Apple CEO confirms company will begin manufacturing one line of computers in the United States
NBC released a clip from tonight's Rock Center with Brian Williams, wherein Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, confirms the company will begin manufacturing one of its existing Mac lines in the United States starting next year.
When Williams asks Cook what producing iPhones in the United States would do to the price, Cook avoids answering the question directly. Instead he says, "Honestly it's not so much about price, it's about the skills, etc."
We can save debating the skillset of the U.S. manufacturing workforce for another day, but it's worth remembering that the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has frequently supported the idea that Apple could bring its manufacturing back to the United States with little to no negative impact to the consumer. It seems Apple may have realized the same thing.
