Ask any damn Apple supplier how important thsi ONE customer is. Apple is providing 50% or more revenue to their affiliates. Ask Corning or Foxconn if they would like to do business with Apple.Sorry Bob Swan, Apple was not the problem, Intel was. Had Intel supplied superior modems on time they could have had an exclusive deal with Apple and raked in billions. Intel had no idea what to do with their modems or how to move forward, Apple on the other hand knows how. An easy sale for confused Intel and a good deal for Apple.Bob you'll be crying when you see what Apple does with your tech. When Apple rakes in billions implementing their modems in iPhone/iPad/Mac/Watch/Car/future products.
What happened to Apple's philosophy of only acquiring small companies? This is big corporate merger crap other companies do to squash competition in an industry.
Wondering about what this last comment will concretely lead to: move processing from clouds to the networks. I think I understand the idea, I’m not sure what they can achieve that isn’t already possible with the cloud.
