 With 513,000 in the settlement class, that's $2.59 each. With some of the money going to "administrative costs", it's even less. Even assuming only 35% of the class fills out the paperwork and actually applies, that's still going to be only about $7 each. "Full refunds are not guaranteed" - you think?
It would be great if it were like Spaces (in Snow Leopard). I use the app TotalSpaces2 to almost duplicate what Spaces was like.
Keep hoping - it ain't going to happen. Apple will end up owing very little, probably nothing, for these obvious patents, which could very well be declared invalid - they're so general as to be ridiculous. Please enlighten us on exactly how Apple is abusing the patent system in the same way. Apple has patented a lot of ideas they haven't used (yet), but they haven't sued anyone over them. Their lawsuits have been over tangible products. Sorry your Apple-hatred has eaten...
Yeah, and when you sell a CD through a record store, the store takes 50%. Have you filed a complaint about that also?
It used to be that when someone worked for a Japanese company, they were there for life, and the company was loyal to the worker also. It's a different world now.
Don't worry about it - size doesn't matter.
You might have a point if 90% of ads weren't dancing toilet paper rolls or singing fudge bars.
Obviously, not so obviously.
Sometimes they pay a lot less than what is "legally" possible. Hopefully that's not the case with Apple in Ireland.
They are investigating. IF these companies followed the law, they won't be fined, even if they took advantage of loopholes. However, the government absolutely should investigate whether laws were broken, and whether certain loopoholes should be closed. Just like in the U.S., when huge corporations get out of paying taxes, it needs to be investigated, and the loopholes closed.
