Hope you all sold the stock cause he's dead Jim.

I suspect the 5 announcement was delayed for this very reason. I find myself oddly sad over this, now that its happened. few people have had a greater impact on a culture.

I thought Apple stock would decline after the death of Steve Jobs, too.

The stock has gained about 48% since the first of the year.

Note to self. Apple stock over $600 per share. Rob recommended to dump at $300 per share. Do the exact opposite of any recommendations to become rich.

2nd note to self. I love old threads where people make specific predictions. :D

A couple of folks I know who went to Apple at the 2002 AT&T Labs Diaspora have retired as millionaires. And that because Mr. Lister was Rob Wrong.

You would have have missed out on a whole lot of upside if you had dumped it on Jan. 18, 2011. It's up about 88% since then.

If they keep pissing off Samsung it will end badly for them.

I don't get suing the company that provides a good deal of your parts, including the processor, but Samsung is still profiting from Apple's purchases for now.

Yeah, because that worked well in the past.

With the Apple victory in California, Samsung's going to renegotiate their contract with Apple. What this means..is that Apple users are going to pay even more for their iThings in the future, that they already pay an arm and a leg for.

Apple is trying to corner the market here and eventually the anti monopoly laws will bite them in the ass.

Apple just had the most profitable quarter of any company ever

18 billion dollars in 3 months. That's not sales or gross revenue, that's net profit after subtracting costs. Almost 2 billion more than the next-most profitable quarter in history.

Heh. I very much doubt that I'll need to upgrade this machine before it finally turns its toes up and goes to the great PC scrapyard in the sky.

And yes, I do use all that power.

And yes, my antivirus is free.

And yes, I am still £1100 better off than I would have been had I bought the puny Mac pictured above.

Cal Tech wins $1.1 billion patent infringement case against Apple, Broadcom

Apple and Broadcom must pay $1.1 billion in damages for infringing CalTech’s patents on Wi-Fi transmissions, a California jury ordered Wednesday.

Apple was ordered to pay $838 million, while Broadcom was ordered to pay $270 million, according to lawyers for CalTech.

Apple said it planned to appeal the verdict. Broadcom didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

CalTech filed the lawsuit in 2016, claiming Broadcom Wi-Fi chips in Apple products infringed its patents. The Apple products cited were the iPhones iPads, iPods, Watches, Apple TVs, Macs, iMacs, HomePods, Macbooks and Airport routers.

The patents relate to coding systems that correct errors in the transmission of data used in the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard.Apple and Broadcom denied infringing the patents and said the school wasn’t entitled to significant damages even if they were using the inventions.

The only issues before the jury were whether the Broadcom chips used the university’s patents and, if so, how much in damages was owed.

Even though I work in patents (translation thereof) I'm kinda jaded about the whole thing and about intellectual property law in general.

I'm also skeptical that a jury of laypeople can truly figure out whether one group of eggheads "stole" an idea from another group of eggheads or came up with it independently. Even if you do come up with an idea independently it's possible for it to fall under a patent claim, because those are written very broadly in many cases. (Seriously, it's the job of patent attorneys to right patent claims to be as broad as they can get away with.) The point of a patent isn't really to convey useful information (well, ostensibly it is, in theory, but in practice that's not what the people writing them really care about). The actual point of a patent is to legally protect one's "intellectual property" from being used without the permission of the person claiming the invention. In the end, it's "will this patent protect me from being sued, and will it allow me to sue others if they try to use this general idea."
