Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

"Made in the USA" is a minus, not plus. It only increases production cost. I really don't care if it's going to be shipped from USA or China, both are half a world away from here.

But if it's keeping people in your country in work, rather than having their jobs sent overseas, it should be worth paying a little extra.

"Made in the US" does not keep the people in my country in work.

That only works if you are from the US.
I'm sure people getting those jobs overseas don't agree with you, and everyone else only care about the price tag.

Considering Google is a US based company I guess US citizens should appreciate that, but the thing is the US market is not that big compared to the rest of the world.

That is essentially not far from broken window fallacy (scary how undoubtedly many people subscribe to it) - let's do something in a way which isn't most efficient, which limits the appeal of the product (if only via higher price), which isn't about excelling in something & figuring out how to do that (drawing customers that way) ...no, it's about keeping people in work.
