Hardware, Embedded Systems This is one sad story to report on. Sun Danyong, 25-year-old employee at Chinese manufacturing company Foxconn, has committed suicide after being subjected to apparently rather rigorous interrogation methods by Foxconn's Central Security Division. Danyong handled a shipment of 16 iPhone prototypes, and one of them went missing. Update: Apple responds: "We are saddened by the tragic loss of this young employee, and we are awaiting results of the investigations into his death. We require our suppliers to treat all workers with dignity and respect."

Check out the Wikipedia page on Foxconn. Seems like it is not the first evil doing from Foxconn.

Then again, what can I say... All I wear is Adidas, and look at their sweatshops. It is a problem that is greater than us as individuals.
