Al Gore got the option to buy the shares 10 years back at the then price. That was the strategy. What apple can do now is that they can buy the shares at today's price.   The $10B repurchase is just to nullify dilution they do by issuing new shares.
That's always been their style of working. Just that it is affecting apple now.

If intel could fabricate chips for apple, we could expect dramatic performance and battery life improvements
Performance improvement is about the square of the ratio of the transistor sizes. So here (32/28)^2 = 30%
