    I really don't see a launch delayed. Apple puts so much into marketing and development that I'm willing to bet there would be a contingency plan for even this.

    I don't want to sound holier than though...but our concern is only for the supply of the goods? Do we care about people? This riles me.

    I was trying to stay away from that Del since I got carried away and got myself in trouble last time.

    Is that particular location the only place that manufactures iPhones? I just checked out Foxconn, and I see it has: 13 factories in China; several factories in Brazil; factories in Slovakia and the Czech Republic; one factory in India; a factory in Malaysia; and two factories in Mexico.

    Apple is not the only company that uses Foxconn facilities. Foxconn also manufactures products for Acer, Amazon.com, Cisco, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft, Motorola Mobility, Nintendo, Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Vizio.

    I would venture to say that all of us might own something manufactured in a Foxconn factory, even if we do not own any Apple products.

    A few weeks ago, a friend of mine had problems with the sound card on his PC. I wanted to find the drivers, so I asked him the manufacturer of the motherboard. The motherboard manufacturer was Foxconn.

    I think the majority of us here will say that we value human rights more so than being able to get the latest and greatest device, whatever that may be.

    It's the dumbasses that wait in lines days before a device is released that might not be so willing to admit that.

    I wonder if having all those cameras around woke those people up? They will strike, upper management will rehire and this strike will be suppressed by Foxconn and maybe the government. It's nice to see this though. The change has to come within the country and only when these people wake up and demand better pay then they will get it.

    That's been said here before by a former member Cap (not nearly as nice as you put it) and very true.

    Well said Cap. It's not only the pay issue. That's what is most understandable. But in an "economic powerhouse" like China (an economy bolstered by US and EU business) it's the humane situation that is particularly horrific. I hope the Chinese wake up to another Long March. With a 21st century meaning, of course.
