The death of Micron Technology's CEO during a solo flight in a hard-to-handle aircraft symbolizes the risky memory chip market that is the company's bread and butter.
Simply put, the chipmaker is a U.S. based manufacturing colossus, as this quick overview of its operations should make clear.
Company announces a restructuring of its memory operations. Move comes on the heels of quarterly loss and news that Micron was cutting executive pay.
Behind the popularity of the iPad and iPhone are hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs overseas. Can more of these jobs be created and maintained here in the U.S.?
Hot on the heels of a similar announcement by Samsung, Micron says that its drive will be available for consumer use in March.
