mattered (even though many tried to imply Apple sues when they can't compete).     Apple has already won the war by creating superior products that people want making them the most valuable tech company on the planet.

Which law is it that they aren't adhering to the spirit of? The universal worldwide tax law? Some other tax law I'm not familiar with?
"exploit legal loopholes"? Quite the definition for a company running their business according to the law. A "loophole" is a poorly worded law such that you can get around the spirit or intent of the law due to some error or technicality in how it's written. A country offering favorable tax breaks for companies in order to attract business is not a loophole.
Bingo. It's a myth propagated by electric car fans that their cars are more reliable and don't need service.For proof you only need to look at aftermarket automobile warranties. What do they cover? All mechanical parts of an engine. In fact, they like to list them all because it sounds impressive to see a very long list of technical sounding items that the warranty will cover you for (most of which never actually fail). What don't they cover (or require you to spend more...
