One complex of reports and rumors that no one is talking about concerns the investments that Foxconn and Apple were said to be making in Sharp's oxide backplane technology around 2012 and 13. Foxconn was said to be into it to the tune of 1.3 billion, I think, supposedly for 50-plus-inch screens. Icahn may have information on something to do with this program, which is hard to imagine Foxconn and Apple just dropping. I think it's obvious that the oxide production...
According to this person unfamiliar with the matter (me), this WSJ story is a diversionary plant. A tweak of Carl Icahn's beard.
Looks like your daughter is taking after you. Nice work.That aside, you're babbling, trying to get something negative out.
Twenty-five new stores in a year and a half. I think this is an amazing pace of expansion, but I have nothing to compare it to. Anybody?

Hey, thanks for the tip.
Good news. Trader Joe's was such a holdout on barcode readers, I was wondering how soon they would move into "airpay" POS systems of any kind. Not wondering actually, but worried is more like it.

The checkout counter at TJ's is always a social scene already, in complete contrast to other chain groceries that I know of.

Japan took out the US, Korea took out Japan, and now China will take out Korea.Meanwhile Apple and Silicon Valley is starting a new post-industrial revolution that doesn't have a name yet, but it has something to do with thinking liberated by experience in UK and America in the 1960s.Follow the media, Marshall McLuhan would say.
I seem to remember that the Japan Display investment was for LTPS production. They bet only the farmhouse on LTPS, since that was a well-proven technology, in use since the iPhone 4, just massively production constrained, as iPhone sales grew and bigger screens were needed.For the even larger screens, I know of no alternatives to their uncertain IGZO strategy. I say uncertain because I believe several products are on hold waiting for production problems to be solved. I...
