Wow, some controversial recommendations there! Apple should stop being the good guy and just steal IP like certain other big tech giants?
But I would question the idea that Apple should even try to make their own baseband chip (honestly or dishonestly). Those of us who have been Apple fans for a while remember past wireless problems in Macs and the iPhone 4. Also, even without that, networking is all standards anyway, so there's not really much room to get ahead.
