http://www.thevarguy.com – Is Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) ready to lead a new IT Built-in-America movement? The computer maker’s chief exec Tim Cook made big headlines on Thursday when, in a Bloomberg Businessweek interview, he disclosed that Apple will earmark $100 million to bring some Mac production now handled overseas back to the United States in 2013. “We’ve been working on this for a long time, and we were getting closer to it,” Cook said. “It will happen in 2013. We’re really proud of it. We could have quickly maybe done just assembly, but it’s broader because we wanted to do something more substantial. (IT news)
