Jobsworth

Someone’s said it far better than I can.

Apple work their workers to suicide at Foxconn, and use blood minerals from the Congo, where mutilation, murder and rape are the way factions maintain control of these valuable mines – and Apple have done this in full knowledge of the consequences of their actions for some time. Steve Jobs knew that. So he loved his work – good for him. But personally I don’t think one man inventing cool things and loving his work is worth another human life.

I’m sad for his family. But frankly no more sad than I am for the families of everyone else who’s died as a consequence of, or while working to produce cool iPhones and computers.
