Did anyone really believe it was so easy to just jack prices on a signed contract?
  Give it time ....   http://www.politics.co.uk/news/2012/10/15/may-s-surprise-attack-uk-to-opt-out-of-130-eu-laws
Apple makes and enforces the (sometimes arbitrary) rules as to what gets included in the App Store, so shouldn't they bear the responsibility for this?
 
  I heard from someone who heard from someone else that Forstall's ousting has been on the cards since 1874. Trust me, I'm a blogger.
  That's always a good start.    Whenever this statement appears, forum readers are immediately separated into two camps:   Those who don't believe you. Those who don't care.  
  Yup, there is. That was part of the reason behind the massive share buyback that Cook announced last year.   http://www.asymco.com/2012/03/20/tim-cooks-latest-promise-to-apples-employees/   That's cash AND stock.
  This is no change at all in Apple's stance. They have always sought to negotiate terms with the Android manufacturers and Microsoft, so this is not much of a surprise. My guess is that as well as the license fee, HTC has also agreed not to copy Apple designs in the future (not that they were doing that anyway).
  Right, I'm not explaining myself very well.   The Android phone makers who also make Windows PCs will happily pay the Android fee and agree to disable the features that Microsoft tells them to, to protect the price of their Windows license.   MS cannot force companies to use their phone software, but there's nothing stopping them from hiking the fees to the likes of Samsung who don't agree to pay the Android fees.
  People who say otherwise are geeks most probably.   Normal consumers don't want to think that their phone is out of date six months after they signed a two year contract on it.
