Allowing external forces to decide what a healthy / acceptable profit margin can be is the surest way to destroy capital investment by businesses.
True but no business operates in a vacuum. External forces also include the rules, as setup by governments as well as public perception about how the product you are selling them is being made.
It would be no surprise that Foxcon is being a bit disingenuous about their assessment. The cost of manufacturing items in China will eventually to go up as the living standards of Chinese workers goes up and their labour and environmental laws tighten. This is good for everyone and should help balance the overall picture.
I'm glad they're employing smart people on pie in the sky stuff instead of making a profit. They'd eventually fail anyway, might as well do something interesting first.
I guess that's the silver lining. Maybe we'll see a bunch of new startups sprout up out of that Uber experience.

They didn't bat an eyelash when it came to screwing over the cabbies and now... where's my violin?
I genuinely wonder exactly how much Apple cares about the creative segment anymore.

Yes, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Whoever wrote this is (willfully or otherwise) ignorant of the driving conditions on UK motorways. Driving at 60mph is basically impossible - you either have to get in the slow line behind the lorries and go slower, or get in the middle or fast lane and drive ~80mph. Yes, the speed limit is technically 70mph. In most part of the country, nobody gives a crap.
So the range is nearly irrelevant; the car is unsuitable for motorway driving so you won't be taking it any distance at all.
That's not true... I watch Top Gear and everyone in the UK drives a supercar (sideways) on empty roads in the Lake District. To be fair you have to watch out for constantly crashing caravans though.
If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
