I think Apple is standing on good principle in defending its IP. Realistically, they don't even have to worry about their patents, they could just adopt a strategy of always staying ahead of everybody and not even worry about all the copycats scrambling behind them, they have the resources to do that for a long time. I know they would like to control what they license and to whom, but the patent trials are at least a way of getting a license payment and acknowledgement ...
Quote of the day!!
Pass the popcorn indeed. You sure sound like a lazy lawyer for Samsung or google .NOBODY will give you those answers. You will have to do your own work lol ...so get to work.
Who the F approved this at Apple.?.? If they intend to use iBeacons in advertising, the suggestion of 'walking through a minefield' is hardly the image they want to convey, lol.
@ mvigod: "Apple's weak buyback stance makes me constantly wonder if they are not as confident in their future as we would hope they are." Perhaps they envision a USE for mega bucks...a large acquisition, buildout, who knows? There are other uses of cash than stock buyouts and finagles. I feel, though, that a lot is in flux right now. So they aren't doing anything that would tie up cash until things shake out. Just my two cents.
Remember when Apple paid 12M for that Swiss watch face design? I think they are making a watch.
Woz has a frontal head injury. So he's a bit like Howard Hughes. Every time he opens his mouth he sounds like a weirdo. It would be good for him if he refrained from speaking.
YES!! Dear Uncle Carlpants!!Ahahahaha! What a coincidence you are related to him..BTW, just curious, who is 'Mr. Smarts' that you keep replying to?
This is conventional thinking. Do you think Apple got where it is by conventional thinking?I'm sure there are better ways to finagle cash than what they are currently doing,but perhaps they are at a crossroads?Suppose they wanted to do something entirely on their own?again? Things that cost 80B to set up?Lots of things come to mind.>>Will they do robotic gaming or medical equipment...or cars? We don't know. And they don't want to tip their hand.Perhaps they know what comes...
Itchy itchy ooo ooo why do they need all that money?It's burning a hole in your pocket now is it?What the hell do you know about what kinds of acquisitions/plans/infrastructure Apple might be budgeting for? All you know is that is too much money not to give you some of it.I think the board probably has a better view of what is coming up than you do. I think they do stuff for a reason. It may look like they are just sitting on that pile o cash to you but, well, we will all...
