Sure they have referring to the article below where even with 5.4% share of handset market apple has 57% percent of handset market profit. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4218407/Analyst--Apple-had-57--of-Q2-handset-profits

that means more jobs in India and China? They can probably hire 4 times more employees at the same cost.

It looks like APPLE has given everybody around a run for their money.

No wander why they are not profitable. Look at them. It is a world-wide feeding research money wasting company. Although they were one of the leading player, they keeps believe that they were, are, and will be the best always. None of board member wants to see where they are going.

odd that the site doesn't list Bangalore, India. ST-E does have a RF circuit design group there. I know someone who still works there last I spoke (a month ago or so)

Does the restructuring have anything to do with the economy?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
