It would be a good job from Apple if it doesn't restrict Sharp relationship with Apple's competitors as condition for the investment.

Did that $368M fine reported yesterday really happened, if so, where's the big media coverage?

The fine from that FRAND patent case regarding FaceTime?

Yeah. Doesn't seem to cause any media buzz.

There's also rumors Apple is considering buying Sharp as a whole. Hopefully it's just a rumor with absolutely not truth to it.

Sharp has some great displays. I considered getting a TV from them next time I get one. However, if Apple buys them, I'll look elsewhere :)
