Wishful thinking about Apple

(Advising other people how to spend their money is just silly. But here I go.)

Apple is now the largest corporation in the world. Bigger than oil companies. Bigger than Microsoft or Google. As of Tuesday, Aug. 9, they had $347 billion in the bank.

With their Apple stores, they are already employing quite a few people. Good for them.

What could Apple do with all that money?

I have a suggestion:

Apple should build manufacturing plants in the United States.

In the '90s they actually made quite a few of their computers in the U.S. They could do it again.

You can tell Apple is a little embarrassed that they make everything in China. On all their products, instead of just printing "Made in China" they put "Designed by Apple in California. Made in China." Sure, the design is important, but so is manufacturing.

Stand tall, Apple. Bring those jobs back. You could print on your computers and iPhones . . .

"Designed and made by Apple in California."

That would be nice, wouldn't it?
