Made in Texas: Apple's A5 iPhone Chip

I find it funny that Apple buys its processors from Samsung, the very same company they are suing. Hey, at least the parts are made in the U.S. now.

Apple Inc is famous for relying on low-cost Asian manufacturers to both source and assemble its popular gadgets, but the consumer device giant recently started receiving a critical component in its iPad and iPhones from closer to home - Texas. The A5 processor - the brain in the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 - is now made in a sprawling 1.6 million square feet factory in Austin owned by Korean electronics giant Samsung Electronics.
