Soon to be read headline: "Apple sold not a single Apple ][ in the past 20 years. Microsoft, meanwhile, has sold thousands of Windows Phones."
"...values do not include the money invested in research and development of both hardware and software." Samsung should use an off-the-shelf, ready-to-use OS to save money, instead of having to build an OS from scratch.
Not a single story will inevitably be written about wardriving these locks. 
Um. No.
Yes, this should have happened within 3 weeks of tensions starting between Apple and Samsung. Because setting up a foundry and pumping out chips using new designs from a new customer shouldn't take longer than, let's say, 4 weeks. Apple/TSCM could've adopted the Google playbook, releasing a "beta" version of the first batch of chips, then working out the kinks as they went along. Customers would've had dud iPhones/iPods/iPads, but Apple could've come out and said, "Well,...

Looks like an Apple TV, but a quarter of the size. Has an NFC transceiver, connects directly to iTunes. A merchant can set it up with their iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad.

In fact, our developers created a sweet-ass dialog that asks for permission to access your contacts, calendar, etc., but it has the ability to read your mind: By the time we...
There's theory (what Kay's preaching) and there's practice (what real companies are making and what real people are using). Similar arguments are made in the web UI world, where Jakob Nielsen is one the "leaders" in what constitutes proper user interface design in websites. Have you ever seen a Jakob Nielsen-approved website? Neither have I. Some stuff made in a lab, should never leave said lab.
Okay Foxconn employees, this is getting borderline ridiculous now. "Works at Foxconn jumps from roof after Apple fails to launch magenta-colored Lightning cable." This is bordering on Greenpeace/PETA style tactics to gain attention.
Reminds me of the ATF fiasco whereby American guns sold to Mexican cartels are used to shoot Americans/ATF agents. So Google makes Android, which Facebook will use to compete against...Google. Wow, what a great business idea.
