The Macalope Weekly: Occam’s Electric Razor
Boy, it sure would be nice if we had a silver bullet that would magically improve working conditions at Chinese factories.
Well, good news, everybody! InfoWorld’s Bill Snyder’s got one!
Fun reading for anyone that appreciates the Macalope’s irreverent take on Apple media coverage. The back and forth about Snyder’s article is particularly biting:
For example, the Times wrote about an explosion at another Foxconn plant in Chengdu, China, caused when a cloud of aluminum dust ignited, killing four workers. You simply can’t see dangerous conditions like that during an escorted tour.
Right. Because they schedule all the accidental aluminum dust fires for when they’re not conducting tours.
[Editors’ Note: Each week the Macalope skewers the worst of the week’s coverage of Apple and other technology companies. In addition to being a mythical beast, the Macalope is not an employee of Macworld. As a result, the Macalope is always free to criticize any media organization. Even ours.]
