Only a few companies have 14nm facilities. Intel and IBM (in collaboration with ARM) being a couple others.

Tim Cook teaches Apple to love the suppliers and not go thermonuclear.

> In reply to bruce-wayne @ 2013-07-15 22:48 from 7q54 - click to readThat's the misconception. Apple just jumped on the bandwagon. They mostly made apps more popular. Things were going to smart phones already. The only thing they did was gain and manipulate the eyes of the general public. People think that apple creating this market, think they made apps, rectangles, smartphones, and all else. In reality it's just what I said. And they did it all by buying, copying, and stealing on top of it all. Somewhere in there they have like 5% innovations.

Their idea of innovating is applying for patents on how their stores are set up. Tables lined in a row and facading glass.

here all the sammyfans commented what would happen to apple without samsung? but remember samsung also depends on android which was brought by google after ios. if apple didn't make ios probably no android was made by today.

It's like a cold war between these two giants. it'll be cools if they can join hands and manufacture or develop something together.
