23. No, it is more like "stop pretending Apple is the only one"

Until you folks figure out that This problem is bigger than Apple, there isn't going to be any point in discussing it.

You have to let go of your fixation on Apple. Your obsession is blinding you to the larger issue.

The platform wars were over years ago. Windows won. Let it go.

You've seen the list of FOXCONN's other major clients. Sony, Dell, Microsoft, Amazon, Samsung, and so.

This is about an ENTIRE INDUSTRY that has moved its manufacturing to FOXCONN in order to meet consumer friendly price-points.

It is all about sales and who can get market dominance. You get a good consumer price point, if you have a good product the money will roll in.

Everybody at DU knows what I am talking about and how we got to this place.

I doubt there is a single person posting on this thread that does not own something manufactured by FOXCONN. It is almost impossible not to.
