    I wonder if they are interested in some kind of students swap?

    Ahh, well either way it's gotta open some doors for them since it's not just an everyday item.

    I wonder why Sony and Microsoft are not scrutinising these company's that are producing for them?

    When you're 14 you're old enough to work, it's not uncommon to see 14 and 15 year olds do the night shift at mcdonalds or work 12 hour shifts with half hour break in many Australian manufacturing facilities.

    So what's the big deal here ??

    If the PS3 and xbone components were manufactured and assembled in USA or Europe it would cost 2 or 3 times what it does now.

    If that's the case then that's the institution's fault not even Foxconn's let alone Sony's.

    In saying that, we'd be better off if the people were even mildly content and not abused at these places. Maybe not our wallets, but conscience.
