    Workers protest at Foxconn plant in China

    Reuters: Top News



    TAIPEI (Reuters) - Workers at a Chinese factory owned by Foxconn, Apple Inc's main manufacturer, threatened to jump off the roof of a building in a protest over wages just a month after the two firms announced a landmark agreement on improving working conditions.

    Boo hoo, a few factory Tiongster slaves died.

    Also, Foxconn makes lots of other computer parts for other brands. It's not just Apple.

    No karma for using products made by blood labourers?

    How about retribution?

    This is China, 没完没了。Fuck up communism. Many factories owners in southern China had told me that all these are politically motivated when CCP want to show off or make a point or raise the country's wages they do such things to foreign companies.

    At one point in time Spore made about 50% of the HDDs in the world. I wonder if anyone made noise about the labor laws in Spores;)

    Why blame Foxconn or Apple. The worker can leave anytime , no one force them to work there.

    It depends what you use the mac for. I'm sick of using windows and can't be bothered tinkering with linux anymore. OSX works right out the box. No more tinkering. Its a breath of fresh air once you get used to it.

    Bro, once you've tried a mac you'll probably not want to go back to a PC.

    I use both, PC for my company work and Mac for my OTHER company's work. I must say the Mac is more enjoyable. :D

    then can check out the mac book air if you don't do heavy work on it.

    it's also pretty light to carry around. I'm waiting to buy one when the Wife finally gives her approval, not still pending. :D
