Yeah I do think it would be worth it just to keep a competitor like Google from swooping in. But if Apple is already thinking way beyond what Square is doing I hope we hear about it at WWDC. It's getting a little frustrating hearing rumors about all the things Apple is thinking about but not actually doing. I keep waiting for the thinking to become doing.
Maybe it's not so much what Apple is getting as keeping them from being swooped up by Google. I wouldn't mind having Jack Dorsey at Apple to provide some strategic thinking/vision. I'd rather have Dorsey working for Apple than Google, that's for sure.
Wait, so earlier this year Cook made a point of saying a high dollar acquisition is not off the table; Jack Dorsey would rather be scooped up by Apple (because he thinks Square more aligns with Apple's design aesthetic and values) but yet Apple has soured on the deal? Apple would be crazy not to acquire Square, especially with Cook suggesting one of the reasons for Touch ID was getting into the mobile payments space.

I wish that were the case, but I think its pretty clear that Samsung has sold a lot of their Galaxy S and Note flagship devices over the past 2-3 years.

How can someone clone something that doesn't exist? Unless Samsung will be cloning themselves as they already have wearable devices on the market.
But this trial isn't about design patents is it? I thought that was the last trial (that Apple won).
Wait, so it's not Google (Android) that stole, but Samsung?
Now we know why Samsung is going after the marketing angle and focusing so much of their attention on Phil Schiller. They want the jury to think Apple really believed it was Samsung's products and advertising that was the reason for lost iPhone sales, not patent infringement.
On an iMore podcast once Rene Ritchie was talking about sensors and all the potentials (one example he gave was your TV automatically changing to a specific channel at a specific time on a certain night based on prior viewing habits) and it actually was freaking me out. Basically in his sensor driven universe you'd never be able to switch off or disconnect. It reminded me of a mother overly fussing with a sick child when the child just wants to be left alone to sleep. In...
yes. Quite honestly this whole internet of things and sensor mania seems to be getting out of control. Like refrigerators that know when you're out of something and automatically reorder it for you and have it sent to your house. I'm not interested in a Jetsons like universe.
