Expect most of the payout to vanish into nasty pocketses, and layoffs to follow soon...

Am sure they have noted your opinion. And am sure Microsoft , Apple, Sony and Nintendo amongst others have noticed too.

I mean, look at the crappy products they assemble for some loser IT companies

Foxconn is primarily a contract manufacturer and its clients include major Chinese, American, Finnish, Japanese, and Canadian electronics and information technology companies. [,B] Notable products that the company manufactures include the BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone, Kindle, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nokia and Wii U.[/B]
They are in the top 5 IT companies of the world wrt revenue. And they can't make a decent motherboard!

Let's build an idiot list of companies who regularly deal with them....a kind of wall of shame :

Acer Inc., Amazon.com , Apple Inc. ,BlackBerry Ltd. , Cisco, Dell , Google ,Hewlett-Packard ,Huawei ,Microsoft ,Motorola Mobility ,InFocus ,Nintendo ,Nokia ,Sony ,Toshiba ,Xiaomi ,Vizio

These misinformed fools don't seem to notice the crap motherboards

When I think of Sharp I am reminded of their Sharp Elsimate calculators.

Oh how I hated school.

I remember when calculators first came to SA - Casio and Sharp were the big guns ...... bit like the Apple and Samsung smart phone thing today

Casio Fx-82 I think it was called was the clear winner though in terms of market share for secondary school. I had a programmable sharp, so solving quadratics and the like was easy.
