    The iOS Action-Threat to Limit the Royalties

    That's the argument I like the most. The ability to have automatic VPN security will only be offered on a specific version of the future iphone OS. Thus only those OS phones will be subject to a royalty. The ploy is probably as many have suggested a feigned threat to negotiate the RR. IE if we, Apple, start charging for the automated security feature, fewer users will want it and fewer phones will need to be licensed and you VHC will get fewer royalty fees. However, with phones integrating more business and more ecommerce capabilities, the inability to have automatic security without paying an upcharge for the OS doesn't seem likely.
    I also think we can pretty much bank on the fact there will not be an appeal. This wouldn't have hit the public domain if it was a possibility.

    • Duck, if you're right, Apple is taking one helluva risk for end-users to accept. And the responsibility to make sure you are secure when you want to be. Otherwise, security is flimsy at best. Wow, I sure as heck wouldn't buy another Apple device with insecurity hanging in the balance!!! AND, up to me EVERY TIME I wanted it enacted. I can't remember to tie my shoes every day, let alone make sure my security is safe and sound. No thanks, do it automatically if you don't mind Apple--or a competitor!!
