itwbennett writes: "That army of robotic assembly line workers we mentioned yesterday apparently can't get started soon enough. As many as 2,000-3,000 workers are on strike at Foxconn's Zhengzhou factory, upset at stricter quality control requirements with the iPhone 5 and having to work through a national holiday this week. 'According to workers, multiple iPhone 5 production lines from various factory buildings were in a state of paralysis for the entire day,' China Labor Watch said. Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo are both blocking searches in Chinese for "Foxconn strikes"."
