The actual "bait and switch" was accomplished by the GTA (!) leadership who, having no previous expertise in Sapphire boule production, entered into agreement with Apple with the apparently sole intention of offloading their company shares at a profit, filing for bankruptcy to absolve themselves of any obligation to produce what they couldn't deliver in the first place, and riding off into the sunset with bags of cash, in the process giving the much-respected American...
Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire couldn't conquer the Blue Sky....  
"Copresence" happens to be an anagram of "Creep cones"
 Yes, the Tiger-Economy-Sweatshop argument is more than over-balanced by the dodgy, asset-stripping, self-interest-motivated, philistine First-World-Economy CEO's that sell out hundreds of their local workers jobs at the drop of a hat for personal gain, and in the process give the manufacturing reputation of their home countries a very bad name among the successful movers and shakers in the global industry.
LoL, I rest my case, dude...
It wouldn't surprise me if, in their desperation to beat off better-performing rivals and win Apple's order, GTAT themselves offered up those incredibly stiff conditions. Always looking to minimise cost and maximise margins, Apple predictably jumped at GTAT's apparent willingness to shoulder financial responsibility for the order.

Then again, they may be positioning themselves to be bought out by a Big Data Apple rival like Google or hardware contender like Samsung. It will stlll come down to their software, hardware and...

Dashboard is still there in Yosemite, and allows you to see many separate widgets in one page, one glance, rather than having to scroll around a small column or section of a page. System Preferences can be tweaked (click on "Mission Control") to set it to OFF, as an overlay (press F12 key to view it and again to dismiss it) or as a separate Mission Control page.
