Re: An unsually poor article
Agreed. look at history. Who makes all the DVD players/TV sets now? The OEMs. The output is then rebranded to make it appear that a past Manufacturer with a good product is the source. This is happening with smartphones. The only way to make money from manufacturing is to have very high volumes, good reliability and low overheads. At some point, the price premium will disappear and there will only be a small market for a fashion product. Not many people buy Chanel perfume compared to the size of the smell market.
