Because Apple doesn't own the trademark for "Android" or "Samsung".  They would be sued and swiftly lose, just as any other cybersquatter would.
 Um, this might be news to Tim Cook:  http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-ceo-tim-cook-on-the-nsa-2014-1
Well, that is the first time I've ever heard any kind of date, so there is that, but... the end of the year?!?  That's even after the October EMV deadline (which they already support - I have a Discover card with an EMV chip in it).  Oh well, as I've said... I've moved on.
There is not. Citi® Double Cash Card
Discover has mostly lost me as a customer over this.  I used to charge *everything* to that card, then just pay it at the end of the month for the cash back.  After a couple of months of the repetitious "we're talking to Apple" runaround, I started card shopping and found Citi's Double Cash card, which supports ApplePay and has 2% cash back on everything instead of Discover's 1%.  Now I use Citi's card for almost everything, and only use the Discover for the 5%...

 I've been seeing a LOT of television commercials for ApplePay in the last few weeks by credit card companies.  I'm sure Apple had a part in that.
Birdies (and Spaceship 1) fall nose-first because of their aerodynamic design, not because of the heavy nose.  If you dropped a birdie on the moon, it wouldn't fall in any particular orientation.  The shifting/spinning weight inside the phone would rotate the phone via conservation of momentum and angular momentum. This can be easily tested.  Tape a couple of metal washers to the back of a relatively light and thin, but firm object (probably best not to use an actual phone...
