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."

Darwin at its finest!

Seriously, if you can't deal with failure of something that's not so vitally important, it's probably better for the species for you to exit the gene pool voluntarily before you contaminate it too much, because you won't be able to deal with more important things that really matter for survival.
