and this is the problem when idiots care more about their stupid electronics than human lives. A factory built in 70 days?? really??? and then they wonder when things go wrong. There was also a report that the factory workers were complaining of lack of ventillation which let the aluminum dust or build up in the air.. which caused the explosion when mixed with other air chemical pollutants.

If they made anything I bought at that plant, I would stop buying their products. This makes over 20 deaths at the hands of apple/foxconn in what.. a year?? do ANY of you ibots care? feel responcible? ready to switch to a more responcible company?

Secret meth lab. They put it in all apple tabs so people get addicted for no reason. Just a thought.

People die and all you care about are your gadgets?!?!?! This just means that less babies will grow up without depth perception thanks to their parents who were told that iPads are better for learning 3D manipulation skills than wooden blocks.
