    92% of patents that are initially rejected are later upheld. It would take something drastic for that patent (or any of the others) to be invalidated.

    That. May be true but the way that case went down I will be surprised if they pay more than 100 million.

    My point was that whatever the award ends up being it likely won't be rendered worthless by inflation.

    It'll be interesting to see how this pans out. We've heard similar rumors before, and nothing has ever come of it.

    Ya. But I like the rumors on this one. A Motorola Nexus has got to be coming soon.

    I'm not sure he was a scam artist. They obviously were creating a product that was trying to facilitate all types of connectors. Apple denied them due to this situation. I think ti was news worthy considering that Apple has now decided to not be so tight about the rules.

    Read the entire story again. The guy is a scam artist that was trying to get some press for his kick starter competitor.

    Also, apple wasn't 'deciding not to be so tight about the rules'. There were actual technical issues with combining the 30 pin and lightning. Namely, lightning can draw significantly more power than the 30 pin, which can create issues if you have multiple lightning or 30 pin devices plugged in all at the same time. Then there's also the questions the guy has failed to answer, like why he didn't just make it a USB device with ports instead of having cables built in.

    The guy had no intention of ever building this. He was using the press to promote his rival product.

    This is very interesting. Looks like price is becoming an issue for Apple. I have never seen them go down to $0 on a new contract before on a new device. In Canada they get lower and you could get any Android phone for free but Apple is always around $79-$150 on a new 3 year contract.

    I think it has more to do with retailers being more aggressive. Apple still makes the same amount of money either way, so best buy is the one that'll eat the costs.

    That is where u are wrong. You think Best buy is eating $150 on the iphone on top of what they normally pay? That's not the way it works. They may choose to drop the price $50 here or there but there isn't $150 to eat.

    Absolutely they are, either through a deal with the carrier or on their own. Apple does not have any part of that discount. (Best buy might ask if its okay, but they may not have to) Once apple sells that product to best buy, or in this case the company best buy works with for mobile device fulfillment, they have their money and they're out of the equation.

    And you know this because? I worked in large retail for years and almost always the supplier is connected to the discount based on volume. Especially on this large of a discount.

    In this case apple isn't the direct supplier though. Best buys mobile supplier would be.
