AFAIK, the only person saying that Google was going to dump Android for Chrome was DED in an editorial on AI.  Do a Google for 'google dumping android for chrome' and the only relevant articles refer back to DED's piece, which was, unsurprisingly, light on any actual evidence for his claims.
Isn't that the way apps already work?  If I'm in Word and go to the Open dialog, I can only see .doc files unless you change the file type option.  If I'm in Photoshop, I can only see .psd.  I'm not disagreeing with your general viewpoint, but that particular gripe doesn't seem to be valid.
Are you accusing US judges of taking backhanders from Samsung?  That's a very serious accusation.  I assume you have evidence to back that up, care to share it?
Kenya may be ranked as a third world country, but their politicians are some of the best paid in the world. http://www.capitalfm.co.ke/business/2013/10/infographic-kenyan-mps-salary-compared-with-the-world/http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/Kenya-MPs-come-second-in-global-salary-ranking-/-/539546/1924534/-/24knfiz/-/index.html So this deal is worth slightly less than the annual salary for two MPs.
Perhaps you could point to where on this page Apple have a trademark for Newsstand? No, didn't think so.
No-one's mentioned yet that Amazon also have a Newsstand service which I believe was launched at about the same time as Apple's.  Given that Apple haven't kicked up a fuss over that, I think the chances of them taking on Google over the name are slim to none.
Yeah, not sure about USB devices so you may well be right.   Although Maestro64 stated that phones could be counted in activations multiple times which is not correct.
I'm not sure that's true any more is it?  I think Google counts an activation when a device connects to the Play Store and is identified by a unique device ID which never changes, so a phone being wiped and reactivated would only count as a single activation.
No, I don't see anything wrong with that.  Every single one of Samsung's component customers know that Samsung competes with them in the consumer sector.  If they then choose to continue to use Samsung as a supplier, how is that Samsung's fault?  All of their customers have a choice, if they don't like it use a different supplier.  Its called a free market.
And who, exactly, has the authority to tell Samsung what they can/can't make?  Its Apple's decision to continue to have components manufactured by Samsung, no-one's forcing them.  If they don't like it, they can go and find someone else to do it.  If they can't find anyone else who can manufacture to the quality/quantity required, then that's unfortunate but a pill they have to swallow.
