Everyone knows it's not just Apple, but this would just be too big of a coincidence to not coincide with Apple's recent announcement. Apple is Foxconn's biggest customer by far, so I'm sure they have a lot of influence on them.

Here, here. The media loves Apple for it's...well can't say because it is a political word.

As for people proposing the asinine notion of "importing Chinese sweatshop workers"...MS knows just how hard it is to get BS and MS degree holding workers imported into the USA. And you think the (socialist parts of the) government is going to upset their "working" class block by letting in competition for jobs? Not a chance.
{Note to mods if that economic reasoning is too political just tell me and I'll slice it out of this post}

Apple could afford the costs of labor in the USA but Foxconn might make the move as a PR effort (surprisingly they still are known by the general public for bad practices) as well as to try out automated manufacturing without worrying about any of it's techniques or technology being as vulnerable to theft as it might be in China. It will be interesting but I'm just wondering why they would considering the tax uncertainty and tax environment in the USA.

That's what they are counting on.
Haven't Apple and Foxconn been receiving some poor attention lately? This move will put them in a positive light. The mainstream media will glom on to a story like this and use it to showcase how great it is for these companies to be bringing jobs to the US during a time when unemplyment is high.

More of a publicity stunt for positive attention I see it as.

And I doubt we'd see any increase in prices for the products produced here by Foxconn as what they would actually set up here in the US would be such a small percentage of their entire operation that they can pull something like this off and have it not effect the bottom line. The favorable publicity would more than make up for the added costs.

Thats good to know.

Lately I think people need to be more conscious on where are products are made because our country is going down the drain and all this money we are sending to China because we buy their products has to end and start making things to last in this country like we been doing.

Accepting this as an act of patriotism is nothing short of delusional.
I'm not about to change my perspective to appease myself. Facts are facts; acknowledging them is not "moaning."
The facts are that China has a virtually infinite supply of (fundamental) slave laborers, and the USA has about the opposite. Moving a major chunk of manufacturing process to the USA would be corporate suicide; that should be obvious to anyone.

It could be a token factory (a PR move,) though it seems too expensive to be that. It could be for branded "Made in the USA" products as is the way it's being promoted, which would result in only an equal/ lower quality yet more expensive branded product line; also niche, and not likely a money-making proposition considering most of their customers are buried in debt as it is.
Personally, I believe the most likely motive is the lower cost of energy in the USA paired with their interest in moving to robotic assembly lines. It's really the only thing that makes sense.

And it's fair to be offended by this. The USA's energy dominance is largely thanks to it's military dominance, which in turn has potential to make manufacturing cheaper for us than them. To me, that doesn't sound like a "fix" for our lack of jobs; 'sounds like a whole other beast of a problem.
