Well, while Apple won't do much about it right now... in a few months / years, they might think about it when they ponder about moving back to the US!

Anna:

I am one of those people that had cheered Apple on the "great product" chant. But now I seem to agree with the fact that it has to be combined with keeping up the public image to enhance the product and keep the mometum of success high!

Hello

THere's a bussines relationship between APPLE & FOXCONN, if the manufacturing site jeopardize customer deliveries, brand recognition, brand promise, even worst... the revenue, of course there's going to be consecuences, and the manufacturing site will be accountable for damaging the reputation of APPLE, is up to Apple of they do it at short or long time, but Foxconn will be replaced.

Regards

I agree with Anna, history does not repeat itself...not even for Apple.

@Clairvoyant, You may be surprised how the eventual drip, drip, drip, drip, drip of water can wear away stone. Apple has spent so much building up itself on the product side it doesn't seem to realize the public image is much more than just a great product. So, this incident may not hurt Apple. What about the next ones combined with the previous events?

I agree, DennisQ. I don't think this will affect Apple much.

This isn't even the first time Apple has dealt with Foxconn issues. I don't think it'll really hurt Apple even in the short-term.

Foxconn needs Apple more than Apple needs Foxconn and Apple obviously has some level of mastery when it comes to their supply chain management, so I am not concerned whatsoever.
