    Welcome to the post iPad era!

    It depends how much negative PR Apple gets over this story. If they have to start refunding money and watching sale drop they'll be thinking long and hard about the Samsung 32nm next year timeline.

    As things stand right this moment, Glo Fo nearly putting AMD out of business, TSMC with a closed down 28nm line for the last month and Samsung not even at 32nm I would have little faith in the ARM foundries if I were Apple. If this heat problem grows and Apple truly does suffer you can see some drastic changes very quickly.

    • I saw Bloomberg West try to fry an egg on one, rofl. But you do know it wont matter one whit to the numbers they will put up dont you.

      I just dont understand the additional risk of vertical integration when this co has grown this large. The added legal, technical and marketing risk is too big. One misstep can get out of hand.

      They really need to think it through. Cook is good, but that doesnt mean he comes to Intc. He could even spin off the division.
