    So are most of the minerals for the iPhone 5 mined in the Mojave Desert? I ask because "conflict minerals" is actually a big subject right now. The US passed requirements in 2010 that companies report whether they use minerals imported from countries like the "Democratic" Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), as a lot of the profits from those mines goes to prop up dictatorial regimes.
