GE got its allocation way back in the mists of time. Around the time that Multics was still around and this new thing called "Unix" was coming along. GE was heavily involved, as was BBN.
 Some companies "got" the Internet earlier than others. 
 Some companies think ahead ! But guess who has the first Class A. And has wasted it ?? What a shame.
This is a new product line for Microsoft. NEW NEW !! Just Released !!   iPad Kickstand !!!   NEW  NEW !! Too funny.
 As far as we know, the correct number is ZERO. Zilch. Apple does indeed provide hardware and support but does NOT pay for placement. As far as we know.
As far as we know, Apple does provide equipment and support (setup etc etc) but does NOT pay for placement.  And you're right - there are lots of them.
Well maybe. But I guess that they couldn't find any other way to prevent Apple Pay. After all, neither CVS not Rite-Aid did anything to enable it - it "just worked". So even though PayPass/payWave had been grandfathered (it seems), they felt that they couldn't continue to have Apple Pay work. Or something like that. Whatever it was, it was dumb. Still is.
Look at it another way. When you bring the money back to the U.S. you get your original payment back (not in reality, but as a credit) and then pay just the U.S. tax.  So you're not paying full-rate tax twice, which is most people understand by the term "double taxation". Note that this DOES occur in some situations but not in this one. Here you pay no more, but no less, than if the money had come directly.
Sort of. It was "subject to tax" but in a place where the tax rate was zero. So there has not been a tax payment on it, but it has been "taxed" because it was subject to tax. A subtle point but one much loved by corporate tax advisers.
Not quite. It was the cooperation between Apple and some publishers to RAISE the pricing of e-books.
