Which is a common practice since that way shareholders agree and are happy. Just look at for example GMCR selling price.

This is really a big deal. ARM is/was Britains largest tech company. This deal would have been sooo blocked if it were a American. At least we can still switch to MIPS anytime we want for our IoT needs.

It seems the deal is only happening due to brexit. This is what happens when uninformed short sighted individuals get to make decisions about the future of a country.
And with the pound so cheap now, I'm sure there's going to be tons more buyouts like this one. They voted to leave in order to protect their borders. But now they're going to lose all their most valuable property anyway.

ARM owns their own cpu archtecture. Same way Intel owns x86. The difference between the two companies is that Intel makes their own chips and rarely lets other companies make compatible chips. ARM however, never makes their own chips, others companies make the chips and pays ARM for the privilege of using their design. Apple is just one of those many companies. They design their own around ARM's "core" architecture. In spite of what they want you to think, Apple does not have the skills to design a chip from scratch

I'm sure they do but compatibility is a *****... or at least so horribly expensive that even Apple can't afford it.

Apple doesn't have the skill to design their own chip? Are you nuts? Jim Keller was with Apple until recently even!

Truth is, Apple not designing their own from scratch isn't due to a lack of ability. It is just far more cost effective in our consumer market to use another licensed design.

Everyone here is missing the point though, What is it why it is is it such a mathmatically correct'ish nombre.

It is easier to roll a tyre after it has already been set in motion. Static friction > dynamic friction. Plus, It is survivorship bias to categorize oneself by grunt work. Stuff can go awry fast with no back up plan at any point *cough* LucasArts *cough*.
