Could iPhone Production Come To USA

Rumors that some iPhones could be made in the USA are swirling after a Japanese business magazine says Apple asked two of the Asian firms that manufacturer their devices in China to look at the possibility of moving some of the production to the US.

President-elect Donald Trump famously said back in January that he wanted the company to build their products in the USA.

Experts say that could lead to an increase in price.

Apple Cuts Fees To Sell Videos

As Apple gets ready to roll out its new TV App, the company is giving companies that provide content a break. Right now Apple takes 30% of the revenue from streaming apps. Now they plan to cut that fee in half to 15%. This may draw more content providers to their platform.

This may lead to price cuts for consumers. Some streaming services actually charge more to use their service on an iPhone or iPad app to make up the cost.

WiFi Cookie Oven: Does Anyone Need One?

Everyone loves a nice, fresh, warm cookie.  A company called SideChef is hoping that you  like the idea so much, you’re willing to pony up $250 bucks for a smart cookie oven.

You use an app to tell the oven what type of cookies you want and it picks the perfect temperature and baking time. You can delay the start of baking several hours, so you can make sure to have warm cookies when you want them.  The oven will even send a picture of your fresh cookies to your phone to let you know they’re ready.  Users can either use their own cookie dough or order prepackaged dough from the company.  On the downside, it only bakes four cookies at a time. And it doesn’t do anything else.

You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.

    Many companies should be manufacturing, or producing some or all of what they make in the U.S. Would it mean an increase in price? Probably! However, if more people had jobs, or had more hours (i.e. not able to get a job that is under 10/20 hours a week…) there would be more revenues to be gained because the populace could afford and be willing to buy more services and goods. One of the reasons that we have so many people in the low to no income bracket, is because large companies such as Apple ‘farm’ the work out overseas where they can get away with paying for cheap and oftentimes lower quality production of what they sell.

    A good example of a ‘middle’ ground for something of this kind of idea is Canada. Every business that has something to sell, has to offer a certain percentage of goods made in Canada. It means that people are have more options for finding work, and greater chances of getting decent pay and hours than what we currently have here in the U.S.

    No, their system is not perfect, but nothing in life is. But at least they work towards their populace having a better chance at finding a job, rather than thousands of people struggling to make ends meet, or worse, impoverished or homeless.
