    Xiaomi forced Panasonic to build new factory in China
    • Panasonic sells around $1.84 billion worth of home appliances in China annually. It makes kitchen appliances at plants in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Amoy, selling them at large retailers and online. But competition is intensifying from companies such as Xiaomi, a big Chinese smartphone maker, which is strengthening its lineup of attractively designed, affordably priced home appliances.

      New 4.5 billion yen ($41 million) plant will make kitchen appliances such as microwave ovens and rice cookers, and is scheduled to begin production in 2021. Panasonic decided to build the new factory in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, anticipating medium- to long-term growth in China.

      In reality Panasonic wants to cut some of production outside China, as they are also worried with slowly deteriorating China-Japan and Korea-Japan relations.

      It is expected that Xiaomi will start to eat Panasonic pie in 2020.

    MAGA: It's a SNAP
    • Using the Urban Institute’s Analysis of Transfers, Taxes, and Income Security microsimulation model, we estimate how eligibility and benefits would have been affected if the USDA had implemented the changes in 2018. This analysis complements previous USDA and Mathematica analyses of the effects of individual proposed changes.

      If the proposed regulations had been implemented last year, 3.7 million fewer people and 2.1 million fewer households3 would have received SNAP in an average month; annual benefits would have decreased by $4.2 billion. An estimated 2.2 million participating households would no longer be eligible for SNAP and would lose an average of $127 in monthly benefits; 3.1 million others would receive an average of $37 less in benefits a month.

      To be short - idea is to increase forced unemployment to lower rates and find workers for bad jobs.

    More reasons of Sony-Samsung cartel
    • Manufacturing process technology is similar to DRAM, so CIS expansion is usually done in Samsung by using old used DRAM equipment

      This is main Sony reason of joining cartel, as Japanese silicone capabilities are quickly deteriorating and Samsung is huge DRAM manufacturer thst can make sensors very cheap due to saving on equipment (and Sony can't).

      Samsung CIS production capacity is now close to Sony and will soon significantly surpass Sony.

      Sony perfectly know huge dangers of much bigger company who has source of almost free equipment.

      • Samsung's Non-Memory Division revenue breakdown by product: Foundry 41%, CIS 19%, DDI 15%, AP 23%
      • Cumulative growth since 2010: Foundry + 1,053%, CIS +457%, DDI 60%, AP +229%

      • Cumulative growth forecast for 2018-2021: Foundry +63%, CIS +87%, DDI -3%, AP +14%

      Note how it is lack of BGA chips on such old motherboard.

      And it is very good as number of defects is 5-10x times less.

      For lot of chips only reason of BGA usage is due to cheaper packaging (total savings per device can be $2-4).

      Large BGA chips are extremely unreliable because of possible deformation of large area due to heat or impacts, and any BGA chips do not like even small water damage.

      Add here lead free soldering on all modern motherboards that is prone to cracks in soldering balls - and you have tens of billions of damages made due to greed of just few top managers.
