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.
