Valentine’s Day can be a tough one for the newly or perpetually single, but it doesn’t have to be

Poll results: No love for phones on Valentine's day

While we love to get expensive stuff for those we love, some holidays just don’t call for this type of devotion. And they don’t call for gadgets and gizmos. Well, that’s all according to personal perception, of course — nobody can tell you what you and your special someone like to get as a present.

But we thought we’d ask you — seeing how many red- or pink-themed phones get launched around Valentine’s Day each year, and seeing the many BOGO deals or buy one, get one at a discount deals, we were wondering — how many of you go out and get a phone for their better half?

Ah, the beauty of gift-giving. Nowadays, it’s pretty common to shell out for an expensive present at some occasions, such as the Christmas holidays or a special someone’s birthday. Cynics might pin it as a bad syndrome of capitalism and consumerism programming us to measure our feelings in cold, hard cash.

Qualcomm and Broadcom to meet on Valentine's Day to talk marriage

Qualcomm has told Broadcom that it has rejected its “best and final offer” of $121 billion because of several factors. One is valuation. Qualcomm believes that it is worth more than a cash and stock bid of $82 a share. In addition, Qualcomm has stated that if a deal is agreed to and government regulators refuse to clear it, the company will be “enormously and irreparably damaged.” As a result, the company wants to have a break-up fee in place that is higher than the usual 3%-4% of the transaction’s value. Broadcom has reportedly agreed to an $8 billion fee, which is 6% of the deal’s value.
