No they can file an appeal right now.
They certainly can appeal this to United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  This is not over by a long shot.  They can do this even if Obama does not veto it.
Or how about this apple patent that actually is for a wrap around display iPhone that was just patented   http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2013/03/stunning-future-iphone-with-wraparound-display-revealed.html
No shortly after buying authentec  apple announced to current customers including samsung that after a certain date that the they would no longer support or build sensors for any of the old customers and that the tech would specifically be for apples use.   See this article  http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/09/24/authentec_to_reportedly_ditch_non_apple_customers_in_2013
No cutting off a finger wont work.  If you go to Authentec's website they explain that the sensor has to have live tissue to work, because it scans the surface of the skin as well as below the skin.  It cant be fooled by a dead finger or gelatine   It is indeed a true biometric sensor.  The tech behind is is really pretty cool.
But Android is OPEN¡/s
30% cut for anything sold through iTunes.  Music, Movies, Apps, and Books all give Apple 30%.  iTunes was started as a break even proposal but has become so large that it is making a ton of money now.  YoY profit of 2 billion. Here is a great article from Horace Dediu at Asymco.  http://www.asymco.com/2013/03/22/so-long-break-even/
Spot On.
There seems to be a lot of confusion here.  iTunes there version for windows 7 still runs on windows 8 in the desktop so the revenue stream is still there. Just not in the metro ui.  Apple will not port iTunes to the metro ui because it will help sell surface tablets.  And even if that is not the full reason it would be a huge waste of time for apple to port it to touch interface and make two versions that would have to be built for windows.  I doubt that it will ever...
They already did under sculley/amellio, and damn near ruined apple by allowing clone companies to run mac os.  No thanks.  iCloud is a feature on iOS not amazon and not droids. They can build there own.  The first thing Jobs did during his comeback was to kill clones.  It was an extremely good thing too.
