      The reason I asked is that Foxconn gets business from tons of equipment manufacturers and ONLY taking Apple out of the equation isn't going stop this company from doing business the way they are.  If you want change, you have to pressure all of the companies that do business with them.

      •  Fine then. Let's do that... (0+ / 0-)

        What is the purpose of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Everywhere?  Because we go after the banks and the media don't you think it's time to bring the tech industry back home take back our jobs and our place as the FORMER technology leader of the world?  They must make sacrifices too.  What about the millions of jobs they could create here... now is the time.  If not now, when?  Will there ever be another chance like this?  I doubt it seriously.

      •  Yes, but we have to start somewhere, and Apple (0+ / 0-)

        has made themselves a great target by claiming to be so special & different.

        Their arrogance is stunning.  Remember when they used John Lennon as a pitchman...Lennon having died before Apple's time?

    •  Well it is time that this heard of SHEEP turn (1+ / 0-)

      the other way and walk up to the mountain top.   Steve Jobs should earn his SUPERHERO status this time.  Al Gore could fix this if he were so inclined.  Why are people dying for my Mac, your iPhone, your iPad?  Something is wrong here, don't you think?  I am very disappointed.
