  1. Thoughts about the Apple Inc. (AAPL) versus Qualcomm (QCOM) dispute:
    Based on my education in programming, I seriously do not believe Apple Inc. (AAPL) can successfully argue Qualcomm’s IP has nothing to do with whatever “touch” screen Apple chooses to use based on input/output. Streaming movies and videos … requires a lot from the modem. Any iPhone user that wants to Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, … text, send a picture, or check their e-mail, et cetera must tappity-tap-tap on their touch screen then hit enter, send, etc. This communication between the screen and the modem is controlled by the software input/output to/from device and then connectivity to the network for both send and receive … whether Apple Inc chooses to use Qualcomm chips, or not, the Standard Essentials Patents, such as for CDMA means Apple still needs a QCOM license … and Apple Inc. is selling a hand held computer in the disguise of a phone … kind of like trying to convince the sales tax man that the Rolls Royce you just bought should pay no more tax than a Ford because they both have four wheels …
    Or to put it another way …
    But, really, should an Apple device that is streaming movies and videos … imposing a substantial demand on the network, modem to cpu to screen … pay the same as a phone that simply takes/makes calls… and maybe texts …. ??! Pretty sure common sense would say no! And, Apple Inc. is in a position to recover the costs of Qualcomm SEP Licensing with the sale of every app and with every movie and video streamed… not to mention the advertising sold …
