I don't buy into Apple... I don't do iPods, iPhones, iPads, Mac, or iTunes. I don't use them, I don't buy them, never cared to have them. There has always been something about Apple's stuff that I just didn't like. The same feeling I had about AOL. Just this gut feeling about how they do business.
If this kind of stuff bothers you, then quit supporting it... QUIT buying the products! Apple is going to deny knowing anything about it, but you should know who you are doing business with... ignorance is no excuse. Besides... everybody knows that businesses take their business overseas because it's cheaper... and we ALL know why it's cheaper... it's because the workers are being abused and taken advantage of.
Investigations Reveal Long Trail of Abuses at Apple Suppliers
This is hardly the first time reports of abuse have emerged from the closely guarded secret of Apple’s supply line. But in recent weeks, investigations, including a shocking series from The New York Times, have brought the slow-simmering waters of public opinion to a boil as they reveal the lives of the Chinese workers who labor at low cost and high risk to produce the ever-sleeker, ever-slimmer devices for which the world clamors.
Jobs’s conversation killer of a response? “Those jobs aren’t coming back.”
