Well, they are diversified. They make a lot of HP, Dell computers and their servers. So one would expect if Apple fails in the PC, it would probably mean more HP/Dell orders unless PC overall tank.

Not surprisingly, Foxconn may be looking to diversify its revenue base with other high volume products.

This is news? Isn't it what all large companies seek to do as a matter of course?

This isn't really a shining light for Apple.

[citation][nom]eklipz330[/nom]the only way foxconn is going to keep moving forward is if they make things more efficient/use more machinery and less slaves[/citation]

They have been looking into robotics but it seems they have stopped those plans due the risk of skynet being born and that it would wipe out all humans due to robotic abuse!

[citation][nom]house70[/nom]Foxconn needs only to grow a pair, charge Apple more/unit and put the money in better work conditions.[/citation]

It's not lack of profit that is keeping them from improving working conditions, it's greed. They do it because they *can*.

Companies in the U.S. are no different, it's just the minimum standard is higher: http://inequality.org/executive-pay-scorecard-2011/

Cash bonuses totaled more than $90.5 million for the top 10 CEOs in 2010
That's an avg bonus of $9,050,000.00 per CEO. EACH bonus could have employed 181 workers at the current middle income avg salary of $50,000. That's the pay of over 1800 jobs, or 18,000 good pay raises that was soaked up by *only* 10 "successful" d***bags.

Tell this to Wall Street. Their 'analysts' have not figured that out yet. As a result we have a stock that is way overpriced and bound to crash.

foxconn are already diverse. They do work with HP and Dell etc and they also do there own brand motherboards etc. Maybe they just need a better marketing department!

Apple will make about 400 dollars off every iphone 5 built and it costs about 160 bucks to build. Apple makes a huge profit off sales of the iphone raping the customers and suppliers all the while cashing in on massive profits off sales.
It's not just new products that are ridiculously overpriced either if you want to have your device repaired that is not under warranty it will cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars for a simple fix.
A friend of mine had a broken super drive and the estimated cost from the Apple store was 2000 dollars! You may as well get yourself a new PC for that price!

There's more cost to a product than the price to manufacture it.

I had been using foxconn motherboards for years. But lately, they have faltered in their quality. If they put the quality back into their boards, and leave that slave driver known as Apple, they might have a better chance. As one poster below says, Foxconn needs to grow a pair.
