    Well if it isn’t Mr. Freakin’ 9to5Google who wrote that report!

    Shanghai reporter meets Foxconn assembly line.  You better believe it’s a different kind of life.  And, for all its drudgery and cognitive dissonance (well, you are a reporter from Shanghai after all) untold times better than anyone else not under FLA/the rest of the world’s media’s multiple-standard, faux-Sauron gaze.

    And you better hope Apple never figures out who you are, Mr. Journalist Engaging in Maybe-Unintentional Could-Be-Corporate Espionage.

    Oh, and the longer the FLA stays on Apple’s case, the less credible claptrap like this sounds:

    http://micgadget.com/29723/the-undercover-report-on-how-the-new-iphone-5-is-made-inside-foxconn-factory/

    (Now with undated photos!)

    But…in the off chance you do buy an iSlave Labor iPhone 5…do check for suspicious scratches or other imperfections, particularly on the color finishes.  There’s only so much Jony Ive can do to protect those shiny toy components when they’re slammed back onto assembly lines in some form of catharsis.

    And while you’re at it, SELL AAPL.  57 million iPhone 5s in a year is bad, bad news.
