Tech giant Apple made a bunch of announcements at its annual developer's conference yesterday: A new internet radio platform, major changes to iOS operating system that runs the iPhone and iPad, and a new laptop, which the company claims has a battery life of 12 hours.

Also, Apple will assemble its Mac Pro line of desktop computers right here in the USA.

The Cupertino-based company is not alone. There's been something of a manufacturing renaissance happening in the US of late. Charles Fishman, who writes about innovations in business for magazines like The Atlantic and Fast Company, joins the show with more.
