Maccast Members 201 – As American As…

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 201. Recently in the news there has been discussion about the idea of Apple bringing more of it’s manufacturing back to the United States. Many items being written and talked about seem to be narrowly focused in on a single data point while ignoring what Apple has said their position is and while not considering the more nuanced issues. In this episode I try to separate the facts from opinions and also point out some of the things Apple has said publicly on the topic.
