  Please tell me that you were being sarcastic when you wrote this reply. We at least should have some ground rules for the friendly banter.
  Good catch. My memory failed me from what was said during the last earnings call. Here is the actual quote from Tim Cook:       I remembered it backwards. What I can't quite interpret from his reference to "1 million units" if he was referring to total iPad units, just iPad 2, or just the new iPad.
I'm suspicious about Apple releasing different form factors in the same family at different times, at least so close together. For example, releasing an updated 21.5 inch iMac and then the 27 inch one month later? That makes no sense   What does make sense is Apple changing every device using the 30 pin connector over to the new 9 pin in as short a time as possible. Holiday sales of new accessories will be icing on the cake of another blowout financial performance.
Bluetooth and WiFi come together, as pretty much all available Broadcom silicon from for one includes the other. And Apple has pretty clearly moved completely to Broadcom for their wireless radios.
As the iPad 2 is still outselling the new iPad, and seems to be critical in the education market, I don't foresee Apple dropping that form factor at that price point. Who knows what they'll do in regards to the connector, though.
There are many women in their 50s sitting in bars right now who would snap a leopard print iPhone up.
I don't think Apple will suddenly become stupid when it comes to their sourcing practices. Among the many skills they seem to have institutionalized, supply chain management is probably the top one (even higher than product design, in my view). A billion dollars is so significant to Samsung, and most likely the final figure is not going to be a cash transfer but instead covered through credits or discounts on other transactions.
This. Apple is a business, and Samsung will probably continue to have a significant role to play as a component supplier. It's much more likely that, within a few months, both parties will find a way to wrap up the litigation related issues and move on from it.
A directed verdict is a highly unusual move from a judge except in the most extreme circumstances. While it's always possible, I wouldn't bet on it happening merely because there's evidence that the jury was confused about Apple's legal rights for an unregistered versus a registered product. In light of the fact that Apple pretty much won everything else (and the Galaxy Tab's sales have been dismal), it would be hard to see Judge Koh making that change.
  You're suggesting that a revolutionary car will not require a powerplant? Exactly how would the car move? Fairy magic?
