"Ricci said Nuance had deferred certain deals with phone makers as it had been trying to hold on to its higher pricing, which was reflected in the outlook."
Just about 7 months ago people were all excited about Apple and Carl Ichan taking a stake. Motley Fool has an article titled. "Will Apple and Ichan save Nuance Communications?" Now we know the answer. I just bring this up as YET AGAIN another example of an apple supplier being squeezed. Careful what you wish for.
I hear you. I never suggested INVN give away their products. Quite the contrary; my posts have stated that if the profit isn't there we don't need the headaches. Given INVN's superior technology I saw them needing INVN as much as INVN needed them. I believe that's still the case but Apple has there way of doing business. Like Disney, they squeeze their vendors. Hopefully, after losing some more business, they'll see there the errors of their ways with respect to INVN.
