Back when Apple was widely being panned by critics for the Foxconn situation, lots of commentators were saying that they'd happily pay extra for a product that was made in the USA. Well, they had their chance with Google's Nexus Q; how did that work out?
And FWIW as of the last financials from Apple, the US accounted for around one-third of total sales.
Let's be honest, the Q had other problems than its price and Made in USA label.
