"Blevins (Apple exec) hoped that the iPad mini 2 could help begin a longer-term relationship with the chipmaker, and had a meeting with Qualcomm president Christiano Amon in 2013. Amon, however, simply told Blevins that, “I’m your only choice, and I know Apple can afford to pay it." "
This was from the FTC trial yesterday. Reading the article, I feel Apple may be right. It is not uncommon for our execs to screw it up. Poor negotiators and arrogant I feel. Let us see what the decision is. They will find Q guilty in some and exonerate in some. Will end up paying 500m in fines for sure.
