Foxconn to replace workers with 1 million robots

Big surprise here. I continue to make the point that American manufacturing did not get outsourced simply because China is "less expensive". Maybe if you just look at a number on a spreadsheet they look less expensive, but if you take into consideration the IP battle you'll have on your hands, outsourcing to the wild wild east is not such a great idea. Domestic manufacturers can be just as efficient and the proof in my opinion is in this report. Even the world's largest electronics manufacturer is resorting to robotic manufacturing more and more, despite how inexpensive Chinese labor is. Clearly, if it's more cost effective for the Chinese to use robots, then it would be more cost effective for domestics to use robots.
Don't outsource to China simply because the number on the spreadsheet is cheaper. Look at the total cost.
