Apple agrees to wait for c.$1.5B owed by Japan Display, to assist bailout Ben Lovejoy - May. 30th 2019 5:47 am PT
Apple has agreed to wait for money owed to it by Japan Display in order to assist the bailout of the troubled display-maker …
Reuters doesn’t go into details on the money owed to Apple, but it likely relates to the Cupertino company paying most of the upfront costs of a new LCD factory built specifically for iPhone production back in 2015.
It was reported back in March that Apple paid most of the $1.5B cost of the facility, with an agreement that it would be repaid as a percentage of each screen sold. However, little was repaid due to falling demand for LCD panels as smartphone makers switched to OLED.

5G it seems to me is not really about phones. I think its about IoT somewhat. Smart cars for sure. Factory robots too.
ATT likes it because its cheaper to maintain and build than DSL or glass.
I'm digging my new $100 Android. Much faster than my old $70 android. I finally figured out how to put playlists from iTunes on it.
Apple of course... tries to make compatibility difficult. So the exported m3u playlist files have to be edited because they point to m4a files which are not playable on the googleplay app and must be converted to flacs. They are playable on VLC of course but VLC won't do the playlists right. Google is no different in that aspect.
VLC is better than either of the selfish bickering giants.
