Also, Samsung was directly mentioned by Governor Romney.
Just shows how well Apple is doing.
Apple is the most well known case of outsourcing. Mainly cause of Foxconn controversy.
Like it or not outsourcing has been one of the reasons that Apple is able to sustain such amazing profitability. I think all of us have enjoyed watching Apple grow into one of the richest companies in the world so outsourcing can provide positive results in some cases.
Yea, I agree. But I also agree outsourcing has turned into an out of control monster. I can't even call my cable company CS without speaking to someone who is overseas somewhere in India.
Honestly I can understand Indian phone support better than Ammmeeeerican phone support.
You guys need to stop mumbling or use louder phones.
There won't be anymore outsourcing when the dollar collapses. American labor will be the cheapest in the world.
One word: ubiquitous
You are aware,that Apple coud easily produce here in America, and not suffer badly at all.
Not at all. I find it actually quite sickening to see a company like Aople not contributing to the county it owes its success to.
How do you figure? Americans aren't going to work for $1.50-$2 an hour, and i cant see them making minimum wage but greatly out producing their Chinese counterparts.
Apple' iphone 5 may single handedly increase US GDP by 0.5% and Apple supports a half million jobs in the US.
Sure, if someone would build all those component factories right next door, sometimes even on speculation.
People focus on labor costs, but that's the least of the reasons why Apple has China building their gear.

There are only 18000 people working for Appel in America.
Using iOS developers as part of the number of jobs Apple craved is publicity pr fluff.
Why would any serious business manufacture in America? Price would increase and quality would decrease. It would be a disaster.
No, the only thing that would decrease slightly is PROFIT margin.
Labour costs being the reason of higher prices is a myth.
And why would a business willingly accept a smaller profit margin?
That's why companies who outsource should be penalized, and throw who don't, rewarded. Force them to contribute to the infrastructure of the country they owe their success to.
I agree, but in the meantime it's hard to put blame on players in a broken game.
Apple increasingly owes its success to consumers outside the USA buying its products.
Apple makes it pretty clear how the breakdown is worked out.
And then there are all the extra jobs that those jobs support, which Apple doesn't count.
That's right, increasingly.
But it owes its success and the fact they are even still in business, on its North American market.
