So if they pay $450 a month to build phones Apple should have plenty of room to pay more and still make billions selling phones for $800

They do, I read Apple has 1.4 trillion in cash off shore just sitting, but why would they want to pay more for labor?

Apple and other corporations aren't "stupid"...   if the US wants to double tax them - they will let it sit or use it elsewhere. 

One of the main targets of tax reform is those Trillions sitting in offshore accounts.

Why would they?

If you can make more money by having the phones made in Bangladesh or Vietnam, why make them here?

This is interesting...   especially if you drive on 75 up in Oakland County.

Maybe in a hundred years the driverless vehicle thing might pan out but I don't see it happening any sooner.  reason being is the idiots that already inhabit the road aren't going to repsect a driverless automobile at all.  They don't have any respect or courtesy for other drivers now

I, for one, don't want to be tooling down the e-way and look over and see a car with no driver, that would freak me out.

IMO, automakers need to stay focused on fuel efficiency and not driverless cars.  Fuel prices will climb back up, only a matter of time and then the 'guzzlers' won't be worth shitte again.

For me, they ain't worth shitte now.

I'm sure there will be more than a few 'drivers' who initially make a sport out of dodging over or pulling up behind these vehicles...   probably some more ideas I haven't thought of...

but I also be that once these same 'drivers' realize that these vehicles are video recording everything that goes on around them they'll figure out that the fines and point on their licenses just aren't worth all the effort :o :o :o
