  Well, if one of Apple's rivals offers a product in the iPad's genre for sale, it's de facto an iPad competitor. That doesn't assure it any success, though, as many have found out the hard way.
A campaign this coordinated is not the result of a cabal of corrupt officials who are miffed that they didn't get their cut. For all we know, some high-ranking officials may have asked Mr. Cook for a consideration a while ago which he declined to give. Perhaps this is to bolster the negotiating positions of Chinese telecoms in iPhone negotiations. Apple could even be the pawn in a quiet, back-room disagreement between China and the U.S. They simply aren't telling the...

Mr. Einhorn:     Thank you for your interest in furthering my "shareholder value" by attempting to extort Apple Inc. to issue preferred shares to you, your cronies and your clients. Please be informed that I view the value of my shares in Apple to be derived from the continued good performance of management, which I believe to be reflected in the company's earning more money than it knows what to do with. I shall not be voting my shares in favor of any proposal...
  All in favor of the petition, but can someone say skewed view of society? I have travelled internationally, as have many of my friends and relatives, but I would wager a mathematical majority of my acquaintances have not. Of those who have, it is a rare occasion. This isn't a reason to tout unlocking phone hardware: basic fairness and use of one's own property are.   All this may sound petty, but the argument will not resonate with many millions of Americans when they...
  Well, let's see.... I was late to buy shares in the game (didn't really have money for stock when Apple was trading at $15), but my li'l bloc is already worth 500% of my initial investment (even with the latest hit). I'm not feeling slighted by management.
  ...the current discount ... factorS in...   Subject-verb agreement is 2nd-grade. Accuracy=credibility.   (Not that this seems to apply to analysts, of course.)
  ...given the effect....   It's not so basic as deer and dear, but it's close.
  Yes, but,...     If I have two businesses which together turn a $500 profit, that $500 is 100 percent of my business earnings. Business A's $1,000 is 100 percent of its profits, but this is the result of a different measure. I understand perfectly the theory behind the 103 percent number; I merely question the value of the methodology. I'd suggest using actual words in reporting such a story, such as:   The mobile phone manufacturing industry made a profit in 2012 only...
