Re: [newtech-1] Apple - Made in the USA

The guess is new Mac Pros or iMacs at this point.

Like Steve Jobs pointed out, the US doesn't have enough basic engineers to run the floors. 

"Apple had 700,000 factory workers employed in China, [Jobs] said, and that was because it needed 30,000 engineers on-site to support those workers. 'You can't find that many in America to hire,' he said. These factory engineers did not have to be PhDs or geniuses; they simply needed to have basic engineering skills for manufacturing. Tech schools, community colleges or trade schools could train them. 'If you could educate these engineers,' he said, 'we could move more manufacturing plants here.' The argument made a strong impression on the president. Two or three times over the next month he told his aides, 'We've got to find ways to train those 30,000 manufacturing engineers that Jobs told us about.'"

I wish more US students would be engineers but they prefer to be communications majors it seems.

Very few humans will be needed. If at all. The robots won out awhile ago. At this point it's as cheap to assemble in Indiana as it is in China. There is no dollar difference anymore. Welcome to World 2.0.
