Foxconn China Factory Reopens after Massive Fight

One of Foxconn's Chinese factories was forced to close yesterday when a massive fight broke out that damaged equipment. Reports indicate that about 2000 workers were involved in a fight that left 40 people injured. It's unclear what caused the brawl with some reports indicating a disagreement between workers and a restaurant owner started the violence.

Other reports indicate that the disagreement started after a worker got into an argument with a Foxconn security guard. The factory has opened back up and Foxconn hasn't indicated whether the closure will affect supplies of the iPhone 5.

About the Geek Mind

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.
