I couldn't care less about where it was assembled. The parts are still made in China, which is where the quality is real labor comes from. I'll be impressed if they open up actual factories here in the US, and stop using Ireland to funnel cheaper tax rates.

I'm sure this is directed to all large multi-national companies and not just Apple, right? Or is the old adage, "Haters going to hate." in full effect here?

I get so sick of hearing how this and that will save us billions of dollars, when in fact all its doing is lining the pockets of some politician, lobbyist and a private interest group.

Why don't they just focus on cutting all funding for Homeland security? It seems that every terrorist plot has been foiled by the average passenger so far. How much money would that save us??? Plus you would get the added benefit of some dude not touching your "special place" when you travel and opt out of the porno scanners.
