    I'm so appalled by their working conditions that I will continue to buy more Apple devices so the efforts by these Foxconn workers does not go in vain.

    I know I know. This has been reported a gazillion times. Wonder if the New York Times uses Google lol.



    That article was a hit piece. Apple has always favored WSJ. Duh.



    Id be shitshocked if ABC fires a hit at Apple esp. since Disneys Iger just got elected to the Apple board AND the stockholder meeting is two days after. A major uprising would happen there. Think about it.

    That makes two of use who see the connection...I'd like to say "great minds think alike" but unfortunately stupid it's the common mind that is more likely to think alike. Hmm.. great minds think in pairs; and there's plenty of evidence to support that phenomenon.

    Hey, ABC!

    While you're over there, why not do an exposé on the working conditions at the clothing sweatshops.

    You know, the ones that are 10 times worse than these tech factories?

    Oh wait, that would mean exposing your biggest advertisers.

    Wouldn't want that.

    [QUOTE=timothyjay2004;2049654]You know, I'm getting tired of hearing about Foxconn/Apple facility problems - Apple is ONE of Foxconn's customers .. why is it only Apple being thrown into the spotlight? I'm in no way saying that things can't improve at Foxconn ... what I am saying is, why only Apple?[/QOUTE]



    That's what I thought when Apple sued Samsung: Samsung is ONE of Google's customers, why is it only Samsung being thrown into the spotlight?



    just suck it up.
