Foxcon shutters killer polishing line

Written by Nick Farell


iPads not going to be so shiny
Apple's partner Foxcon has shut down part of its plant which was responsible for the explosion which killed three and injured 15 more.

The outfit has decided to temporarily close its polishing workshops at all of its factories while it investigates the exact cause of the explosion. A company spokesman said that the closure could last up to two days while the workshops pass the test.

The cause of the accident is thought to be related to a build-up of combustible aluminium dust inside a polishing workshop. The Tame Apple press, while glossing over the fact that people died, have emphasised fears that the iPad might be in short supply.

The fear is that with workshops closed, a bottleneck will likely occur, because Foxcon will not be able to get the shiny gadgets shiny enough.

Which is very cancerous. They spray it over heavily populated areas in America, Europe and Australia and it's known as chemtrails (which are not the same as contrails). Good example video...
