PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In the US wireless market, AT&T is currently attempting to buy T-Mobile to create one heck of a behemoth wireless provider. While earlier this week the US government already filed a lawsuit to block the merger, citing antitrust concerns, US carrier Sprint has now also filed a lawsuit to block the merger.

(sorry for the slightly off-topic comment)

And after an IPO companies usually stop looking at the longterm. Only shortterm profits.

By then, they are a lot more likely to get a CEO who doesn't own a large part of the company so he/she cares less about what happends to the company in a few years just getting the bonusses.

When looking at the short term, this means moving parts of the company to lower wager countries or outsourcing.

When the company starts outsourcing the production of their core products they will loose all ability to "innovate" because they will loose all knowledge of how the produce the products.

I think the system isn't perfect yet. ;-)
