+ - Apple to list companies that build its products an->

Submitted by mathfeel
mathfeel (937008) writes "Indulge me in some post hoc reasoning here: After last week's episode of This American Life "Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory", a very interesting show, Apple announced that "For the first time, Apple has released a list of companies that build its products around the world. In another first, the company also announced that it will allow an independent third party to check on working conditions at those factories, and to make its findings public." But before you celebrate Apple's gesture (or complain about the potential increase in electronic price): "It doesn’t appear that Apple’s partnership with the FLA will increase transparency in this regard either. The FLA will audit 5% of the factories that make Apple products, but like Apple, it will not name which ones it checks or where it finds violations.""
