iPhone live! #101: You won't be disappointed


I just finished talking with my local AT&t dealer and I was inquiring about an early upgrade for my iPhone. I am eligible for an upgrade on July 2nd, but of course I want the new iPhone the day it comes out. He said that I could not get an earlier upgrade BUT I would only have to wait a few days after the new iPhone is realeased. He said I would still get it during the "rush." Looks like the new iPhone will be unleashed late June, if my sources are correct.

I enjoy your show very much,99% of the time. However,your last one,in which your discussed the suicides at the Chinese and Taiwanese factories was terrible,and very I'll-informed! Are you and you co-host actually serious about considering the rates of suicides there,you call it "within the normal range of Chinese suicides"?? I'm no Apple-Basher,I am an Apple stock-holder,and use an iPhone ,iMac,and MacBook Pro everyday! I also know that Dell,HP,Nokia,and many others have their equipment built there,for obvious reasons. I know that there has been taped beatings and intimidation,didn't you do a LITTLE research before commenting on this? People's lives are being risked in countries like this,to make our little "gadgets and toys" that we love so much! They make $130/month,and they are so poor,that they work in the worst conditions imaginable,and yes I'd accept a lower profit-level,in order for them,you,or my fellow Americans to make more money and live like a human-being! If you're not gonna do justice to the subject,and not even inform yourselves adequately,or fake a little concern for other humans,then you should have left the subject alone COMPLETELY! When is the last time you felt like jumping off a building,because of a work-situation? You added insult to injury by making JOKES ABOUT IT!!! Americans can make this stuff,you know! American-labor doesn't make the price for a product go up 300% either! You guys blew it,this time,and you should be ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!

@Ivan if you know for a fact that they are beating and intimidateing the Chinese workers, why are you still buying and using apple products.
I think suicide of any kind is awful, how ever the Chinese Goverment does not care about there own people, if they did they would be doing alot more about the rash of suicides that has recently taken place at the factory.
People are entitled to there own opinions, I don't know if the facts that they said on the show were right or wrong. But I did not see any thing wrong with what was said about the suicides situation at the factory but that again is my opinion.

I haven't listened since that night of the pie-eating, the yawning, and the "does anyone even still use their iPhone anymore?" topic.

RE: the above comments, I thought the discussion about the Foxconn suicides was appropriately handled. I thought this was one of the best episodes of iPhone Live in recent memory. The commentary and analysis was excellent and Rene did a good job keeping everyone on track (though the jokes are always hilarious and welcome).

Where can I get the I call you-iPhone remix song because I want to put that as a ringtone? So where can I download that?

regards to the Foxconn suicide story, I think we have to forget the suicide stats and look into the background of the workers that have committed suicide,
the average pay for a Foxconn worker is $157 Monthly.
Most come from rural areas and are sent out by their families to go and make money for their families. For most it is their first time away from home, they are faced with the pressure to bring or send money back home.
Foxconn pays $14,650 to the families of those who have died at their factory.
some young workers might find that this payment will help their family more than them working...

You Tech bloggers spent endless nights hunting for the right news and never get it right. Stop confusing people, damn! You want to make a buck, do some else M..F...rs. The iPhone will come out you'd never figured out what was the real deal. Do not read you at all. F....

Hey, found your site by accident doing a search on Google but I?ll definitely be coming back. ? How can I believe in God when only last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?
