  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!!
  Non-discriminatory means Moto can't discriminate who can access their patents - and must be open to all willing to negotiate/pay.  It says nothing about the rate at which Moto licenses their FRAND patents.  Further, "fair" and "reasonable" don't mean that all customers enjoy the same low royalty rate. 
    In this lawsuit, Apple's argument is not based on "patent exhaustion."  Apple is not denying Moto's rights to collect patent royalties.  What Apple is asking the court to do is to set a low licensing rate for Moto's FRAND patents.    I understand that Moto is being investigated by the FTC for possible anti-trust violation, but that's a completely different matter.
  No,  Infineon or Qualcomm can't dictate how much Motorola charges its own customers.
