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.

well, that's in fact the truth.
This product is not expected to sell wildly. It's kind of a "presence" product, just to put something against the Applet iTV. But there's no focus on this product. So the "manufacture in US" is mere P.R. It may even attract a few more buyers than it deserves.

Sure, if the Q needs to be sold like crazy worldwide, the "manufactured in US" tag will quietly disappear...
