Shaun, 07 Oct 2014Am not surprise of this and any other company that supplies Apple with parts. As we can all se... moreYes, you're one of the few people who understand how bad it is for suppliers to do busy with Apple.
Apple is notorious for grinding suppliers to dust with deals that hardly pay them anything. Suppliers feel they have to make the deal, so they can have the cache of being a company that supplies Apple and attract other customers that way. And they don't want to be the one who was passed over or couldn't work with Apple. But they really don't make money directly off of Apple.
It's not surprising that a relatively small company, making the sapphire crystals, couldn't handle this brutal business model. It's really only something for a very big supplier with deep pockets.
Apple is a mean company. But it makes the herd of nice American yuppies happy, as if somehow they're doing a favor to the world by using Apple products.
Apple: I have a dream! one day I can make apple watch and sue other companies who make the same smartwatch
Paying $27 for the glass and bet it doesn't cost a hundred dollars to bill but the price of the watch start at $350, what did you supplier expected?
Am not surprise of this and any other company that supplies Apple with parts. As we can all see, Apple pay cheap and sell very expensive. No wonder they get extra rich in such a short time. Apple suck the life blood out of every one they touch and doing it so convincingly that they have million following them and believe every thing they say. They copy some one after a couple of years and their follower believed they are the first/innovative. Whenever their product are flawed and the media point it out they strike at you as if you are wrong. the two last boss at Apple did it and Steve Job say bad stuffs about Microsoft and then run back to Bilgate for help to keep Apple alive. Blood suckers!
So Apple will surely buy it, just like siri.
And later on only Apple can make the patented Sapphire lens and screens.
Way to go Apple!
Considering Apple iOS has a shrinking 10% world marketshare, any of its suppliers can end up bankrupt like GT Advanced.
Trooper, 06 Oct 2014You obviously don't know the joke ?.Joke? There's nothing funny nor clever. Your analogy was dead wrong. Get educated
genuis, 06 Oct 2014Apple is the cheapest company on earth. They never got listed as the best company to work for.Hahaha. I think Apple sales people have pretty decent jobs. I hear a lot of decent pay and enjoyable work. What you should really avoid are the companies that work for Apple. Such as the Sapphire screen providers in this article. Lol
Mucl, 06 Oct 2014I'm no financial expert or something, but I thought bankruptcy meant that they have no money l... moreBankrupcy means a person or company can not pay its current debt. It does not mean they have no money. A company could have billions of dollars and still be bankrupt because they are not able to withdraw their funds in a timely manner to pay its debtors.
Mucl, 06 Oct 2014I'm no financial expert or something, but I thought bankruptcy meant that they have no money l... moreIt simply means they have more debt they can ever pay back. So they may have $85 million in cash but owe like $250 million.

chapter 7 is liquidation, 11 is not
joonius, 06 Oct 2014Maybe Apple under cut them waaaaay too much. LolApple is the cheapest company on earth. They never got listed as the best company to work for.
This is what you get for slaving for Apple. A lot of work but not enough payment to stay afloat.

"for those who are unfamiliar with jokes, the following statement is Joke,"
Apple: Recently we filed a patent infringement for our Watch; an unknown company is producing such sapphire crystal for watches' screen like ours that we introduced in September. And as we have someone in judicial system we won the case and the good news is that the company filed their bankruptcy. there is also an unknown issue which production line of our watches met which we have to post pone the arrival of the watches!!!!!!!
Mucl, 06 Oct 2014I'm no financial expert or something, but I thought bankruptcy meant that they have no money l... moreThat's why they are mentioning Chapter 11, which allows restructuring and continuation of the business. Chapter 7 however means complete bankruptcy, close down of the offices and plants, sales of teh assets and yeah, liquidation of the company.
