Apple issues statement on Foxconn explosion (TUAW.com)

May 22nd 2011 3:32PM What caused it is probably Apple's greed and exploitation of Chinese cheap labor. Them wanting to own production, own supply, control demand, maximize profits and minimize expense.

I'm not suggesting Apple invented the idea to "Make in China", or that Apple is the only one making in China. I just think that if Apple wants to bloat about themselves being the biggest brand in consumer electronics, they should also have extra more responsibility towards the working conditions for the workers in China, and they should voluntarily suggest that the consumer electronics industry should pay the Chinese workers a larger share of the global CE industry profits. This way Chinese workers can get better salaries, better working conditions, shorter working hours, more holidays and better worker safely.

Jan 19th 2011 9:42AM Apple did retina on iphone4 not by choice, but because samsung wouldn't give apple the exclusivitg on super amoled, so they had to go to LG and ask them for an exclusive screen, no matter what, it should just be usable as an argument to keep the price as high as possible.

Aug 18th 2010 4:15PM Pixel Qi 10" capacitive wide view anti-glare would be the only right choice for them to use.

Archos 32 Internet "Tablet" hits the FCC, pictures and manual in tow (Engadget)

Aug 12th 2010 10:51AM @vkelman It's been perfectly stable with the Google Marketplace since January or so. In the beginning it had trouble keeping RAM available when many apps were opened but they fixed that long ago in a firmware update. It's not really a hack, the Google Marketplace and Google Apps just do take up some space in RAM.
