x, 29 Nov 2022China fights covid with a lockdown. A huge one.Imagine locking down still 3 years after a pandemic starts (pandemics typically last 1-2 years, after it most have either died and/or have the necessary antibodies to prevent new epidemics).

China looked like beating the pandemic early and all they did was to merely delay the inevitable (the population *has to* go through the bulk of the pandemic or else those precious antibodies will never be in place to prevent future epidemics) ... if only they knew, lol.

              Good for those people for fighting for their rights. They deserve better living conditions, peace of mind for on-time wages, and not worry about sanitation and covid imprisonment.

Foxconn promises things to Apple that they can only achieve with exploitation of people. But as always, people will rush to blame Apple for some reason, not Foxconn. Heh.

                                Anonymous, 27 Nov 2022What I have been wondering is, do the COVID restrictions in... moreBecause anything related to Apple generates clicks, even when it's not related to them. Foxconn is worlds largest electronics assembler. They don't only make iPhones, they assemble electronic devices for tons of companies other than Apple. But who's gonna care about some lesser known brand when you can plaster APPLE all over the place and create fake drama? The fact that workers in less developed countries are being exploited as cheaper labor is not a news and isn't anything new either. It has been happening since the world was flooded by Made in China products. Now do the math how far back that goes. Then again, if you look at corporate America, is it really any different there? Entire US of A is flooded by underpaid workers that are borderline modern legalized slaves. Anyone cares? No. They just want s**t cheap. So, would be great if people would stop pretending with their moral BS.

Also, every chinese phones would become very boring because they could only copy from Samsung.
