There was an explosion at a factory in Taiwan last week, the factory just so happened to be a Foxconn owned factory that manufactures Apple parts including those for the new iPad 2, did you hear?
Apparently 3 people died and 15 were injured, but wait… DOES THAT MEAN WE ALL HAVE TO WAIT LONGER FOR AN IPAD 2 NOW!!!!?
That’s what everybody seems to be more concerned about. Never mind 3 people lost their lives, never mind they probably had children or wives/husbands at home. All everyone seems to be concerned with is a delay to the iPad 2 manufacturing process. Seriously, what the fuck?
We are talking about the same company here and factory where a lot of workers have committed suicide because of the working conditions and now this?
Dwayne, you are overreacting, Apple needs those iPad 2’s to make a few more billion dollars. Besides I’m sure there are plenty more food/water/moneyless poor Taiwanese folk out there looking for a few dollars a day to feed their starving families, no sweat.
It really makes you wonder just how much money goes to the workers making the critical parts of Apple devices and goes into workplace health and safety.
