Hey wow, thanks iGAV!!! I'd been looking for that info for a while now. It seems like Apple's purchases were a lot cheaper than I though.
I wonder why Apple is amortizing Zayante for 10 years?
Interesting tidbit nevertheless.

The $100 million bit is very interesting as drastik says!! even weirder though is that $83 million remains unused...... :confused:
