Foxconn Hacked, Making Its Passwords Publicly Available
Foxconn has more to worry about. As well as struggling to deal with allegations of exploitative working conditions in its factories, it’s now had the bad fortune of being hacked, having login and password information spread across the web.
A hacker group called SwaggSec gained access to Foxconn’s internal networks through an unpatched copy of Internet Explorer that was being used by a Foxconn employee.
SwaggSec have distributed a 6.04MB file — through Demonoid and The Pirate Bay — which contains login and password information for Foxconn’s email servers, intranets, and various other company-affiliated sites. The affected servers are now closed.

On  June 5, 1989, a young couple waits beneath Jianguomenwai bridge on the  fringe of Beijing’s diplomatic area, as PLA tanks roll above them.  Martial law had been in place since the end of May. Liu Heung Shing,  1989.

Apple - Hungry Beast

Apple’s ‘Think Different’ advertising campaign. Apple surpasses Microsoft^ as the world’s number one tech company. I’m a Mac. 10 workers commit suicide at Foxconn hardware contractors in China. After an Apple enquiry, Foxconn introduces counseling, cuts worker’s weeks to 60 hours, and strings nets to catch suicide attempts. 137 Wintek (contractor) workers get sick as a result of working with the n-hexane chemical. These workers say Apple is lying when it claims that they all were since cured, and say that neither Wintek, nor Apple have paid for follow-up medical treatment.

Many of your gadgets are built on third world labour. One estimate calculated that if iPads were built by American workers, they would retail for $14, 970 each. 

iTunes blocks apps which donate straight to charities. Apple has had no philanthropic division since it was shut by Steve Jobs in 1997*. Jobs has been called to answer a class action lawsuit accusing Apple of an iTunes monopoly. Apple takes 30% of all content sold through iTunes, and has launched its subscription service, which will also take 30% from publishers. Apple freezes Adobe’s Flash out of its devices. Adobe capitulates.

1984 looks a lot like 2011.

^Microsoft discontinues its iPod competitor, the Zune.

*Apple is one of the least philanthropic companies in the world

Artist Spotlight: Jef Aerosol

I saw this piece of street art during my 2008 trip to Paris not knowing the artist or what it even was about exactly.  A few months ago, I looked over my Paris album again on my computer and came across this picture once more.  I could find nothing distinct about it that would help me in tracing its origin until I noticed the repeated stencil of “Risque De Rêve” next to the stenciling of the boy.  Looked it up on the internet and I discovered the French artist Jef Aerosol. http://www.flickr.com/people/jefaerosol/

My picture:

It’s fascinating because he has these signature stencils he does all over the world.  He just repeats those same figures in strange places.  I think it’s genius!

I think I like the “sitting boy” the best.  I don’t know why.
