iRage: Apple's FoxConn China Plant Damaged As Riots Resume

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the riots at Apple's FoxConn Chengdu plant in June, engadget is reporting that FoxConn's Taiyuan plant - the scene of earlier strikes over salary disputes back in March - has suffered damage as workers riot. Police are on site to control the crowd and while the motive is not clear, it is apparently unrelated to the recent anti-Japan protests. It appears - based on the clip and photos below - that much damage has been done in the process.

My big chance to BTFD in AAPL!

Looks like Apple bought an island from Japan.  It was only a matter of time.

Apple is a big copycat.  British Communications Headquarters.  Apple Cupertino Headquarters plan.

It's a circle, an exact copy of a circle! I say sue them since circles are obviously patented.

Ero, the iPhone is a rectangle.  Samsung Galaxy is an exact copy of a rectangle.  Sue Samsung since rectangles are obviously patented.

See how stupid you are, Apple fanboy?

iBelieve the protests are starting to mutate.  I didn't hear a single "alu akbar"?

Dont worry about that, by 'american' fantasy on here, being paid to report about 'americanism' on this site should be enough to get me out of the line, far from troubles...

Last night I'm standing out in the back yard with the dogs and the horses,

and I'm looking up at the Heavens and Jupiter is moving like a baby, or an angel.

It's got two or 3 heads (Jupiter and the moons) and the light beaming from it is moving like formed limbs. Seriously. I stared for an hour or two. There were moments where they moved like bolts of lightning, and then there were moments where it danced like the Red Kachina.

I shit you not. 

Take a look at the 2nd SUN NOW photo here at nasa soho

It was intended that way...I don't think the young these days (obsessed with every internet dropping with no time or inclination to research and observe truth) could handle psychedelics...they can barely handle reality as presented to them now, its probably best this way ;-)

Yeah, I remember Orange Sunshine and Purple Microdot.

There's nothing like doing a seven way hit of LSD25 (and losing three days of your life, surviving it & the flasbacks) to get your priorities straight in

I was sixteen the last time I dropped and that was ain't for the "weak minded" and it was unintentional...and for the kiddies out there who think this would be can find yourself believing whatever voices in your head says is the truth...>>>NEVER<<< believe them and just will change, in just a few minutes...but your time will be relative ;-)

You will come to understand you really can't fly, gravity is still a powerful force and no one is immortal...especially you on acid, no matter how many lives you get on X-Box now, you only have one in the real world.

I remember a friend, we were tripping with, leaving us to go to the bathroom.

He came back about 10 minutes later and said he "forgot" how to shit.

"Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy."

What a dick, fuck him! He's an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn't he take off from the ground first? Check it out. You don't see ducks lining up to catch elevators to fly South. They fly from the ground, you moron. Quit ruining it for everybody. He's a moron, he's dead, good. We lost a moron, fucking celebrate. Boy I just felt the world get lighter - we lost a moron. - Bill Hicks

you hung out with ppl who deserved a major butt kicking for doing that to you.... seriously

nmewn's picture

It was an honest mistake, we found out three hours later when the couple we got it from came back from the movies.

The best way to describe it (visually) is a dried droplet on a piece of paper about half the size of a postage stamp, meant to be cut evenly into seven pieces of paper with a razor blade. We had all done blotter, window pane microdot (you name it) before and one "piece" meant one hit. This wasn't.

My best friend who I was with (he was just drinking & smoking) freaked out more than I did when we found out...all I could do is enjoy the ride at that point. I had thirty second to one minute flash backs for a month or two after, every week or so till those went away...walls moving, gound tipping, vivid colors...that sort of thing.

I can say I've been there done that, lived to tell of it and moved on...its not anything I would encourage anyone to try.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time for Bernake's fiat paper to die.

I've been to hell and back a couple of times.... Bernank's mind, and the people who tell him what to do (oh yes), only reminds me of hell and what it was like. but affecting a hell of a lot more people than just lowly me - MD 20/20 working

This strike will be good for sales, but bad for the brand.  AAPL stock will lose value when it is re-weighted, and the avg PT is only $770 (a 10% gain from last Friday, if all goes well).  My advice: short AAPL.

AAPL sauce.

Gooey and sweet, but somehow unsatisfiing.


ptoemmes's picture

They might consider building iCrap here...wonder how much more it would cost?  It's not as if the AAPL fanatical fan boi crowd would likley really care if it cost up to 2X as much - subsidized - which I doubt.

djsmps's picture

That would cut their margin too much. It would have to cost much more than 2x. Most of the people I know who have iPhones and iPads would pay any amount of money.

As far as I know, Earth is the only place in the Universe that values money as a Need.

Ranking it right up there with light, water, music and sex. 

Humans are an odd bunch.

doesn't matter how much it costs - until your daddy has to start actually paying rent, because he hasn't paid 2,000/month on the mortgage for the last 5 year.  or until your snap cards get cut and you actually have to start paying for food from the illegal wages you make working in whatever, kitchen, picking up trash, construction, delivering papers.

it's gonna be bitch for those people, but even worse for retail.  and bennie and big bad bama know that.  if they can't enroll them in the war - gonna be a big bad problem for the prison system.

wwiii - wwii all over again.  the ones that win the lottery of life come home to a booming war economy.  who's going to be the sucker to pick the fight?  i hate to say it, but nobody is gonna beat the us.  there is just too much talent in immigrants - people who know the land, speak the language, can intercept and translate, etc.

europe has no stomach for it.  no stomach for the greed either, that's why goldmine was so easy to walk all over them.

"Who's going to be the One to pick the fight?"

I'll go ahead and pick Jupiter.

Think of the Solar System as an atom,

now how tough does your money make you feel versus Zeus and 

his bolts of lightning?

It's an electric universe. 

You fill your soul with energy, not money.


"Nobody is gonna beat the US?"

The US could easily obtain a flawless victory over the US.

NewThor: it's time to take a little break from the jimsonweed.
