I don't see Apple as a luxury brand. More expensive (upfront) than some competition, but not luxury.   Even then, the cost Apple charges at least for the iPhone is only a part of the cost of using the device. The iPhone cost needs to be compared to the expense of monthly phone charges.    In the past, there have been several comparisons between the upfront cost of out-of-the-box Apple products, with few configuration choices, versus the cost of competitor devices with...
Rockstar would be a patent troll if the patents they bought had no value to the businesses themselves except as used in litigation. However, the Nortel patents have technical value to the likes of Apple, MS, and Google. New inventions extending these patent ideas can be made without concern for the need to license or the need to invent around the patents, to avoid infringement. Trolls don't care about these issues.
Well, this disclosure of lying to their investors about the success of their product line is guaranteed to get them a bevy of investor lawsuits. Whether the information presented here argues against their estimate of damages, really depends on how those damages have been measured. But, I don't see that happening. Apple is arguing that but for Samsung's patent infringement, Samsung's sales today would have been far lower, and that difference constitutes part of Apple's...
There is a problem in Ciderland. Management and staff need to work with their personalities and ensure that all persons understand and control their inner assholes. Sometimes Smarts are difficult to work with, but if they have important assets to contribute, you'd better figure out how to do it. 
They are giving less money to Apple -- its free. If you already have purchased the subscription model for your PC, or for work as an employee, or as university or college student/faculty/staff that has paid for an enterprise-wide license, then the iPad version will cost you nothing, and Apple will get nothing. 
Apple better do something. Could it be their competitors are pushing devices out the door so fast that Apple has to reevaluate their planned offerings? And it doesn't matter at this point how good the competitors' offerings are; they get mindshare and spec-share from just getting something out.    Apple has been promising something big for a couple of years now, and rumor mills have been generating speculative crap non-stop in the interim. Apple is preparing the hardware...
Apple's next product? They desperately need to focus on substantially improving if not perfecting the software products and processes they do have. iBooks is really awful. The syncing between iBooks on iOS and the cloud (ibooks on the mac) performs poorly. One cannot change the info about the iBooks, especially the PDFs one might import. In iBooks (and Kindle and Nook, etc) one cannot have multiple documents (books) open at the same time. Apple's iWork, iBooks Author and...
The video is easily edited to correct the problems Samsung highlights. Most of the video is really not helpful to a juror -- it is filler and can be replaced.   I think the video is poorly done. There are too many scenes showing computers and monitors, keyboards, etc. and they do not add anything to the discussion.    Secondly, the video only discusses utility patents, as it talks about "inventions", and "useful". There are also design patents which are neither...
Battery life will be an issue, so the solutions are going to include new tech for charging. I remember back 40 years ago when a tiny flywheel was used to wind watches. Anything that can generate energy is fair game. Body heat, motion, sweat, induction, piezo-electric, EMR, new battery design (like why can't the watch wristband be the battery?).
When anyone makes a statement, they need to back it up with evidence. Is there any evidence either way regarding the profitability of the Apple TV? I have not seen any. The CEO of ROKU would know what their comparable costs are, especially for the Roku 3. Is he saying Roku is losing money on their device? That is likely. But Roku does not have the supply chain nor bargaining power of Apple. Apple will likely introduce a new Apple TV this year with more functionality than...
