Chipmakers still shoveling cash into new fabs as demand slows

Not for next week

Since fabs can take a long time to build and commission, companies have to be thinking years into the future. A more informative article would have information on why companies think it's a good idea to be investing in capital equipment that will come into use in 2025-2027. Is the fad with car makers to have an ever increasing supply of computer controlled features going to continue (god, I hope not)? Is the progression from large screen devices going to continue to go smaller than the smart watch and really tiny scale electronics need to get even more tiny?

I can't see how people will stare at a phone screen all day. My next round of monitor purchases for the desktop are going to be larger and I haven't ruled out going with more than two. Sucks to get old.
