    It is reported that Apple may have trouble meeting iPad demand. Two reasons cited were the problem getting more production lines for the retina displays, and the agreed upon new worker overtime rules. Despite the workers wanting to work overtime, Foxconn will keep overtime down to the regulated amount. That means less production until more people are hired and trained.

    It'd be great if they could open a nice factory here and hire some local workers. Just wishful thinking.

    If that were to actually happen,your $800.00 iPad could easily become your $4,000.00 iPad.
