Un-freaking-believable what people will do to others. Wasn't interested in buying Apple products before. Now I will not touch anything Foxconn, which manufactures for the iPhone, iPad. I wonder when workers will have time to use that "destress" room?

*edit: I feel as though this is China's "industrial age," in the social sense of the word. I hope that the article the Chinese journalist wrote will have a lot of tow. :(

I have always hated Apple. Now I also know why Apple's product are low quality because they are made by foxconn. Generally speaking you try to avoid products made by foxconn because of their poor quality. Its pretty revolting to hear what has happened and still is happening to foxconn's workers.

There is nothing wrong with making money honestly and there is a lot wrong with making money dishonestly.
