re: Could Apple play the 'Made in the USA' card, too?

That's true. But that is where they build the processors for Apple. I've heard in the past that Apple insisted that Samsung build a fab in the U.S. to make its processors. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me since the processor are shipped to Asia, where the products are assembled. Last week it came out that Apple bought 300 acres of land in Austin to expand its facility there. Apple plans to hire another 3,600 employees there. http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/18/apple-austin-texas-campus-plans/

But they are under the control of Samsung. The next generation of Apple processors are unlikely to be made in the U.S. unless Apple turns to Intel.

At least, Apple should make 50% of parts in USA. This will be great achievement for Apple.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
