Foxconn has large factories in China and Mexico, and very likely will open a plant in Brazil. Last time I checked, neither Mexico nor Brazil were reachable by rail from Asian suppliers. If it can be done there, it can be done here.
Yes, they got concessions in Alabama and Texas and Kentucky. They've also, as I said, created thousands of jobs, which in turn have been a major boon to the local economies. Ask the governors involved why they fought so hard to get them to build in their states, and if they'd do it again. Oh, and that was a very nice attempt to switch attention from your "massive government bailout" mistake. Didn't work, of course. But nice try. And, "You're argument fails..."? That would...
It's not just "manufacturing" jobs. It's engineering and technical jobs, which translates into engineering and technical expertise. And if we let that go overseas, we're in deep trouble. Because then it's extremely likely that the next Jobs and Gates will be named Mu Li and Siddharth Rajam...
Nope. Read the original post: "If Hyundai and Honda and Toyota can build cars here in the US -- and make a profit doing so -- then Apple could build computers here and do the same." Now, did we give Hyundai and Honda and Toyota a massive government bailout? Let's see... that would be... No. In the future, it might help if you learned to read for comprehension so you can make a sound and well-reasoned argument... and not look like an idiot. I mean, that sort of thing is...
You realize that the two sentences above, coupled with your inability to properly spell and use a simple four letter word, speaks volumes about your probable education level and worldview? Turn off Fox and try reading an actual book.
To repeat a previous reply, the automotive plants I mentioned are all highly automated, and still manage to employ hundreds of people each, and they do it here in the US. Those people, in turn, support and help maintain many local businesses buying groceries, clothing, furniture and appliances, by going out to restaurants, and so on. They buy homes. They pay local and state and property taxes, which, in addition to the factory itself, could have a major impact on the...

They buy homes and pay local and state and property taxes. Spillover effects, indeed. Apple is one of the companies lobbying for a corporate tax "holiday" in which to...
Campus? How about taking some of that money you're sitting on and build manufacturing plants and facilities here in the US? They're having problems building enough phones and pads and airs anyway. Why not make them here in modern, highly automated facilities? Why is it Apple can make a billion dollar commitment to Sharp to build a plant, but does nothing here? If Hyundai and Honda and Toyota can build cars here in the US -- and make a profit doing so -- then Apple...
It's thin enough. Hey, I have an idea! Keep the iPad 2 the same size, and fill it with a lighter battery that gives it 18-20 hours of battery life. Steve is always in love with thin, but often forgets that people outside of an office would like to use his wonderful toys for more than a few (okay, ten) hours a day.
I suspect it will be locked down pretty tight. At $250, they have to be subsidizing it in hope of gaining future book and media sales. Selling a device that can have all of the Amazon ties removed just to become an el-cheapo Android tablet... well, they're going to frown on that.
