Apple Develops iShiv for Rioting Foxconn WorkersBy: Josh Wolford - September 26, 2012
As you may have heard, a large riot rocked Foxconn’s Taiyuan plant in Northern China earlier this week. According to reports, the riot involved 2,000 people and took place near the worker’s dormitories. When it was all said and done, the riot resulted in a few dozen injuries and multiple arrests.
According to social media posts, the riots began, in part, when security guards attacked a worker. This isn’t the first time that a Foxconn plant has hosted a riot, as one in Chengdu earlier this year involved a similar set of circumstances.
Of course, Foxconn is well known as the makers of Apple products, including the iPhone 5. It only makes sense that Apple would feel responsible and want to help the rioting workers who shoulder their outsourced burden.
Team Coco imagines the device Apple would make in this situation, and it’s pretty hilarious. Check out the (obviously comedic) bit below:
