Today's email takes a deep dive into Foxconn's Sharp acquisition. We discuss some of the history leading up to the deal, why Foxconn has been interested in Sharp for years, and implications on Apple. Next, we discuss one takeaway from Foxconn/Sharp that has nothing to do with display technology but instead with Foxconn's motivation. I'm becoming increasingly confident that Foxconn is going to be a big player in the auto industry. The email concludes with a look at Twitter winning digital streaming rights to 10 NFL Thursday night games. We discuss why I'm hesitant in thinking this deal means a whole lot for the future of live sports.
