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.

In the last 30 years of the 20th century, US and European companies have shifted their manufacturing plants to the Far East because of prices. It's a fact.
Now the economy is struggling because a multitude of factors, including less industry for sustaining the economy. It's a known fact that it is not the financial markets which give jobs to people or the high tech, highly skilled jobs. It's the unskilled industry.
Car making, electronics, assembly lines.
I think this is a smart move for Google.
IMHO, it is only doing this in order to get some tax cuts.
