That's sweat shop you inconsiderate jerks should be illegal but yet again all this world carex about is money. They should be sued by Mankind for being complete capitalistic jerks and not caring about how they treat people. They treat money better than they treat people. Hope some organization steps up an sues Apple to make an example of them and sets a new standard for fair labor practices world wide.

Sues them for what, exactly? Like it or despise it, Apple aren't breaking any laws. Even if there are laws being broken, Foxconn would be on the hook, not Apple.

Now, I have no problem with people making these corporations squirm by exposing the working conditions in their contract partner facilities.

Sue them for being horrible human beings and treating other humans as mules. An Apple knows exactly what's goin on as much as they sue people they to darn nosey not to know what their partner in crime is doin.

Sorry, but that lawsuit would get laughed out of court. You can't sue for just any old reason.

Technically closer to $500. The 4S is $650 without a contract, so let's say it's $100 to manufacture, ship, and warranty, $50 for the OS, and $500 for the apple logo

Of cause she's happy. God knows how much they've been brainwashed to make it seem like an honor to built Apple's crap or even be in it's presence for a dollar per hour...
