Apple isn’t the only company that uses Foxconn. In fact, almost any relevant company you can name off the top of your head is currently using or have used Foxconn in the past. Apple does everything in their power to make sure Foxconn engages in fair labor practice — more than any other company that uses Foxconn, like Samsung. This is well documented. Look it up if you would like.

I didn’t think people like this existed anymore. Kudos to him and good luck to her.
I hope they also find other avenues for revenue. There are plenty of donation sites out there (one specifically for people with cancer) along with other sites like Reddit — I’m sure they wouldn’t have any issue raising all the money she needs to beat this thing.

This really isn’t that new. My 2 year old snowboard boats tie up this way. Great to see it make its way to boots though. I may just buy a few.

My sent message blanked Obama but my received message showed up just fine. Weird.
Side note – TheBlaze really needs to update their commenting. Use Disqus or something. Very hard to see replies and thus engage its readership.

This happened right near my house and I have to tell ya – Byron Township; Byron Center; all areas surrounding is a very nice little country town outside of Grand Rapids but every once in awhile you get the meth heads from the outskirts come in and raise hell like this woman did.
This is exactly who I pictured when I first heard the report.
Seeing that her son was the one that ratted her out is just the icing on the cake. LOL

This is the dumbest thing I’ve heard all week.
If you can’t “afford” to go to a wedding then you shouldn’t go….? You must be a pretty shallow person to be upset at somebody YOU invited to YOUR wedding because they didn’t/couldn’t provide a high enough $ amount gift. My wedding was a month ago and I cringe at the idea of being mad at my guests because the envelope box with $2400 didn’t cover my $12,000 bill.
Words can’t describe how stupid this post makes you look – not much better than the arrogant, narcissistic lesbians in this article.

Better than what I would have given them. Then again, I would never go to a same-sex wedding.

I don’t know, I think it looks kind of cool. It’s not like you’re burning it or anything.

In an ongoing effort to use unfamiliar languages, I’m currently learning Dragon shouts. Stand out of my way before I unleash some !!Fus Ro Dah!! on your ass!

I’m torn on this one. On one hand, I agree with the baker and probably would have done the same. On the hand, business is business nowadays and if it means I can feed my kids, then I probably would have baked that cake. That said, nothing would stop me from charging you double. :-P

@Roguerequest – you just need to stop talking about things that you obviously know nothing about. Windows doesn’t sell hardware. If you want to compare Windows to OS X then let’s compare. OS X upgrades are 29.99. Windows upgrades (Win7 Home Premium) was 165 before Win8. Who’s more expensive? We can compare tablet prices too but why declare checkmate twice?
You can try to make the argument that Apple overprices their hardware but every valid non-bias report out there will tell you that Macs outlast a typical PC by more than double its lifespan. In other words, you go by a PC and I’ll by a Mac. In five years we’ll come back and compare overall lifespan price, that is of course if your PC can last that long. In terms of Ultrabooks, Airs are priced competitively and even in some cases cheaper.

If this is being taught as an act of terror, then I would love to hear what they think about the Boston Massacre.

I love your choice of words. Demoncrats? Obozoids? When are people like you going to grow up and save face? It’s this crap that gives Conservatives a bad name.

Indiana voted Republican.

Video games aren’t just for Liberals. People like you are what gives Conservatives the bad perception of being old and angry. You only have yourself to blame for this election. Show some respect.
Signed – a young conservative that enjoys playing video games.

You must not have ever been introduced to Halo. The buzz around this game started before many people even knew which studio would produce the 4th installment. This isn’t marketing – this is grandstanding a cultural icon.

Even a 2 year old would know to reset and restore the device! This guy deserves to loose his job due to complete stupidity.
That's the spirit, Ed! Punish him, if only because he did not know how to properly deceive others. Oh man, if only he would have been better at falsifying integrity. Poor TSA agent. Now he deserves what he gets.
Is Ed related to Chuck7884

I’m laughing at how ignorant some of these comments are. You do realize that it is illegal to ride a bike on a sidewalk right? You’re considered an illegal pedestrian and can be cited if anything happened to you while riding on a sidewalk (car backs out of a driveway and hits you; you hit a pedestrian walking; etc.) – look it up. Cyclists are required to ride on the road like this by law (with the exception if expressways)

Are we really THAT surprised? I mean, they are French after all…
