  Because you don't understand how markets work?   Dell is saying that they are going to buy investors' shares from them, likely at a premium.  Hence the price increase.  Apple can't afford to buy back all their outstanding shares because the company is worth so much more.  
Keep in mind TSMC also has Qualcomm and Nvidia as customers.  Qualcomm ships alot of chips, and they've been 28 nm for quite some time (Krait).  Even most of the US bound Samsung S3s have Qualcomm krait chips, as do most of HTC's lineup.  
Um, no...
  The rest of the market doesn't have the market cap that Apple does.  If you compare the next largest company (Exxon-Mobil), Apple's P/E ratio is actually higher.     Also, P/E isn't all that matters, especially not for mega-cap stocks.

  Android isn't licenced under the GNU GPL.  The modifications they made to the Linux kernel were of course released under the GPL (and eventually reincorporated into the kernel as of version 3.7), but the user space, which consists of the Dalvik VM and other Java bits, is licenced under the Apache licence, which doesn't require anyone to open source any bits if they don't want to.    http://source.android.com/source/licenses.html   Google has abided by all the licencing...
When Larry Page is talking about innovation, he's probably talking about things like Google Earth, Maps, and Books back in the day, and more recently Project Glass, the self-driving car, and their fiber network.    Stuff like Android originally wasn't originally developed by Google, they bought Android.    Let's face it, Google has evolved far beyond a search engine, and stuff like Project Glass and the self-driving car are more than a little innovative...  Who...
  First off, does whoever made this picture realize that the phone on the right isn't a Windows phone, but actually an HTC Android phone?  Second, there's already been several phones out there (including Android phones) to make use of fingerprint scanners...
