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."

"We are saddened by the tragic loss of this young employee, and we are awaiting results of the investigations into his death by our Shaolin Gung Fu Death Squad. We require our suppliers at Lo Pan International Trading to treat all workers with dignity and respect...until they lose one of our iPhone prototypes."
