Sort of like all those movies you act in Bruce ... we all pay, but we don't own them.
"NCKU claims it has suffered monetary damages"   Step 1: Attract students to university and charge high tuition paid for by parents and government backed loans paid for by taxpayers Step 2: Let students invent things Step 3: Hire lawyers to file patents Step 4: Wait for successful company to actually build a real product that purports to use that patent Step 5: Hire more lawyers to check potential patent infringement Step 6: Claim "damages" including above...
"Gigaom that he believes its "really tough" for smaller, independent application developers to be discovered in the current App Store structure"   Really?  Thank you Captain Obvious for that penetrating research and analysis.    There is only so much physical screen space to display apps in the store, and it's hardly effective to cycle through 600,000 apps in some sort of rotation.    The App store is not only method to promote one's app.  
I'll say it again ... this is Zune II  
"I feel like they've noticed that Apple doesn't enter a market with every feature possible ..."   Amazingly though, Apple actually has a real product when they announce it.   I have a feeling Surface will be Zune II.  If a hundred other manufactures can't get it right, why does Microsoft think they can?  
PC makers are correct ...the iPad is delaying purchases of Apple notebooks.  What's a PC maker to do?  
So dozens upon dozens of Wintel hardware manufacturers are unable to compete ... and now MS, builder of mice expects to be able to build a device to compete?  This, I want to see.

Eliminate two thirds of the crap you sell, and reduce the size of your stores. Do you really need to offer 9 models of a dishwasher? Do you think that offering 30 digital cameras is a great idea? How about stock the top three sellers and dispense with the others. Give me a break. The iPad is very least of your problems. Best Buy is living in the last century like most big box retailers.
Poor carriers ... they really have it bad. Verizon did a $106 billion in revenue last year and a $10 billion dollar profit. Poor Verizon. Apple should just consume Sprint and offer their own network to customers, and let's see what Verizon and ATT do.
