Foxconn Suicides iPhone App
The suicides at Foxconn, the Chinese plant that makes iPhones for Apple, got Israeli journalist and blogger Orna Coussin thinking (Heb.):
The last few days I’ve been thinking about a new iPhone application. […] The application I’m developing will do a very simple thing: each time a worker at the Shenzhen iPhone assembly line commits suicide, something will happen. The question is what: will the gadget jump? Shut down? Scream? Sound a memorial siren and everybody around it will observe a moment of silence? Anyone got an idea?
