Apple doesn't do the wholesale model. Not likely to ever. Agency where paying out is predicated on getting sales is safer.And right now yeah their hands are rather tied cause of the DOJ suit. Until they can get it overturned they are limited in their power to sign new contracts etc.
Or perhaps the lobbyists that Apple needs are the public. 'We the people' can so a lot of damage if folks actually try. Social media etc can be powerful tools. Find a lawyer game to play and file a class action suit or several against Amazon, perhaps even the DOJ (for failing to act against Amazon) and so on. Even if the lawsuits get tossed they are likely to get press. Especially if those that filed start the ball rolling well.
The DOJ claims it went after Apple mainly to help consumers, who were getting 'overcharged' by Thai Apple deal. But where is the DOJ over this kind of game
I've actually seen this issue live and in the flesh. A friend decided to try an Android phone for a few days and then stuck with it for good. He had just flipped the sim over to the phone and didn't wipe his iPhone. He doesn't text a lot so he didn't notice the issue until about a week after that when he'd finally wiped his phone and sold it. We wonder if the issue is that he never signed into his Apple ID. So when he took the sim out his iPhone turned into a kind of...
hardly.  This is typical of the analysts etc. They play this game that a poll will make them look more authoritative. Which it does, until you look at the numbers.  "Investment firm Piper Jaffray surveyed 1,016 U.S. consumers about their smartphone purchase intent over the next three months, and found that 29 percent of those polled" ​Thats the same number of folks that buy an iPhone on launch weekend at a mid level non flagship store. With something like 300 such stores,...
 i don't take it as full authority myself.  What content doesn't Iovine gain them as a special advisor that they don't already have. Probably not that much.The real issue is that the way folks want to interact and pay for content is changing and nothing can really change that. You go with the flow or you lose. The music world already has it figured out that folks don't want to pay per track or even album but want a buffet of content for as cheap as possible
 Because Apple isn't suing to make money. They are suing to get their IP recognized and properly licensed. If Samsung was willing to admit their wrong doing and agree to proper licensing including back payments, Apple would take that.  But Samsung wants it to go to trial to drag it out so that they can make their money and by the time any judgement is rendered that might take something off the market it's already gone. 
While a 4.7 display is more logical than a 5.5 I'm hard pressed to believe a Taiwanese paper sourcing a rumor that a 'local' company is signed on as a supplier. It sounds more like trying to create press and business by name dropping a major company. Any company actually working on a deal with a company as big and privacy crazed as Apple wouldn't be dumb enough to talk about the deal out of fear it could be pulled. Plus with this display going into phones due out in...
 You want to download it now, before the google version is released.
 I think you might be confusing authorizing computers in this. You don't activate devices for purchases in the same way. The only way a device would still be 'activated' is if you didn't erase it before handing it over. Which is a whole other mess
