The New York Times had a great article yesterday about the outsourcing to China of all consumer electronics manufacturing in general and the specifically manufacturing of iPhones.

Woven into the article is the fascinating story of how the plastic screen of the first iPhone was replaced with the Gorilla Glass that we know and love, in just six weeks before the iPhone went on sale. No other company besides Apple would even consider pulling off such a feat. And there’s no other place in the world besides Shenzhen China where it would be possible.
