reported that a iPhone manufacturer deployed 100 counsellors to protect the 800.000 employees in China from committing suicide. They decided this after at least seven employees committed suicides this year in its Chinese factories. Geoffrey Crothall, communications director at Hong Kong-based China Labour Bulletin said “It’s not just related to Foxconn. There’s a lot of pressure on young workers in factories all over China. Very few people pay attention to other factories, Foxconn is always in the spotlight, largely because of its relationship to Apple.” Sun Danyong (25) committed suicide in July after a iPhone Prototype was missing, a 24 year old worker died after she jumped of her apartment block in Shenzhen three days before a worker died from injuries after falling from a company dormitory on May 14. » Apple Deployed 100 Counsellors To Prevent Suicide

iPhone_OS_4.0_beta_3
The new Beta “3” of OS 4.0 has been released for developers. But what…. Its already removed and changed to Beta “2” again. Yea that’s right avoid Beta 3, it is not sure why Apple removed Beta 3 but it is probably something serious “overheating/trashing of SDK folders” or something like that. But some developers got the change to test Beta 3, and we know some new features and fixes. » iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 3 Released & Removed Again!

adobe-flashWe all know by now Apple is not allowing flash on the iPhone, HTML-5 is the future Steve Jobs said. Because of this, Adobe will concentrate on the Google Androids and will demonstrate a version of Flash for Google’s Android software in May at the Google I/O conference.


As a message to Apple they give away Android phones running Flash to employees. Face it guys, there will never be “built in” Flash on the iPhone. » Free Android Phone For Adobe Employees
