I have seen so many US companies move their back end and also the front end to outside companies. I think it is because so many of the executives listen to the bean counters instead of making their own business decisions. It may be best for the dollar today, but long term it may be detrimental to the company.

It is really a hard feeling to transfer the ownership of any sucessfull business system .How Toshiba feels this?

This is a continuing trend to outsource the back end. Semi companies have only the intellectual property of the design. The production of the product seems to be moving further away from the owner.
