    I know companies are built to make money, but since Apple is so concerned about being "green" they also should be concerned about working with suppliers and companies that uphold the same labour and human rights standards as US companies do. Not paying attention to this may hinder Apples good rep and recent stock rise. Food for thought.

    So, to Apple, this "prototype iPhone" is worth more to them than a life? I know Apple has rediculous, and I mean /REDICULOUS/ product control (as all of us jailbreakers know), but this is wayyyyyyyyy over the line. Sad, over a stupid iPhone. Does it really mean that much to Apple?

    I'm more then pissed that I saw this, And I don't doubt a thing they said... Even more so.. It pisses me off that we spend so much on these phones, and ipods, and you HEAR **** LIKE THIS! are you kidding? This makes me want to stop using Apple all together if they are going to out source to a company that does this ****.. Or is even a part of, or mentioned.. Will add more later.. people at door... Maybe it's the police looking for my IPhone..

    RIP SUN... My thoughts are with you... No matter what the problem was... The company dropped the ball..

    Its not really Apples fault so much, Foxconn are the ones who did all the illegal searching, "torture" and eventually caused his death. Foxconn did it because they wanted to keep up good relations with Apple. Sigh.

    I wonder who actually has the iPhone? He should be destroyed, via implosion.

    I'm pretty sure it wasn't suicide... It would have cost Foxconn a lot of money and trouble if this didn't happen.

    I wonder if apple would go as far as to make sure the kid's organs are donated to Steve Jobs.

    Well, real or fake I'm sure Apple will release a Suicide App to try and remedy any future problems. Anyway...

    Seriously though? Jumped out of a window over the loss of an iPhone? I've been to combat twice, wounded once, and lost a number of my friends, and this dope jumps over a friggin phone? I'm with Natural Selection on this one. What an idiot. Stress? That isn't stress. Being shot at and not knowing where the 'rounds are coming from is stress.

    You know, I hear suicide referred to as a cowards way out all the time. But in all seriousness, it takes a lot of balls to actually do it. So many forms of suicide can be so painful. For instance, in school I've learned from my one professor that in 9 cases out of 10 where a person tries to shoot themselves in the mouth up to the brain, they move the gun as pulling the trigger, and shoot themselves in the back of the throat. They then sit there, bleeding out until they finally die. It's way off topic, but I don't think you're a coward to do something as painful as killing yourself. Some people are just in such a bad situation that you really don't have much of a choice. And I don't doubt some corporations take "law" into their own hands.

    But yeah, sooo off topic. This story actually made me feel bad. It's a shame it had to come to that. And if it comes to suicide like that, I do believe something is being left untold. You don't just jump for losing something. I feel like he was threatened. And I wouldn't doubt it.

    I'm a counselor at a psychiatric facility and have seen suicide first-hand, unfortunately. It's usually not over the trigger, but over the perception of the trigger - which is totally dependent on the person's state of mind.

    I've literally seen someone commit suicide over not getting soda.

    In stressful situations, 20% of the stress is caused by the actual stressor... 80% is caused by the perception of the stress.

    And to clarify, it's in NO WAY a cowardice act - well, a majority of cases at least.

    OK. Whatever.

    Therein lies the beauty of the internet. One is free to write, read, publish and believe anything they choose.

    I'm not saying it's not true. I'm simply saying there's not near enough real proof yet to satify my BS detector (which is pretty refined after 45+ years in this industry). If it's good enough for you guys, that's up to you.
    Holy **** how old are you grandpa? You have to be at least 63 if "you've been in the industry for 45+ years".

    People keep on saying that Apple is the villain...It's their partner company, FoxConn, not them. Apple actually treats their employees like human beings.

    Sun was tranporting the iPhones, so I read on MacRumours.
