Google (GOOG) is giving Apple a run for its money, though. The tech giant debuted a “Made in the U.S.A.” Nexus Q — spherical streaming entertainment device — long before its rival began making insourcing headlines.
The company was quiet about its debut — pointing to the benefits of having design and engineering facilities near one another — but it didn’t stop there.
Back in March, for example, sources began reporting that Google plans to manufacture its highly anticipated Google Glass eyewear right in Santa Clara, Calif.
On top of that, the “do no evil” company also announced plans to unveil a new Moto X smartphone — the result of last year’s Motorola acquisition — later this year. The gadget will be made near Fort Worth, Texas, and will mean the creation of around 2,000 jobs.
