Apple would be great if they'd bring manufacturing back to the U.S.

He hasn't exactly been paying attention to what Apple's been up to: catering to enterprise clients means being hamstrung like Microsoft, forced to try to add on functionality while maintaining compatibility; the openness he asks for with consumers gives their competitors a few inches they otherwise wouldn't have, and doesn't dampen sales much at all. They're more than happy to sell to business, but only on their own terms, which means by way of demand from employees for Apple products. Why have multiple divisions / product lines when they've shown it to be unnecessary for their own ends? The insane focus of the tech press on market share misses the fact that, even with products having a smaller market share, Apple usually makes far more money than their competitors in that area. It's almost as if they've convinced themselves that market share always trumps actual $ in hand. And with $100 billion in hand (we'll find out how much more they have later this month), they have plenty of reason to thumb their noses at the demands of MBAs to be like everyone else.

I'd like to see a world where comics are drawn in detail and not stick figures.

No reason you can't have both.
Sadly, most people that can write can't draw,
and the people that can draw simply aren't funny.

There are exceptions.

...except that Apple never got rid of their US assembly lines in the first place. On small, light objects, the cost savings from Chinese assembly more than offset the cost of air freight - on big, heavy professional towers and rack mounted servers, not so much.

They have an assembly line in Elk Grove (near Sacramento), California, and apparently another in Texas. The Elk Grove line's been around for at least a decade, and quite possibly all the way back to the late '70s. The Texas one, I'm not sure about. Anyway, those lines churn out some portion of their Mac Pro towers, and when they were making the Xserve rack mounts, apparently those as well.

Christ, another Ted Talk. If your name is not Salman Khan or Neil deGrasse Tyson, you get sixty seconds.
