@tpfj Intel acqisition of Infineon closed in January 2011 Nvidia acquisition of Icera closed in June 2011 Google Moto deal did close in 2012 but was first announced in August 2011 and is equipment related. Samsung acquisition of CSR mobile development operations is an important deal that was first announced in July 2012. Samsung agreed to pay CSR plc (Cambridge, England) $310 million for its handset connectivity and location operations and the associated technology. Samsung has also agreed to invest an additional $34.4 million to take a 4.9 percent stake in publicly-held CSR. We covered the story initially here: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4390445/Samsung-acquires-CSR-s-mobile-business and followed up with an analysis here: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4391689/Does-Samsung-deal-leave-CSR-out-in-the-cold- Thanks to tpfj for the reminder.

AMD deal is strange, it's like buying the customer so you can sell your own wares more

Not sure what you mean by Google acquiring Moto Mobility is an equipment deal and therefore somehow not relevant? Some would argue its the insurance policy for Android. You are right, the other two were 2011 deals, oops (blush), time sure seems to fly.

I guess Google's divestiture of Motorola's STB and cable modem business to Arris will count as a 2013 deal, even though it was announced last month?

This is why Apple is king in quality products. Apple just makes everything better than the rest. This gotta get you even more upset huh? Upset for no reason at all. I can't afford a Ferrari but I don't just hate the company for it. I just don't get these Apple hater trailer trash folks. Oh wait! there is a free Android phone for you at T-Mobile.
