They received a discount from the first unit. As is common in volume purchase contracts done over time, you have to actually reach a certain purchase level to obtain the best price.
 The only possible way Apple would or could go private is if they really started hurting, sort of like how the whole Dell going private scenario occurred.
Since GTA's business had already tanked before GTA signed the deal with Apple, this 'lack' of performance payout seems ridiculous and shouldn't be allowed.
I'd like to see evidence of the supposed gift giving precedents you mention.
Obviously they can be cut. Did you really think Apple was going to use a 500lb. boule for a single product? 
Best and most appropriate line in the entire article.
If we don't fight to maintain what little privacy we have left, then we don't deserve to have privacy.
Pure BS! What other deals did they pass up? Any company, even Apple, can't just change the terms of a signed contract at will. Without the Apple deal GTAT basically had no business as their business had already tanked prior to signing the contract agreement with Apple.
Hmm, lets think about this one. Would the TV station be more apt to do this segment on its' own, or do you think Apple SVP Eddy Cue might be preferable? Who knows, maybe Apple even volunteered or 'suggested' this?
I am an avid iPhone and Mac user but I totally disagree with you on this one. i86 and Windows may not be as important as they once were but that market, by any measurement, can not be classified as an extremely small market.
