If you bring your nice shiny iPad to a crowded outdoor concert like that, you deserve to have it sputtering and busted in a pool of stale beer before the day is over.

Windows programs: Hit close, program takes eight minutes to close because of junk scripts and bad memory issues.
Apple programs: Well, just take a look above.
Linux programs: Search on various internet forums to figure out how to close a program for twenty minutes, at which point you realize you forgot to add the extra .dll which adds the logout shortcut. Once installed, closes perfectly every time.
Apple takes most of the flak for this marketing strategy, but the truth is that companies have been doing it practically since the concept of "companies" was invented. Economists even have a dedicated term for it.
Worst office dance party ever. Also, while it's nice for Foxconn to imply "none of you will ever ever get laid off just because we're having robots do your jobs instead," does it really work that way? When you're moving "higher up the value chain," usually that implies more training or education. Are you really going to train over a million workers, Foxconn? Terrible working conditions suck, but so does getting laid off of a job that you were desperate enough to hang on to.
I guess the moral is that when you complain you're being treated like robots, consider whether or not you could be a robot and still be capable of doing your job.
