Funny indeed. :p

Samsung (galaxy series) and Apple OWNS more than half of the smartphone market and guess what their chips are all samsung-made. Not likely to change in a year.

So Americans are good enough to manufacture processing chips, but not to build iphones & ipads. Samsung and TSMC are bringing jobs into the US while Apple keeps them in Asia (except for the Macbooks of course). Maybe if they brought those jobs here there would be more potential customers for them.

Of course they could. Operating costs in America are much higher than in Asian countries though. That's why they had to manufacture in China for example.

Ever since Apple's stock downslide has begun, every now and then I come across something that would give investors some HOPE.. Be it their Earnings call or it selling MILLIONS more than Galaxy S handsets, but still I believe that once S IV starts selling out, Apple is doomed..
