Hon Hai's Gou urges Ma to remain decisive....
http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/national/n...

{This Article said, "Yesterday, Hsuan urged Ma to work harder in his second term to make Taiwan's economic achievements “palpable” to all.

“The government is like a company. If you can't inspire your workers, you'll have a hard time running your company,” he said."

Oh please.... TAIWANESE GOVERNMENT is not exactly 100% like a COMPANY because we have something called, "FLAWED DEMOCRACY" even if it's not a FULL-FLEDGED DEMOCRACY yet! Come on.... Are our TAIWANESE PEOPLE going to starts to jump off buildings now? That's if Mr. Terry Guo starts to run our ROC TAIWAN a bit too much like one of his FOXCONN FACTORY in CHINA....

True, but those ROBOTS have a thirst for ENERGY like no others, which is WHY that JAPAN have lots of NUCLEAR ENERGY GENERATORS to power them! Of course, they will break down and will need our ENGINEERS to fix them or even design NEW ONES for SPECIAL TASKS that is needed by our MANUFACTURING and FACTORY BOSSES!! ;-)}

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/06/htc-...

Cher Wang's HTC is LOSING SALES to SAMSUNG! Her problem isn't just FTAs! Her REAL problems is that HTC had been CLUELESS on how to run a PRODUCT >>BRAND<< COMPANY! If it was a TECH/MANUFACTURING, it would okay, but it wasn't that! It is a PRODUCT >>BRAND<< COMPANY!! >=(

Let me tell YOU a true story! Long ago, there is company called, "EPSON"! They made BEST Dot-Matrix Printer in our Earthly world!! ;-)

Dot-Matrix Printer....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dot_matrix_print...

Then, come a CHALLENGER! This CHALLENGER does not make NEARLY as good Dot-Matrix Printer as EPSON! However, they have a SECRET WEAPON! Their MARKETING and ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS is superior! They managed to convince MASS CONSUMERS in PERCEPTION that their PRODUCTS is better than EPSON! That's right that they become WINNER of Dot-Matrix Printer WARS! However, knowing that they can't fool MASS CONSUMERS all the time, they invest heavily into having BEST Laser Printer and are mostly UNCHALLENGED as BEST PRINTER COMPANY in both TECH and MARKETING/ADVERTISING later on into LASER PRINTER ERA!!=/
