are you mad sowy apple is "square" with pre-teens and vilified by socially conscious teenagers and under thirty consumers for her abhorrent slave labor practices aback the bare hands of 1.2 million workers @ foxconn?
no parent would buy this iPhone filth for their child.
The only "filth" around here is in between your ears. Apple pays exemplary wages, relative to other factories in China, and the Foxconn jobs are among the most SOUGHT AFTER positions. Lastly, Apple has opened up these factories for internal and external review, and that's pretty unheard of. They're doing right by the people of China, and making shareholders wealthy in the process. And there isn't a thing wrong with that, ethically or legally.
I agree, sowens. Near-term, and in the US, this is BIG.
However, the real, and I mean real huge, growth for aapl lies in China, Brazil, India, and Africa. The next five years should be big in these emerging markets as aapl learns the best ways to distribute in these regions.
