 Sure, the rumor has been around for at least 3-4 years now; with no confirmation with Apple or TSMC. Yes, Apple took a large stake in ARM Ltd in the early 90's under Scully, but Jobs sold them all for a huge loss in 1998 after his return. Intrinsity was an independent company who developed low-power/high-performance technology, most notable for F14.  The ARM SOCs used in the first two generations of Apple iPhones were vanilla Samsung SOCs -- the A4 was the first SOC...
 No, Samsung is the only manufacturer Apple relies on ARM chips.  Apple initially used PortalPlayer's ARM chips in earlier iPod, but switched to Samsung's custom ARM based SOC's since 2006.  Samsung collaborated with Intrinsity go beyond 1Ghz in 2010. No, there is absolutely no need to go 64bit on mobile ends.  It makes sense however for Samsung to develop 64bit since they already make laptops powered by ARM chips. No, you absolutely have no idea what you are talking about. 
 Yes, along with rectangle, rounded corners.  Jon Ive hard at work.  Some deranged souls here also believe that Apple "MADE" PowerPC. 
 because there was no smartphones with 8TB of memory or storage? and won't be for some foreseeable time?  
 there is no set punishment for SEP infringement. In fact, contrary to Apple's claims, there is nothing preventing/discouraging SEP holders from seeking injunctive relief. 
 Well, didn't realize that Apple invented the share buyback program. /s  At least Apple is consistent in taking credit for stuff they didn't invent. 
  Ever heard of BestBuy's iPhone 4 BOGO?  If Apple makes only premium products,  what's with the iPhone 5C?   No doubt, Apple's innovative marketing is second to none, but Apple is really a second-class tech company.  I have yet to see a original/breakthrough tech from Apple.
  Considering that Samsung's smartphone marketshare was in a single digit in 2011 -- and I'm guessing most smartphone buyers upgrade their phones every 2 years or so -- most Android switches probably came from HTC / Moto other than Samsung.   Yep, ironically, Apple increased the size of iPhone display from 3.5" to 4" to meet the changing needs of smartphone users during this period.
  Apple is effectively a too-big-to-fail and the gov't will do whatever it can do to protect the company.   Wish I had bought it when it was sub-$400.
