Apple Acquires Beddit, Apple and Nokia End Patent Battle

Today's Above Avalon email includes the following stories: 

  • Apple Acquires Beddit
  • Apple and Nokia End Patent Battle

We kick off today's email with my thoughts on Apple acquiring Beddit, a hardware and software company focused on sleep monitoring. We go over Beddit's history and product. In addition, we look at Apple's motivation for acquiring the company. The discussion then turns to news of Apple and Nokia settling all litigation between each other. We take a deep dive into why this particular Nokia settlement seems different than previous Apple/Nokia settlements. There are implications related to Apple's growing war with Qualcomm.
