The most salient point in the article and clearly the author is proffering this bizarre notion that Apple cannot compete in a market they themselves created.
Apple is cast as Goliath, but let’s be clear, this American company is on a trajectory to bring manufacturing back on US soil; select locales and products are being analyzed right now. So big-picture view makes your piece look myopic.
Secondly, Samsung is formidable. But they’re a typical ruthless Asian company who has been ripping off American goods ever since US manufacturing became theirs. Same goes for China, only they’re digging a little deeper, using Google as the foil.
The day Apple renews its commitment to restore manufacturing in America will be a triumphant day for these United States.
Who will be awarded the first contract? My sense is, a small business owner with fewer than two-hundred employees who care more about each other than the work they do together will become the catalyst that fuels a campaign to reclaim our place at the head of the table; to begin making things the world can’t live without.
One day the profits from Apple Apparel alone, will exceed all of Korea’s GDP.
Wave after wave of factories will go out around the Orient, like incandescent bulbs. * Poof *
