Woz was busy at the time developing other things for Apple. He simply hadn't the time doing it himself.   And damn! yes he was really brilliant - as an electronic engineer and as a programmer!
  Obviously you never heard about "Double Irish with a Dutch Sandwich". If you don't have a clue stop making dumb statements yourself.
They didn't pay taxes offshore in the first place. Was that fair?   Why do people think Apple is sitting on a mountain of money like Scrooge McDuck?     15.147  U.S. Treasury securities 15.630  U.S. agency securities   4.063  Non-U.S. government securities   0.763  Certificates of deposit and time deposits   0.144  Commercial paper 42.405  Corporate securities   5.398  Municipal securities 13.742  Mortgage- and asset-backed securities   These...
Woz is a nerd (have you ever seen a picture of his work bench?). He wants always the newest features in his toys. All of them at once. I want that too. But I'm not responsible for the operations of a 165 billion $ company. Neither is Woz.

I hope the 'A5X' is a 28nm part from TSMC and this time both Cortex-A9 cores are active.   AnandTech found a S5L8947 mentioned which is most likely a die shrunk 32nm "A5XR2" made by Samsung.
Number of shares was already up to round about 941 Mio. - is now down to 939 Mio.
Exxon Mobile revenues for Q4 2012 should be round about 125 bn $. Revenues for 2012 may reach 480 bn $ and earnings may reach 36 bn $.   Apple's pro forma 2012: 164,6 bn $ revenues and 41,7 bn $ earnings.   Samsung Electronics' numbers: some 188 bn $ revenues and 23,5 bn $ earnings.
  Considering Q4 2012 was one week shorter than Q4 2011 this is good result
