Google "Buried somewhat quietly in the noise of Google's spate of announcements today was an interesting fact: the Nexus Q, Google's new media streamer and first self-built consumer hardware, is being manufactured in the United States." Just getting their toes wet, for sure, but it's interesting it's Google making the first attempt to bring back production to the west. I won't comment on whether or not production should move back in the first place, but in all honesty, I expected Apple to be the one to make the first move here.

China had a price growth of 12% per year the last fwe year, that is the reason why China isn't as cheap anymore. Also the oil prices make transport more expensive. So that is why you see some more manufacturing being done again in the US and Europe.
