Apple vs. Qualcomm legal battle daughter of the difficult relationships between the CEO | WSJ
Sometimes, the nerves stretched between two companies may be the mirror of the hostile relations between the respective CEO. This is, apparently, the case of Qualcomm and Apple: the Wall Street Journal has published an article in which he tries to reconstruct the puzzle of a convoluted legal battle still in progress (the last of the "match" ended in a useless draw) starting your own by Steve Mollenkopf and Tim Cook.
The two, apparently, just can't see being too different temperamentally, politically, aziendalmente. (Also) for this reason, it is coming less and less trust between the two (including the CEO earlier Paul Jacobs and Steve Jobs, the situation was different), had led to fears reciprocal to the other party the same plotting against. And' the case of the climb of Broadcom, attempted in 2017 to acquire Qualcomm's then blocked by Trump to march 2018, and subsequently nuanced: according to Mollenkopf, behind this hostile there was Apple, and this conviction led him to treat the company from Cupertino with even greater detachment.
The impact of this long-standing legal battle are obvious: we lose Qualcomm, with a market value plunged 25% from 2017 to today; and we lose of course, also Apple, in addition to the millions of dollars spent on lawyers and legal issues (but this applies to Qualcomm) has had to withdraw due to the sale of its smartphones for a certain period (see the case of China) and she finds herself without one of the main suppliers. The main risks are to you today is about the modem, 5G, Mollenkopf, despite everything, continues to offer to Cook | Qualcomm: if Apple wants to our modem 5G knows where to call | but it is unlikely the Cupertino company will purchase, by referring rather to other manufacturers - Samsung, Intel and MediaTek among these. The danger (concrete) is that Apple is a late arrival on the market with the iPhone compatible with the new standard, also considered the delays in this sense, Intel, and the lack of conviction to rely on other suppliers for reasons of market and quality.The iPhone more powerful than ever with the design of the most classic ever?
