    Fresh from a headline-making keynote at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference today, Apple CEO Tim Cook is headed to Washington D.C. to attend a much larger event.

    Apple has confirmed that Cook will be on hand for tonight's State of the Union Address. We are told that the Apple boss will be seated with or near First Lady Michelle Obama. According to published reports this morning, Cook will be joined by other high-profile or heroic individuals invited by the White House.

    In addition to NASA’s Bobak “Mohawk Guy” Ferdowsi, the First Lady's guests will include a female Marine, a DREAM student, a Wounded Warrior, a teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary School, a nurse from NYU Langone Medical Center, and the parents of Hadiya Pendleton.

    President Obama's State of the Union address will take place tonight from the Capitol at 9 p.m. EST.

    Afterward Obama's going to clothesline Cook and steal his wallet. "You've just been tax hiked, b*tch," Obama will say.

    Yup... Prez gave him a shoutout saying that Apple will start producing Macs on home soil... But that doesn't mean that foreign manufacturing will cease, but it's a start I guess...

    Well, Apple can't just move Foxconn over here. It just wouldn't work in our society. iPhone would have to cost at least four times as much if we payed all the workers minimum wage, overtime, benefits, etc... People complain about the iPhone's cost now. Apple would go out of business.
