Only $8? Way too much, what about the cost of the nets so they workers don't kill themselves? Shouldn't they take that out of the $8?

Don't worry, Apple will squeeze the suppliers so the workers make $1 per iPad. Can't have the workers making any money can we?

Buying apple products = supporting slavery

Not exactly trying to defend any company that does business with Foxconn, but this view is so fuckin' out there.

1. There are several tech companies that do business with Foxconn, including HP and Dell.
2. These comapanies have no control over how Foxconn treats their employees.
3. Even if they (ALL) dumped Foxconn and went somewhere else it would be a sweat shop too. Foxconn isn;t the only sweat shop out there.
4. We live in a fucking GLOBAL economy, now. ANY company that doesn't seek the lowest bidder for manufacturing is going to get UNDERCUT, and won't be in business very long.
5. It's up to the CHINESE to put an end to the sweat shops... BUT THEY WON'T. The government WANTS the rest of the world to be undercut.

It sucks... but it is what it is. I don't see anyone up in arms about Dell or HP using Foxconn, which is utter BS. Just about any electronics that are manufactured in China or Taiwan, comes from a sweat shop. Period. So, please get off your high horse if you own just about ANY electronics... because you are so full of shit, with your bleeding heart crap.

You are just picking on the most profitable company, and not looking at the whole picture.
