A Geek’s Dilemma

I recently read a few articles from last year about the alleged abuses at one of the factories that produce products for Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, and others.  I immediately looked over at my iPad and wondered what kind of conditions it was produced in.  It creates a dilemma similar to the problem of buying coffee beans that were purchased from farmers at unfair prices.  Below, I visualized the dilemma… on my iPad.

Is there another option?  I’d be interested in your opinions on what, if anything, we can do.

  1. Thanks for sharing the angst we all (or at least some of us) feel. I’m not sure what the gospel-centered response is, but this is provocative and makes me wanna investigate further. Love the visual above… since you asked, I can only offer this off-the-cuff comment… maybe a third option involves getting media-news sources to follow up with after-the-fact stories, getting eye witnesses, victims responses, etc… You know, more than just reporting of what “is” but what could/should be? That is to say, if journalism could/should be involved on such levels.
