Legal Why oh why does big news always break when I'm already in bed? This is a big one, guys: Motorola has been granted an injunction in Germany against Apple, which, as far as we can tell right now, covers Apple's entire portfolio of mobile products. Motorola can enforce this injunction, barring all of Apple's mobile products from the German market. In addition, Apple has to pay Motorola damages from 2003 and onwards. Update: Apple has responded (see Engadget article linked to above): "This is a procedural issue, and has nothing to do with the merits of the case. It does not affect our ability to sell products or do business in Germany at this time." At this time huh? Huh.

I going to have to say, mostly bs on this one, Apple fanboy. Foxconn builds for everybody.

This isn't about Foxconn, it's about component suppliers - chips, displays etc.

Indeed. Samsung only makes the CPU and Memory. Toshiba and Hynix are possible candidates to replace those, and TMSC will replace Samsung to produce Apple's A6 and A7. Really it's Samsung's loss as iPhone related business brought them $5,7 billion in 2010.
