Microsoft-Foxconn Royalty Fight is a Blast From the Past

Microsoft last week sued Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. for failing to pay royalties on intellectual property owned by Microsoft as part of a 2013 deal. Microsoft says Hon Hai, which is also known as Foxconn Technology Group, owes it missed payments and interest. Foxconn’s billionaire chairman Terry Gou earlier this week accused Microsoft of a personal attack on him and his company, terming it a “wrongful” attempt to extract royalties on Android mobile operating software.

Bike sharing pioneer Mobike is retreating to China

In a telling sign of the state of bike sharing, Mobike, a once red-hot startup that attracted billions in investment capital, is closing down all international operations and putting its sole focus on China. On Friday, Mobike laid off its operations teams in APAC, which entailed more than 15 full-time employees and many more contractors and third-party agency staff across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India and Australia. Those affected were told the company will “ramp down” the regional busine...

Chinese workers who assemble the iPhone are literally lining up to quit a major Apple supplier thanks to falling sales

Fewer people are buying new iPhones from Apple than ever before. That's had a knock-on effect on the Chinese factory workers who assemble the iPhone for major Apple supplier Foxconn. According to the South China Morning Post, workers are lining up to resign after seeing a reduction in wages of up to 25% and losing perks, such as free laundry. Foxconn reportedly relies on Apple for about quarter of its business. Apple's declining iPhone sales have had a knock-on effect on the poorly paid facto...

Google Fi – A Transformation of Cell Phone Service

Google Fi is a wonderful new type of cell phone service, and at a wonderfully affordable price. Google has profoundly changed many parts of our world.  Its eponymous search engine, of course.  Its Gmail service, which now dominates the email field the same way Google’s search engine dominates search.  Other things are not so obvious but still important – for example, it “rewrote the book” on how to monetize and advertise on the internet with its Adsense and Adwords programs.One of its new ventur...

Amazon's NYC Retreat Heralds New Era of Corporate Welfare Fights

In Wisconsin, Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn was backing away from promises it made in exchange for billions in incentives. Stoked by Amazon’s decision to turn its search for a new office hub into a nationwide reality show, a long-simmering backlash to corporate subsidies is coming to a boil. State legislators in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois and New York are targeting subsidies to individual companies.

Urban unicorn renewal

Three cities, three dead urban unicorn renewal projects. In just the past few days, we’ve had Foxconn renege on Wisconsin, Amazon renege on NYC, and . Each followed the Anna Karenina principle that every unhappy economic development deal is unhappy in its own way: for Foxconn, it was trade tariffs and slowing iPhone sales; for Amazon, it was populist protests plus the usual NYC corruption; for GE, it was the reality of looking at a mirror and finding that you’re staring at a dumpster fire. Yet,...

When Amazon threw in the towel on the New York City HQ2, it showed the rest of the world how to beat Silicon Valley (AMZN)

Amazon folded on its plans to build HQ2 in New York City — setting a bad precedent for the company itself, and for other tech giants.  Interestingly, HQ2 was generally viewed favorably by New Yorkers and political leaders both. But different groups all had different problems with Amazon and the HQ2 deal, putting lots of little roadblocks in the way.  The key lesson to be learned: It's possible to stop even a giant by Amazon not with overwhelming force, but by presenting enough friction that i...

Why Amazon canceled its plan to build HQ2 in NYC

Boston and NY share high-tech losses as GE and Amazon bail on same day

Boston and New York have been sporting rivals for decades, constantly fighting over bragging rights across all four major sports, but today the two cities had something in common neither was probably hoping for. Both had major tech companies back out of massive deals on the same day. It turns out, however, the two cities lost the deals for entirely different reasons. For NY, Amazon wasn’t pleased with the political greeting it received and decided it wasn’t going to be friendly enough for its...

Did New York lose anything with Amazon’s rejection? It’s complicated.

Now that Amazon has said that it’s taking its ball and going home rather than deal with mean, pushy New Yorkers, outside observers are giving off the sense that the city (and its local politicians) are losing out for their recalcitrance. They’re wrong. New York City is running at about a 4.3% unemployment rate — higher than the national average of 3.9%, but a respectable number for jobs. Amazon’s promise of 25,000 jobs (high-paying jobs) may have reduced that number, but there’s no guarant...

California’s union membership falls to 14-year low

California’s labor movement didn’t have a swell 2018 and shrinking membership could be bad for your wealth, union fan or not. Two blows hit organized labor last year. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states can’t force government workers to pay union dues, and overall membership statewide fell to a 14-year low. Unions here and across the nation are dealing with an increasingly hostile environment for growth. Penny-pinching bosses fight hard against unionized workplaces. And workers, scarred fro...

Delayed, not saved: Foxconn's Wisconsin "factory" announcement is a bid to help Trump save face

After announcing that, inevitably, it wasn't going to build an LCD factory in Wisconsin, and would instead use its $4.1 billion subsidy to build a modest R&D facility employing out-of-state skilled workers; Foxconn reversed itself and promised that the factory was back on. The factory is not back on. LCDs are pure commodities, among the lowest-margin components, and about to be made obsolete by OLEDs. There is zero business-case for building these outside of Asia-Pacific. It was a stunt, i...
