  I agree.  We can only speculate as to whether he was fired or resigned, and also, if he was fired, if Maps was an issue.  It's easy to imagine that if Cook felt that Forstall was not being fully forthcoming about the quality of Maps at release time, that might have been one of the straws that broke the back.  And as far as being an asshole, just because SJ could get away with it doesn't mean that SF could! 
  I have some doubts about this assertion.  I'm willing to believe they want to sell as many phones as possible, but I'm not convinced they're setting their release schedule with an eye towards quarterly results.  Do you have any evidence to support this argument or is it mostly speculative?
  They're doing the best they can but they're definitely playing defense.  I think they're punch-drunk from what Apple/iPhone have done to them.
Many readers, including myself, care about the competitive field.  I'd feel ignorant if I didn't get a halfway decent look at the new Nokia product.
I stand correct and I appreciate being educated!!
  Very good analogy IMHO.  I wonder if anyone on top of Everest has looked up and seen any kind of bird?  I kind of doubt it.
  Thanks for doing that.  I think today's gain was close to 1.9%, so based on your numbers, I estimate that today's gain was in the top 12% or so.  I think cameronj was saying we have 2% gains in 1 out of every 5 days, i.e. in 20% of the days.  So it seems like he was exaggerating by a factor of 2, but not by an order of magnitude like I suspected.   Thanks again for that spreadsheet magic!
    What's your source for this?  Can you share that with us?
  It's easy to see how people can argue about this.  But to me, the 2% increase is a $12B increase.  Twelve billion dollars kind of sounds like "soaring" to me.  Or from another perspective, my perosnal AAPL holdings went up $30K today, which is 50% of my original investment back in the previous century.  So either way I look at it, 50% or $12B, I think AAPL soared today! 
  But in this case, what does your well-known quote say about a corporation that tries to steal but gets caught and doesn't get away with it?  I suppose Samsung is something less than a good artist and much less than a great artist!
