- Manufacturing moving from China to US: survey
Large manufacturers are increasingly moving production back to the United States from China, according to a new report by The Boston Consulting Group released Thursday. In the third annual survey of US-based senior executives at manufacturing companies with annual sales of at least $1 billion, the number of respondents who said their companies were currently reshoring to the US from China increased 20 percent from a year ago. “Given the fact that China's wage costs are expected to grow, do you expect your company will move manufacturing to the United States?" the August survey asked executives at an unspecified number of companies that currently manufacture in China.

- This might be one of the iOS storage bugs that’s preventing you from jumping to iOS 8
One of the most important reasons for some iOS 7 users not to upgrade to iOS 8 is storage space, as both the iOS 8 or the iOS 8.1 updates require plenty of storage for over-the-air upgrades. Apple enthusiast John Gruber found one potential explanation for this particular iOS problem coming from Kevin Hamm, who has figured out how the device’s storage can been taken over by “Other” files.
