And then there was the Foxconn debacle in China with workers throwing themselves off a factory building, committing suicide due to the monotonous piece work to build iPods, iPhones. Solution? Build nets at the bottom of the building to catch the suicides. Yep, little pay bump and nets to catch the suicides “solved” it. And the child labor, http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2011/02/16/apples-2011-sweatshop-report/.
With record profits and making fat cats even richer, this is the height of hypocrisy. Personally, I couldn’t live with myself if I was in Apple management knowing this was happening. It’s all about the Bottom Line and not Humankind. They market progressive values but have the ethics of Wal-Mart, BP, Valero, & Exxon. When will this ever end?”

“The fact that he's one of the least 'giving' CEOs is telling enough for me. It usually baffles and ruffles feathers of those in my 'pack' o' friends who swear by the lord that Steve Jobs is looking out for everyone...but, unlike the wretched personalities of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or Mark Zuckerberg--Steve isn't that much into, giving back.
