You ask great questions @vrs400. Adding onto the sustainability question, I also wonder if this is why so many companies have been moving manufacturing for fear of quick collapse? Can anyone give an example of a 'Made in the USA' success story?

It comes back to fair wages argument and the "for how long?" question. The made in the USA thing might be a good short term boost for the company and American jobs, but is it sustainable? Will the devices be even more subsidized by carriers?

Hannah, - The problem with this used to be the likely cost after producing in America which would make the selling price impossible. Looks like Apple has grown efficient production methods that will beat the cost savings of out-sourcing to China. I wonder if we'll some day have 'Apple made in China' and 'Apple Made in USA' versions. Further building on the class characteristic of Apple products.

Well I also feel so becasue the name and the financial backup will prove good and the market share too will be something which will be aboost. According to my knowledge US holds the most risk takers when it comes for technology. So why not go for something under the tag made in USA.

To take the devil's advocate position; this sounds like protectionism to me. What will the prices of these phones be with minimum wage requirements? And will "made in America" actually be "made in America*"

I think this sounds like a brilliant plan. I love the idea of an American-made iPhone! It gives a sense of security that if something needs to be added, changed to the iPhone, it can be done just a few blocks away. I'm surprised it hasn't yet been done.

@ taimoor

The answer to your question of interest of malware developers in MAC lies in the WSJ's assertion that the household income of MAC users is a third more than the other platform users. This makes the attack on these systems likely to bring more return to the malware developers.

"For the next several months I maintained a list of the cracks that resulted. You could list them on one Web page, then. Innocent days."

:D

I think somehow Apple has benefited from its silence. I wont call the statement on their website (before being removed), a fame-attracting claim. It was just ensuring completeness of qualities of the product. Just that the wordings were a bit exaggerated. Coming on media or making a press release is what makes the challenge laughable.

Nice link to the Titanic example. The mindset of Apple management and Titanic owners was much of the same before Apple changed its wording. I would appreciate Apple if it incorporated its own antivirus pre-built in its OS and then claim that it is invincible. That would make more sense.
