    It was Motorola a few years ago and now Vizio. Though I will have to admit that it would not have been my first choice manufacturer for flat panel TVS, I have to admit I found myself impressed at the displays Vizio has put out. Now the Irvine based company has been acquires by LeEco which is based out of China.

    Not sure how this will play out...but I really liked Vizio TVs. They've been all I've bought for years and never had an issue.

    Time for an administration purge. Then let's remake the companies they buy, make the products here again and then stop buying from China. Leave them with less valuable companies and keep the money they paid for them here.

    China is also hiring as many good employees in tech as possible. Of your LinkedIn even hints at software engineer, app writing, code, and they can verify it..there are some pretty good offers to work there ..even for American people..it's time for them to have their Industrial boom I guess..

    I'm American but I was made in Mexico.


    Just kidding. Lots of American products are assembled elsewhere.

    Yeah I have a business partner that is doing street tuning for gas mileage on everyday cars..we call ourselves accudyne and the mission is to get 15-20% better mileage in fleet vehicles and the average Joe's car , truck or SUV. We installed and tuned on some vehicles the state of Alabama in mobile and we're seeing higher boosts and even in performance... we've been contacted to bring our "product" to China to build it up and we also have offer to buy it out already just based off of 3 months of data at the 6 figure range..
