    I bet a large chunk of that money is in China. Makes it easier to pay their vendors for manufacturing if they can pay in local currency drawn off in-country banks.

    Reminds me of when Steve and Woz won the National Technology Award in 1985. I am sure Ronald Reagan was blissfully unaware of who these two kids were when he presented the medal.
