    Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that one of the existing Mac lines will be manufactured exclusively in the United States next year, making the comments during an exclusive interview with Brian Williams broadcast Thursday night on NBC’s “Rock Center.” Mac fans will have to wait to see which Mac line it will be because Apple, widely known for its secrecy, left it vague.

    “We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” Cook told Williams.

    This announcement comes a week after recent rumors in the blogosphere sparked by iMacs inscribed in the back with “Assembled in USA.”................

    We really need a revitalization of manufacturing here in the US - So hope this starts a trend! And hope that they are well-paying jobs for working class and lower income folks, who need it the most.
