“An undercover investigation by BBC Panorama reveals that workers in Chinese factories which make Apple products have been discovered to being treated poorly; filming on an iPhone 6 production line revealed Apple's promises to protect workers were routinely broken.”-
Another reason why Apple is despicable... only this time for serious. My thread: "And Another Reason Why Apple IS Despicable" was intended to be a bit of Apple bashing for fun, but this is far more serious and not a fun/joking matter. So yeah, Apple is despicable and should be held to account for its crimes against humanity, namely Chinese/Asian workers
For mine, Apple has such a poor track record across the board that it should be dismantled and its inventory of products spread across several smaller, independent companies to ensure it never again becomes so powerful that even judges are afraid of it.
Also, any current, pending and future legal proceedings begun by Apple should be hit on the head and dismissed as egotistical grabs at other companies IP, because frankly, Apple is not the innovative, inventive genius it claims to be, but has merely used other peoples tech to further its own cause.
Honestly, I'd like to see China kick Apple out; for Taiwan to say "not here thank you"; and for S Korea to tell Apple there is NO room for it there. After that there are probably no other manufacturing nations big enough to cope with the demand, bar the UK, Russia and some in Europe, but at too high a cost, which may then mean that Apple must return to the US, thus boosting US employment and its home economy rather than plundering other national economies by evading taxes, exploiting cheap resources and disadvantaged workers in Asia, ect.
And no, this isn't Apple bashing... this is me expressing my total disgust for a totally contemptible, unethical company.
As for buying Apple products... never in a fechen million years. I still have some principles [spelt the proper English way]
