    I did a little research and got varying #'s but it looks like verizon is worth at least 100 billion dollars so, while I am sure they rather not give up 14b. They can afford it and not miss a beat.

    Just because a company is worth so much, doesn’t mean they have the money to pay for it.

    “It is likely that Apple would be reluctant to simply ignore these commitments"
    What the hell? "Reluctant"? Who in their right mind turns down $14 billion dollars?

    If you had $100 in your pocket, would you really care if I give you $2?

    To proparly make the analogy you need to say "If you have $100 in your pocket would you want $14?", but that would mean more people would say "yes I want that $14" than you would like.
    Also this is not $2, this is $14 billion.
    Apple's $100 billion is out of the country, this $14 billion is in U.S. which Apple can use without paying tax to bring the money into U.S.
    If I am a stock holder I would want Apple to collect this money, if I am lawyer for Apple who drafted the damn contract want Apple to collect.
    I hope they just spend that $14 billion correctly, hire some innovative people and create something new!!!!
