I’m actually not sure why people aren’t more up in arms over this (via iPodLounge & MacWorld UK). It sickens me personally.
Blogging Devices Tech Uncategorized
Just about everything you buy in the U.S. is produced in a sweatshop. You have heard of Nike haven’t you? Maybe you could blog about windows media devices that are produced in sweatshops are other windows products. There probably made in the same factory.
People are not up in arms about it because the article is full of facts that don’t add up
This is what Scoble is talking about when he talks about how you have to embrace your competition to keep your credibility. This post only serves as a bitter expression of your own bias against Apple and their industry-leading product. You must realize that Microsoft likely sells PlaysForSure licenses to any number of electronics manufacturers that utilize factories with similar conditions, or even, as Mike points out, possibly the same very factory.
Beyond that, Garth’s point that the story may not even be factually accurate makes your overeager rebuke look even worse.
A post saying, "I’m deeply disappointed in Apple as I thought they were a better company than this" manages to both express your displeasure with the working conditions as well as your respect for your competition, who currently makes a definitively superior product to anything available with PlaysForSure. Please try to take a more tempered approach in the future, I enjoy reading your thoughts in general.
As you can see, there was no "up in arms" because apple can do no wrong. Excuses from "everybody does it" to "if the ipod factory wasn’t there they would’nt even have the $50" to "there not being forced to work there". Zealotry is pretty deep isn’t it.
And forgive the horrible spelling. I really need to type much slower…and use they’re properly.
It has nothing to do with being an apple zealot, I switched from Mac to Windows in 97 and have not looked back The article appears to be off by 100,000 workers, so I doubt the other statements as well.
There really isnt enough proof for this to be a solid fact, this is why investigations are being made by several people… IF Apple really has something to do with this I will be very surprised, but again you must remember this is a third party and not actually Apple.

There is a difference between Zealotry and Opinionated people who happen to be in favor of poor working environments.
What can one expect from a company run by Steve Jobs?
