Apple So, Apple is serious about this thing. Tim Cook has said in an interview the company plans to manufacture one line of Macs in the US, starting next year. Coincidentally (or not?), Foxconn has just announced it plans to expand its production facilities... Into the United States. There's no indication as of yet that the two are linked, but the coincidence is at least interesting.

Someone's finally putting all the laid off employees to good use! With Apple's margins, they should be able to afford it without raising prices. We'll see though.


That said, did it bother anyone else that in the interview he said the problem with domestic manufacturing isn't about costs, but lack of skills? Manufacturing companies have been laying off the skilled domestic workforce for years in favor of much cheaper labor.
