Difficult to tell these global megacorps one from another :wink:

Some years back I sat at the bar for dinner in one of those faceless chains that fill malls across America and cater to corporate lunch and dinner crowds. They had a “get a pint for a dollar more” (koff, koff) “deal” going, and so I ordered one (this would be 16oz. vs. 12 oz.). The kid plunks a 12 oz. straight-sided “pint-style” glass in front of me and wanders off.

I shrugged, was thirsty, and so drank it. When he came back, I pointed out that this was in fact a 12 oz. glass. He begged to differ, as he’d no doubt been unknowingly fleecing the customers on the bar’s behalf for a while. I said, "OK, then give me a bottle of (whatever). I poured it into the glass, which it filled to the brim. To his credit, he looked chagrinned. Felt bad for the kid.

“Stop The World, I want To Get Off”.
[Talk about dredging up long forgotten useless information. :wink:]

Hopefully the tech stays here with production here as well.

I am sure it’s going to be a mixed bag all dependent on base component manufacturing.
