Apple still shamed by China's iPod sweatshops SIX YEARS after Mail on Sunday exposé

Apple has failed to tackle the scandalous working conditions at its supplier iPod factories in China, six years after The Mail on Sunday first exposed the company’s appalling record.
Workers are continuing to die and sustain injuries in horrific accidents as they are forced to work from morning to night for slave wages in sweatshop conditions.
The new allegations have been made by The New York Times, which found that Apple’s pledges to improve its safety record and working practices following our 2006 investigation have proved hollow.
Even though Apple’s own inspectors called for improved conditions, they have frequently been ignored, with whistle-blowers claiming the company pays only lip service to the issues in its relentless quest for profit.
The Mail on Sunday’s investigation revealed how Apple workers in China had to work 15 hours a day for £27 a month, and were made to sleep in dormitories and do push-ups as punishment.
The New York Times says that Apple found ‘consistent violations’ of its code of conduct after inspecting 396 of its sub-contractor facilities.
More than half of the audits revealed problems, including employees regularly working more than 60 hours a week, underage workers, falsified records, wages below minimum levels, pay withheld as punishment and improper disposal of hazardous waste.
More than 100 workers have been injured by toxic chemical exposures.
The New York Times added: ‘The workers assembling iPhones and iPads . . . work excessive overtime. Some say they stand so long that their legs swell until they can hardly walk.
‘Two years ago, 137 workers at an Apple supplier in Eastern China were injured after they were ordered to use a poisonous chemical to clean iPhone screens. Within seven months last year, two explosions at iPad factories, including in Chengdu, killed four people and injured 77.’
Among the dead was Lai Xiadong, 22, whose girlfriend recalled seeing his horrific injuries in hospital, where he spent two days before succumbing. ‘Over 90 per cent of his body had been seared. A mat of red and black had replaced his mouth and nose,’ she said.
The New York Times claims that in 2009 a Foxconn employee fell or jumped from an apartment building after losing an iPhone prototype. Over the next two years, at least 18 other Foxconn workers were linked to attempted suicides.
Another source told the paper: ‘We have spent years telling Apple there are serious problems and recommending changes. They don’t want to pre-empt problems, they just want to avoid embarrassments.’
After The New York Times article appeared, Apple chief executive Tim Cook promised in an email to staff: ‘We will continue to dig deeper, and we will undoubtedly find more issues. What we will not do – and never have done – is stand still or turn a blind eye.’

maganda kaya. kahit nga ip4 maganda eh. lalong gumanda sa ip4s.
baka hindi ka naka hdr mode kaya pangit. try mo hdr mode ka para ma utilize mo 8 mega pixel.:-)
Same here. I find Apple's camera a bit inferior to my previous smartphone, lg 2x, though parehas naman silang 8MP.
ip4s plan 999 sa smart?
AFAIK you still add another 999 for the cashout every month until the end of the contract! correct me if im wrong XD
btw bought mine from Globe before the new year,as a present to myself,
globe plan 1799(P800 consumable)+4800 cashout >>>smart plan 999+999/mo )
globe comes with unli data plan while smart's only gives 250MB per month(roughly 6 youtube videos)
Halliburton to abandon BlackBerry, turn to iPhone
TORONTO (Reuters) - Oil field services company Halliburton plans to stop issuing BlackBerry smartphones to employees and switch over to Apple's iPhone, which it said was better suited to its needs, marking another setback for Research In Motion.
RIM's BlackBerry smartphones have long dominated corporate mobile communications with on-the-hip email and security credentials, but are increasingly challenged by Apple products and smartphones running Google's Android software.
"We are making this transition in order to better support our mobile applications initiatives," spokeswoman Tara Mullee Agard said in an email on Tuesday.
The Houston-based company will switch 4,500 BlackBerry-toting employees across to iPhones over the next two years, Mullee Agard said, adding that Halliburton would supply the devices. Apple is helping with the transition, she said.
Even before a major RIM outage last October left many workers without email on their BlackBerry, companies had been considering alternatives.
Last year, Credit Suisse started allowing bankers to use their Apple and Android devices on the company network - one-third of its 25,000 BlackBerry users have switched.
Barclays Capital also allows some employees to use iPhones and iPads. Standard Chartered switched from BlackBerry to iPhones for many users last year.
Companies that had previously supplied workers with a BlackBerry and paid RIM a monthly service fee can save by encouraging use of personal devices.
Yet while many large corporation say they are testing how the iPhone and other devices can handle their email and other corporate data, it is unclear how many will ultimately abandon the BlackBerry entirely.
RIM has nevertheless recognized the threat and in November announced it would offer security features for iPhone and Android from within its existing BlackBerry service for corporations.

mas ok sana kung meron manual settings sa cam ng iphone, di man lang pwede mapalitan yung ISO or white balance eh, wala rin macro mode
naexperience ko yan nung may screen protector yung likod ng phone, pero nung pinalitan ko ng may butas dun sa camera and LED part di ko na naexperience yan,
Sana magkaron na ng option na mamili ng resolution pag mag-record ng video. Mabilis mapuno yung 64gb LOL
LOL camera quality as the main reason for buying a phone? Gusto niyo magandang camera? Go buy a Digicam.
Filipinos really have a penchant for posturing and making excuses, if you can't afford the 4s just say so, di na kailangan maging picky kuno tapos ang ipapalit na phone is just half the price.
