when the nexus 4 is sitting at $299 base price at tmobile and the iphone is sitting at $650+ base price, it starts to show up in the bill,    The difference is buying a $299 phone outright and paying $30 a month, buying a phone a $299 for $200 base price and paying maybe $35 a month, buying a $650 outright iphone and paying 30 a month or buying a $650 iphone for $200 and paying $50 a month. 
Apple's profit margins are dropping, due to being forced by competitors.    Google and Amazon are very scary to Apple's bottom line because they don't give a crap about hardware profits. Google would put a nexus 7 in every cereal box if it could.    Nexus 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle fire HD, ect.. are all about getting people to buy more stuff and looking at ads.    But by far the biggest threat to Apple is the Telecom Subsidy economy going bust in...

If that model works, and gets adopted by other carries Apple is screwed. Mid range Android phones and High range android...
Most of the samsung case was about design patents, not software patents. And the few software patents that Apple did charge samsung with, two of them have been pre-invalidated and most of them don't even exist in other countries outside the U.S. SO you should stop lying, and try better reading comprehension. We are dealing with software patents here not rounded shapes and corners, which is another issue into itself. 
You stated that android is not open source at all? didnt you?
So whats the cut off point. answer the question. What percentage do you need to be to be considered open source?
So whats the cutoff point to being open. 23% is enough for amazon and baido to fork android.    So whats the cutoff point?   23% is also enough for me to go and download the source code and do whatever, WHATEVER I WANT with it. 
Was open enough for amazon.    Part of being in the Open handset alliance means rules. You want use android however you please leave the alliance its simple as that. Just because android is controlled somewhat does not mean its not open.    I think this comment says it best.    "So...just how open does a platform need to be considered open? Clearly Amazon had no problem with Android's supposed 23% "openness" when it used and altered Android source code (at will and at no...
but it is its 23% open source lol. Android is open source, it happens to be more controlled open source, as that article points put there are different levels of open source and Android makes the list.
