Just remember when you are buying all those new Apple products you are supporting high tech manufacturing in China. All Apple products are made by Foxxcon. See: http://www.foxconn.com/CompanyIntro.html
It's not low tech operation, like making sneakers with child labor, it's the latest CAD, automated assembly and test. Apple once made its products in Fremont, CA. It closed, sold the fab lines and contracted the job out to Foxconn. Apple and other high tech companies could chose to make products here, but they don't. Some argue because of automation the argument of cheap labor overseas is not a valid argument. America is loosing, big time.
