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.

Google can take the chance since it mostly makes money from ads. Apple needs the high profit margins from its hardware sales.

Thanks you, thank you, I'll be here all night.

Also, with more affordable devices, Apple has a larger market for content. Google's still taking baby steps in that segment.
