Work For Apple, Go To Mordor


Did you know that hardware technicians from Apple are routinely sent from the Cupertino camp to China for a two week shift? I had no idea, but then again, I never really thought to ask or cared that much. Anyways, the tech folk head to the FoxConn factory in Shenzhen, China, which apparently is the size of a city and internally it’s known as ‘being sent to Mordor’. Weird isn’t it? Anyone have some insight?
