    The article says the contract doesn't expire until 2014 - Samsung can't just arbitrarily raise the price when it's already set in stone.  I am guessing the marketwatch.com is really saying that Samsung is no longer offering volume discount for Apple, effectively raising the price of Ax processors by 20%.    This is no news though.  Didn't Samsung also raise the prices of NAND/DRAM - the main reason for which Apple contracted inferior component makers like Hynix, LG,...
  1) There is much to be said about judge Paul Grewal & Koh's integrity.  You just need to look at the number of Samsung's evidence / expert witness denied vs. Apple's; or artificial deadlines set up for Samsung vs. Apple's.     2) The case was never about the iPad (see #22) or any Apple products.  Period.  Therefore, the infamous "cool" comment had no place in the first notice (neither did the US case in August or the Dusseldorf case). 
  1) Well, except that the injunction in Germany had nothing to do with infringement.  Apple's injunction in Germany was based on Germany's esoteric "unfair competition" law.  Judge Birss acknowledged this in this decision:    ...  In Germany the first instance court in Düsseldorf held that the Galaxy tablets infringed the design but on appeal the Düsseldorf Court of Appeal decided there was no infringement. However the German court did grant an injunction on the Samsung...
  Well, not sure if Apple learned anything from this..  I was hoping Apple would go all the way with their bold non-compliance and make a mockery of the UK judicial system.  It would have been fun to watch Tim Cook spend a few nights in the UK prison system.    Just think about all the attention!  all that free marketing bonanza!!   It's a win-win for Apple!!!  /s
    naive?    There is no organized criminals on the scale of Yakuza, Mafia, or Triads in South Korea.  They are still technically at war with the North - with its capital, Seoul, less than 35 miles away from the DMZ - so the military still plays in an important role in maintaining social order.  Likewise, during General Park's administration (1960's - 1970's), most organized criminals were publicly humiliated & purged and, again, during General Chun's 8 years (1980's),...
  hmm.. sounds like it's a paid propaganda from one of Apple's PR firms.  Not that anybody really cares.
    Hmmm.. $640/share sounds a bit too high.  I sold all my shares at $620, but will buy more @$450.    Well, the stock price doubled from Nov 2011 to Sept, 2012, I think that alone is a good reason to expect a correction.    Their tablet market share just dropped from 65% to 50% from previous quarter, according to WSJ (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203347104578103000176188528.html?mod=googlenews_wsj).  While iPad mini and iPhone 5 are selling well, user...
  sounds like my MacBook Pro Retina 15" I just bought (less than a month ago)..   Spent the first two weeks troubleshooting Wifi/Bluetooth prob (which, otw, is all over the web and Apple hasn't fixed), now it crashes every 3-4 days.    Well, I'm not running NASA's Mars Curiosity mission control center or anything, but I try to be brand neutral. To me MacBook Pro Retina is a junk. I guess nothing is perfect. 
  I guess, I should expect TS to remove this post as well?
  Actually they are.  If you haven't yet heard, Samsung Electronic's profit is up almost 100% yoy, in large part, thx to GS III.   LOL!  You are confused. Samsung's largest markets are Europe and Asia, then followed by the American continents. Nokia's main customers basis is in Africa & Latin America.   "..  Hit-or-miss technology industry publication DigiTimes, which is known for having a spotty track record with respect to anonymous sources,.. "   LOL!!
