Adeniji, 

Do you think there is one already in existence with those characteristics?

Adeniji, 

By ideas you mean their creativity? Because I don't see how that can be affected.

@Ariella: Thanks for feedback. If organization is very bold and confident in their product, they should mention % of part manufactured/created in USA. With this transperancy, customer may like to purchase those products. Will Apple do it? If not, Google or Samsung should do it.

@Ariella: Yes, if 50% or more parts / value add on services are crearted in USA, product is manufactured in USA. If not, it is assembled in USA.

My only concern is that the price of Apple product will not skyrock.

will production cost be lower be at the same level with their formal manufacturing mode

I guess it would be maufactured and assembled in US. That's what manufacturing locally would mean. I dont think Apple would invest in just assembling something is US when its getting made elsewhere.
