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.

So.. If I understand your logic correctly, the best company to buy products from is one that makes more money off of me?

I prefer to buy high quality devices at lower prices and make decisions on purchases on things other than the operating system designier's quarterly profits.

I think he is speaking in terms of morality, as in what is best for everyone and not for an individual who is only concerned for himself. In other words, perhaps your purchase might help create a job for someone who is unemployed.

Besides, I doubt if a American company would make more money, since expenses are higher.

Really? I somehow doubt that. If jobs for Americans were important or simply providing living wages, than the fact that the almost completely useless nexus Q is manufactured created in the US would seem be a significant factor as well.

That is thinking about the economy (or "societal economic morality", whatever) essentially in the terms of broken window fallacy...
