Apple "Apple may be taking some of the burden of assembling the new iMac off Chinese supply partners by performing parts of assembly in the U.S., as a number of newly-purchased standard units are showing an 'Assembled in USA' notation usually reserved for made-to-order machines." Cool. You'd think we'd have more information on this than the article contains, but alas.

I can't argue with that but for the majority of the world "Made in the U.S" doesn't mean much.

Hey, I can't say much, because really... even here it doesn't mean much. Hardly anything worthwhile has the "Made in the U.S" logo on it. But at least it's actually "made" here, when most of the time it's just all made in other countries.

Heh, it's been like that since I was wee lad so I think your'e in for some disappointment.

Yeah, I agree--because in reality, it's been this way to some extent ever since I was a kid too. It's only getting worse. And honestly, I don't have anything good to say about my country when it comes to it actually innovating and producing goods. It could easily do it... but no, let's hand it off to other countries, for less money. That seems to be the American way.

Hey, exactly what I felt reading this news item ;)

Then I guess we have something in common. ;)
