So this isn't really cyborg-related, but it's super awesome.  There are 
some epic robots in those factories, including a super sweet many-headed 
pick and place, a solid gold wire bonding machine, and tons of more 
traditional industrial movement machines like carts-on-tracks, etc.  The 
funny thing is to think that at the end, customers pay like $10 for a 
memory card.  Clearly they must sell *enormous* quantities of those 
things in order to afford the capital cost of those factories... 
capitalism is a stunning thing.
