Here's a transcript of the phone call:   Tim: Kwon, good to talk to you again.  I want you to know that I really hate litigation.   Kwon: Yes Tim, let's resolve this to our mutual satisfaction.   Tim: Stop making Android phones   Kwon: LOL   Tim: See you in court forever
A free concert ticket to Flo Rida?  Pretty sad you have no product that you can actually give out - all out of Zunes?  
This is bad news - they're actually having to pull out the couches at Google HQ to find the spare change to pay the fine.  
iCloud = Mobile Me 2
Somehow I don't think the Ballmer 8 phone will save Nokia from the abyss.
Exactly, there's are iOS applications called Fing and Snap that give you device connection information (router IP, manufacturer, MAC Address).  However, there is an Android application named Pixie that will allow you to readily capture unencrypted network packets for nefarious purposes, and it's sold on the Google Play Store.  I guess Google loves everything to be "open" 
It's not a matter of hating Microsoft and shilling for one company or the other.  As for Woz, he was commenting about the design of the Microsoft Surface - we're talking Windows 8 here.  Also, my impression of Woz is that he makes every attempt to avoid being perceived as an Apple shill, and so has a tendency to tout the competition (Android, Microsoft, etc.) while being unevenly critical of Apple.  That's fine but I'm certainly not taking his opinions as objective.  
Maybe Sprint could sell more iPhones if they advertised them on their landing page.  Instead they're touting a 'free' Android phone.  
Here's my prediction for the Windows 8 Launch    1.  Windows 8 is released for sale and the tech pundits will hail Microsoft for evolving the OS, deep mobile integration, etc.    2.  Consumers and Enterprise won't listen to the tech pundits, and will scrupulously avoid the Win 8 Metro UI mess.   3.  Realizing that the shilling for Microsoft isn't paying off and to save face, the tech pundits will do an 180 and lambast Ballmer for laying a Windows Vista egg.
That makes sense provided the LTE signal is good and you have an unlimited data cap and  - most don't.  Also, at the airport, there's lot of visitors from outside the country who would have to pay extremely roaming charges and so the free Wi-Fi is used heavily.
