  Wow. Just wow.   US bashing is clearly in vogue with some. Do you really believe we are all slaves working for nothing 24 hours a day? Or was that just a troll?
  That's reasonable, but they will still have to close earlier. If the government fines them 65,000 euros for an employee is still on the premises at 9:01 then closing at 9:00 won't work. They will have to allow at least half an hour to shoo the employees out to avoid the fine.
  For a one post troll, this is surprisingly to the point.   It is time for Apple to do more than tweak existing products and accumulating cash, and PLEASE, stop fumbling the roll out of those tweaks. I don't expect a new product every year, every other year or even every three years, but the time is ripe for something new.
They could manufacture the phone to explode below a threshold temperature. Canadians would have to buy phone muffs to keep from blowing their hands off.
Will Samsung be forced to take out full page ads to proclaim their agreement with this ruling? Or is that only for Apple?
  This made me think of one model I read about in A History of Engineering and Science in the Bell System 1875-1925. It was one of the first to support automated switching (entering digits to a control system instead of using a human operator). The digits were entered with a single button: you pressed quickly a number of times equal to the digit, pause, another set of pushes for the next digit, pause, etc.   That's sort of humorous from a UI design standpoint in light of...
  I agree. Hopefully they will create something in the near future after three years of tweaking existing products.
  The CEO of VMWare said something similar recently about defections to Amazon's cloud computing. He said they can certainly compete against a "seller of books".   Ahem, whatever.
"...using some of its $137 billion cash pile."   $150 billion projected by the end of March. They need to eventually DO something with that money. How much cash hoard is enough? A quarter trillion? A half trillion?
  That investment and the announced "alliance" buys them access to internal Sharp information: what's in development (work for a customer that may be a Samsung competitor?), product sales, inventory levels (build up for a new Apple product release?), supplier details (upstream companies to interfere with?), etc. That's a great way to keep tabs on a supplier to a competitor.
