Off-topc from President Obama State of Union thread

Though he didn't mention which line of computers would be made in the U.S., rumors said Apple would begin manufacturing of the Mac mini there, bringing some 200 jobs to the country.

From President Obama's yearly State of the Union speech:
Tim Cook attended the State of the Union, sitting in the First Lady's box -- a frequent location for guests who are mentioned in the President's speech. He sat behind and to the side of the First Lady, just behind the Second Lady, Dr. Jill Biden.

Note: Due to the inevitable political nature of the discussion regarding this topic, the discussion thread is located in our Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum.

I've been coming to this site for years and feel slighted that this picture sports the fox "news" logo.

I find the most fascinating part of this story to be the precise details of where Tim is sitting.

Obama had Tim Cook there because he needs Siri to help the community agitator find those not paying their fair share...

Siri: "I have found thousands of thousands of people not paying their fair share, 535 are right in front of you, dumba$$!"

I feel as if Obama is giving a little too much credit to Apple but hey they can at least say they're bringing something back to the US.

On the other hand, I bet Fox News is going to have a field day with this.

The SOTU newsfeed is a pool feed. Olsen just likes to watch Faux news.

With that. I'm guessing the Mac Pro will be built about 25 miles from my home.
