Foto: "Picture of young workers at a Samsung supplier's factory"

Any proof that this photo is from Samsung supplier's factory? Because it may be any random foto from WWW.

"why do you think the source is posted in the article?"

Yes, I already saw that. These photos are taken by "China Labor Watch" as a proof but there is one problem because these photos doesn't provide any information that these kids are from Samsung supplier's factory. Anyway I don't say that "China Labor Watch" tell lies! I just say that these photos doesn't provide any proves that these kids are from Samsung supplier's factory because in these photos I can see just a few random kids sitting in the street.

"and when its apple you can accept it even when there is no source :/"

Any proof for such proposition?

You see, I don't care it is Samsung, Apple, HTC or Nokia because in this case my point was that internet is full of various kind of propaganda and you always have to analyze all incoming information and decide it is truth or just untrusted information. In this case I tend to believe in "China Labor Watch" words but again these photos doesn't say nothing!

Then I have answered:

"Where do you see here Android?"

Because this article is not about Android.

I wasn't talking about user avatars! :D
Yes, I saw that Android in your avatar is dead. :(

iHate to burst your bubble but, this is not some random World Wide Web photo, it is an actual photo taken inside Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California..

It's really sad what's happening with child slave labor in the World.

As much power the Chinese government has, it really should have its own fully-functional OSHA by now, if only to stop bad press about itself and its citizens. Yes, the OEMs should require the factories to hold a certain standard, but the factories should be willing to do that on their own, not be forced by the OEMs and/or government.

"Anyway I don't say that "China Labor Watch" tell lies!"

At least they are taking measures to stop these and have given them a deadline, they themselves did these checks. Human rights groups had to check on Foxconn and Apple wasn't even a bit concerned.

Difference is Samsung is trying to do something about it, whereas apple couldn't give two sh*ts about labor conditions in their plants.

Apple, Samsung, & many other companies, disregard human rights in favor of higher profits. U.S. was doing much better (financially & morally) before all these bs. one way trade agreements with China. Just makes it easier for wealthy multinationals 2 exploit people... & Samsungs pledge 2 stop breaking the law in 2 years ? Since when is complying with the law optional ? This is what happens when government allows big business to police themselves.

Samsung made a lot of products from china. Phone is just one item. Apple fans are too emotional to be logical.

You have the freedom to choose apple products but can you read the words for the meaning without thinking about apple vs android.
