It's not wages. The US manufacturing infrastructure is gone, manufacturing skill is gone, people aren't be trained in sufficient quantity to bring these jobs back. Most education is now focused on business and finance degrees -- worthless. US industry for the most part makes money, not products.
Wonderful piece.
It perhaps could build the factories in the US, but they'd have to bring Chinese workers here to do the actual work. The US does not have trained workers; we graduate MBA's and bankers and financial advisors not folks who can make stuff. And who's going to train enough tool and die makers and build tool and die factories to build the components that go into the iDevices?    Where is Apple going to find skilled high school students who will eventually learn the engineering...
Keynote already beats PowerPoint, but neither Pages nor Numbers have the power of Word or Excel. Apple needs to bring these productions up a couple of notches in power. If they leave the bloatness and bugs that MS puts into their products, Apple could have strong winners.
Make no sense to tighten down on Apple security in the US, when it is the folks in China doing the leaking. Idiotic, instead. 
What is Apple's and Samsung's contract? Can Samsung unilaterally breach the contract with Apple? Didn't Apple pour money into Samsung just so it could build Apple products? Depending on these answers, this action could the start of lawsuits of death between these companies.
Correct, of course.    Instead of these Apple products, think vehicles. SMART car, electric, hybrid, medium size car, mini-van, van, pickup truck, motorcycle, power boat. Certainly, there will be some price comparisons among these options to understand the function/price ratio, but someone who needs a pickup will not care a wit about the cost of the other vehicle types. 
It needs to be a speed update, like A6 also. The new iPad is no faster than the iPad 2 because of the cycles needed to handle the retina display. A lightning connector only change will make little sense if the 2013 iPad version would be 3-4 months out after XMas. 
I hope iBooks 3 will support more advanced ePub. Mention was made recently that the ePub protocol was being updated to handle math. Math and other technical symbols used in science are not well supported by any eReader protocol, leaving such books unavailable for eBooks.    Given the push for using tablets in schools, and the push for better STEM education, it's important that publishers be able to offer such eBooks. iBooksAuthor likewise will have to be upgraded to...
I owned MOT for a number of years, but saw it's design and innovation in the phone area and chip area lackluster. It wasn't just that the stock was going nowhere (I invest for the long term), it didn't see MOT having any future but some aging IP. The $12.5B Google put out to purchase MOT was too high but I expected GOOG to revive MOT to recoup their purchase price. Not what happened.   If you recall, MOT was the designer and supplier of the G3/G4 and promised G5 Apple was...
