Rather a sensational headline. Apple is only one of the major customers, and many other companies are being affected by this and similar shutdowns. Apple and Sony having to wait isn't going to hurt much, despite some economic ripples, especially with other, bigger companies, but there's nothing that can be done when parts aren't reaching their destinations and or structures are being damaged and people getting hurt.
