Submission + - 2012 Will Be the Year of the Android Tablet (informationweek.com)

lseltzer writes: "The iPad has dominated the high-end tablet market so far, but that is about to change. At CES in Las Vegas in a couple weeks you will see tablets running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) everywhere and at prices that will make an iPad a lot harder to justify. The competition from the OEM model in the Android markets will massively shift market share away from Apple, just as it has done in the smart phone market."

Submission + - The Crimes of the Chinese, Foxconn, Steve Jobs and (betanews.com)

lseltzer writes: Mike Daisey's monologue performance challenges Apple customers and techies in general to think about the abusive conditions under which their products are made. "The facility is a high-tech Dickensian workhouse where underage (down to 13 year olds) are made to perform simple, repetitive actions over and over again through brutally-long shifts." Daisey describes the environment at Foxconn in Shenzhen during the string of suicides there. But how much of this argument is true and how much is just polemic? IS a bad job better than no job at all? Millions of Chinese seem to think so.
