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.

How is it good? I mean, for anyone who isn't American.

If you're Chinese, then yeah, maybe it's bad for you. But if you're from the U.S., then obviously it's good that at least *some* of our jobs are coming back that were sent offshore to cheap foreign sweatshops. I just happen to not be Chinese, and quite honestly am getting f***ing sick of everything saying "Made in China" or "Made in Taiwan." Too bad the (North American) company in question is bad enough that I refuse to reward them, even for a breath of fresh air like this.

Your profile lists you as being from the Philippines, which I am not familiar with, but obviously being in that area you most likely have a bias opposite of the people in North America. As for how you feel about it... well, I'm not you, I'm not from where you are, so I really don't care honestly. You keep rooting for what benefits you, and I'll do the same for myself. Is that not how the world works? I'm not saying that it's ideal, but that's just the way it is.
