SleepingEye: I'd have to ask what the hell they're doing with that money?
Hollie Maea: That article is "old" in that it was written before Intel's new expansion, which is 2.5 times larger than their previous biggest expenditure ever.
jules_siegel: they could sell more smartphones if they could make them
BullBearMS: SleepingEye: I'd have to ask what the hell they're doing with that money?The same as Intel. They are paying for the plants that will make components for their near future products.
spawn73: poisonedpawn78:Thats why they ARE looking to that Taiwanese micro processesor company to pick up the next contract. the problem was that they couldnt do it in time without a supply disruption. And the hilarious part will be in the future when the quality of the apple products drops significantly. Hearing all the hipsters claiming ITS NOT TRUEEEEEE as their 4 day old iphone bricks itself on a faulty chip.TSMC could easily do it. But they would rather have many smaller customers than one large. If they had most of the production doing stuff for Apple they would not only be dependant on something they couldn't control, the fortunes of Apple, but Apple could also preassure them on prices, which Apple would.So TSMC will always prefer to only be able to sell 80% of their capacity to numerous customers, than having 100% of the production sold, with 80% of that being Apple.
Hollie Maea: The difference is, they just started spending their money very recently. They have frankly been resting on their laurels way too much.
AdamK: /never been impressed by anything Samsung makes//has an iphone, would love to get a windows phone
BullBearMS: In other holy farking shiat events...Breaking: Windows Head Steven Sinofsky to Leave Microsoft
BullBearMS: Hollie Maea: The difference is, they just started spending their money very recently. They have frankly been resting on their laurels way too much.No.They have moved from being willing to allow Samsung to manufacture a majority of their components to deciding to control their own supply chain.
BullBearMS: Apple was Samsung's largest customer.
Diogenes Teufelsdrockh: Bingethinker = Apple Bevets or iBevets, if you prefer.
Glockenspiel Hero: AdamK:/never been impressed by anything Samsung makes//has an iphone, would love to get a windows phoneReally? This doesn't impress you?[cphoto.asiae.co.kr image 550x403]Samsung makes bloody everything- they may not make the Apple's products come 2014, but there's a good chance the things will be shipped on a Samsung ship
BullBearMS: If this were true, there would be a shortage of Samsung products on the shelves.
Bacontastesgood: BullBearMS: In other holy farking shiat events...Breaking: Windows Head Steven Sinofsky to Leave Microsoftshiat. They're firing the wrong Steve.
Glockenspiel Hero: Really? This doesn't impress you?
