Apple could've saved $765,000 had they stapled, instead of string binding, the booklet.

I should work for them, help them cut a few corners here and there.

And that booklet could've been made at Kinko's for about a quarter of the price they paid.

yeah, but then it would feel like a shitty kinko's booklet, and not the quality you'd expect when you buy a $1300 watch.

It's faster to pour glass.


In any case, Apple has created new processes before. People said manufacturing unibody aluminum at scale was impossible...until Apple did it.

It's not impossible, it's just not cost-effective for most companies.

I think that's VDI's point. A quarter million CNC machines would be expensive, and conventional wisdom says a company would never purchase that many. But following conventional wisdom didn't get Apple where they are today.
