Apple TV: Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.
Google Nexus Q: Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.
I think I will take the latter.
I was overjoyed to read the other day that Google, unlike Apple, has decided to actually hire members of our extended American family to manufacture their new streaming media player. At $300, it’s more expensive than Apple TV or Roku. But the Nexus Q has more features than those products; for example it has a built-in 25 watt-per-channel sound amplifier that can run two sets of speakers. But its biggest selling point for me is that made on our shores. Way to go Google!
