Good job Apple
Now pay up or ship out.
(Rubbing thumb and forefinger together): It's the world's tiniest violin, and it's playing just for you, Apple.
That's just awesome!
can anybody come up with a figure on how much they stand to loose per day???
Not enough if you ask me. Gready bastards.
This will impact more than just current iPads. Future revisions are gonna be effected so it isn't going to be that simple. How far will Apple go to fight it? That is the question.
If Steve were alive, I wouldn't be surprised if he up and pulled production from China. Steve had to have his way, gotta remember that. But then where else could this iPad be made at? Probably would cost them a bit more elsewhere.
I'm kinda surprised how far this case has gone. Commie gov must feel they can get more out of Apple than they can the other way. But other companies around the world will be watching this. Either way it will impact more than just Apple.
Won't somebody please think of the Hipsters!?
Had to register to say how wrong you are. Joint ventures are joint ventures, completely separate from the rest of other Chinese car companies w/ no partnership that have been doing the copying.
Geely/Chery copied Chevy/Daewoo's [car name] and sold it as the QQ;
Shuanghuang copied BMW's X5 and sold it as the CEO;
Shuanghuang copied Benz/Smart's Fortwo and sold it as the Noble;
Honda's CRV has been copied as well and I could go on naming vehicles.
And guess what happened in the courts?
Those are NOT joint venture partnerships.
The notable joint ventures are with:
SAIC, Guangqi, Dongfeng, Brilliance, FAW.
This would help ProView have a better deal d'uring the negotiations as Apple would want to resolve it ASAP
This won't stop iPad production, just exportation. So the loss won't be as big as you'd think. They could also be shipping out as much as they can now just in case to limit the loss to next to nothing. They'll just give more to ProView, but it'll still be a tiny amount for Apple, unless ProView get really greedy, in which case Apple will suffer a longer exportation ban, and ProView might lose their negotiation privilege. ProView will have to get the right balance between greediness and fairness to get the most out of Apple
Good analogy except ........... Amy Whinehouse is dead.
I bet Apple is going to find another country to fab their shit, just in case. It's kind of stupid to put all of your eggs in one basket. But then again, it is Apple.
I wonder why not America?
Is because Americans won't do the job? Or is it cause Americans won't do the Job under stressful schedule's and routines for cheap labor?
I don't see American's getting cheaper iPhones due to the cheaper labor in China. Thus Apple and every other Company that use the workers of China as a means to simply profit exorbitantly. I guess its all good as long as we keep getting new expensive devices year after year.
Does the end justify the means?
Its because of profit margin. Americans wont work for 10¢ an hour let alone per day. Even with cost of shipping, its still A LOT cheaper to make them in China. However this is due to the fact that China is artificially keeping its curreny devalued because they want to keep bringing in new investors.
IIRC Apple was quoted as saying they will NEVER bring those job's back to the US, how's that for patriotism? Capitalism man, welcome to the new millenium, where everything is profit driven regardless of the impact on/to society.
