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...
Doesn't the in-app purchase to edit give Apple 30%? That's what I see for the iPad version? There are three application from MS. I would expect one would have to pay the $99.99 for only one application, and the license would apply to the other two. Right?
Seems like Office 365 is free for home use. For business use, it'll cost.
What would they do with him staying? I suppose they could sabotage his work at Apple by forcing him to attend BBRY meetings where confidential trade secret ideas are discussed so that his NDA would forbid him from working on similar projects at Apple. An interesting idea -- make your employees worthless to outside companies.
