Chinese Engineer for a company that manufacturers for Apple was tortured after losing one of 16 4G iPhones in existence. The company thought he stole the iPhone and sold it to a competing company and they tortured him until he decided to jump off a 12 story building.

WTF. This is what goes into your iPhones people. Are you happy now.

Wait 5 hours
Be accused by the promoter of being late
Get told we have only a 10 minute set
Play pure noise for 10 minutes

Worst and most amusing gig of my life.

Anyone else had this kind of **** happen?!

Dimebag had a worse gig.

I haven't used one long term, but a friend of mine has one, and it's certainly a great little phone. I count the minutes until the contract Apple has with AT&T runs out so I can get one on Verizon.

It wasn't that he lost it. It was that they assumed he sold it to a competitor.

this, also knowing apple in 3 minutes they'll have 16 iPhone 5G prototypes.

why do they even need a new prototype right now, they basically just got the 3GS iphone (which came out a few weeks after my mom got her 3G iphone which came out a few months after my dad got his iphone)

Just because I'm no longer their operating system of choice doesn't mean that they won't let me chew on an employees face for ruining apples plan to make an Applesauce application and a 4G Iphone, which would allow the user to order a liquidated Macintosh at any time, in any location.
And after a pre-determined amount of time, the Mac would reform into a terminator robot and rape the customers chickens, before Bob, the insane cross-eyed goat would come to the rescue and chew the Mac's "metallic extension" off.


And as it turned out, the Applesauce application was badly received by most people anyway, so the only one who suffered was the employee. And a chicken.

to be fair the m&m dispenser never really worked in the first place, and the magical rope only applies in the largest GB model of the iPhone

Yeah, Apple didn't torture him. But the Company did.
edit:
AppleInsider notes that it's the second piece of bad news for the company recently. Last week an investigation found that 45 of the 83 factories that built iPhones and iPods in 2008 weren't paying valid overtime rates, and that 23 weren't even paying some of their workers China's minimum wage.

This isn't good, either. What's up, China?!?!

It says "unbearable interrogation techniques"


The US used waterboarding as an interrogation technique, so don't rule out torture.

Quote by ShangHaiist


Foxconn has already issued a statement apologizing for the incident and admitting that ah section chief of the Central Security Division, surnamed Gu, may have used "inappropriate interrogation methods" such as searching Sun's house, holding Sun in solitary confinement and possibly beatings. Gu has been suspended without pay and the company is internally investigating the Central Security Division.

Foxconn owns the Central Security Division.
