Apple is the scum of the computer world. I'll be glad when they finally go out of business.

That's roughly an extra $3 per device. That's got to hurt... lachen.gif

Anyway Apple is shifting over to TSMC, so that will be interesting...

Apple just buy other people's good ideas and put them in one spot.. then create an image of how you life would look/work if you used those "good ideas" too..
They don't manufacture (yet) but they do design.

Apple and samsung are both very profitable businesses.
Samsung is run by business people who do not want to lose profit from business with apple.
20% price increase is about right.
100% or more price increase would cause too much decrease in apple sales/profits and possibly force apple to use a different supplier.
Remember ... less apple sales = less samsung sales
20% price increase sends a message to apple and somewhat compensates samsung for apple's antics.
Samsung can always lower the price if Apple seriously considers switching suppliers.
This is Samsung's way to "play strong" with Apple while not immediately losing Apple business.
If apple wants a lower price, they should beg or bargain with Samsung to lower the price.
Of course, arrogant Apple will never do that.

You might be dressed in rags, but if you have an iPhone, iMac, iPad etc you are part of "that thing"...that's what Jobs sold as no other before him..."exclusive" for the masses.
Expensive, exclusive-badged devices have been around before the ipod, before the iphone etc. Those were sold to the upper end, and a few wannabes.
Apple nailed all the wannabes - which of come by the millions, vs. a handful of those who actually are the upper class wink.gif

Couldn't have said it better.

I'm glad Samsung is fighting back. They have been WAY to nice over this whole ordeal. I hope this is the the start of Samsung's offensive.

Looks like Samsung is making Apple pay for its legal fees, albeit in a roundabout way.
post #48 of 76
20% on a cpu can't be such a large amount. 10 dollars max. but Samsung is going to do this to every component then manufacture, that'll add up to quite a large amount. apple can't do anything about this because apparently samsung is only place with the capacity to produce such quantities. Apple says they're migrating to TSMC, but can TSMC really handle apple especially given their yields

Yeah, because that's a great idea. Fabs are very R&D/capital intensive, so I doubt Apple wants to go down that route.

Apple already spends something like $8 Billion a year on it, for reference Intel spent on $2.2 billion last year. They are probably already doing it. Which the increase would make sense for Samsung, make some money before Apple starts producing their own supplies. Couple that with their cost increases as China is going through their owner workers right/pay/safety revolution at the moment.
