  • Yes 5x200million = 1 billion But isn’t apple worth a trillion? Do they even care about a billion? Would samsung ever make a 5$ increase per unit? That’s huge in the tech sector. Why the 200million figure? Is it significant or representative in some way?

  • We expect privacy and freedom under the constitution of the United States, we the people, because of that covinent expect Apple to abide. China has made no such promise to it's people, therefore they have no expectations as such. Because of that I, personally take no issue with apple accommodating China's surveillance laws. It's not so much that I believe in a populations right to be free from snooping by government agencies, as I believe a government should stick to it's promises made to it's people. And if one of those promises is that a people be free of unwarranted search and seizures, said government must stick to those promises no matter what. Sure China is an oppressive surveillance police state, but at least it isn't doing so while lying about it. That is where I would take issue

  • You forgot to mention lower taxes and entire mini city built just for Apple. They must be crazy to re-locate. Training new 4000 workers is reason good enough to stay. Foxcon are the only ones willing to move but they failed iPhone5-6 miserably. Their umits made in India were bending like noodles.

  • Other countries just don't have that many skilled workers. Vietnam and Thailand for example, have people that are way less educated and lazier from my observation. No one works as hard as the Chinese does. That's why they are so successful. I have been doing biz in Asia for a long time. For high-skilled jobs, it is really hard to transfer to other less developed countries.

  • It says a lot about Apple's customers that raising the price makes it more popular.

  • Maybe just final touch up and different designation. Other than that no way. China is where development and provider happen. And plastic part come from China. Apple don’t own any manufacturer mechines. Apple is a software and music subscription company. They can’t change that without raising prices. And you miss the point China has the technology to process rare earth within low radiation. We don’t have it and it gives China a automatic win. If they ban rare earth. The playing field is 4 years . Without process rare earth we can’t play in future tech. China win the 5 g market and fill the millions of ev gps electronic in cars.

  • Not only labor and rare earth materials, some high-valued parts of apple products are also made by Chinese company. For example, a portion of iPad/iPhone/Mac screens are made by BOE and othe Chinese supplier. Nowadays, you can buy Android phones of much better quality in China than in US, in the price range of $200-$500. Also, many important innovations are created by Chinese smart phone company. Apple of course cannot leave the most demanding and competitive market.

    • @TJ I know those ones very well, like the Wolf Warrior series and the beating of white men in all the Kung fu themed movies. But many of those more or less reflects to some degree the main stream Chinese ressentment of its colonial past, but I don' really recall seeing that element in the full on prapaganda films, those produced and/or financed by the government film agency.

    • I don't if they are but maybe there are hidden messages which are anti-American and maybe you're have watch them too much maybe you cannot tell the difference. Just a thought.
