"Apple's outrageous success has a dark side. But does that mean it's time to stop buying Apple products?"
Lots of press lately about the working conditions in China, with the New York Times article the latest summation of the problems. But talks of boycotting, or even the few that will boycott won't fix the problem. The fix is going to be when Apple puts enough pressure on their suppliers. I'm with the author, and he makes a valid point. So if you do choose to boycott you better be ready to boycott a lot of different types of products, because Apple is not the only company that has suppliers with less than stellar working conditions. They are just the latest company to get hit with the bad press.
