Submission + - 2 dead, 16 injured at iPad factory (theregister.co.uk)

Ykant writes: The Register (and other news sources) are reporting that 16 people were injured and two killed after an explosion at the Foxconn plant near Chengdu.

The plant is a manufacturing location for the iPad2, and is also believed to be a fabrication facility for the next iPhone.

Footage of the factory and evacuation is available as well.


Submission + - Dead man's Wikipedia entry changed in advance

Ykant writes: According to an AP article, the Wikipedia entry of pro wrestler Chris Benoit (who was found dead in his home earlier this week, along with his wife and child) was updated at 12:01 a.m. Monday, about 14 hours before authorities say the bodies were found. It said he missed a match Saturday night "stemming from the death of his wife." An Atlanta news station reports that a Wikipedia user has admitted to making the edits, but had no advance knowledge of the event, calling it a "terrible coincidence".
