and this in the end means less revenue for fab tool vendors and possible more powerful new venture. all at the cost of already miserable US workers. bye bye GF, or NY fabs.

obvious, they can share 1 set of litho tools instead of buying two sets.

Hope this merger can help improving the profit margin. Anyway, this may be good for Chinese foundry business as a whole.

How much good would that do is my question to those on the know? I would think is like shouting to a tall and omnipowerful wall.

Well, it's comforting to know that the Chinese can now tweet their displeasure for losing their $10/day job...

the chinese style communism now is like ... uh US with republicans always in office. people can't vote their top lead but can tweet or blog to express their thoughts. It works now for china.

Things had been changed a long way back. Even a "Communist" company need think how to make profile first.

This makes sense in all ways because in this high capital business, merger is the only model. This industry is not even a high margin, so what the Chinese are doing makes sense.
