I just checked Gazelle. They will buy my iPhone 3GS for $143. A Motorola Droid, which came out at roughly the same time, is only worth $32.
A few things:1) I don't think that Foxconn has "inhuman working conditions". You hear a lot about the number of suicides there, but the fact of the matter is that China, itself, has a very high suicide rate. The suicide rate at Foxconn is actually somewhere around 1/2 to 1/3 of China's rate.

They sell their products based on the designs. Everybody knows this.So, when lazy Samsung decides to glom onto Apple's "cool factor" by stealing Apple's designs, it makes Apple's products look less special. Apple's brand is no longer distinct.Samsung has got to be the dumbest company on the face of the...
I do tend to wonder why Apple's renderings show uncut grass... it makes the building look abandoned.
Sounds like a solution looking for a problem, since the iPhone currently only uses one cable.
