    Ok well at Apples' last earnings report they said that their earnings for the next quarter would be down.

    I believe the reasoning is because they are putting money into a factory

    Or maybe they realized that with the struggling housing market at the time would trickle down to consumer products and turn into the financial mess that we have today.

    I think your believing they are building a factory soley based on Apple stating is 3rd(or 4th) quarter earnings were going down is rediculous.

    Or, maybe they aren't taking a massive risk and a massive cost for no real gain.

    or they simply make their own chips.

    the said earnings will be down,
    the bought patents and a semiconductor company,
    they have cooperated in chip design and manufactoring before,
    steve jobs always wants to control everything,
    apple wants differentiate itself from windows computers,
    they need special chips for their ipods, iphones, tablets anyway.

    much more likely than building a factory.

    Now I'm doubly convinced! ;)
