the Patriots game?
Oh, just looking to break it up a little, and cool folks down.
Few of us REALLY care where any of the tech or not tech stuff is made, all we want is it to work, be cool and be available.
Would it be nice if Apple and others made these items here yes. But my guess is, if we are the workers, we'll be making what, $15.00 - $22.00 per hour, have a 15 minute break each 3 hours, a lunch hour and 2 unpaid breaks. We'd likely make about 200 or so units per day, and NOBODY would get an iPhone or and other idevice in the given year that you ordered it.
Look, ask my friends, it pisses me off to no end, that damn near everything we use here in America is made somewhere else. In my business, we are often asked if we can get "That item" made in America, and if so, how much does it cost. When we give them the price, they almost always go with the cheaper unit, made elsewhere. (9 out of 10 pay the cheaper stuff), not to mention, I often have to tell them, NO, I can't find one of these "Made in America". This same subject matter holds true for folks asking if that items is available as an "Eco Friendly version". Most often the answer is Yes, but once they get the costs for both, they decide on the "regular" style for now.
Both of the above are changing (Oh, did I mention most of the "Eco Friendly" stuff, is made overseas, how eco friendly is that?)
Costs are coming down, (a lot of companies have these items on "Close-out", because folks won't pay the original price) Sorry I'm going off-track.
