Foxconn says hiring freeze not related to Apple
nothing to do with Apple. Bruce Liu, a spokesman for the contract manufacturer, denied that a slowdown in the production of Apple devices is related to the freeze.
Meanwhile, UBS analyst Steve Milunovich told clients that while production of Apple's iconic smartphone had declined in December, there has been no change since. Milunovich's theory is that the hiring freeze at Foxconn is related to Hewlett Packard. HP makes up 8%-10% of Foxconn's revenue according to the analyst, who says that the problems affecting Dell's PC line could also be affecting HP's computer products.

No just Foxconn's world. They were drinking the kool-aid and its running low.
