I'm sure some are holding off right now just on the rumours of higher screen refresh rates. Others will be waiting on a periscope lens. Others will be waiting for higher power wireless charging, bigger batteries etc.

TSMC is not an American company and all profits (after taxes) will not stay in the US. Will the citizens of Arizona accept a Taiwanese company or will they boycott them as being non-American? I guess money talks more than anything else but how much is Phoenix paying them to build there? Are they selling out the citizens like Wisconsin did with the failed Foxconn major installation?
It would be great to see that site successful and pave the way for more high end manufacturing in the US.
What gets my goat is the argument that streaming is not analogous to a radio station, but rather to a record store. Really? You're claiming that with a straight face?
If I go to a record store and buy music, I own a copy of it. I can pretty much do what I like with it, including (with limitations) loan it to a friend.
The ownership rights for a song I stream? Zero.
Streaming is exactly like a radio station, except I'm the DJ. Pay the artists on a 50/50 split for streaming, just like for radio.
