  Past a certain point I think you do more damage than good. Apple is big, has suppliers scattered across the globe and the press (including even the clowns at Gizmodo) are obsessed.
These stories always draw some odd posts. There is very little hard information provided. All we know for sure is there is a labor dispute with conflicting claims from different groups.   So what is posted? Claims of Apple (and by extension all Apple product owners) being involved in torture and slavery. Other claims of workers just being lazy. I guess it's vaguely entertaining, but not very informative.
This is similar to the old IBM "Groovy" campaign for OS/2, which included psychedelic stickers and chalk drawings on sidewalks. That ended in failure and ridicule. Trying so desperately to be cool just makes them look even more dweebish. 
  Well said, though I would change it slightly to "makes sense to switch ANY supplier". Apple depends on suppliers delivering cutting edge tech reliably and in large quantity. Currently that means Intel for Macs.
  To be fair, Satan is pretty cool.
Sucks to be RIM. They are in a Palm like death spiral.
  I guess you can't see the humor in it.
  They are being paid, and they are not in chains.   Companies exploiting interns is not new or unique to China. The students may not enjoy the work, but they must think the end result is worth it or they would not be there. Paying some dues to get ahead is not slavery.
  "Spring Surprise" like in the Monty Python crunchy frog skit?
Oh, no! If you can't trust internet rumors and allegations from shady organizations, what can you trust?
