Just As I Thought

Short term memory loss

The first article on the Apple-centric blog talks about suicides at the Chinese company Foxconn, which manufactures Apple gadgets. It says:

Foxconn claims it’s not a sweatshop, but reports say the company is asking employees to work 60 hours of overtime a month (far over the legal limit of 36 hours of overtime), and paying only about $132 a month. Clearly something is wrong at the company that Apple depends on for much of its manufacturing labor.

Then the next article, breathlessly anticipating a new phone, says

the new phones might go on sale during the developer conference itself, which would be quite a way to kick off the summer.

Question answered, I think.
