How long have people been giving warnings to diversify your supply chain and especially to seek production outside of PRC???
It's been years, no-body has bothered to listen.

Sure the science is good and you can make something work in a lab.
Zero chance of it operating well outside of those conditions tho, not with background noise, dodgy connections, people that hold their devices out in front of their face to talk.
You'd just end up with tons of false positives, or you'd have to tune the threshold so low you'd miss out genuine cases.
With such a small number of patients who exactly is going to buy it if the insurance company won't? Maybe a handful of rich folk, probably not even 10.
Cost of bringing a drug to market can be easily $1bn, making a paltry $20m in sales is a pathetic return on that investment.
Hate to be a pedant, but the main issue with Lithium battery fires is putting them out.
Yes petrol/diesel etc catches fire well, but fire crews can put it out and keep it out. Lithium is a pig to put out, and there's every chance it can re-light itself hours later.
I remember a Tesla catching fire after a wreck in LA not too long ago, after being extinguished it re-lit several more times in the junk yard.
Task 2 will straight up get you arrested
Task 3 is effectively impossible unless you can find someone who can't afford the small fee for their prescription. I guess you could hang around a dentist and offer to pay those bills? but again, you'd probably end up talking with the police.
Probably anything other than what they did, because it's been an utter shambles for several years now.
Certain brands have faired significantly better, Toyota has a much more diverse supply chain and Tesla seem to have weathered the storm pretty well.
There definitely needs to be questions asked of some CEO's and the performance of their company over the pandemic period. Clearly some were not up to the task.
If you are going to war with Qualcomm it needs to be done on price and not just performance.
Equal or better performance, 10-20% cheaper and it's stealing market share in a big way.
If that means cutting your own throat in the process, well thats just the price to play when you muscle in on someone elses lunch.
Two problems there tho:
I doubt anyone else went and got a picture of that broken window, and you can see when overlaid it's a match.
Also they copied the files without even bothering to change the names, so files on the original CD ROM appear in the game data with the same names.
