"Those jobs aren't coming back." That's what Steve Jobs said when President Obama asked him whether Apple would ever consider manufacturing its popular products in the U.S. But Jobs' successor, Tim Cook, has other ideas. In interviews with Bloomberg Businessweek and NBC News, Cook has revealed that in 2013, Apple will invest $100 million in manufacturing computers in the U.S. "I don't think we have a responsibility to create a certain kind of job," Cook told Bloomberg.
