Dumbest idea I've seen in a while.
Oh I agree. There's money to be made just in share volumes... but as we've seen from a profit standpoint it always makes sense to go for the more lucrative market first and make something awesome that lasts. I believe that's in Apple's DNA and they will probably continue to reduce cost for markets as they see fit.  I don't think Apple is worried about losing marketshare. Most of these users start with Android, realize it's crap and upgrade. Apple will continue to make that...
No, the Apple products just plain continue to work. I am a developer and we have users still using their iPad 1 just fine.  This isn't just a game or some stupid app, but one used in live performance/mission critical applications.  There's no reason to upgrade if it just plain works (and that sucker is built like a tank).  Apple releases regular iOS updates that 95% of devices can install which means they can continue to use the same apps.  In the meantime, most of Android...
Use the cloud. Problem solved.  Unless you are a video professional, you probably don't need GB of videos sitting around all the time.
Why are they not in the search business? Maybe they have ethics.   Anyone can see they copied the ideas behind the iPhone. Exact copy? No, however some manufacturers have made their offerings very similar to Apple. Take a look at nearly every camera app on an Android device. They almost all look like Apple's. Cue the "but that's the only way to do a camera app" argument. Sure, because Apple had invented the "ideal". Rubber banding and multitouch... patents that were...
Google stole Apple's ideas. Period. The iPhone was the first multitouch device and had an intuitive user interface. Apple did this and Google copied. These cases have proven that. It's Google's problem for stealing ideas and then giving them away to everyone, diminishing Apple's market share. I hope they are required to pay royalties for every infringing device on the market.
I have the original Macbook Pro Retina 15" and had to send it in for repairs to the screen. Because I need a computer to continue to work, my company purchased a replacement 2013 Macbook Air 13".  Apple fixed the 15" rMBP, but I still use the Macbook Air and love it.  It's slower on somethings (Photoshop and video editing are most noticeable), but otherwise, this thing is awesome.  The battery lasts FOREVER. OK, maybe not actually forever, but the whole work day is not...
Let the courts decide who owns what.   By the way, has it been determined if they are seeking damages and if so how much? A patent troll tends to use their patents purely for financial gain whereas the consortium may simply desire the offending intellectual property to be removed.  If a company has been using stolen property to create an unfair advantage over competitors, then it needs to be addressed.  Google had the chance to purchase this property and let it drop....
If you own intellectual property and you don't enforce it, you stand to lose it. In other words, it has less to do with if they are slime or not and more to do with the fact that they need to enforce what they own.  It's like if you own a piece of property and you neglect it and someone else comes and builds a house on it.  They can claim squatter's rights (in some countries) since the owner was not defending the property. Rockstar is asserting their ownership of the...
No, they purchased the patents fair and square. They are simply asserting the patent rights that Nortel couldn't due to bankrupcy. They are also asserting other intellectual property that Google and these manufacturers are infringing on a wholesale, global level.
