"We're very proud to end a fantastic fiscal year with record September quarter results," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "We're entering this holiday season with the unchanged iPhone, obsolete mini iPad, Mac and iPod products ever, and we remain very confident in our outdated product pipeline."
I fixed it for you ! ;)

I really don't understand the argument behind manufacturing in China is somehow morally wrong. Sure manufacturing offshore is always going to weaken the local economy, however China has profited extensively from the manufacturing boom over there. Overall the living standards for Chinese nationals have increased dramatically.

There are a lot of arguments on both sides but I feel the quality of life for at least the teenagers would improve if Apple spent maybe half a billion by forcing Foxconn to have them work humane shift hours.

The workers exchange their physical and mental health to benefit their families, seems cruel to take advantage of that then show everyone how much money you made.

you take a lot for granted. it takes a lot of time and a lot of slogging down in the mud pit for third world countries to make it to first world status. you simply have to read up on how living standards improved in the US from 1850- present to understand the necessity of relaxed labor laws.

Yeah, but how in the hell am I going to take a 7th loan out for my 4th car if some asshole village in China is getting fed off of my income?
