    in 2007, scatterbrain estimated apple at 2 million per qtr

     

    thanks for that link jeffree. we all knew the deal was for a fixed amount.

    i for one, didnt realize it was for so little.

    The amount here , is another disappointment

    They said the deal was worth 56 million, over 7 years.

    or, 2 million a quarter.

    at the time, apple was just starting out.

    we may have been getting overpaid at the beginning.

    we have probably been underpaid for while

    but

    even if we are underpaid now, we still have an apple agreement.

    if they took an undervalued payment from every 2g,3g/4g/lte mfr, we would probably be at the 800 million right now

    but no

    we worked too hard

    we wont settle for less

    lets keep it in the courts

    maybe idcc truly wants to keep in in the courts, so we wont find out how low the rates will be.

    i have to add apple to the disappointing list

    apple
    samsung 2g/3g
    ericson 2g
    at%t 2g
    qualcomm 2g

    but again, isnt it better to have seemingly low revs/ payments from these companies, rather than risk losing everything in court, and be paying humongous legal fees
