True, the PlayStation 4 has voice activated commands too that work without an internet connection. For a fixed set of commands there is no need to send audio or audio signature to a remote server, current hardware is powerful enough to do that. In order to get good voice dictation is better (for now) to send the audio to a remote location with a lot of power and "knowledge" about voice and language patterns. But we aren't talking about dictation, those "smart" TVs recognize a predefined set of commands, not general dictation.

You are taking examples that are not a market monopoly, Search is an example that they can't do whatever they want, any example you find that say they can do watherver they want with that technology, doesn't make true: the parent comment "Making products work with only your products is legal" there are situations where that isn't true. The situation here is, was iTunes to big so they can't do whatever they wanted?

Say that to Google, they don't have the right to make their search products to only work with their browser or OSs, monopoly regulations will start to hit them. What did Apple wrong?, I can't say for sure, IANAL and apparently they will try an appeal, but was Apple music service big enough at the time they started screwing with other companies trying to enter the market? maybe, maybe not.

It ia a joke analogy, I know but the main idea is that your deals doesn't give you a blank cheque to do anything above the law, as I said, "if that was the case"

Continuing with the joke analogy, If the killer don't agree to kill the husband, the customer, the wife, will not get access to enjoy the money from the inheritance either

In my understanding of the Android docs and this blog, yes it can have one, Google Wallet use the harware secure element on supported devices. Recent Android releases added APIs too, for applications to emulate cards without access to the secure element, pure CPU based implementations, less secure but still an option.
