Poor factory conditions… is there an app for that?

applewhipIt seems (if you can believe it) that some Apple-associated factories in China are subject to less-than-ideal standards. Discrimination, environmental unfriendliness, and even a dash of underage workers. Well, I may just go return my MacBook right now!

Of course, this is only being reported because everyone likes to desecrate the Apple temple once in a while, but Apple is no guiltier than most other tech companies in their use of factories lacking adequate oversight. Any other strategy would mean those sexy computers would be even more expensive, if you can imagine it. But it’s nice to have a reminder now and again that our idols aren’t quite as blameless as we’d like them to be.
