hopefully, apple will stop manufacturing stuff in china, just like they did with some macbooks
foxconn is really unfair.....
okay, forget about foxconn, how can china allow this to happen to their citizens?
moving the manufacturing to india and the other asian countries is a better idea, if apple thinks that manufacturing in USA is too expensive

you are right...without india, nokia could have died...
samsung has surpassed nokia in the smartphone sales in india
but the indians trust nokia more than any other company, especially for the build quality and durability

PA, you make a flop after flop, you just can't get enough, hm? "Foxconn is not just the largest gadget manufacturer in the world, the Chinese company..." Foxconn is (luckily)a Taiwanese company, not Chinese. It may be the largest Chinese employer, but still Taiwan is not China. Let's hope it will never be.

china is allowing this to happen

lmfao... Considering Samsung sells more phones than Apple, the sensational headline is hilarious.

even samsung fases such problems, samsung uses child workers to meet the huge demand
but samsung doesn't make too many headlines when it comes to manufacturing because they manufacture their products in india and korea and these two countries don't allow companies to exploit their workers......even foxconn does that only in china
