Who is to blame for the dire situation the Japanese electronics industry finds itself in?
“We have been warning people for years, but management are already too old,” Morikawa says. “They just want to survive in their position right now.”
I can’t feel sorry for Japan.
What they blame Apple — one company! — for doing to them, they as a collection of companies did to the U.S. first. In fact, they did worse: We didn’t get even get to supply them with parts. They kept the entire pie for themselves.
Anyway, keep supplying Apple, Japan. It’s just about the only Japanese electronics product people want from your once-dynamic companies these days: Parts.
