They gave Danyong's girlfriend an Apple MacBook, so I don't see what the problem is. MY GOD! Somebody at foxconn had to come up with a plan to compensate the girlfriend, and the best thing they could come up with was a cheap macbook. Isn't that insulting? Imagine you died as a result of mental stress from work, and your company gave your significant other a laptop. Oh, this World.... For all that it's worth, I hope this gentleman has found peace, and that his family and loved ones can remain strong and get through this.

And why are we supposed to think Microsoft is evil and Apple good? Yes, I know this is Foxconn, but by Apple using them - it's condoning this type of thug-like behavior.

Given China's huge market for knock-off products, doesn't it seem a little curious that we now know this guy had an actual history of "losing" products before as well?

My theory is he was leaking Foxconn manufactured products to those to make the fakes, and when he did so with one of Apple's prototypes he was finally "suicided" off his balcony due to his actions.

And now the press is being warned not to talk to his family? Perhaps they view the situation differently? The official version of this story is fishy.

Also, isn't there speculation that Foxconn employees murdered Danyong by throwing him off his balcony? That's what I feel happened. I don't think he committed suicide. He just happened to jump off his balcony after they kicked down his door and ripped his apartment apart, right.

foxconn makes a lot of components for other companies too not just apple, check the back back panel of your motherboard. You'd be surprised.

The Mafia-style control and management is common around Chinese societies. Part of the reasons for that is due to lack of transparency in legal system of PRC. PRC is also run by commies Mafia-style. If you are an "useful" individual, then you'd likely be contacted by some Mafia-like entities who offers you a deal that you can't refuse.

One Chinese philosopher wrote that the Tao of survival is to be useless, and he wrote that down 2500 years ago.

I would be interested in seeing the Chinese government hanging a few corrupt Foxconn execs, if it is found that their employees murdered Danyong.

Sun Danyong's girlfriend was in the market for a computer that was worth as much as a human life. We told her - you find it, you keep it.

Not only do they make cruddy motherboards (i wish I didn't get the Renaissance), they're not too keen on employee relations. I hadn't planned on buying their gear after my MB/poor bios experience w/ them, but now I think I can be pretty sure I'm not getting their hardware again.

I didn't make myself clear in the last post. I know someone who works in Foxconn, and their internal management is harsh and brutal, just like every other Taiwanese OEMs. However, they don't go out and punish people for no reason. There are many trade secrets which they need to protect, and others want to steal. Although it looks like Foxconn is the one to be blamed, and reality might be even more sinister than it looks. A lot "fake" or "bandit" products in China were made by no other than front companies of PLA.

Well...A Chinese in china is actually one out of 1.3 Billion Chinese...
Nobody ever cares your life in China, that's the truth
I've seen TRUE picture which some small village in china actually KILLS and EATS
young women, and is consider a NORMAL tradition in that particular village and they even allow pictures taken when the girl is slaughtered, they slaughter the girl like slaughtering a chicken, and the MAIN reason they started to slaughter young girls and women to eat IS they're bored with pork, beef, chicken or whatever..and nothing SEEMS to be done over there...

PM me for the pictures if you want
