On Former CEO Woodford ends Olympus takeover battle article (46 comments in total)

photocine: The ego power grab failed?

@Kengee

Actually, first you should google it when making your point when presenting your argument to us.

Second, Jobs use to build Macs and Next computers in the US. Guess what? Everybody complained about the price.

Third, the suicide rate is lower at Foxcon per head then in the US. The suicides were blown out of proportion for what they are.

Fourth, It isn't just Apple who use Foxcon, all computer makers are.

Fifth, why is Apple being demonised when they are Foxcon workers in Foxcon factories? Ah yes the media made the link, after all it isn't newsworthy if the blame lay solely on Foxcon.

Sixth, these are not sweatshops, these factories are the size of cities that have their own shops and cinemas. Apple can't be blamed for the lack of better jobs in China.

Seventh, the huge payouts for suicides by Foxcon for relatives were an incentive for some to commit suicide. One reason why Foxcon lowered the amount they payout.

Retro Joe: If Woodford's failed takeover is related to non-acceptance of so-called whistleblowing what does that say about the ethics of the Japanese? Before I judge, I wonder, what if Woodford wasn't Welch-born and was Japanese? Which is worse? Maybe it's a combination of both. Either way, I hope another camera maker steps in to bolster them financially and wrench control of the books from the crooks still there who were part of the fraud and/or coverup.

Welsh born.

The sensor size diagram should be at actual size no? Otherwise you don't understand how small they actually are.

Tanngrisnir3: What IS it about people who use these 'bridge' cameras that they're so damn afraid of getting close to a subject?

These are great for street photography, not.

Mssimo: Does anyone else hate the guts of the cnet reviewer called Lori Grunin? She just trashed the hell out of this camera on her video review. Let me get some feedback on what you guys think. reviews.cnet.com/digital-cameras/

Cant wait for the dp review to come out!

Oh my god, she is terrible, I just watched a video now as you suggested. I can't get quite worked up anyway since I haven't went to Cnet for my tech news since 2000.

In reply to:

lifelibertyproperty: when are Nikon or Canon coming out with their 4/3rd? I'm tired of all these lame brands.

They probably are, but they are bigger companies with much invested in the current product line. They also can't move as fast as these smaller companies.
