Lawsuits where Motorola demands excessive fees for standard-essential patents are pretty evil - Motorola has lost them all, and has been threatened with penalties by the European Union and the Justice Department over its tactics.
Wow - way to slam everybody. Why so bitter? The fact is, tech workers were screwed by Apple, Google, etc. There's no doubt about that - some workers were screwed royally, particularly the ones Google was going after (until Jobs put a stop to it). The problem is, as you say, there's no way of knowing how many workers would have been recruited by the other companies, or which workers were in demand. So there's no way to come up with a fair settlement - in an ideal world,...
I know nothing about Dre, and have no problem with Apple hiring him. I also have no problem with the Beats acquisition - I have no idea why Apple bought them, and what will come of it. It could be a great business decision. I just hope he has a much different job at Apple - leave the sound design to others.
Wasn't Scott Forstall supposed to be the next Steve Jobs?
That statement, however, is depressing, and doesn't inspire confidence that Apple will produce anthing with high-quality sound.
I totally agree. It's nice that you can block website data in addition to cookies (you can't in Snow Leopard's Safari), and it's also nice you can just allow cookies from the current website, but that's worthless if you can't still block 3rd party cookies. Hopefully there'll be a lot of feedback on this, and it will be changed. There should be a separate button to block 3rd party cookies, so you can leave it selected no matter what other cookies you allow. 
Sounds like you don't realize that Apple's laying the software foundation for some great future products, probably this fall.
That's creepy, and why I've never had a Google account. I've used Bing for quite a while now, and I have no problem at all with the search results.
So don't switch. Wow, that was easy. You could have saved all your ranting for something else.
 Aren't you missing the point? It has nothing to do with the relative merits of NeXT vs. Beats. It's only mentioning that when Apple acquired NeXT, Apple's very existence was on the line - it spent 15% of the entire worth of Apple on NeXT. Apple was crumbling at that point, and bet it all on Steve Jobs and a radically new operating system. Big risk, but big reward. The Beats buy, on the other hand, is merely a blip in Apple's finances. That's all the article says.
