Apple to send Jobs to Bangalore in April

“Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers [sic], is likely to visit Bangalore in the first week of April. He is expected to launch Apple’s R&D center and technical support facility for its products here.

  1. To Dave H:
    HAL: Just what do you think you’re doing, Dave?
    HAL: Look Dave, I can see you’re really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

    MW: indeed

  2. Ed,
    As damaging as some unions may have been to general industry in America, in this case the reality is simply that India is cranking out more and better computer related engineers, software and electrical engineers. If America wants those jobs, American parents better work closer with their children and schools to better educate our next generation.

  3. All you liberals – stop the double standard.

    There is nothing wrong with outsourcing – Indians are better than Americans at tech – pls admit just look at Silicon valley just as Americans are beter at a whole host of opther things.
    For a superpower you seem to whine quite a bit when you are not as good at some thinsg
