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.

The quality of Chinese products still lacks any modern manufacturing facility.

Many chinese manufacturing facilities are of a higher standard than those in the west.

I agree the US isn't the perfect model but it is light years ahead of that backward place.

Funny how the chinese model seem to attract so many freedom-loving, patriotic and worker-friendly American companies.
