 I'd imagine that the Kindle Fire would represent a large portion of that group. ... but, yes, it just looks sloppy.
 Never mind...
"Adding to the never-ending stream of scuttlebutt surrounding Apple's hyped buyout of Beats Electronics, a report on Tuesday claims the terms of the supposed acquisition have dropped to $3 billion and will be announced this week."   I think the article meant to say, "... dropped by $3 billion..."  har!
 You're such a serious person.
 If Google was able to keep the operating loss tax credits on the books after the deal with Lenovo then, apparently, it would bring the cost down to around $3 billion... which, all in all, would be a fair price for the patents... but not $7 billion. I haven't read anything to date, though, as to whether or not Google was able to keep the tax credits on the books. Meanwhile... $2.91 billion would be a good price to pay for Synaptic.
 What have I started. Forgive me for what I have done...  lol
 Lenovo got Motorola's corpse for $2.91 billion.
 Just had to add another level...
 Another $100-200 million is chump change to Apple. I also don't get the holdup, especially when it's to a "relatively" small company like Synaptics.. Well, maybe Apple will have to buy Synaptics now.
