    Why doesn't Apple just buy MU?

    great post.. thinks for the insite.. my premise still stands.. Apple looking to intergrate memory production into the company.. if not via MU this from scratch? via purchase?.. Apple has to cut samsung out of the loop... they can't be trusted...

    • Yea, wish I had thought of it. You may want to see my reply there under the heading "Is Eric a Closet Long" a few days ago.

    • Another point I forgot to add is that Samsung and Micron don't have as bad of a relationship history with one another that Apple has with both of them. The Micron Hyundai relationship is far more adverse. Micron sold Samsung its initial DRAM process in 1984 after being denied by Mostek, TI, and Intel. (I believe that that was one of the events that Apple didn't appreciate concerning Micron as Apple was trying to remain American at the time.) So if you're looking for a good scape goat as to why Samsung is now eating Apple's (and US tech's) lunch you may want to look in Micron's direction for a start.

      As a personal side, the last memory board I purchased was for a database server that I ordered from Crucial two years ago since I like buying local as much as I can. Well the board is from Crucial, but has Samsung memory loaded on it.
