The best laid plans of mice and men huh?

Thick, acrid smog in China, India is MELTING Intel's data center servers

Intel is reporting that its data centers in India and China are suffering from corrosion due to the high levels of smog.

The company's Free Press newsletter details a new set of problems that engineers have had to address at Chipzilla's server farms in Asia, including unusually high levels of corrosion in wiring and circuit board hardware.

Nah, it is ...



...

The Illuminati!!!


Just a reminder, companies here willingly shipped all their old manufacturing equipment there to take advantage of cheaper labor. I wonder how much of that wouldn't pass pollution controls in the U.S.?

From the article:

"The only other times we had seen this level was from known industrial usage segments like inside a factory, not data centers that are supposed to be controlled, sealed-off environments with air conditioning." Gee, what COULD be wrong...

American companies aren't stupid, they outsource their jobs which yields:

1. Much lower wages
2. No unions (no strikes)
3. No OSHA
4. No pollution controls
5. Deadlines are met
6. No retirement packages
7. No medical packages
8. No EEOC

Oh heck no...

When Apple had to make a change on one of their previous product just before release the entire Foxconn/Apple workforce was called in at 10:00PM on the production lines to make the changes...

Something like that happening here?

~Never gonna happen~

Actually manufacturing jobs are moving back to the United States its just due to technology they are hiring less people.

Just once it would be nice to see you post accredited facts to back up your ludicrous statements....

Lets look just at Foxconn and the number of people they employ building American products shall we?

China

Foxconn has 13 factories in nine Chinese cities—more than in any other country.[19]

Foxconn's largest factory worldwide is in Longhua, Shenzhen, where hundreds of thousands of workers (varying counts include 230,000,[18] 300,000,[20] and 450,000[21]) are employed at the Longhua Science & Technology Park, a walled campus[6] sometimes referred to as "Foxconn City"[22] or "iPod City".[23] Covering about 1.16 square miles (3 square km),[24] it includes 15 factories,[22] worker dormitories, a swimming pool,[25] a fire brigade,[6] its own television network (Foxconn TV),[6] and a city centre with a grocery store, bank, restaurants, bookstore, and hospital.[6] While some workers live in surrounding towns and villages, others live and work inside the complex;[26] a quarter of the employees live in the dormitories, and many of them work up to 12 hours a day for 6 days each week.[18] Another of Foxconn's factory "cities" is Zhengzhou Technology Park in Zhengzhou, Henan province, where it is reported 120,000 employees work.[27]

Foxconn continues to expand, and planned factories include sites at Chengdu in Sichuan province and Wuhan in Hubei province.[19]

Yeah, it's amazing when you actually read the article(s):

Quote:
found that 38% of U.S.-based manufacturing executives who responded were shifting production to the U.S. or considering that, up from 18% in a similar survey in February 2012.
*** CONSIDERING ***

Is not the same as actual jobs back here...

Wowee wooowe....

A whole 2,000 jobs back here... meanwhile Foxconn in China created 120,000 jobs... (refer to Post #7)

Quote:
This week Motorola Mobility, owned by Google, became the latest company to bring manufacturing, and hence jobs, back home with plans to open a plant in Texas, the Washington Post reports. The move, which will create around 2,000 jobs
Thanks, Tek, all those search results you posted, Hmmm they all regurgitate the exact same story...
