Google Tries Something Retro: Made in the USA via NY Times

4 Jul

Happy 4th of July everyone!

I hope all of you are enjoying a good BBQ right now.  Right now I’ve got some steaks on the grill and Independence Day (starring Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith) on the TV.

As some extra Independence Day reading, check out this article from the New York Times if you missed it last week:

With its Nexus Q, Google is the first major electronics company to bring manufacturing back to the US.

The Google executives and engineers who decided to build the player here are engaged in an experiment in American manufacturing. “We’ve been absent for so long, we decided, ‘Why don’t we try it and see what happens?’ ”
