As I was scrolling through the technology news today trying to figure out what I would blog about, I surprisingly saw many stories going against Apple.  This was odd to me because Apple seems to be taking the market by storm. One of the stories was about Samsung and how they beat Apple as the 2011 number one Smart Phone maker. However, a different article caught my eye.  Many people are complaining about Apple and how they abuse their factory workers.  Apple CEO Tim Cook, quickly responded on the matter with a lengthy letter to all Apple employees denying the allegations.

“…Any suggestion that we don't care is patently false and offensive to us. As you know better than anyone, accusations like these are contrary to our values. It's not who we are."

I predict if the accusations are false then this is the last we will hear of the matter, but if they are true, it is possible some factory workers will come out of the woodwork and give interviews to media outlets. If that is the case, things won’t look so good for Apple. What are your thoughts? Do you think Apple would treat their workers in such a way?
