Don’t you just hate it when a huge corporation does something that looks designed to spite one of its bitterest rivals (and stalwart chip suppliers at the same time), only to find out it was actually a business-minded decision that had little to nothing to do with the current bickering? How am I supposed to care about where your chips are coming from without the drama, Apple?
It turns out the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company may take over where Samsung left off, with the manufacturing of tiny electronic brains for Apple’s fleet of iPhones and iPads. The move seems to be aimed at putting a 28 nm manufacturing process into place as opposed to the 45 nm process Samsung uses. Well, that and the patent lawsuits, but mostly it’s the silicone.
