    K, my diabolical plot. MWUAHAHAHAH

    I think Google could have purchased said "iphone 4g" and tore it apart, looking for specialized/unique components. Then, they could have have gone to manufacturer and purchased, for example, 9 months of production of this specialized/unique component. Then when iphone production would be stalled for at least 9 months, leaving apple fanboys in the fetal position with thumb in mouth. By then, the latest Droid3 with android 2.5 would be out, crushing sales of the iphone 4g...

    uh this sounded mo betta in ma head. cheers :D

    I'm sure if I looked hard enough I could find a flaw with this plan.

    I dare you, nay I double dare you to find a flaw with the plan.


    I predict you will return proclaiming such an evil plan could only have been thought up by the devil himself! or not watvr :D

    Wait... how would the iPhone production be stalled? I think it would've taken Google much more time to look through everything, understand, and then utilize it in an upcoming phone that they haven't even thought of. hehe By all that time, I think the iPhone 4G would already be released or close to release. Did I find a flaw in your plan? Perhaps! :p

    YOU WISH!!!:D

    All Google would have to do is open the open up the iphone 4g and look at the components needed to build the iphone ( e.g. components on circuit board, screen, camera(s), sensors, battery , etc ) and identify any new/unique component.

    For example, lets say since the new iphone has a big hefty battery, apple needed to reduce the size of other components in the case for the battery to fit. They do this by using really itty bitty tiny surface mounted resistors that just hit the market and are only being produced by one company. Google goes to the company and purchases 9 months of their resistor production. Since this company is the only company that produces these SM resistors, apple has to wait 9 months for their resistors OR redesign (delaying launch).

    Google wont copy any functions of the iphone, just throw a monkey wrench into their manufacturing time line.

    Wouldn't Apple though already have an order with that company? I'm just a little confused as to why Apple would be delayed when Google wouldn't exactly know in what device the chip or whatever "thingy" (I am not familiar with the highly technical terms) it would go in but order it. heh

    ok...lil flaw

    If apple's supply chain person hadn't already put an order for the "resistors", then my lil plan would work. Or lets say apple was beginning production in mid june for a july release, and was 1) still haggling over price for this component 2) doing batch ordering ( i mean only have an order for enough phones for say like a month's production )

    Yeah Google could do some digging with the resistor manufacture and see what the deal was.

    For Vihzel:
    iphone consists of A,B,C components. Google sees that component C is new and only manufactured by one company. Google buys 9 months worth of production of component C and puts it in a warehouse in the Mojave, CA and just sits on them. iphones cannot be made because its lacking component C. They can either redesign iphone using component D or wait 9 months.

    Just gives apple another bitching point to claim foul and that another patent was copied. Lol

    When I read what happened with the iphone 4g on gizmodo, I thought of a guest lecturer back in skool. The guest lecturer worked at huge R&D/manufacturing company that designed and built everything for all kinds of companies. He was in the supply chain side of the company, procuring raw material for production.

    So he was working on multiple accounts at the same time when he ran into a dilemma. Company A contracted his company to design and build a product. R&D was complete and production was beginning so he ordered all the material, which included a years worth of production of a certain surface mounted component. Another Company, B, approached his company and wanted them to manufacture their product that was already designed by company B. When he got the parts list, he noticed the product needed that surface mounted component. So he had to tell his boss, which had to tell this company that they had to sit on their design or redesign for immediate production. ( i think it was a GPS hardware that was the size of a quarter that needed the latest small surface mounted component )

    Why do so many people hate those that succeed and support failure?

    Of
    course
    Apple, Microsoft etc dominate the supply chain but without then we would just have other companies doing the same thing.

    I can't understand this meaningless hatred of
    success
