 The perfectly reasonable "I have no clue about this subject except for this one "fact" that is wrong and I can't be bothered to spend 10 seconds to look it up on this thing we call the internet which everyone knows I have because I posted this on a forum"? Please.  The one "fact" was another dig against poor neolithic Americans without (flawed) NFC systems and public schools that don't start till kids are 6 years old.   His follow up question was the same "but is it free...
 If Samsung leaves the US then someone else will buy the fab. Samsung is not a reliable supplier because they steal the IP being developed for the client and this has had a negative impact on US companies.
 Is it really easier to ask than to simply go to wikipedia and find out?  The official education system varies a bit from state to state but is called "K-12" or Kindergarden through 12th grade.  It's the public school system and free. Do you have a point to make?
You don't know any facts as this is untrue. Kindergarden starts age 5 and many districts provide preschool for age 4
 There's only rumors at this point (and too many of those are from DigiTimes) that Samsung and GF has the A9 at 14nm. Samsung had promised 20nm in the first half of 2013 and didn't deliver.  14nm in 2015 strikes me as iffy for full rate production in the numbers Apple and Qualcomm wants.  
Obviously Samsung knew they didn't get the A8. I guess they are hoping that TSMC has issues like they have in the past and Apple has to return for the next process node hop.
Yah"Latest news from @Chipworks: The A8 processor was fabricated at TSMC and uses a 20 nm CMOS manufacturing process."https://mobile.twitter.com/ifixit/status/513035449913593856
 First, the industry statistics show that the industry has been growing since 2009. Second, if hardly anyone wears watches how did they sell 1.2 BILLION in 2013? Third, why on earth would you think Apple would want to enter a dying market?  There's some sandbagging by Cook.  It's just like Job's "People don't read anymore" statement in 2008 before launching iBooks in 2010. Fourth, 60% margins is what the watch industry enjoys (overall anyway).  If Apple "only" gets 40%...
Which has what to do with the incorrect assertion that not many people wear watched or the incorrect assertion that the watch market is in decline?This is like complaining in 2007 that the phone market was largely dominated by dumb phones. So what?If apple only takes 1% share as was their original phone goal that's 12M watches (half as many as all Swiss watch makers) at a $400 ASP and 60% margins.That's $4.8B revenue and $2.88B gross profit.If they take 10% of the total...
Lol. Still spouting stuff without checking are we?1.2 billion watches were sold in 2013. Swatch's revenue was $8.8B. Rolex's was $4.5B.That's a lot of watches sold for "not many people" to wear.http://www.statisticbrain.com/wrist-watch-industry-statistics/US sales were $7.2B in 2012 and up since the 2009 low.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-watchs-time-isnt-up-2013-07-01The GPS sports watch category was estimated to grow to $1B in 2013.The global watch market was...
