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."

This is ridiculous, and BOTH Apple and Foxconn should be blamed for these types of techniques.

Its freaking electronics, and they go so far as driver a person to commit suicide.

I hope Apple and Foxconn both get a lot of heat for this and thank-you for bringing this to our attention.
