Apple stressed its commitment to ensuring healthy and safe conditions for all the workers in its supply chain. Apple’s medical team that visited Pegatron to investigate the death of young worker used the opportunity to ensure that the general working conditions in the Shangai factory are according to Apple’s standards. Pegatron is engaged in assembling Apple’s iPhone and iPad mini.
Pegatron officials also concluded that the worker’s death was not related to the working conditions in the factory before the Apple’s medical team came to investigate. According to Charles Lin, Pegatron spokesman, the worker was employed by Pegatron for a very short time and that his pneumonia could not have been caused by the environment in the factory. He also stressed that the young worker, although under-aged, managed to gain employment in Pegatron by using his cousin’s ID.
New York’s rights organization China Labor Watch discovered that the late young worker passed a medical exam required by Pegatron for all new workers, and was in good health at the time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
