Anytime anybody speaks of ‘production chain’… —related to iPhone or anyother device— I do remember that Kaiser Shipyards, during WWII, released a Liberty ship a day! (OK, that wasn't continuous… but they were 14kton ships!)
And, of course, Apple is doomed! They did not annoucnced any upgrade to the Mac mini!
(As a side comment, only a French can cite the slave telling the victorious general that dead is for all… specially in Rome! Do not forget history!)
