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."

I am not quite sure what you are saying here - I am only myself saying it's probably better to reserve judgement, regarding both sides.

What you did do though was take a pretty cheap shot at someone else's culture in a case of an individual's suicide.

It's not a gentlemanly thing to do, is all.
