    I see a bunch of press from January saying they were going to start assembling some TVs in Detroit in March, but no indication ANYWHERE that they've actually begun doing that.

    Their web site is completely mum on the subject.

    Are they in fact "assembling" TVs in the US or aren't they?

    (I hope everyone realizes that just about all the components would still be MANUFACTURED overseas.)

    Uh thanks; I like to think I'm okay. :)

    Nah, it's not that at all. They figured out that manufacturing most devices in the US would add only a few dollars to the labor cost. The problem is one of inertia and supply -- all the subcomponents are already being manufactured nearby in China. Low labor cost MAY have been the initial carrot in getting companies to START assembling/manufacturing there, but the real reason we're stuck there is because everybody already moved there!

    But I was paraphrasing, like, actual studies and shit. It wasn't an opinion.

    I can see we have some American hating assholes on the website.
    Are you guys, Kanye West Mathew T, Muslims or maybe work for the Chinese?
    Or are you just immature morons?
