Intel-powered broadband modems off the 'net with a 'trivial' packet stream

And as a hilarious conclusion they settle. Intel was just in it to mess with Qualcomm too.

All this because of a $9 dollar royalty on a $1000 phone that Apple did not want to pay.

The critical word is pay. YOU need to want to pay 1k for a phone lasting 2 years. THEY want to keep as much of that as they can, with proper bookkeeping even more than you shelled out.
 
Qualcomm has an active US FTC probe ongoing too. So they still have regulatory pressures.
Become too big and your uncle wants their cut.
I dunno if this deal squashes that. I now wonder how much of the case was drudged up by Apple in the first place.
