Apple now is walking on their knees to Samsung begging to produce for them a chips for their products since apple can't do on their own.
Samsung mobile sales has dropped so much, hope this chip deal can help it
Hmm... Sounds like the old saying still applies: one hand washes the other. Once it happens, in the business world, then they both show us the middle finger.
AnonD-104517, 18 Nov 2014apple cant survive without samsung but samsung can live long ages without apple...Samsung breaking deals or stop supplies to apple would cause panic in Asian stockmarkets, Seoul stock exchange would surely have to close all trade for some days to avoid the price collapse but Samsung would fall to levels that would be disastrous. Apple would shake but not fall, products in supplier chain pipelines could keep them going for quite a while, most of the problems would be remedied before it reached the point where customers could no longer buy iPhones, meanwhile Samsung would struggle to rise from the ruins.
South Koreas government being Samsungs biggest stock holder would probably pay a high price as well, we can easily see korea lose many of the lucrative contracts they had lately for example with building rig overbuilds for oil installations in the Norwegian sea, the last one was made by Samsung Heavy Industries. Korean shipbuilding would probably collapse within few years, all future contracts would go to China, Japan and Norway among others, trustworthy reliable suppliers. Just as well, Korean offshore tech is nothing more than inferior copies of Norwegian designs anyway.
If only you knew what you were talking about... You are hinting at South Korea committing financial suicide.
Apple iPads and iPhones are relabled Samsung products considering how much Samsung components are used.
apple cant survive without samsung but samsung can live long ages without apple...
I knew it, Samsung and Apple were always in bed and the fanboys of each camp were just feeding them. Haha
It was Apple who cut ties with Samsung now look who's coming back begging for help. Samsung does not need Apple at all despite the declining profit. Samsung does not face billions of loss like Sony. Samsung only face a decline in revenue which means they are still in profit. These iSheeps as always fail to comprehend. What if Samsung does not agree to manufacture chips for Apple? Samsung will still remain profitable while Apple will lose 80% of iPhone/iPad production. Kudos for Samsung for helping Apple.
[deleted post]I hope Sammy backStabs apple! Cmon fellas . This IS business , One of the first rules is to learn to Co-Exist with Other entities in your ecosystem . thats what the two Companies are doing . despite " rivalry" as we are told and constantly reminded that they are rivals I always Knew there was no such, this People Share more than what is Currently disclosed. and u can be Sure that none among the two will be closing shop soon.

Apple reach its peak making smartphone (IPhone 5s) and now Samsung help them to reach there goal. I think if no have Samsung, Apple is like Nokia. A giant without wings.
It is because there just aren't enough chip manufacturing factories in the world.
