After bringing the company back from the brink of bankruptcy and turning it into one of the world's most succesful technology companies, Jobs lost the battle with pancreatic cancer.

Do you have a Dell, HP or similar plant? Most of the major PC manufacturers use the same manufacturing plants (Foxconn etc) and so pointing a finger at one, ignoring the others, is misleading.

We have HP and Dell plants here. Their prices are actually fair in the market, local nationals work there. But an iPod will cost 2/3 of a brand new notebook here, or depending on the model (high-end) will cost a bit more than a brand new notebook. This is what I am talking about. I'm not fond of Apple Inc.

Once Microsoft called me to offer some "softwares" (I was in their telephone listing somehow). I asked: Why is it so expensive? The lady responded: Sir, our products are all imported. I replied: But, you do have a plant in this nation, right? You do have the product translated as I see. - She replied: Sorry, our products are imported and are sold on USD basis. I replied: No thanks.

We're talking about human exploitation and its major icons.
