    Racists who would rather the Chinese factory workers remain impoverished out on the rice paddies... and not offered the opportunity to make higher wages on manufacturing lines.

    That's one perspective. Another is that employment that makes corporations wealthy should have certain minimal standards for employees that place them above the level of an indentured servant. We saw something like this a decade ago in Saipan "made in America" Sweat Shops.

    I think the graphic should end with "...and sell them for three times as much as it cost to build them".

    That pic means it is designed for threads like this and to sensationalize.

    It's the Fox News of crudely made graphics.

    Would you be satisfied if they sold them at cost? They charge what the market will bear. So long as rich people (or poor people with misplace priorities:p) keep shelling out the big bucks, :apple: will keep the prices high.

    Maybe if all the iPhone owners stop buying them, :apple: will get the message and lower prices. And if that day comes, we will all be addressing Sarah Palin as "Madam President.":eek:

    Other companies don't exploit people, only Apple does. Always remember. Apple is Hitler, Stalin and Mao combined :p

    Why would an Android user do this?

    I don't get your logic on this. Especially since Android manufacturers follow the same practice.
