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.

It's the unskilled industry.
Car making, electronics, assembly lines.


Perhaps it not what you meant but do you really think Car making is unskilled? R&D, quality management, Design, Systems engineering, Robotics, Materials engineering etc etc.

Seems a lot more skilled than say banking to me.
